“I have found that all ugly things are made by those who strive to make something beautiful, and that all beautiful things are made by those who strive to make something useful.”– Oscar Wilde
Ciao! We are a group of designers based in Milan (Italy) that works in the fashion industry collaborating with some of the most important brands of the international scene. We have always given the same importance to aesthetics and functionality, an object is not an end in itself, it has a function that has to be fulfilled in the best way possible. Our mission is to create an object that protects the person that is wearing it and at the same time offer comfort and elegance.
With FACE FORS we have created a knitted mask that is made with two yarns, the first is made of polyamide fiber in which silver ions are inserted directly during the spinning process, meaning that it limits the bacterial growth preventing body odor. The second fiber is made of polypropylene with thermal integrator that adapts to body and environment temperature. Furthermore, the mask is finished with a water-repellent treatment to keep droplets away from the person wearing the mask. The mask is knitted all in one piece, including the ear-loops so they cannot detach.
The mask is washable and reusable, which reduces the waste compared to single-use masks.
