Patented at the end of the 1930s, the Meflecto is the world’s first flexible stem system designed for maximum comfort by eliminating pressure on the head from the arms of glasses. The Meflecto system allows the glasses to adapt to the unique shape of any face and still today represents a technologically unsurpassed solution.
In terms of production, the Meflecto system involves inserting nylon or metal cylinders into an acetate stem, intersecting them with a flexible core of harmonic steel. The process requires over 10 working steps compared to that of a normal frame. Simply put, this system allows the stem to bend comfortably for the wearer.
