Tavat – Balancing function and harmony

The new Tavat collection SpamCan is a playful offshoot to their SoupCan collection – an avant-garde proposal with industrial strength

words Editorial Staff

Tavat’s SpamCan collection draws its inspiration from the 40s when the attack on Pearl Harbor led America to enter into World War II. Food was short and Spam and canned cooked meat became increasingly popular, especially in Hawaii. The love affair started way back then and has continued to today where Spam remains a staple food, holding its own place in their culinary tradition and with limitless appeal. Tavat playfully brings their original ‘SoupCan’ design into the next decade, by releasing an eyewear collection inspired by the brick-shaped, tin can. Each style is made in northern Italy, by hand and with great attention to detail. The SpamCan collection is made from a blend of different alloys of bronze, zinc and nickel. A protective coating is applied to each frame in order to guarantee that the product conforms to international standards. The overall construction is an elaborate work-of-art consisting of 27 components.
Each pair of glasses combines the latest in manufacturing technology whilst remaining true to the brand’s artisan roots.
