The brand begins with the Porsche Design Studio, now known as Studio F. A. Porsche.

The studio was established in Stuttgart in 1972 by
Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the grandson of the Porsche founder Ferdinand Porsche and designer of the Porsche 911.

 

 
The Porsche 911 sets the precedent for Porsche Design sticking closely to Ferdinand' principle;
"If you analyze the function of an object its form often becomes obvious’. This design principle has been taken forward into all Porsche Design’s products..
 
 
Ferdinand Porsche and The Design Studio relocated to Zell am See in the Austrian Alps in 1974 where Porsche had been producing beautiful design since the 1950s.These accessories ranged from luggage to clothing all under the "Porsche Boutique" name. It was in 1978 that the brand had its first breakthrough in eyewear design with the P'8478.
 

Today all genuine Porsche Design eyewear is manufactured by Rodenstock in Japan using only the very finest materials and manufacturing processes.

Together, Porsche Design and Rodenstock focus on using the highest quality titanium for their eyewear frames constantly
striving to achieve the epitome of outstanding stability, lightness and performance.
