Dear REIZ - friends,
in the meantime, we all know what's going on around the world. Some regions are completely sealed off, many companies and shops will remain completely closed.
We are trying very hard to remain capable of acting ourselves and to continue to support you and be there for you during this time.
The current situation demands a lot from all of us, but we are confident that every single person can contribute and help to make the best out of it.
Reflections, layered light – frayed at the edges. Glass reflections, illuminated forms that give birth to shadows. Soft light – hard light that combines to form collages and overlapping creates its own world of polygons, jagged lines and surreal games. Structures and compositions, angles and radii. A typology of harmonies, simplicity and sophistication. Light that illuminates the beauty of detail. The fascination of our opto-tectonic forms is based on the understanding and attention to the microcosm of these subtle nuances.
Trade show, Munich, Reiz and Opti – a collage of people, friends, laughter and lights that blur into a visual buzz.
Leaves of various decent are playing ring-a-ring ‘o roses in public squares. Playing tag, chasing and ruffling each other. Doing pirouettes. Once rich in colour they blend into a mélange. The third season creates shades. The new nuances of the Optitektur-line with its swirling autumn colours evoke the charm of this earthy atmosphere. A triad of “Plum”, a ripe plum-red, of “Ocean” an allusion to the microcosm of a puddle and of “Marigold”, an homage to the curative powers of the marigold flower.
All new colours in spherical gradients and cloud layers.
If the sky was green and the meadows were blue, stones were soft and the imagination wasn’t infinite, then we’d know that our frames should always be monochrome. Although this mind game is seductive, we love variety and the interplay with colors. Polychrome spectacles, inspired by color harmonies. Gradients from an atumnal meadow to the bluish-greyish color of dense fog or of a setting summer sun at the beach. From the earthy red of Mars to a warm yolk nuance. Color combinations that touch us and unobtrusively form a soul relationship with the spectacles’ shape. Rarely, color effect and frame were as intertwined as in these four color gradients composed by us. Polychrome has arrived in a four-color unity.
Glasses – Ballet – The Munich Brillett. The stage work, in which the glasses are in the foreground. A drama that invites to form dance by means of design. A three-day festival, an optitectonic opera, a Pas de Deux – left glass, right glass. Variations in the version. Swan Lake of the lines. Tchaikovsky for the eyes. Optimal vertical axis. Rotation, crack, cake colors. Arabesque – stretched temple. Attitude – curved temple. The Reiz-Brillett, technique, aesthetics, optics and interpretation. Cabriole!
slight sweetness and the reflection of the dew
Unexcited good. A classic simple cake. No magic, good ingredients, time and realism. We taste the Bourbon vanilla and sun-ripened strawberry cream on a biscuit dough. Not more. We bite into a big piece and the taste designs the colors in front of our eyes. A delicate synesthesia symphony. No boom, but a fusion of light sweetness and morning Taureflexion. Taste meets colors. Plain vanilla and strawberry cream. Real cake colors.
The smell of the rain or the yearning for the sun
Why not just do what you feel like doing. Hot summer days slowly turn into the cuddly autumn time. Close the eyes and breathe in the smell of the rain falling on the dry earth. Asphalt, stone, earth and city. Or dream of the sun, the sand and the vastness. Enjoy the petrichor moment or the thought of hot summer days. Just as you like.
in a cacao frenzy
Look at the world through cacao lenses and feel just like after a delicious cup of chocolate. Experience cacao and drown in a tinted world full of mysteries. Chrystal as sunglasses. Ethereal and sweet. Reciprocal relationships. Tinted crystal. Spherical and cosy. A liaison of structure, precision through cacao eyes.
Die neue Serie "Structure" bezieht sich auf optitektonische Strukturen und auf die Brillenevolution von REIZ. Struktur ist das Muster von Relationen, nach denen Elemente aufeinander bezogen sind. Die Gestaltung bezieht sich auf das System der Reduktion, das Sinngefüge der Kurven, das Gerüst der Augenpoesie, den Aufbau elementarer Harmonieproportionen und auf das Geflecht von Technik, Gestaltung und der Leidenschaft für Brillen. Proportion ist das Spiel der Vereinigung von gegensätzlichen Anordnungen. In der neuen Serie "Structure" werden Einheiten und Diskrepanzen zu einer optitektonischen Formensprache vermählt. Der Reiz der Klarheit und die ausgewogene Relation von Linien und Formen begründen das System von "Structure".
