Campaign – 2018
Thinwood’s campaign have always been famous for its cool models, who happened to be our friends. Wondering why? First of all, we’ve got lucky to have a bunch of beautiful friends, but also love to see real people wearing our eyewear. On the occasion of shooting the LITE collection we teamed up with a wonderful creative couple Uchi and Milan to create a love story in the picturesque garden of the Writer’s Villa as a backdrop. LITE is our finest collection so far; the thinnest, lightest and the most fragile-looking pieces add up to a sophisticated look. The technical specifications are similar to titanium eyewear as the durable ultra-lightweight wooden material we use, provides a flexibility similar to titanium frames. Our LITE collection is mixing the two; even thinner wooden frames with titanium temples in five shapes and twenty-six colourways, hand-made in Budapest, Hungary.
Nestled in the Buda hills of Budapest, this lovingly restored nineteenth-century villa is packed with historical detail and snugs aplenty. The Writer’s Villa is one of the oldest properties on the Svábhegy, Budapest, Hungary and is a heritage listed building full of historical goodies. The house was built in 1881 for Baron József Szterényi de Brasso, the minister of commerce in the Austrian-Hungarian Double Monarchy. (Rumor has it that he had the house built for his mistress: a ballerina.) Szterényi started his career as a journalist and wrote several books. He was a maecenas of the arts and close with the famous Hungarian actresses and writers of his era. The Baron had an exceptionally large and beautiful Zsolnay fountain installed in the garden. In 1930, Baron Szterényi extended the loggia with a terrace. PS it’s available for rent!
