Molecube

Derapage Molecube - International Patent

DERAPAGE Molecube brings to the eyewear world a first-ever hinge system, patented, and all Made in Italy: as simple in its conception as it is technological in the making.

DERAPAGE MoleCube means:
- limiting the number of components to cut down the production stages and make frame manufacture eco-sustainable;
- just one square-headed screw, a minute cube/nut set flush into the temple – supporting the whole construction with no need for adjusting and no risk of unscrewing;
- using thin blades of chemically-cut or laser-cut steel to give the traditional DERAPAGE streamline effect;
- a flexi temple making for ultra comfort without use of springs, plus a hinge-stop that clicks open and clicks shut;
- an understated linear look that makes cool design sense.

DERAPAGE in a short video

To design a new pair of glasses takes time, peace and quiet, concentration, manual dexterity to go through each step of planning, prototyping and manufacture. In a short video this in is how we go from an idea… to a pair of glasses.

Riveting

This mechanical fastening system works by manually pressing home small studs called rivets. In the Derapage Tornado the frame is mounted without any welding and held together by steel micro-rivets.

Spectacle maintenance

Derapage glasses are sturdy and designed for everyday wear. A few user tips will lengthen your frame life, nonetheless.

Glasses should always be taken off with both hands, forwards, without forcing either of the temple spars.

They should be cleaned regularly, either dry or with neutral (not fatty) soap and water.

When not being worn, glasses should rest on a flat surface with the temples folded and the lenses upwards. It is always preferable to put them away in a case so as to protect the lenses from dust and shocks.

Product traceability

Made in Italy

All Derapage products are conceived, designed, PRODUCED, finished and checked in Italy.

The style centre that makes the Derapage collections is in Turin. Frame manufacture takes place from Milan to Venice. Finishing and assembly operations are conducted in the province of Treviso. Derapage frames may travel about Italy in search of some special finish.

The final quality control takes place exclusively at the Turin headquarters. 

Original genuine made-in-Italy is a trump card not just of the product but of the service back-up for Derapage: the image, press release and website are managed from Turin; Torinese, likewise, are the basic idea, and the marketing materials (display cards and cases). Gelbox spectacle cases are exclusively manufactured to a Derapage style centre concept and project in the province of Padua. 

In being so near one another, the company production units have greater elasticity, speed and quality control potential. In times of globalisation it is a point of pride that we turn out an extremely hi-tech 100% Italian product at virtually 0 kilometres.

Adjustment

Two adjustment operations need doing before your glasses can be donned in comfort. The first is a standard phase of production, the second depends on your optician.

You may not know, but towards the end of manufacturing glasses are registered, i.e. “manipulated” by bending and flexing the front and temples to fit the face.

The golden rules of adjustment are: the front and the temple tips must touch the plane. Temples must be set so that there is a 10cm approx. gap between the tips. The front must have a specific incline to the temples – about 8° - which is known as the pantoscopic angle. These dimensions, distances and angles are based on study of the average head size of men and women.

The second and perhaps more important adjustment is performed on your face by your optician before you sashay out of the shop with glasses flaunted. The optician will adjust the temple angle, height and length so that there is a perfect fit: no slipping, no pinching above the ears.
