A Lesson in Wabi-Sabi Aesthetic
“Wabi – sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble – it is a beauty of things unconventional”
This is a very simple definition for a complex and ambiguous Japanese philosophy that my friend Rein introduced me to a long time ago. Similarly Ti Kwa's Rigards tarnished, scratched and irregular surfaces, appear to stem from the same observation of nature and it's material qualities.
This is by far one of the most poetic takes on eyewear I have seen in recent years, its approach a marked departure from mare shapes, Rigards talks about materials (horn) and textures like few others have dared!
