neubau eyewear is an independent lifestyle eyewear brand – based in beautiful Austria – offering a wide selection of pretty amazing (and sustainable) optical frames and sunglasses. With no doubt, were re talking about one of the hippest eyewear brands around the block.
The brand`s name neubau pays tribute to international creative hubs, including Vienna’s Neubau district, located in the pulsating heart of the Austrian capital. A place where artists, creative souls and up-and-coming talents connect, this hood is comparable to other creative neighbourhoods spread across the globe: from Shoreditch to Williamsburg, from Le Marais to Isola. And no one wonders that neubau`s creations steeply reach a rising popularity among those urban creatives.<
Commemorating 100 years since the Bauhaus art movement, neubau eyewear’s special edition “Walter & Wassily” pays homage to the German art school’s director, Walter Gropius and the trailblazing painter of the era, Wassily Kandinsky.
The signature metal tubes of the Bauhaus epoch were translated into an adaptable titanium frame, the unmistakable circle became a central design element being turned in a futuristic 3D print, and essential shades such as brass, black and silver provide an interesting contrast to this high-end frames.
For the official “Walter & Wassily” campaign shoot, neubau reinterpreted the legendary Bauhaus credo “form follows function” and, adopted the motto into “human follows form”, showing how design and people can be staged as an innovative duo.
We couldn’t help but fall in love with this stylish tribute to Bauhaus.
