When Jins asked me to design titanium and aluminum glasses I didn't immediately think of a new shape, but I concentrated on hinges, I was looking for an idea for a new "relationship" between the parts that form the eyeglasses, between frame and temples. For me it is important to pay attention to the relationship between the component parts and to the relationships between us and the objects because we test them, sometimes unconsciously, with all our senses, not only with sight. I believe in an aesthetic of the relationship, that is, an aesthetic that is not only linked to the shape of the object but also to the way it functions. Technology, allowing the integration of functions, helps to produce light and simple objects, and this is very important because simplicity, which means complexity resolved, is for me an “almost biological” need.
