Schema-One proposes a confident new vocabulary for design rooted in strength and restraint, made possible with advances in engineering.
The quest for mechanical sophistication and durability inspired designers to apply the precepts of systems engineering to Dita’s existing design process. The outcome: Schema-One, a relentlessly minimal optical frame guided by the notion that simplicity is the ultimate expression of elegance.
Each component is precision engineered to eliminate the use of screws, reducing mechanical friction and ensuring that no specialized tools are required in the assembly process.
The distinctive top bar — a visual signature that recurs throughout the collection—is forged from a single piece of titanium and acts as a chassis of sorts to anchor the frame’s lightweight acetate lens rim.
