Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 5, 2010
Optical Exchange, the exclusive North American supplier of Markus T (http://www.markus-t.com) eyewear, proudly announces the selection of TITAN as the winner of a GOOD DESIGN AWARD. This award, which is conferred annually by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design together with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, celebrates the visual and technical elegance of TITAN: the frame incorporates precise, lasered titanium sheet material for light yet robust construction, while a flexible nylon thread passes invisibly over the nose bridge for perfect simplicity and convenience. TITAN is a showcase of style and functional brilliance, employing a hinge system without any screws that allows for a seamless transition between the middle part of the frame and the temples. Along with insoluble PVD coating and a high quality surface finish, TITAN is a symbol of design purity and ingenious use of exceptional materials.
"GOOD DESIGN is the ultimate award of its kind, a seal of approval for international excellence among a group of the world's most distinguished companies. This award for TITAN is also a deserved tribute for Markus Temming, an acclaimed designer noted for his artistic interpretation and distinctive embrace of natural materials, an approach that defines the success of Markus T as a brand applauded for its commercial and critical success across Europe. This recognition for TITAN further highlights the frame's advantages, which include maximum comfort and resistance to elements and acids that can damage lesser products. It is a privilege to distribute this award-winning frame throughout North America," says David Sakhrani, President and CEO of Optical Exchange.
