DITA || BORIS BIDJAN SABERI
LIMITED EDITION EYEWEAR
COLLABORATION


INSPIRED BY THE WORLD OF HIGH-ALTITUDE
ALPINE CLIMBING AND THE INDUSTRIAL
PHYSICALITY OF WELDING GLASSES.


DITA’S collaboration with Boris Bidjan Saberi
re-interprets the traditional mountaineering
frame with design and manufacturing innovations
that combine a specially formulated raw Japanese
titanium with advanced optical engineering.

Designed with functionality and craft in mind,
the frame’s minimalist appearance draws upon
the engineering of an innovative titanium unibody
frame.

Manufactured by some of Japan’s oldest and
most respected craftsmen, the frame is engineered
with a single piece of titanium instead of two
separate halves joined with a visible seam. This
unbroken titanium structure utilizes a tension-based
rimlock system to secure the lenses, representing a
dramatic evolution in traditional optical construction.

The hingeless frame system integrates retractable
cable temples into the design of the titanium
side cups. Two small hooks interlock with the side
cups and provide a pivoting point, which is unusual for
a frame of this style. Custom inverted nose pads
seamlessly continue the lines of the frame’s
silhouette, extending the considered design all the
way to its finishing touches.
