An interview with

Mohamed Musa

Musa is a Cubitts optical associate, a student of architecture, and a very charming young man. All this you may have already ascertained, from the cooly-self assured Cartwright in Sage he wears perched upon his nose.

We posed him some questions about his hopes and aspirations and spectacles and everything in between.

Cubitts: What word would people use to describe you?
Musa: Charming (I did ask).

C: What three words would you use to describe yourself?
M: A warm, curious extrovert.

C: What is the most beautiful thing in the world?
M: If the case is being made for a material thing then nature or if we are considering immaterial phenomena then I would say joy and happiness gained from the pleasure of one’s passion, whether it be the company of loved ones or the pursuit of fulfilment.

C: Why do you study architecture?
M: It is the marriage of all things creative and it provides me with the skills and tools to tackle anything with a structured approach. Furniture, art, jewellery and construction I want to do it all!

C: Tell me a story about yourself in 10 words or less.
M: A seed grew into a child, then a man flourished.

C: What do you want to be when you grow up?
M: A multifaceted individual capable of anything.

C: What three words would you use to describe your spectacles?
M: Fashionable auxiliary vision.

C: ‘My spectacles make me feel…’
M: Complete.

He's said it for us. What a smooth speculator.
