MOSAIC Eyewear is excited to officially announce that they are the ZEN Barcelona distributors for the US market. In a deal finalized last November, the two companies formalized plans for the official announcement to be made at Vision Expo East in New York.
ZEN is based in Barcelona, Spain, one of the most artistic cities in the world. Barcelona is a dynamic city that is home to historic buildings, including the avant-garde architecture of Anton Gaudi and the world respected University of Barcelona. The collection often shows bright colors balanced with minimalist designs inspired by the streets and energy of one of Europe’s most artistic and vibrant cities.
ZEN eyewear’s innovative team create unique designs that exhibit a fascination and respect for tradition combined with a love of invention and technology. Classic designs are revisited and blended with new materials like Tecnomol. Tecnomol was the result of a desire to create an “invisible acetate” in collaboration with the University of Barcelona.
The patented h-Pipe hinge design is another example of ZEN creativity in action.
The collections use a wide variety of such as surgical grade Stainless Steel, a new type of Damascus Steel, Aerospace grade Duraluminium 7075, TR90, Grilamide, Bio-Titanium and Tecnomol.
ZEN is not forgetting the old ways, the ZEN creative team turned to traditional Japanese hand-made methods to produce the beautiful stone polished acetates in the Osaka micro collection.
