Hartmann Optik

    Established in 1980, Hartmann specializes in customized horn-rimmed spectacles and sunglasses, as well as a range of contact lenses and other accessories made from horn. (For those who aren't familiar with the substance: horn is a natural material with color schemes and patterns that cannot be artificially reproduced.) At Hartmann you can also find Murano glass bracelettes and necklaces. The store's owner, Erich Hartmann, is a perfectionist with regard to the materials he uses and is a firm believer in traditional craftsmanship. This might explain why the shop has its own workshop, which is run by Mr. Hartmann's son Stefan and another master craftsman. Their work requires intense precision, so it goes without saying that their manual labor is combined with the latest in optometric technology. Because customizing a product to perfection takes time, there is usually a waiting period of about 3-4 weeks for each piece. Hartmann's sleek, art nouveau store space is fairly minimalist. There aren't all that many pairs of eyeglasses on display, as most are made specially for the customer. There is, however, a showcase that exhibits the work of contemporary designers, both local and international, which changes on a monthly basis. With its flawless products and tasteful interior, Hartmann is a feast for the eyes in more ways than one.Show lessRead more
