With the introduction of Compositions by Tim Van Steenbergen + theo – optics and art fuse naturally – and with exceptional distinction – into stunning, dramatic sunglasses. The Belgian duo frequently collaborates on eyewear, and the latest collection includes a third Belgian – the accomplished post-war artist, Guy Van Den Branden. Top image: Composition 1957 TVS + theo
Van Steenbergen is an admirer and collector of Van Den Branden’s paintings. The artist’s geometrical abstractions focus on composition, rhythm, form and colour…the same characteristics that highlight Van Steenbergen’s visionary insights. So it was an instinctive progression that Tim pay homage to the artist’s work.
There are six Compositions sunglass designs in the collection – offering an exciting harmony in titanium and acetate. The array of colours are amazing – from vivid and shiny – to mysterious darker hues – for a total of eight specialised theo-colours.
The interplay of material and colour, further enhanced with the arcs and lines that criss-cross the frames, transform recognisable shapes. The outcome is a unique ‘constructivist’ sunglass collection with highly individual composites – resulting in beautiful and impressive eyewear. Explore more at www.theo.be JG
