The dialogue between art and architecture, is a focal point of debate and dialogue. The one influences the other inseparably, so that often several projects are like works of art, while some pictures show geometric pattern worthy of more thorough project plan. This continuous blend of design, spaces, functions, history, identity, inspiration, colors, inspired the new collection CatumaCalled artchitecture.
Already announced by the capsule collection inspired by the Irish architect genius Eileen Gray, The new collection of the brand has some peculiarities that bring to mind the omnipresent themes in the work of the architect, but by adapting designs, shapes and materials to a spectacular collection of eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Eileen Gray in fact loved the steel adopted for tubular in his plans, that gave birth to modern luxury interiors, where every detail and piece of furniture, followed a precise description logic of the surroundings, being powered by Gray same.
Minimalism, strong materials, geometric shapes but harmonious: each of these elements has been borrowed from Catuma designers to be reinvented, translated and become the protagonist of a collection of sunglasses and eyeglasses in which the brand comes back to an emphasis on its origins, Puglia, and specifically, Andria.
Artchitecture fact has a number of models from the striking visual impact, ensured by a steel front, which expands the voluptuous eyelashes in geometric designs, which take over the square plant Catuma, Andria main square. Inserts in warm rich woods, burls, ebony, teak, walnut and oak give all models a wraparound look and warm, and bring to mind one of the main elements of the famous villa E-1027 Eileen Gray: the imposing nautical map that stands in one of the rooms that Le Corbusier "smeared" with one of his murals.
The map, the symbol of love for the sea, for boating, for the wood, and showing 'The Invitation au Voyage' title of a poem of 'Flowers of Evil' by Baudelaire, has given the name to each of the specimens the collection of artchitecture glasses, called as the cardinal points.
With this collection, Catuma returns love for craftsmanship, for the territory, but without neglecting the continuous innovation and the unusual use of materials, declined in glasses aim and gaze as intense works of art.
