One, Kuboraum, with a minimalistic design, the other, Anna-Karin Karlsson, more eccentric.
Livio Graziottin, an artist and designer, and Sergio Eusebio, an anthropologist, cool hunter and stylist, started working together after meeting in Berlin. Some time later, on a trip to Italy, they encountered Antonio Pinyin, an engineer with experience in the eyewear business, and the follow afternoon they drew up the first Kuboraum collection on paper.they work on concepts rather than seasons, they are free from any seasonal trends. Their collection is made up of many concepts and one identity, so sometimes they add to their collection with new models of an existing concept, or a new concept altogether.
Anna-Karin Karlsson is Swedish,
she started to work in the oldest and one of the most renowned opticians in London,
she developed a deep understanding of the artisanal work. The designer's vision and style originates from the juxtaposition of music, art and the theatrical. In 2010 Anna-Karin moved to a cottage in the Swedish countryside to create couture eyewear. Animals, flowers and three-dimensional prints decorate heavy graphic frames.
