AirDP – Combined, a perfect mix

Combined is the result of the last challenge of AirDP: bringing together two totally different materials in a harmonious way

words Editorial Staff

The introduction of a new material, medical-grade steel, mixed with ultem, the traditional choice of AirDP. This is the last challenge accomplished by the Italian brand. AirDP is proud to introduce at Mido 2018 its new collection Combined. The name is due to the two different materials and types of contrasting processes put together to create highly innovative glasses with a lot of character, unique and impossible to replicate.

There are twelve models in five colors. Round is the main shape used, inspiring the creative imagination, perfect circles upon which to build surprising geometric inspirations: hearts, half moons, and octagons. Graphic elements inside the perimeter, inspired by the many meanings of the circle. The geometric meaning for the octagon, the authentic meaning for the heart, while the half moon comes from its references to space. The rectangle is referenced only once: in the squaring off of the circle! Overlapping materials, elements that fit together perfectly: high technology that leads to a smart, pop-inspired result, that is never heavy, in line with AirDP Style’s mantra: Lightness of touch. The bridge becomes an aesthetic accent: a decorative element that is doubled and tripled.
