Hi-tech materials combined with mineral beauty: Catuma introduces the collection in carbon fiber and stone, endless innovation.
Want to experiment, go further, mixing styles and materials, in search of perfection. Catuma's mission, since its inception, has been to create apparently boundless collections, pursuing the beauty and purity of design, but eco-sustainable.
The relentless research has led Catuma to launch a collection made of carbon fiber and steel, combined with stone and wood veneers. Almost oxymoronic materials: the first hyper-technological materials, borrowed from the world of transport, which represent lightness; the latter, symbol of craftsmanship and synonymous with strength. After the success of the stone and wood collection, the brand has in fact decided to evolve, while maintaining the elements that made it famous, minerals and essences, combined with high technology.
In fact, carbon fiber is a polymer characterized by resistance to breaking and traction, but extremely light, therefore capable of adapting perfectly to the stone front of the Catuma models and providing a graceful support to the veneers or stone placed on the temples, giving shapes timeless, elegant and sophisticated, a futuristic and modern touch. Furthermore, the carbon fiber is completely recyclable, chosen in line with the respect for nature that guides the company.
Soft leather details obtained from discarded bags, placed on the faces, harmonize the design of the glasses, giving warmth, enveloping and softness to the "cold" materials used, and emphasizing the uniqueness of Catuma, capable of finding the perfect balance between materials, design with a glam rock aesthetic.
The experience in the eyewear sector and the mastery and genius of the designer have therefore resulted in a collection with a strong character, but at the same time luxurious and unique. The shades of the stone, the grain of the wood, blend with an almost ethereal structure made of carbon, but extremely resistant, in a cutting-edge, characterizing and irreverent line.
A very thin silhouette made precious by slate and granite, for a hyper elegant but rebellious look, combined with precious details and shapes that bring to mind the place where the brand was born, Andria, city of Castel del Monte, UNESCO heritage, honored by a octagonal steel frame painted in shades with an antique effect, with carbon fiber temples covered with stone or wood veneers, in colors
reminiscent of antique furnishings of Frederick's manor.
Castel del Monte is famous all over the world for its unique structure, in which the number eight returns strongly: octagonal plan surrounded by eight octagonal towers, with eight rooms on the lower floor and eight rooms on the upper floor and with an octagonal internal courtyard , in the center of which there was an octagonal basin.
Like Frederick II, client of the Swabian castle, Catuma seeks perfection, made from a mix of geometry, design and originality.
