In 1964, Joël Lesca created his first collection in a small workshop in the Secrétan district of Paris.
Between the 50s and 60s Joel Lesca witnessed a stylistic and creative revolution in design (furniture, fashion, architecture …), but also the emergence of new industrial techniques that allowed the production of glasses in series (with the development of modern eyewear factories in France and the birth of cellulose acetate).
Joel Lesca has always been inspired by the decisive style of this period, creating frames with a pronounced thickness that enhances the particularity of the material (the frames worn by Le Courbusier were of fundamental inspiration).
The children, Mathieu and Bertrand, who grew up in the laboratory and have always been surrounded by glasses, are, quite naturally, conquered by the contagious passion of their father who wanted to pass on the family know-how to them.
Today, while remaining creative and modern, they try to revive the same collections of the past by enhancing their history and respecting their DNA.
