RGOUW2 LEWOOD

Codenamed “Le Wood”, this iconic collaborative style between RIGARDS and Uma Wang was designed to tie in with a reflection on dual themes:

The powerful mountains cape of the Andes, and the timeless elegance of Bauhaus ingenuity.

EXCLUSIVE EDITION

This frame is noteworthy for its one-off elements like the Vintage Gray rims & Light Mirror Finish lens and the Lacquer hand-technique that bends the rules of materiality.

LAQUER FINISHING

Choiced salvaged wood paired simply and harmoniously with ultralight aluminum-magnesium gets a second life in a frame that stands as a work of art.

"The wood is coated in gossamer-thin bamboo paper, and hand-painted in traditional lacquer technique."

Established with Careful drying, sanding, and smoothing between each layer , until the final matte top layer is applied to produce lacquer with less shine, delivering a unique rendition of the time-honoured art form.
