Longing for Barcelona
The scent of salt water, the sway of palm trees dancing in the wind… We’re still thinking about the lookbook shoot we did in Barcelona.
The scent of salt water, the sway of palm trees dancing in the wind… We’re still thinking about the lookbook shoot we did in Barcelona. The balmy breeze cocoons us like a warm blanket. There’s nothing more relaxing than visiting an inspiring city like Barcelona and inhaling the smell of summer.
For our SS 18 campaign, we visited Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Barcelona Pavilion; the architect’s 1920s designs are still groundbreaking today within architecture all over the world. Precision is definitive of van der Rohe’s way of working, with clean lines and simple forms defining his style. The focus falls on architectural simplicity which is refined right down to the smallest detail.
neubau eyewear’s models focus on timeless design. The minimalist shapes have been meticulously conceptualised and are made to the highest quality. Contrast is created through exciting and vibrant shades of color which perfectly correspond to the frames’ form.
We also visited the city’s Jardín Botánico. The Botanical Garden is one of the largest green spaces in Barcelona and is home to the most beautiful plants in the world. Six different climate zones transport you to far-flung places like South Africa, South Australia, Chile, California or the Canary Islands. From magnificent palm trees to old olive trees, the Jardín Botànico features over 1,500 different plant species.
We always try to be kind to the environment, think of the future and keep our eco-footprint as small as possible. Our advice? Design, quality and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. On the contrary: together, they can work to make something great! We use the innovative material naturalPX which is an environmentally friendly polymer made from biological and renewable raw materials. We don’t just consider the environment, but high quality too: all our glasses are flexible, durable and extraordinarily light.
