GABE Eyewear is an Austrian start-up dedicated to designing and producing high-quality frames made of wood and horn.

Four longtime friends sharing their love for exceptional products and unique style built their atelier in the premises of an old closed down factory in 2015.

 

Our collection is a selection of sixteen signature pieces
inspired by nature`s dynamic. The line of unique
metal-free glasses made of horn and wood offer an
array of accessories that underline every wearer`s
personality.

 

 


Time and time again. Because we know you.
And we know exactly how you handle your
oh so beloved glasses. It’s already clear.

Believe us, you’ll be so happy.
A little bit longer than with your last
“never had any such beautiful and so” glasses.


With the „Snap Joint“ hinge GABE Eyewear developed an unrivaled innovation in the industry. This horn hinge is a signature feature of all eyewear creations. Its distinctive black color elevates them to iconic frames that are recognizable from far. It allows to change different horn or wooden temples within seconds and thereby fits one`s individual style. 

 

WOOD YOU MIND?

Wood. If you want to bend it with force,
it’ll break. You can only coax it and you
have to work with it otherwise you won’t
become its master.

No piece is like another, each one is unique,
each one has its own character, each one wants
to be understood as it is. Wood only reveals itself
to a considerate, skilled  and diligent person.
Then it will follow you until it takes its shape.

HORNY!?

Touch it. Smooth. Warm. Soft?
No, it’s not soft, it only   seems to be.
Always cherished. Water buffalo horn.
Unique. Because it bends if you warm it
gently, because it takes a shape, which it
keeps, because it fulfils its function robustly
and durably. That’s unique.

That makes it the perfect material for handles
and joints. We love you, water buffalo horn.

We love details, can discuss them for a long time, till they’re just perfect. Until the moment when we have a new idea, something even better. Our joy won’t vanish, because there’s nothing more beautiful than thriving together."
"We could also have become a band, but we didn’t have the talent, that’s not something we can do just by being good looking, because we don’t even have that. But we didn’t want to be a band anyway, we wanted to create something new. Being brave, unconventional, innovative.
