Pixelglasses – Jens Dyvik

Using the same principle as the shutter shades, the designer revamped the shades using ‘pixels’ to further reduce the amount of sun rays exposed to wearer’s eye. The geometric shape of a pixel and ability to tessellate results in more coverage.

Via a parametric definition, the outline of glasses is defined by a vector line, size of pixels (material thickness), length, width of the glasses and opacity of the hollow pixels can also be varied. All it takes is just some laser cutting for your Pixelglasses!
