Modo has obtained intellectual property protection on its Paper Thin collection from the OHIM (Office for Harmonization in the International Market). The certification covers Modo’s eyewear frames and sunglasses utilizing beta titanium frames combined with TR90 eyewear rings and a double-block closing system.
“Our Paper Thin collection has been one of the most successful products ever launched by Modo and we are extremely pleased to have obtained proper IP protection” says Alessandro Lanaro, Modo’s CEO. “We intend to vigorously defend such IP so that we can continue expanding our innovation with considerable investments to create brand recognition and consumer awareness”.
Each frame in the Modo Paper Thin collection weighs only 6.8 grams, using beta-titanium 153 at 0.6 of thickness and features extreme flexibility. The TR90 eye wire rings are 2.1 mm thick elastic polyamide, adding a pop of colour that seamlessly blend lightness and proportion.
