When it comes to packing for a summer vacation, lightness should always be favoured. Lindberg’s titanium frames – a signature of the Danish brand, which is known for its meticulous approach to eyewear – make for a particularly featherweight addition to your carry-on, with several of their frames tipping the scales at under two grams.

Taken from Lindberg’s ‘Sun Titanium’ collection, this gently faceted riff on the aviator will prove the perfect travel companion: impossibly lightweight, they feature the screwless hinge which Paul-Jørn Lindberg (who founded the brand with son Henrik Lindberg) developed with Copenhagen-based architects Dissing + Weitling in the mid-1980s to solve the issue of screws having to be continually tightened and maintained. Each pair is completed with the finest quality UV-protective lenses (available in a variety of hues) and is crafted by Lindberg’s artisans in Denmark. The collection also includes plays on other classic eyewear styles – from Wayfarer to cat’s eye.

It is the kind of utilitarian Danish design which remains a cornerstone of Lindberg today. And, like much of the country’s design output – from furniture to textiles – functionality meets a sleek, timeless aesthetic, making for sunglasses which will accompany you on your travels again and again.
