Blac Eyewear : One of Seven
POSTED ON 03.6.2016
ONE OF SEVEN. Blac Eyewear is, together with super brands like: McLaren, Aston Martin, Rolex, Storck & Ress winery, part of Markus Storck’s exciting design project called ONE OF SEVEN.
This exclusive project sees Storck Bicycle founder Markus Storck influencing the design of a number of diverse and exciting projects. The products range from cars, eyewear, watches and even wine. Each item designed with Markus as part of ONE of SEVEN is strictly limited to a production of only Seven units. Never before has someone from the world of cycling been so heavily involved in the design, specification and customization of such exclusive products.
ONE OF SEVEN includes:
– Blac Carbon fiber frames
– McLaren 650 S MSO
– Aston Martin Vanquish Q
– Blaken Rolex
– Storck Aernario Platinium Disc
– Ress winery
The launch night revealed the first, and most dramatic, item in the range. The ONE of SEVEN McLaren 650s. This supercar collaboration was designed with McLaren Special Operations (MSO), Markus Storck and Rainer Dörr, owner of the Dörr Motorsport Group. Storck’s carbon fiber influences are immediately clear, the hood, seats, interior mirror arms and wheel arches all feature Matt black carbon weave. Aesthetically appealing but also reducing the overall weight by 40kg vs a standard 650s. The paint used took 3 months to perfect the color. Accentuating the curves of the 650s with a bronze look during the daytime, that changes to a darker brown in the evening. Translated into English the color means “covered with bronze”. A special color, creating it pushed McLaren Special Operations colorist Darren Townsend to his limits.
The ONE of SEVEN project also includes a ONE of SEVEN Aernario Disc, customized with Dura ace di2, Storck carbon power arm cranks and painted in the same bronzing finish as the McLaren 650s. Of course, strictly limited to Seven units worldwide.
The McLaren ONE OF SEVEN was definitely the center of attention. The presentation also featured designer carbon fiber eyewear by BLAC, Denmark, a ONE OF SEVEN bike with disc brakes, designed by Markus Storck, a Rolex watch in matt black created in collaboration with BLAKEN as well as wine in an exclusive packaging from the Balthasar Ress winery in Hattenheim im Rheingau, Germany.
