About Xocchiali

The founders of the Xocchiali concept and products are 4 people with extensive experience from the home electronics industry applied to products for ordinary people. They have worked in leading positions in large international groups such as Ericsson, Sony Mobile Communications and Nokia, but have also tried the challenges of starting new companies where traditional products such as watches, electrical items for the house etc. have been enhanced with the latest technology. The four founders are:

Pål Borge – Project management & operations

Sarandis Kalogeropulos – Business development & Sales

Paul Johansson – R&D & Hardware development

Dr. Günter Alce – Technology & Software development 

Günter is also a university lecturer in virtual and augmented reality technology at Lund University.

The idea behind the Xocchiali concept is to unite the real world with the digital world, but based on relevant use cases that provide the user with valuable information in a simple way. All this must be carried out without compromising on the design of the eyewear as this is a fashion statement for many. This means that the technology will only be implemented into the eyewear when it is mature from a size and performance perspective. The eyewear will be connected to the mobile and cloud to maximize the use of information that is out there. We will offer complete eyewear to the end consumer under the Xocchiali brand but also directly to the eyewear industry to help established brands provide smart eyewear.

Xocchiali is established in southern Sweden in the city of Malmö. We work with the best suppliers in the eyewear and electronics industry around the world to achieve the Xocchiali concept.

For eyewear buyers

Xocchiali will provide drawings of how the cavity in the eyewear must look for the electronics to fit. We also provide assembly instructions and tests to be performed. If you don’t want to do the assembly yourself, Xocchiali can provide that assembly service by the Xocchiali factory and then send the acetate parts to your factory for assembly with the rest of the eyewear. Xocchiali’s factory provides full assembly, polishing and testing of the parts.

Customized eyewear basically works in the same way as Xocchiali eyewear. The application has been adapted to the customer’s wishes and there may be customer-specific features that have been implemented. All information can be found in the integrated user manual in the mobile application.
