If you’re looking for a pair of glasses that perfectly blend classic design with contemporary aesthetics, Lunor glasses should be on your radar. This innovative eyewear brand has been creating timeless pieces for over 25 years, and they continue to impress with their unique and stylish designs. Whether you prefer a more traditional look or something more modern and dynamic, Lunor has a pair of glasses for every taste. With their commitment to quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, it’s no wonder why Lunor glasses are a favorite among discerning fashion enthusiasts and eyewear aficionados alike. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what makes Lunor glasses so special and why they should be on your must-have list for stylish and practical eyewear.
The history of eyewear: from classic to contemporary
Eyewear has come a long way since the first pair of glasses were invented in Italy in the 13th century. Initially, glasses were seen as a sign of weakness and were only used by scholars and the elderly. It wasn’t until the 18th century that glasses became an essential accessory in fashion. Since then, glasses have evolved to become an integral part of our daily lives, with millions of people wearing them for vision correction and fashion purposes.
In recent years, eyewear has seen a resurgence in popularity, with classic and contemporary designs becoming more prevalent with consumers becoming less and less conservative. Eyewear is becoming one of the most worn accessories and often statement glasses can be the centre piece of an outfit.
Lunor however does things differently, they don’t follow trends but instead design classic, timeless yet equally modern frames that can be part of your eyewear collection for years to come without looking dated.
The History of Lunor Glasses:
Lunor’s journey began with a vision to revive the elegance and sophistication of classic eyewear. Inspired by vintage frames from the 18th and 19th centuries, Gernot Lindner embarked on a quest to reintroduce these timeless designs to the modern world. In 1991 Gernot’s vision came to life and Lunor was born, combining historical influences with modern technology, Lunor brought back the essence of iconic eyewear while infusing it with a fresh perspective. Lunor quickly earned and has maintained a reputation as a leading purveyor of exquisite eyeglasses, blending traditional artisanal techniques with contemporary innovation.
Lunor’s A6 glasses collection
Lunor’s contemporary A6 collection is a testament to the brand’s commitment to quality craftsmanship and timeless design. The frames are made of high-quality materials such as acetate and titanium, and the attention to detail is evident in every pair. The classic collection includes iconic shapes such as round, square, and rectangular frames that are perfect for any face shape.
One of the standout pieces in the collection is the Lunor A6 246, a round frame made of high-quality acetate that exudes sophistication and elegance. The Lunor A6 246 is available in a variety of colors, including tortoise, black, and clear, making it a versatile choice for any outfit.
A brand new frame to the Lunor collection in 2023 and quickly becoming another popular frame in the collection is the Lunor A6 258, a rectangular frame with a modern twist.
Lunor’s unique designs and materials
At the heart of Lunor’s success lies its unwavering commitment to craftsmanship. Every pair of Lunor glasses is meticulously crafted using a mix of modern and traditional methods by skilled artisans in their own factory in the Black Forset, Germany. This control over manufacturing ensures the utmost precision and attention to detail. From the initial design sketches to the final assembly, each step in the production process reflects Lunor’s dedication to creating eyewear that transcends trends and becomes a cherished piece of art and something that you can wear and enjoy for many years.
Lunor’s craftsmen meticulously select premium materials such as cotton bases acetate, titanium, and buffalo horn for their frames. These materials not only ensure durability but also lend a distinct character to each pair of Lunor glasses. The frames are painstakingly polished and finished to achieve a flawless surface, while the hinges are engineered to provide optimal functionality and long-lasting performance.
The horn frames are from naturally sourced buffalo horn and the material offers a one-of-a-kind finish as well as being extremely lightweight.
Why Lunor glasses stand out in the eyewear industry
Lunor glasses stand out in the eyewear industry due to their commitment to quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and ageless designs.

In addition to their unique designs, Lunor glasses are made of high-quality materials that are both durable and long-lasting.

Lunor glasses are designed to cater to different face shapes, with frames that are specifically tailored to complement each face shape. Whether you have a round, square, oval, or heart-shaped face, Lunor has a pair of glasses that will flatter your features.
For those with a round face, the Lunor A6 258 is a great choice, as the soft rectangular shape of the frame will help balance out the features of the face. Those with a square face can opt for the Lunor A6 249 or A6 246, which features a rectangular shape that will help soften the angular features of the face.

Our favourite Lunor glasses
This oversized 80’s inspired frame is a firm favourite with the team here at Ace Eyewear, in Black Havana, Vintage Blue, and Vintage Grey Matte. This unisex model features a slim acetate construction, we recommend this frame for almost all face shapes, and fits medium to large.
The Lunor A5 226 is another example of a well-rounded, lightweight model from the Lunor A5 Collection which has a 20-year history of producing exceptional style and quietly alluding to the wearer’s personality. We recommend the A5 226 to wearers with a petite face and features.
Elegant, easy to wear, and subtle details make the Lunor A5 234 an excellent choice for both ladies and gents. We recommend the Dark Havana Matte for the classic, smart gentleman, and Black Havana a unique mottle for ladies.
Lunor Glasses – A6 249
The Lunor A6 249 has many of the features of the A5 226 in terms of shape, however, this model is much larger and is manufactured using thicker acetate material meaning we find this frame more suitable for gents with a wider, square, diamond, or oval face shape.
Easily one of our most popular frames the Lunor A6 246 features thick paddle temples, a feature of the A6 collection, and is available in a wide range of colours to suit all hair colours and skin tones including Light Havana, Blue Crystal, and the brand-new Green Matte inspired by the Black Forest.
A brand new model launched in 2023 the Lunor A6 258, is a wide rectangular gents frame which has become a new favourite thanks to its softer brow line when compared to the A6 250 or 256.
