Silhouette Frames

Silhouette is an Austrian brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses, founded in 1964. Its headquarters and main production site are located in Linz, Austria.

The founders positioned their first creations as fashion accessories — instead of technical visual aids — and soon gained ground in Western Europe. They chose a French name for their company as fashion then was still heavily dominated by French designers. The first product had a narrow square shape with dark frames, unusual for its time. In the early 1970s, the brand became popular due to actress Sylvia Kristel.

Since 2002, NASA has used the frame of the designer model Titan Minimal Art, combined with dark lenses developed jointly by the company and NASA’S optometrist Keith Manuel.
