Hapterìa

HAPTER was founded in 2013 in the Italian secluded mountain town of Belluno, the area which is the cradle, since more than a century, of the world’s most prominent eyewear district. However, like a post-industrial gene mutation, it totally dissociated from this motionless under-layer: it dissected and deconstructed the ancient mastery of building glasses conducted unchanged through time, and developed its own technique: radical, experimental, progressive, and highly technical, combining materials of different nature like surgical stainless steel, artisanal cotton fabrics, industrial rubber, and more to come.

HAPTERÌA | THE WORKSHOP

 

HAPTER’s design studio and workshop, Hapterìa, is where ideas born in the mountains become reality.

Set in the ancient burg of Borgo Prà, Belluno, locally famous for its long hot-work tradition of sword production, it is in essence a laboratory of contemporary art. A place where handiwork and technology overlap and are combined with alchemies and meticulously planned processes.  the end product being a compound of both sensorial craftship and industrial appeal.

 

It’s an inspiring area, and the perfect place to become the driving force of a new community of creative professionals, artists and artisans. From this tiny, but grand spot, HAPTER creates beauty for people all over the world.

 

“In the HAPTER we find all the Genius Loci, the talent of the place where it was born”
