MADELEINE Sunglasses by Damir Doma - Mykita Gmbh

Home > Winners > #46668


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
MADELEINE

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Sunglasses

INSPIRATION:
The intention was to create an illusion and generate another dimension out of flat stainless steel. All within the possibilities of modern handcraft. Inspiration came from the pince-nez from the early 20th Century, the circular lenses appear to float before the frame-front. The trompe l’oeil aesthetic is accentuated by the visual reference to clip-on sunglasses from the 1980s.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
At first glance, the perfectly round MADELEINE appears to consist of two frames, but a closer look reveals the trompe l’oeil construction as an example of particularly sophisticated handcraft. Made of one piece the frame is essentially folded in half and brought into shape in a series of meticulous steps. The result is a distinctive aesthetic in which two delicate circular lenses hover in front of more solid round rims. Contrasting colours accentuate the layered concept.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
At first glance, the perfectly round MADELEINE appears to consist of two frames, but a closer look reveals the trompe l’oeil construction as an example of particularly sophisticated handcraft. Made of one piece the frame is essentially folded in half and brought into shape in a series of meticulous steps. The result is a distinctive aesthetic in which two delicate circular lenses hover in front of more solid round rims. Contrasting colours accentuate the layered concept. A touch eccentric, very elegant and thoroughly modern. It explores new ways of how to protect yourself from the dangerous UV light and gives you a possibility to express your eccentric inner self.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
MADELEINE was first exhibited at SILMO 2015 (25.-28. Sep).

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The aim was to create an illusion and bring another dimension into the flat stainless steel. This was achieved by transforming the flat stainless steel from bi-dimensional to tri-dimensional at its best. In actual fact the frame-front, as per MYKITA’s design principle, is made from one flat piece, which is folded in half in multiple steps by hand, gradually brought into shape and secured inside the outer frame with the help of two flaps. The construction is a tribute to modern handcraft.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions of MADELEINE: Width 144 mm x Depth 140 mm x Height 55 mm.
