Corbs – points of the future
The new line of sunglasses from the Israeli designer Rhone of Arad and the British brand of PQ Eyewear made furor, thanks to the distinctive features and brisk character. The painter, the designer and the thinker of Ron Arad decided to introduce something resolutely new in the world of points. «New ideas are very important. The most part of trousers look as trousers, sweaters – as sweaters, the most part of points look as points, but always and everywhere there is a place for new ideas. It for the sake of what I work», – is told by the designer.
These unusual points are made on the basis of usual styles which never get out of fashion. In the Corbs collections innovative loops and fastenings which are more functional, than in ordinary models are used. They allow time and for a long time to clean dely weakening of handles. In each product the unique idea is put. Actually seeming integral points are made of a set of sculptural blocks. This concept appeared at designers in the course of supervision over vertebras of animals. The top fastenings are connected with inside that allows points to bend inside to allocate unity of a form.
The frame structure completely consists of a wire. The "nasal" part contains unlimited quantity of grooves that lenses of points could move further or more closely to each other, is dependent on height on which they are established. Such principle of adjustment allows people with the different sizes and shapes of the head and a nose to adjust points under itself, that increasing their comfort. No matter what Corbs steam it is packed into the transparent case from silicone rubber for reliable and comfortable storage.
New line of points same bright and being remembered, as well as other sculptural works of Ron Arad. In the London’s Chalk Farm studio, the designer connects daring ideas and advanced technologies for production of conceptual products of all forms and the sizes: from the bent book shelf to creative seats in the car.
