Berlin-based Kuboraum creates avant-garde eyewear, referring to each frame as a mask. The name ‘Kuboraum’ means cubic room and each mask offers shelter and the ability to look at the world through two lenses.
The brand was founded in Berlin by artist, sculptor, and designer Livio Graziottin and anthropologist and brand director Sergio Eusebi. The pair met in Berlin in 2009 and began working together, in the rooms of a former post office on the border between East and West Berlin.
Whilst it was originally established as an art gallery, the space quickly became the place where ideas and new projects were generated and today houses the studio, showroom and the flagship Kuboraum store.
The duo oversees every aspect of the brand, from design to brand identity, image to communication, photo to video productions and from installations to interior design projects.
Their first collection of five models launched in 2012, with each piece aesthetically dramatically different to the typical design of eyewear at that time. Featuring bold, structural forms inspired by contemporary art and timeless craftsmanship, Kuboraum masks have adorned the faces of numerous celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Elton John, Kate Winslet and Justin Bieber.
Each frame is designed in Berlin whilst the traditional, artisanal production takes place in Italy: dreamed in Berlin and handmade in Italy. Using only the finest materials, consideration of the human and environmental impact of production is a priority.
We are thrilled to be one of only a handful of stockists of this unique and highly sought-after brand in London and we would love to show you some of the collection when you are next in Chelsea, SW3.
