We’re all a bit in love with the new Synaesthesia line from Face à Face.
synaesthesia (ˌsɪniːsˈθiːzɪə ) noun
a sensation experienced in a part of the body other than the part stimulated
the subjective sensation of a sense other than the one being stimulated. For example, a sound may evoke sensations of colour
It’s fine art, it a mixing of senses, as it’s really pretty!
From the media release:
“Many famous artists are gifted with synaesthesia and have the ability to see and sense colour and form in a way that is surreal to others,” explains Pascal Jaulent, Head of Design at FACE A FACE, and elaborates “We have found it very intriguing and fascinating to explore the many dimensions of this ability.”
The design team has worked boldly in creating eyewear with contrasts of colour and materials, that are like unique pieces of art – not leaving a single detail up for chance. And the result is alluring: a new surprising collection by FACE A FACE filled with magical colours and elaborate shapes.
“It truly requires passion and a sense of ‘synaesthesia’ to have this amount of accuratesse in choice of colours and shapes,” says Jaulent.
