Each of the 333 unique pieces pays tribute to the work of the engineer of Hungarian descent, Péter Károly Goldmark, who made history with his invention.
Tipton Eyeworks presented a limited edition spectacle frame called GOLDMARK in their Budapest showroom in June, of which a total of 333 pieces were produced. Guest stars of the event, besides the Grammy Award winner DJ Vadim, were MC Wolfie, DJ Bodoo, and Ágoston Bartha gramophone DJ.
The engineer of Hungarian descent, Péter Károly Goldmark, moved to the United States at the outbreak of World War II. For decades he worked for Columbia Broadcasting System, thanks to which work the microgroove record exists in its current form. His invention made it possible for publishers to deliver music on unbreakable vinyl media that provides quality sound, even across continents.
Tipton Eyeworks has been working with recycled materials from the very beginning of its operation. The Hungarian brand, popular even among international stars, utilizes more than three tons of vinyl records per year.
The limited-edition, numbered GOLDMARK glass frames are assembled by hand in the brand’s Budapest workshop. Each piece comes in a gift box made from recycled records, with a 33 1/3 RPM mark and certificate of authenticity.
