A vision for eyewear that celebrates the bold innovations of the last century and embraces cutting-edge technological advancements. 8000 has infinite meanings, some of them yet to be explored. Its namesake references the 14 highest peaks in the world, with an altitude greater than 8,000 meters above sea level, also known as the eight-thousands or ‘gli ottomila’. Inspiration is drawn from the world of technology, equipment’s, and mechanics where function is the ultimate form of beauty. The uniqueness of the product lies in its simplicity while honoring an expression of craftsmanship that prefers durability over the ephemeral. The eyewear is crafted entirely by hand in Italy, with an obsessive attention to detail, quality, and form. The ultra-flat glass lens with anti-reflex treatment, an updated edition of those of the climbers in the 1930’s, produces the highest quality UV filter for your eyes.
