The original carbon frame
Revolutionary designer eyewear made from carbon fiber reinforced with titanium. A lightweight frame but yet very strong. Blac is the world’s first adjustable carbon fiber frame, with the patent to prove it. Designed and hand made exclusively by our own production team in the Bellinger House in Risskov, Denmark.
Blac – the fabulous story
Begins with designer Claus Bellinger and his fascination of McLaren’s carbon-composite MP4-1 body, which rocked the Formula 1 World at Silverstone in 1981. The MP4-1 was the first full carbon Formula 1 body, designed as a molding, rather than the traditional series of flat aluminum panels mechanically fixed together. The reward for challenging conventional thinking was a gigantic leap in strength and sturdiness that would revolutionize racing car design. The characteristics of the carbon fiber and fiberglass composite are its unique woven surface, an unusual lightness combined with great strength.
