Thursday, March 19 2015 | 00 h 00 min | New Products
COS has been the exclusive Canadian distributor of ZEN Barcelona for more than a year now. From the first presentation of their successful collection in 2005 at SILMO’s fair to today, ZEN has been increasing its presence in the optical market and is today sold in more than 40 countries.
Back in 2004, as Antonio Castañeda, the CEO of D & R Optical, was drawing the first sketches of what soon became ZEN Barcelona, his goal was to create art different from mass-production and conformity.
Each shape and colour of the collections is inspired from Barcelona, its historic buildings and avant-garde architecture, and its typical vitality. Furthermore, the design team of ZEN Barcelona relies on four pillars when developing new frames: pure concept, a talent for production, discipline in the details and ongoing innovation.
The brand is constantly researching new materials, combinations, shapes and techniques to offer new solutions and finishes with each collection.
Its CEO, Antonio Castañeda, even collaborates with the Department of Innovation and Technology of the University of Barcelona (UAB), on researching new non-pollutant frame materials such as their coconut fibre and other organic material.
