HAPTER | THE ORIGIN is a three-minute production which transmits the atmosphere and visual grandeur that influenced the concept of HAPTER glasses, created through a special fusion of surgical stainless steel and high-end fabrics by Lanificio F.lli Cerruti.
SOLITARY ROMANTIC HERO
In the black and white sequences, filmed at the Cinque Torri in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Belluno, Italy the protagonist is a romantic hero, who, while confronting the harshness of the ascent up the mountain walls, is actually digging into the abyss of his soul to find the strength and self-awareness that will accompany him forever.
The protagonist is guided in part by an internal struggle between himself and an infinite search for perfection, and in part by his determination to reach high summits to satisfy his need for discovery and knowledge of the outdoors.
Inside the complex of smelting furnaces in the Valle Imperina, Belluno, Italy, the objects create a common thread between the narrative movements. Hammer, wedges, spikes that remind the protagonist of the emotion perceived on his climbs; these are sacred objects that belong to his symbolic universe - of his existence in the world.
Setting the snow goggles aside, our protagonist labours with his hands to recreate glasses that are able to transmit the same emotions to him that he feels during his explorations, and particularly perceived during the discovery of the old military goggle.
