If inspiration comes from art…

Catuma celebrates the deep connection between art, architecture and nature with the launch of the ArTchitecture collection

words Editorial Staff

The dialogue between art, architecture and nature is the fil rouge of the new Catuma collection, called ArTchitecture. The young brand of eyewear Made in Puglia, comes back to the love for craftsmanship and for the territory, without neglecting the continuous innovation and the use of unusual materials. The new collection has some peculiarities that bring to mind omnipresent themes in the architect’s work. Minimalism, strong materials, geometric but harmonious shapes: each of these elements has been reinvented by the Catuma designers and has become the protagonist of a sunglasses and eyeglasses collection in which the brand has highlighted its origin, Puglia, and specifically, Andria. The glasses are like artworks to admire: with a huge visual impact, given by a steel front, which expands on voluptuous and geometric designs on the top of it. Inserts in warm and precious wood essences, briar roots, ebony, teak, walnut and oak give to all models a warm and enveloping look, and bring to mind one of the main elements of the famous E-1027 villa designed by Eileen Gray: the majestic nautical map that stands in one of the rooms that Le Corbusier “defaced” with one of his murals.
