Leica Trinovid 8x40 "LIFE edition"
With the ‘LIFE edition’ of the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40, Leica Camera AG presents a unique, special edition from the Leica Trinovid range of binoculars. The special edition model has been created in collaboration with the Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, who lent the binoculars their unusual look. With its neon green leather trim and colour-matched engraving, the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition’ is a striking eye-catcher and a work of art in one. In a worldwide edition of only 250 examples, the uniqueness of this model makes it a highly desirable object for lovers of rarities and exclusive collector’s items.
The strictly limited Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition’ was created as an homage to Olafur Eliasson’s installation ‘Life’, which was shown at the Fondation Beyeler (Switzerland) in 2021.
In addition to the neon green leather trim, a further eye-catching feature of the binoculars of the special edition is their engravings filled out in green. Each example also features the special engraving ‘LIFE’ and a unique serial number indicating that it is one example from a limited edition (1/250). The Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition’ will be supplied in green packaging in binocularstyle and emblazoned with the logotype ‘Life’. The scope of delivery includes a certificate of authenticity and a folding card with a personally signed quote from Olafur Eliasson.
In every other respect, the technical specifications of the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition’ are identical to those of the serial production model. Presented in 2019 as an homage to the iconic binoculars of the 1960s, the relaunched Leica Trinovid in classic design is a timeless accessory – stylish, slim and elegant – and the perfect companion for observation in countless situations. Their precise, high-performance premium optics with an exceptional field of view assure users an impressive overview and, thanks to their intuitive handling concept, hour after hour of fatigue-free observation. The latest glass types and coating guarantee brilliant, true-to-life colours and an extremely bright, high-contrast viewing image from edge to edge. Protected by an ultra-light aluminium body and state-of-the-art materials, Leica Trinovid binoculars are robust, waterproofed against spray and rain and ready to face every challenge in even the harshest conditions.
