Urban lifestyle and sustainability – that‘s neubau eyewear

neubau eyewear is an independent lifestyle eyewear brand offering a wide selection of optical frames and sunglasses. All our frames are designed, developed and manufactured in Austria.

Inspired by urban culture

The brand name neubau pays trib­ute to inter­na­tion­al cre­at­ive hubs such as Vienna’s Neubau dis­trict, loc­ated in the pulsat­ing heart of the Aus­tri­an cap­it­al. It is a place where artists, cre­at­ive souls and up-and-com­ing tal­ents con­nect; a dis­trict com­par­able to oth­ers found around the globe from Cov­ent Garden to Brook­lyn, from Le Marais to El Born.

Lightweight and style conscious

Driv­en by an urb­an spir­it, neubau eye­wear unites innov­at­ive design with extens­ive pro­duc­tion know-how and exper­i­ence. As a res­ult, neubau offers light­weight, fash­ion­able frames while guar­an­tee­ing the highest qual­ity stand­ards and wear­ing comfort.

Sustainable by design

neubau eyewear’s ded­ic­a­tion to style and qual­ity goes hand in hand with set­ting high envir­on­ment­al stand­ards for everything we do. Our efforts to stay con­scious of both envir­on­ment­al needs and excel­lent design is con­veyed in the neubau motto SEE & DO GOOD.

The con­scious use of resources and region­al Aus­tri­an pro­duc­tion are at the core of our efforts. This not only con­cerns the mater­i­al of our frames, it includes aspects such as pack­aging, prin­ted and in-store mater­i­al. neubau eye­wear also sup­ports non-profit pro­jects revital­iz­ing nature in urb­an environments.

We strive to treat our envir­on­ment with the utmost con­sid­er­a­tion, know­ing that there are already many accom­plish­ments to look back on – but even more that lie ahead. It is our con­tinu­ous effort to improve and our ambi­tious goals that define us.

From caster oil to innovative polymers

neubau Lookbook mood

The heavy use of pet­ro­leum-based plastics around the world is tak­ing a huge toll on the envir­on­ment. That is why we have called upon Moth­er Nature to cre­ate plant-based altern­at­ive mater­i­als that can be used to pro­duce our frames: nat­ur­alPX and natural3D.


65% of our nat­ur­alPX is made up of oil extrac­ted from the castor beans. The remain­ing 35% is con­ven­tion­al poly­mer which is needed to rein­force the strength and elasti­city of the mater­i­al. nat­ur­alPX doesn’t just help us min­im­ize our car­bon foot­print, it also allows us to design and man­u­fac­ture high-per­form­ance eye­wear in a wide range of styl­ish col­ours and finishes.


neubau material natural3D

natural3D is a 100% bio-based poly­mer made from castor oil beans which we use in our 3D print­ing pro­cess. This mater­i­al is not only derived from a renew­able source, it also enables us to pro­duce the frames without cre­at­ing or cut­ting waste, so the whole pro­cess leaves an extremely small eco­lo­gic­al footprint. 

natural3D is free from plas­ti­cizers, but is flex­ible and impact res­ist­ant. This robust and dur­able mater­i­al guar­an­tees that the glasses keep their shape. Also, 3D prin­ted eye­wear is extremely light — 30% light­er than con­ven­tion­al acet­ate. The cut­ting-edge fin­ish­ing and seal­ing pro­cesses used dur­ing 3D print­ing pro­duces frames with a beau­ti­ful finely pored sur­face, so they look and feel great too.

Consistent ecology: our accessories

All our accessor­ies for your neubau eye­wear frames are man­u­fac­tured with the same view to util­ity and eco­logy. The neubau case for all nat­ur­alPX frames is man­u­fac­tured from a cel­lu­lose base and without any need for glue, which makes it eas­ily recyc­lable; the clean­ing cloth is made from recycled plastic bottles and is packed only in recyc­lable paper. Even the mar­ket­ing mater­i­als dis­trib­uted at the point of sale are pro­duced with selec­ted mater­i­als by sup­pli­ers who respect the environment.
