THE FIRST LIGHTBIRD'S COLLECTION
LIGHTBIRD is the new brand in the eyewear panorama founded by the Italian designer Corrado Rosson. The 100% Made in Italy brand has debuted at MIDO 2019.
Light, passion, innovation and color are core aspects of the Bellunese brand that designer Corrado Rosson wanted to express in his first independent collection.
The innovation is in the D.N.A. of the brand, LIGHTBIRD in fact adopts a new material called Light_MATTER, derived from the union of two materials: Italian acetate and light alloy of high-tech aluminum. Light_MATTER collection is also the name given to the first collection, consisting of fifteen models of which thirteen are optical, man, woman and unisex, and two sunglasses models for woman.
The names of the models - Heart, Planet, Desert, Fox, Queen, Vulcan, Earth, Moon, Prince, Asteroid, Water - are inspired by the places and characters of "The Little Prince" and evoke aspects of the brand values such as passion, light, balance, naturalness in wearability, the material and the importance of quality style and materials.
The geometries are characterized by an alternation of lines and shapes that can be sharp and decisive, as in FOX LB002 model for men, or rounded and sinuous, as in PLANET LB003 model for women. The colors choice is dynamic, ranging from monochromatic tone-on-tone models to two-tone models with animalier acetates or strong colors. The innovative composite material Light_MATTER allows playing on the chromatic contrasts between the two materials that make up the front. They range from the Mirror "Natural Light" combined with a very modern Etheric Pink acetate, to a Hi-Tech Anthracite "Light off" combined with brightly colored plastics, such as Light Orange or more tone on tone like Bright Black.
HEART – THE ICONIC MODEL
The iconic model created for the first collection is HEART, the only feminine frame able to stand out in the world of eyewear. With its appearance, this unique model has the ambition to communicate all the values contained in the new brand.
"Heart wants to be a vehicle for a message: great passion, creativity, Made in Italy and, being the heart of a bird, is the allegory of the man who tends to rise, fly, even if by nature he cannot do it. However, at the same time, this angular heart represents the conflict in the human soul, the representation of contrasts and impulses that often make you accomplish the unexpected and make life so intense and exclusive.”
One of the distinctive elements of LIGHTBIRD is technology, not only productive but also linked to the digital world. In the temple tip the QR code, scanned through the camera of a common smartphone can connect you digitally to Light_NEST, the "nest" of Lightbird. The optician, agent and end customer will thus automatically create a community that, through the company portal, will create opportunities for loyalty and work.
