Made in Australia, France and Japan, our frames carry a strong European design heritage, with an emphasis on skilled craftsmanship. Without the knowledge and passion of the artisans creating Niloca eyewear, many of the intricate designs wouldn't have seen the light of day.
NILOCA was founded by Colin Redmond, an international award-winning industrial designer with a fierce passion for creating pieces that refuse to conform and cannot be pigeon-holed. Colin designed for Audi in the heady days of the late 1990s, culminating in a Red Dot award received as part of the iconic TT-model design team.
Colin returned to Australia in the early 2000ʼs to spearhead a leading R&D company before turning his attention towards high design eyewear in 2007.
After 3 years of research, designing and refining ideas, Niloca was officially released in 2011 with a commitment to production within Australia. Niloca aims to make long lasting eyewear out lives the passing whims of fashion.
