Divel Italia logo's evolution.

Why a new logo? For this reason we have decided to make a further restyling of the Divel logo. We have separated the two elements: pictogram and logotype. The pictogram, currently registered all over the world, has been perfected in the lines so as to make it legible at any size. The logotype changes the font, opting for a sans serif, more linear and contemporary. In the logo, Divel has been inserted in bold, to affirm the identity of the company, called by its customers in the common language, in the abbreviated version “Divel”. However, the word Italy remained in the logo, so as not to lose the patriotic characteristic, which allows us to proudly spread our products abroad.

We observe how the world changes and we move with it.

The color of sunglass lenses

When it comes time to pick a pair of sunglasses, often one of the factors taken into account is the color of the lenses.

The categories of sun lenses

The category of the lens depends on a value called Visible Light Transmission (VLT) or Tv (transmittance value). This is a measure of how much light the lens lets your eyes pass through and is expressed as a percentage.

When we talk about categories of sun lenses, we refer to the percentage % of light that reaches the eye when it passes through a lens.

Corrective lenses: characteristics and benefits

As the name implies, corrective lenses, also known as “prescription” lenses, are used in eyewear in order to correct defects in the vision of the wearer.

How do corrective lenses work?

Although digital imaging technology has, in many respects, surpassed the abilities of the human eye — such as in light sensitivity — corrective lenses are, in fact, based on how the human eye functions.

It’s often said that our eyes work a bit like a camera lens.

The functional coatings

Lens coatings serve to protect both the lenses and the person wearing them. By blocking certain types of light as they pass through the lens, we can enhance lenses in terms of look, vision, and overall quality.

Fossili: display cases

Over the last year, Divel Italia has taken on the green philosophy to an incredible degree. With the help of smart, dynamic experts, our studies of lens recycling and reuse have led to applications in packaging, interior design, and even exhibition furnishings!

Following research into lens waste conducted at the University of Palermo, designers Federica Ditta and Cristiano Pesca turned their attention to the various potential uses for this waste.
