This time the allure and the inspiration come from art. Launching as a continuation of the Nordic Light collection, Fleye Copenhagen’s new Signature collection is defined by modern silhouettes and unique colorways. Fleye introduces 40 new Signature eyewear and sunglasses styles exploring color contrasts, beautiful reflections and the remarkable Scandinavian light.

With a modern take on the Skagen Painters, a renowned Danish icon from the 19th century, Fleye have created a Signature collection that captures the painters’ fabulous composition of colors and light. The Skagen Painters were a group of Scandinavian artists, who settled in the village of Skagen, the northernmost point of Denmark, to portray the remarkable light and scenery. It was especially this unique quality of light that had drawn them. A translucent light that merged the sea and sky. Anyone who has visited Skagen will agree that the place truly is something special, with its natural sceneries and fascinating light. Fleye experiments with various materials with different characteristics; solid, transparent, glossy and liquid, to see how the surfaces interacted with each other and with light.

These stunning abstract artworks, captured by still life photographer, Ida Emilie Risager, led to the new designs for the Nordic Light Signature collection. Design concepts such as transparency, depth and structure have been applied to create the collection using a varied selection of materials, from light acetates, to warm carbon/ wood and ne beta-titanium. Each frame becomes its own artistic expression when textures are combined, colors are chosen, and reflections are created.
