HENAU: A NOSE FOR CRAFTMANSHIP AND IMAGINATION
Eyewear meets art: the perfect way to describe Henau’s vision. Our 100% Belgian glasses blend optical functionality with avant-garde design and that typical craftsmanship character. Recognisable, because we stick to our ways. A trendy look that oozes timelessness.
These days, glasses have become a true staple object of any fashionista, expressing and emphasizing its wearer’s personality and character. A logical evolution: since glasses are the first thing people notice when they meet someone, why not make most of this opportunity to make an impression? That is why designer Marc Delagrange, optics and modern art aficionado, showcases glasses as haute couture: objets d’art without affecting functionality and comfort.
Mass production in other words is a no go: HENAU swears by unique, hand drawn designs, profiling itself as a true glasses couturier. Designer Marc Delagrange doesn’t shy away from unconventional views nor technological innovation. Meanwhile, HENAU also remains a glasses specialist with a deep respect for tradition: the science of optics has been around for centuries and has even been traced back to transcripts by medieval monks. HENAU seeks to not only fully honour this craftsmanship, but also to add to this portfolio, to enrich it with its own avant-garde designs, full of character. This vision and approach is paying off: today Henau’s glasses are being sold in 30 countries, at over 750 opticians.
But however international our allure might be, Henau’s home base will always be Belgium, since grassroots craftsmanship, with our own story, is one of our core beliefs. We handed over the assembly to the expertise of specialists in France and Japan, since that simply is where the best talents are. In other words: we opt for knowhow without borders to guarantee top quality.
HENAU will do anything for a pair of glasses that perfectly matches your face, personal preferences and character, in their stride to ‘spread spectacles’ for everyone.
