On this year’s centenary of Ettore Sottsass’s birth, Spanish brand Nina Mûr eyewear presents a new eyewear collection in collaboration with Abet Laminati, inspired by the colours and formal shapes of the Memphis Group, founded by Sottsass himself and which has influenced many designers all over the world.
The collection presents glasses that are like small sculptures for the face, characterized by by beautifully carved decors in laminate.
Nina Mûr goes Memphis comprises two lines: Original Memphis, featuring unique details realized with the Bacterio pattern (in reduced scale) in Digital Print, and Basic Memphis, made up of monochromatic models with cleaner lines.
A collection that is further enriched by offering two main shapes: Nathalie, more feminine and clearly referring to Nathalie Du Pasquier, and Ettore, more masculine and clearly connected to the Italian artist. Each model is made of a base in HPL laminate with Nero decor onto which other Abet Laminati’s decors are applied: Rosa Baby and Blu Cobalto for the rings in both Nathalie’s and Ettore’s frames; the golden rings on Nathalie’s eyewear are from the Metalli collection.
