SUNLIGHT GLASSES
Exhibited @Gwangju Design Biennale 2021
‘SunLight’ is a pair of eye-glasses able to protect from the sun in the day while lighting you up as a star in the night.
The concept merge together two opposite literal interpretations of the ambiguous term “sun-glasses”, creating an eyewear equipped with dark lenses which block sunlight (= “anti-sun glasses”), and LEDs which, instead, produce light in the dark (=“pro-sun glasses”).
SunLight are digitally fabricated and totally customizable:
laser-cut acrylic sheets are jointed with an elastic rope that let adjusting the fitting size while securing them even in extreme dancing-partying situations. Battery and microcontroller are hidden on the sides, whilst the electric wires become a graphic decoration inside the transparent layers. Finally, the LEDs games are customizable with Arduino so that everyone can find their own personal rhythm for shining.
