CURVA speaks the language of sculpture. It represents the quintessence of Jacques Durand’s design research and the mastery of our craft. Our skilled artisans work from a single-piece 10 mm thick acetate plate, carving the solid mass of material to achieve the desired, exceptionally ergonomic form of the inside of frames. Like a sculpture, the work develops as an organic whole. Gold plated hinges complete the frames. Crafted from Japanese acetate.
Each frame is made in Italy. Production is carried out in our workshop and premises in Montecchio Maggiore, Vicenza, Italy. Transparent production is an integral part of our identity. Each frame comes with a manufacturing card detailing the production process. Craftsmen and manufacturers involved in each stage of production as well as the geographic location are listed in order to guarantee traceability.
