The Berlin eyewear brand Kuboraum unveiled their joint project with the contemporary artist Danilo Bucchi, based on the strong desire of creative exchange and mutual esteem between the artist and the Kuboraum founders Livio Graziottin and Sergio Eusebi.
The collection of ten unique one-of-a-kind masks has been presented at Monocle Eyewear Gallery in the heart of Rome. Emphasizing the conceptual aspect of eyewear, Danilo Bucchi chose three distinctive and iconic Kuboraum designs as canvas working directly on the acetate masks with various techniques of incisions, resining, collage and bas-relief. The artist adds an extra dimension to the masks, leaving signs of his pictorial gesture in the three dimensional space.
These uniquely crafted sculptural pieces of art are exhibited in their own custom-made iron and perspex display cases, accompanied by a polaroid of the mask, signed by Danilo Bucchi and are on show at Monocle Eyewear Gallery (Rome, Via Campo Marzio 13) until the end of January 2018.
