Portrait of Patricia Urquiola

Patricia Urquiola

Renowned Milan-based designer Patricia Urquiola's concept HILO, meaning 'thread', envisions frame designs that flow together with a single line. Layers of nuanced shades are combined to suit your face, naturally and easily. For Patricia, it was crucial that we used environmentally-aware bio materials.

HILO Frame Concept

"Hilo"

Each frame is constructed from Arkema's Rilsan® Clear G850 Rnew®, a material that contains castor oil which is made from castor beans, an inedible crop that is sustainable and environmentally friendly, with lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions. The result is beautiful, durable, and sturdy eyewear produced in rich colors that are synonymous with Patricia's architectural and interior design work. Accompanying each frame is a case designed by Patricia that is constructed of 60% recycled paper with a lining made from 100% recycled polyester, in addition to a cloth made of 60% recycled fiber.
