Komono and Ray-Ban eat your heart out, because there is a new pair of shades out that just might steal a bit of thunder from the in-demand sunglasses brands. Hungarian artist Bence Agoston has created shades that not only look cool, but that can actually simulate hallucination.
The frame and glasses, which are 3D printed, are interchangeable parts. This allows you to combine up to three different layers of lenses on the minimalistic black, metal-like frame. Each lens is based on a different Moiré pattern that filters red, green, or blue light, allowing you to create all kinds of insane technicolour palettes to freak out on.
Agoston explains: “Because each color filters the incoming lights differently, and the patterns can overlap each other or leave blank fields, the new view is completely random and twisted”
The creator also states that you don’t necessarily have to ‘trip out’ all the time, as Mood can also be used with clear lenses. For everyday living.
On where exactly his glasses come to its full right, Agoston says: “The ideal situation for use is during travel, when people listen to music, just looking out the window and watching the ever-changing sights, in perfect harmony with the music. The shape is designed with the aim of simplicity and distinctness, as if the wearer belongs to a kind of subculture.”
