The WHITE HEAT metal collection is a puristic design concept in which the combination of acetate and metal plays a special role.
This line marks the first endeavor in producing metal frames.Since their beginning, Andy Wolf has always been about handcrafted frames. In a world of mass production they see this as a way to make a statement. The attention to detail in every single frame, along with the human touch, results in very personal and distinct glasses. That is how they view life too. Humans enter this world as a blank slate and through choices, people, actions and dreams our character is shaped. Like their metal frames, lives are shaped by humanity.All of the frames share their name with sculptors who are famous for their work with metal. When you heat metal in order to forge it, it glows white to our eyes at its highest temperature. That’s also the reason why it’s used to describe a person in their most passionate emotional state. To Andy Wolf, white heat is the condition in which character is forged.Glasses help you see and help others see who you are. They are an expression of character, of the person you’ve become after you’ve been forged in the white heat of life.
