Like the WHITE HEAT of sunlight: A valley littered with gigantic blocks of white gold. A bright labyrinth in a surreal environ- ment. Where industry meets nature. Raw material is turned into high- quality marble. It has a strong character and embodies clean elegance. When a stonemason shapes an object from a block of marble, he puts all his emotions and feelings into his work and thus creates, through timeconsuming precision work, a special piece of art. Shapes are made from raw materials and worked until the designs nally become a reality. Our White Heat metal frames are created with a similar approach. In production they turn into something extraordinary. We wanted to reconsider the combination of acetate and metal in this collection. It’s a look at what shapes us and what turns people and glasses into characters.
