Lightbird – Moon and Asteroid

Colours and shapes are the fundamental elements of the new models

words Editorial Staff

The inspiration for the two new models of Lightbird comes from space and literature. The new eyewear brand created by the Bellunese designer Corrado Rosson, has launched two models for the autumn-winter 19/20 season: Moon and Asteroid. The names are evocative and are derived from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a tribute wanted by Rosson for the common values the book shares with the brand, such as dream, passion, light and balance.

Moon and Asteroid are part of the first Light_MATTER collection, consisting of thirteen optical and five sun models. The collection features geometries characterized by an alternation of lines and shapes that can be both sharp and decisive and rounded and sinuous. The choice of colours is dynamic, ranging from monochromatic tone-on-tone to two-tone models with animalier acetates and defined colours. Lightbird is also characterized by technological innovation: the 100% Made in Italy brand offers  a new material called Light_MATTER, derived from the union of two materials: Italian acetate and hi-tech light aluminium alloy.
