Anne et Valentin CAPELLA, a panto like a jewel, something of a parallelogram, a little retro, sophisticated and complex. Its insolent bridge frees its arcades. Full, untied, a measured geometry (a 135 ° angle is not invented, it is calculated) and a gentle touch: CAPELLA brings structure and graphics to small faces. Playful sobriety: 1 – Austerity: 0.
Anne et Valentin CAPELLA is part of the COMPOSITION collection. A feminine, all-metal, all-titanium concept, COMPOSITION appeals to the critical mind within us all. The layering of shapes and materials, the fundamental forms – circle, semicircle, triangle – the very fine threads, nested, graceful: COMPOSITION draws freely on abstraction, modernism and constructivism.
Kandinsky, Margaret De Patta, Moholy-Najy… Such fertile spirits who have inspired our creation studio to come up with these celestial mechanics.
The arms, like the keys of wind instruments, balance the curved bridges, like fluid and regular line drawings, and create the connection, with lightness. The fuselage of the arms, the arcades that support the eye and hold the attention, act like makeup, without overdoing it.
The lines are crisp and pure, like the colors. Rigour, precision and detail. Frames imagined as modern sculptures, or jewelry.
Anne et Valentin believes a frame should not only flatter and complement, but express who you really are. And while their creations are original, colorful and lively, they are, above all, objects that combine ergonomics, technical requirements, and respect for those who wear them.
