New concepts and colours are added in the CARBONWOOD collection, a key line in the Jean-François Rey collections from France. Research carried out into the qualities offered by different materials allow for stylistic effects in sophisticated and strong associations and a pared-down look that is both fashionable and modern for men. The line includes models JF2930 and JF2931 which focus on aesthetics and a mix of materials. Influenced by the codes of vintage with contemporary design, the singular style of the frames lies in the specialist work on the frame fronts: cut from plates of just 3.5 mm thickness, the designs are made up of superimposed sheets of carbon and wood welded together with a natural resin. The technical assembly is ordered in a thoughtful layering to offer the most beautiful shades of wood, the most beautiful effects of texture and relief in a mesmerizing balance, according to the company. Woody hues alongside electric colour variations or soft harmonious tonal schemes appear in contrasts of styles and colours that enhance the simplicity of the shape and give the models their assertive graphic entity. All the Carbonwood models feature flex hinges, and a careful attention to detail – a signature of the brand.
