The man behind Optica La Mar
To tell the story of Georg Klaus Seidel, who was born on October 7, 1960, we have to travel back in time. The anecdotes of his tumultuous life, which are just as colourful and unique as he is, could easily fill a book. Instead, what follows is a short version of his life and what brought him to the island of Ibiza.
As a toddler, Georg, whose father Georg Werner Seidel was an optician with a large chain of shops, spent a few years at the royal court of Thailand. He later went to school in Waiblingen, Germany, and although he hadn’t initially planned to follow in his father’s footsteps, he trained as an optician. He got joy and satisfaction from helping people to see again.
