“The impulse to change gives rise to new visions that have their own identity.”

Giorgio, Andrea, Renato, Daniela are the four opticians and designers of OCCHI DI GARD from Rimini, who create this new generation of spectacles handmade in Italy, unique in its kind with a strong minimal modern style.

GARD essence is to enclose in a single object, materials and colors inspired by nature and design, related to the six geometric shapes that we can find in the brand. Symbols drawn by man throughout history, representing the deepest life foundations.

Spectacles frames production is made by using the best Mazzucchelli Italy acetates. Blocks of 10mm with high density cotton and without molecular alteration which, from the solid, are worked by the most skilled and expert craftsmen of Cadore.

This Method of working gives each model a high conceptual and qualitative content which guarantees a solid, Long-Lasting and comfortable structure. From 2012 to today research and development of these precious original design acetates, continue through accurate study and design work.

Symbology

CIRCLE is perfection, union, which does not break, as the spirit, as the soul’s immateriality. As the sky and clouds, something we can touch only with eyes.

ELLIPSE is the cyclical flow of all, the seed of life, everything comes back again to light as the first time. Like the earth, from which everything is born and into which everything returns continuously.

TRIANGLE is dynamism and stability, the axis of conjunction between matter and spirit, like us, body and soul. As the rocks of the mountain that rises from the earth to the sky.

RHOMBUS is fertility, reproduction, like the life that flows through all things, creating new life. Like plants, which always give rise to new shootse.

PENTAGON is the absolute transparency, crystal clarity, as the texture of the diamond, as the soul of everything. Like water flowing, like raindrops falling.

HEXAGON is change, like butterfly that born from metamorphosis, as human evolution. As the fire that purifies and like volcano lava that with its passage covers the past giving new form.
