theo has always had a passion for art. A love of art so big that four years ago, they took the step of opening a gallery of their own, right next to their Antwerp headquarters. Here, the work of some 10 artists is shown each year to a diverse audience. But the ‘old’ masters deserve to be put on a pedestal too. theo created the ‘Antwerp Painters’ collection as a highly original way of paying homage to 6 golden oldies with Antwerp roots!

Whether it was their shared love of art, of colour or of Antwerp... no question that it was only a matter of time before a Rubens, Jordaens and Van Dijck would show up in a theo collection. The ‘Antwerp Painters’ collection was born. Naturally, there had to be a model named after the great master Rubens. And he’s in good company. The other models are Jordaens, Verlat, Van Dijck, Pourbus and Teniers.

Form & technique

Acetate and metal are combined in a highly distinctive, typically theo way. The stainless steel core is given an acetate coating. The temples remain flexible thanks to the flex-system that theo developed in-house. The glasses have the look of acetate frames, but the comfort of metal!

This collection is now available at theo points-of-sale. Each model comes in 8 colour combinations.
