Count­less things can trig­ger a good feel­ing: The look of a loved one, a cool drop of water on the skin or a sen­tence that has been hanging unspoken for far too long.

In the end, the only thing that mat­ters is allow­ing this good feel­ing to come through and being open to the waves of change that it may stir up. The film La Pis­cine”, which inspired us to devel­op our new spe­cial col­lec­tion, is all about cel­eb­rat­ing these emo­tions, not with a big hur­ray and great fan­fare, but with conviction.

But a good feel­ing can also arise in a moment of clar­ity – as an assur­ance that we’re doing just the right thing.

Even just a single action or a small step can lead towards a bet­ter and green­er future. Here at neubau, we want to cre­ate this good feel­ing among our cus­tom­ers with each of our products, and for us that means com­bin­ing envir­on­ment­ally-friendly pro­duc­tion meth­ods and trend-set­ting design.

The path towards our green­er future begins in Vienna’s trendy dis­trict of Neubau, where numer­ous inde­pend­ent shops, gal­ler­ies, res­taur­ants and bars char­ac­ter­ize the col­or­ful, cre­at­ive hustle and bustle.

Those who come to Neubau want to help shape the future and leave their own mark – in a sus­tain­able way. Even if the res­id­ents of the dis­trict have dif­fer­ent life stor­ies, their vis­ion of the future is sim­il­ar. This is why, with our motto See & Do Good”, we always focus on sus­tain­able mater­i­als, pro­duc­tion in Aus­tria and innov­at­ive design. And there­fore, always on a good feeling.

When nature offers the perfect frame

Although its real name (the Lat­in Ricinus com­munis) is not so widely known, the castor oil plant quickly became fam­ous for its almost magic­al fea­tures. Nick­named the mir­acle tree, and not without reas­on, the almost myth­ic­al-look­ing plant was en- dowed with impress­ive super powers by Moth­er Nature.

The extremely res­ist­ant plant grows up to five metres in just three to four months, pro­du­cing seeds whose ver­sat­il­ity must even amaze a suc­cess­ful dec­ath­lete. This is why the oil of the castor oil plant, which is extrac­ted from its seeds, can be labeled as a first-class uni­ver­sal tal­ent. nat­ur­alPX, the mater­i­al from which all our poly­mer frames are made, con­sists of 65% castor oil and is there­fore a par­tic­u­larly envir­on­ment­ally-friendly poly­mer. Due to its par­tic­u­larly high flex­ib­il­ity, impress­ive res­ist­ance, great col­or intens­ity and remark­ably low weight, nat­ur­alPX quickly proved to be an excel­lent material.

How­ever, with our newly developed mater­i­al natural3D we man­aged to make our pro­duc­tion even more sustainable.

The seeds of the castor oil plant con­tin­ue to form the basis of the mater­i­al, but we have suc­ceeded in increas­ing the pro­por­tion of renew-able raw mater­i­als to 100%. With the devel­op­ment of natural3D, a com­pletely nat­ur­al mater­i­al can now also be used in 3D print­ers for the first time. This innov­at­ive new way of print­ing is a dra­mat­ic­ally resource- sav­ing pro­cess in which excess mater­i­al can eas­ily be reused.

When it comes to sus­tain­ab­il­ity, of course, we also think out­side the frame.

Our eye­wear pack­aging, clean­ing cloths, accessor­ies and prints are made from recycled or envir­on­ment­ally-friendly mater­i­als. In addi­tion, 100% green elec­tri­city flows through the lines of our headquar­ters and our pro­duc­tion facil­ity, and strict air and water fil­tra­tion enables us to work almost com­pletely emission-free.

A sustainable tribute to an endless summer

If the 60s taught us any­thing, it’s that revolu­tion­ary atti­tudes flour­ish across many dif­fer­ent fields. In art, Andy War­hol elev­ated a tin can to the realm of high cul­ture with his legendary Fact­ory, in music, sing­er Janis Joplin turned the industry on its head, and in fash­ion, the mini skirt pushed former dress codes to their ulti­mate lim­its. It was a time of lib­er­a­tion, when people freed them­selves from the norms that until then had gov­erned their lives and fol­lowed the urge to try new things. Some­how, every­one seemed to be on the hunt for a life without lim­its — for some that meant hanging out with like-minded paci­fists in Haight Ash­bury, for oth­ers it was rather about explor­ing the French Rivi­era, where the artsy-inclined became heav­ily engaged with the avant-garde.

It’s no won­der, then, that dir­ect­or Jacques Deray used the impress­ive scenery of the Côte d’Azur as the back­drop for La Pis­cine” – a movie that would become a paradigm of French cinema. 

Star­ring Romy Schneider, Alain Delon and Maurice Ron­et, the film’s char­ac­ters find them­selves on an unre­lent­ing quest for free­dom — a lib­er­a­tion guided by free-flow­ing emo­tions and instinct­ive sen­su­al­ity. In the stifling sum­mer heat, fol­low­ing hearts rather than their heads can be dan­ger­ous, but when emo­tions are about to boil over, the azure swim­ming pool acts as the trio’s salvation.

Inspired by the sen­su­al cool of Deray’s cult clas­sic, our brand-new spe­cial col­lec­tion Côte du Soleil is about the beauty that comes when cour­age and free­dom collide.

Our brand-new frames are named Alain, Romy and Maurice, allud­ing to the three act­ors that helped La Pis­cine” to acquire its legendary status, and there are unmis­tak­able par­al­lels in the frames’ forms too. Just as the pool’s edge embraces the glit­ter­ing water with­in, the frames of our three new mod­els stretch like a band around the lenses.

With the use of our 100% bio-based material natural3D, we also wanted to hark back to the the lesser known, rustic and natural side of the Côte d’Azur, which long before "La Piscine" was shot, was home to high-quality, down-to-earth design.
