LIGHTBIRD WINS THE SILMO D’OR PREMIERE CLASSE
PLANET, the iconic women’s sun model from Lightbird has been awarded the special jury prize Silmo d’Or Premiere Classe 2019.
Congratulations to the Italian brand LIGHTBIRD for winning this prestigious award at this year’s Silmo Edition. The award ceremony was held on 28th September in Paris in the spectacular Pavillon d’Armenonville, where an international jury – made up of industry professionals, designers and journalists – unveiled the names of the winners of this edition.
“It was an explosion of sudden joy. My team and I received the news in the hall during the ceremony and we went directly on stage to collect the prize. Being awarded the Silmo d’Or fills us with satisfaction for the work done so far and gives us the energy to continue this adventure that began less than a year ago“, says Corrado Rosson, who received the award for the third time in his career as a designer and the first with his own brand LIGHTBIRD.
The winner model >> PLANET LB003 << from the Light_Matter collection is characterized by a retro style shape. The rounded lenses bring us back to the first decades of the twentieth century, but the innovative production system leads to a contemporary style. On the left lense sits a small detail that recalls the LIGHTBIRD’s logo: the eye of the bird. By means of adhesives used in aerospace, the two materials become one, which is then accurately manufactured in a traditional and artisanal way.
The women’s sun collection includes three colors including an exciting Etheric Pink contrasting with a front Mirror “Natural Light” and Mirror Pink lenses. Ideal for those who want to take flight with 100% Made in Italy style and creativity.
