ON THE ROCK, as though wrought from stone itself, explores the work of the human hand upon the machine. They are the ultimate works in progress.
The concept was born of a furious desire for art and matter.
Through substitution and subversion – read completely bypassing certain phases of construction, we managed to divert the initial purpose of the machine to discover unfamiliar surfaces and a raw, even primitive aesthetic, that of the definitive prototype. Ultra-tailored, sophisticated, sculpted, the ON THE ROCK glasses offer radical volumes with frank, exposed edges.
All the while respecting the comfort, the very ergonomics of the objects being worn, this concept highlights the artisanal nature of the Maison’s work; with their vibrations, streaks and grooves, these devilishly arty frames demand tough love, testaments each to a new modernity that infuses back-to-nature-basics with an anti-bling agenda.
ON THE ROCK frames are for fans of Spartan elegance and fine materials still tattooed with the traces of their formation (untreated wood, ceramics, polished leather…), and those fond of finding alternative uses for things, genre-bending , and design still warm from the hand of Man.
