Build for change the world

VAVA is a Portuguese eyewear brand known for its avant-garde designs inspired by minimalism, techno-futurism, and the Bauhaus movement. The brand creates unisex eyeglasses and sunglasses that flatter both male and female faces with a subtle, well-proportioned design language.

All VAVA frames are crafted in Italian family-owned factories using materials like eco-friendly and 100% recyclable Mazzucchelli bio-acetate. Another technical highlight is the ultra-lightweight aluminum hinges for which a patent is pending. For complete UV protection, the brand relies on Barberini Mineral Crystal Lenses. It’s simple: to look good and feel good, only the very best components available in the eyewear industry are used.

Behind the mysterious and futuristic name VAVA lies a world of artistic inspiration. Firstly, there is the Bauhaus movement and the influence of artists like Malevich, Josef Albers, and Sol LeWitt. Secondly, VAVA is inspired by sci-fi films and the neo-futurism of the 1980s, reflected in basic and angular shapes that can extend into oversized territory. The third inspiration: techno music! Whether it’s the hard Detroit-style techno or the club-like Berlin sound, techno resonates as a deep part of VAVA’s brand DNA.
