VANNI, the "Made In Italy" eyewear company with a presence in more than 40 countries worldwide and a supporter of emerging art for over a
decade, is opening a new dialogue with arts by launching CONCRETE: a multidisciplinary project and special capsule collection of eyeglasses
designed with the artist Cristian Chironi, curated by Artissima.
CONCRETE is not only a series of eyeglasses, but was also an interactive performance in the spaces of the fair and an installation at the VANNI Showroom.
The project was conceived from VANNI's desire to weave together the process of eyewear design and the visionary quality of contemporary art,
providing highly specialised know-how and the most innovative techniques of eyeglass crafting.
The capsule collection "VANNI for Artissima, CONCRETE by Cristian Chironi" consists of a limited series of 400 metal framed glasses
with photochromic coloured lenses: 4 models (unisex/women's) that pull inspiration from the diverse places in the world where the artist has lived and worked: Casa Wabi, Puerto Escondido; Unité d'Habitation, Marseille;
Villa Pierre Jeanneret, Chandigarh; Casa Victoria Ocampo, Buenos Aires.
Colour, composition, aesthetic form, and arrangement, recall the mental impression and lived experiences involved in the creation of this project, constructing a new relationship between design, architecture, installation,
performance, the visual dimension, and narration.

Vanni est une société italienne qui a réalisé avec l'artiste Cristian Chironi la ligne de lunettes en édition limité "CONCRETE by Cristian Chironi", inspirée par son travail d'artiste et conçue comme partie d'un projet multidisciplinaire. Les lunettes sont vue/solaire, féminines et unisexes, totalement réalisés en Italie.
Vu le lien étroit avec l?architecture, et en particulier celle de Le Corbusier et l'Unité d'habitation de Marseille, nous présentons les 4 modèles de lunettes à l'occasion du projet "Marseille Drive", inauguré le 12 septembre 2020 dans le cadre de Manifesta/Marseille.
