United in craftsmanship and vision

  • • Silvio and Fabio create handmade bespoke glasses
  • • Their products are made exclusively in their workshop
  • • Eco materials and processes are a priority

Nardi Lunetier is the story of two brothers, two personalities, two different backgrounds united by the same passion: eyewear. A fascination that brought Silvio and Fabio Leonardi together in a project merging meticulousness, devotion and enthusiasm. In their Lausanne workshop, which opened in 2021, the Leonardi brothers create timeless and avant-garde designs. They like to give each customer a unique experience, allowing them to discover the different materials and witness the stages of production. “In establishing this eyewear making concept in Switzerland, we want to offer a more ethical and ecological approach, limiting overproduction and controlling the origin and processing of our raw materials. Each pair of glasses is made on demand from buffalo horn or cellulose acetate from organic cotton fibres.”

Blue round spectacles

This unique creation was born as part of a custom project. The blue/grey colour is inspired by the natural elements, with a reflection and transparency that gives depth and a feeling of movement. These spectacles are made from Italian organic acetate, which is produced from renewable sources such as certain varieties of trees and cotton linters.
