Cristiana Vannini describes her glasses concept as ‘micro architecture for the face’. The designer and art director of Fassamaneria srl – the company which owns the Milan-based reading glasses brand – has created a unique style of fast reader, worn on a chain or leather cord, specifically for instant tasks such as reading menus or text messages, with a luxurious artisan design – borne out of the Venetian craft tradition.
Created in hand polished Mazzucchelli 1849 acetate, with metal parts in laser-cut German silver, the product combines a beautifully-finished jewellery style with a practical, lightweight – yet sturdy – construction. A choice of 9 colours – including a delicate blue (Capri) and delightful spotted green havana – with variations for men and women, are available with lens strengths of +1 to +3.5 dioptres. Photochromic sun lenses have also been added to the range.
Elegant chains, charms and brooches with cabochons are available to transform the basic design, for those who wish to wear the design as an artistic piece of luxury jewellery. These chic distinctive details come to life in the sophisticated capsule collections by the talented jewellery designers Sharra Pagano and Laura B.
Fassamano was the winner of the Golden A’ Design Award and Competition 2019 in the ‘Jewellery, Eyewear and Watch Design category’, a well-known award which recognises qualities such as innovation and sustainability alongside design excellence.
