Annaliese is challenging the elements, well at least three of them, while dancing in the rain and wearing these two amazing frames by Neubau Eyewear. The bold, cheerful and sophisticated cat-eye “Heidi“, a super thin and lightweight frame, created out of recycled stainless steel, and the superb, brave, and handsome “Franz“, a Masculin aviator style in the same design language as his cat-eye sister.
The 4 color tones are inspired by the hues of fire and its transformation to coal – from gold to rose gold to black.
Neubau eyewear draws inspiration from the four elements
For us, ‘NEUBAU pioneers sustainable avantgarde’ is all about seeing innovation and design from a new perspective and exploring new horizons
With a focus on respect for nature and its resources, NEUBAU has been inspired by the 4 elements, using the paradox of nature’s resilience and fragility to create expressive eyewear styles. In settings ranging from the warm glow of the desert to a green oasis, international models showcase the sustainable premium collections against the unmistakable backdrop of South Africa.
The striking visuals are the result of a collaboration with German fashion photographer Nadia von Scotti, who lives in South Africa. With the use of their 100 percent bio-based material natural3D in the Earth collection, the Austrian eyewear label is once again combining modern design and resource-efficient production with 3D printing. The first collection – Water – will be launched in January 2021.
In the four collections Water, Air, Fire and Earth, NEUBAU is conveying its clear attitude and streamlined vision for the year. The brand is presenting a mix of sunglasses and optical models that incorporate innovative design and avant-garde elements. High-quality, sustainable materials and soft color palettes are what set the styles apart.
While muted earthy tones, pastels and off-colors reflect the natural lightness and ease that the collection stands for, the frames impress with a minimalist, but expressive style. By using bio-based materials like naturalPX and natural3D, along with resource-efficient production methods, NEUBAU is once again emphasizing its own pioneering spirit. Timeless stainless-steel frames perfectly round off the collections. All designs combine flexibility, stability, resilience, durability, and comfort.
