Lunettes Kollektion’s designer Uta Geyer looked to the geometric shapes in the art and design of the Russian Constructivists from the 1920s for inspiration when she designed the brand’s latest collection of eyewear: ‘Constructivismo’.
That period saw an entirely new approach to making objects, one which sought to abolish the traditional artistic concern with the beauty of composition, and replace it with ‘construction’ – a technical exploration of modern materials. This influence is clearly evident in the top edge of the revolutionary rounded frame pictured.
Despite being an ultra modern German brand, all of Lunettes Kollektion’s eyewear is assembled by hand at a small family-run factory in Northern Italy, resulting in a seamless melding of old-fashioned quality and modern design.
