The 5033 isn’t an easy one to master, as it transgresses most of the ergonomic rules with its overflowing 80s forms. Originally produced as prescription glasses by Netoptic somewhere in the mid-80s, it's the kind of pair that takes time to reveal its true potential. They're the kind of frames we initially bought just to keep safe, until the day we offered them a fresh look and another idea started to emerge. With a home matifying process and a pair of grey-tinted lenses, the whole frame lost some of its extravagance for the benefit of its balance. Other colors are also available.
