Clean Danish design is the basis of our products but we always add a twist of something surprising – something unexpected. We aim to balance classic and clean with bold and bright to continuously keep classic styles updated. The most important thing is always to create eyewear that dresses the face. The frame and the face must interact to obtain a beautiful and harmonic look. We never strive for creating a design object that demands all the attention but rather a piece of eyewear that completes and enhances the lines of the face

Like other Danish eyewear designers ProDesign works a lot with powerful effects and is fascinated by the way the right detail can completely change the look of a frame. To pick a certain effect, appoint it your characteristic feature and make it as powerful as possible without overdoing it. This can be a challenge when you also want to preserve the clean and simple lines of Danish Design. This is however what it is all about – challenging our creativity to create a perfect frame every time.

La LOOP was invented in 1999 - out of necessity. How many times can one look for ones glasses? And wearing those granny leashes—not an option. Why can’t something be functional and stylish and well made? That was the question and La LOOP is the answer. The magical hinges on either side of the loop enable the glasses to stay in place when in the loop.
Museum stores and specialty boutiques around the world like Le Bon Marche in Paris, Isetan in Tokyo, Selfridges and Harrods in London and Optical Shops of Aspen in America have recognized La LOOP as an invention - a chic and  practical one.
La LOOPs have ended up on some of today’s biggest stars: Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, and Demi Moore.
