Many eyewear designers reinvent their image in collaboration with artists, benefiting from their fame, skills, and sensitivity. Artists are infinitely creative and designers understand this!
Glasses Designers and Artists
The German eyewear brand Mykita has teamed up with illustrator Rafael Varona to customize all the shop windows in their stores around the world.
Mykita stands out for its independence and character. For this reason, the choice of an artist like Rafael Varona, whose unique universe and brand are easily recognized, was a natural one. These keywords define the collaboration: “magic”, “mysterious” and “winter.” Storefronts and packaging for Mykita have been decorated with soft and colorful shapes—forests full of surprises that are characteristic of Varona’s style.
This is a beautiful graphic collaboration that demonstrates Mykita’s status not only as a high-tech brand, but also one that is inventive and poetic!
When architects get involved, original designs are born.
By doubling design’s technical creativity, architects are able to improve further upon the achievement of eyewear designers’ goals. Optical shop La Fabrique de Lunettes is located in an unusual place. In collaboration with Marc Ifrah Architecture, the designer set up shop in a former bank, on the ground floor of a Parisian Haussmann building. The store is organized like a large apartment, with an entryway, a lounge, a playroom for children, and a laboratory. In other words, this is a location that reflects real life.
One cannot ignore the beautiful showroom of French designer Anne and Valentin, also located in SoHo, a favorite place for designers. It is a contemporary space with exposed metal beams, decorated with the walnut furniture design of Aardvark Interiors. The space represents a perfect harmony between a retro and workshop style! The project was called aa64 Architecture x Ideal Interiors.
