Neubau Eyewear, which is owned by the Austrian company Silhouette International, will operate as an independent company from Jan. 1.

It will become a subsidiary with its own sales and marketing channels but production will still be guaranteed by Silhouette’s two production sites in Austria.

Neubau, which focuses on stylish and sustainable design, has been part of Silhouette’s portfolio since the brand’s creation in 2016. Silhouette’s other two house brands are a namesake label and the sports glasses, evil eye.
