Hal Tortoise - Portrait Eyewear. A tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey, also inspired in Klarck’s namesake book. Belonging to the Art-Fakt collection, inspired in a post-industrial future, these frames take the name of the intriguing sci-fi character, Hal 9000, an artificially intelligent computer able to challenge human control for its own survival. Like all our products, these sunglasses are entirely handmade in Italy by genuine artisans who combine traditional craftsmanship with a high- technology manufacturer, pursuing the highest quality standards.

Portrait Eyewear was born from the genuine desire of two half-Venezuelan/Spanish siblings of preserving the traditional quality of Italian handcrafting, channeling such a precious resource through contemporary-eyewear design research and following the principles of a sustainable and socially responsible business. "Our product is entirely handmade in Italy by genuine artisans who combine traditional craftsmanship with a high-technology manufacturer, pursuing the highest quality standards. The production process adheres to environmentally-friendly and sustainable practices. All of our suppliers have an energy-efficient philosophy and guarantee a slave-free workplace." Opticals and sunglasses are the results of deep design research and experimentation, strongly influenced by art-history movements and dedicated to its most iconic figures. Coherently with the project’s art soul, the communication is based on the promotion of emerging artists in fair cooperation that co-endorses both players, the brand and its fascinating testimonials.
