Artchitecture, the Catuma collection that celebrates the bond between art, architecture and nature is enriched with new models, small works of craftsmanship and engineering excellence to collect as design objects. The new series of glasses will be presented at Silmo 2017.
In preview, Catuma reveals "Levante", a frame of strong character, strong as steel front, but graceful, like the wind from which borrows the name.
A frame in which Zeiss lenses treated with blue glare, are embedded in a metal structure reminiscent of the style loved by Eileen Gray, in which the steel towers. A robust and stable material, but at the same time extremely malleable, able to model creating textural virtuosity. The unusual eyelashes of this model is composed of an upper part protruding steel, in which we find the game of full and empty. In a mirror, the boss is also reflected internally, resulting in a model with blinders that brings to mind the aviator, so linear when viewed from the front, but so complex if admired from the side.
The spirals of steel that enrich Levante frame, are embellished with treated cork inserts with metallic glazes or decorated with elegant swirls in lamé. As well as the articulation of the structures in architecture makes sure that they appear graceful, so the mixing of small items, including full and empty spaces of the steel front and between cork decorations, creates dynamism in this incredible elegance Catuma model.
The use of cork, fabric and steel, makes the "Sun" model, available in five colors, is completely environmentally friendly.
Nature affects man's works, in a meeting between naturalness and functionality.
The architecture is not imposed, but let the atmospheric phenomena, such as wind, levighino its forms and that nature is manifested. This is the mood Catuma: interact with the individual's personality, dressing, enriching, enhancing the uniqueness but not covering it.
