Brand Overview


Two people with visionary power pursued their ideas and vision with complete focus and made them a reality.

For the first time in history, Anneliese and Arnold Schmied were making eye wear that was more than just a visual aid and their glasses became a sought-after accessory for improving both vision and one's appearance.

Avant-garde Italian Designer, Massimo losa Ghini, secured the Austrian State Award for Design for Silhouette with his exclusive sun wear collection in 1991. In 1994, Ghini played with the 'fascination of curves' in four other eyewear models.

Silhouette makes seeing an experience without boundaries. Silhouette’s rimless design is timeless, the color variations and nuances are multifaceted, and the materials used are of the highest quality. All Silhouette eyewear models are masterpieces that are lovingly made in Austria. Silhouette creates and produces rimless eyewear models with the power of innovation, a passion for detail which, for the most part – up to 80% – they create by hand.
