Leica Binoculars as a Work of Art

Leica Camera AG presents the ‘LIFE edition’ – a special limited edition of the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40

ALLENDALE, N.J., May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — With the ‘LIFE edition’ of the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40, Leica Camera 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 contributed to the aesthetic of the binoculars. With its neon green leather trim and color-matched engraving, the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition’ is both striking and a work of art. This edition is limited to 250 pieces worldwide contributing to its status as a highly desirable collectible.

The 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. ‘Life’ presented a model of ‘natural cultural’ landscape that explored how nature and culture are inseparable; how humans are entangled with the elements, structures, and systems in our environment. The concept of evercoming borders and broadening horizons is also symbolized by the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition’, where the binoculars establish a connection between the observer and the observed, inspiring a change in our perception of how we encounter the world around us.

To complement the neon green leather trim, the binoculars feature green engravings and a unique serial number which indicates its limited edition (1/250). The edition comes with custom packaging complete with a certificate of authenticity and a folding card which includes a personally signed quote from Olafur Eliasson.

The technical specifications of the Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition‘ are identical to those of the serial production model. The Leica Trinovid is a timeless accessory – stylish, slim and elegant – and the perfect companion for observation in any situation. The latest glass types and coating guarantee brilliant, true-to-life colors and an extremely bright, high-contrast viewing image from edge to edge. Protected by an ultra-light aluminum body and state-of-the-art materials, Leica Trinovid binoculars are waterproofed against spray and rain and ready to face every challenge in even the harshest conditions.

The Leica Trinovid 8 x 40 ‘LIFE edition is available for sale exclusively at Leica Stores and online at www.leicacamerausa.com.
