Eyewear can be against hate on the internet, according to Vasuma.
Together with the awarded product and interior designer and Beckmans College of Design Graduate Daniel Svahn they created three unique table lamps that will be auctioned off to benefit Diskrimineringsbyrån’s project Närvaro, an organisation that works against discrimination. The hope is to be able to bring the organisation about €3000.
Over the years Vasuma has saved a lot of their samples, spare parts and lenses. Instead of throwing it away they’ve put it into good use.
Participate in the Auction!
The table lamps are auctioned on eBay until October 7th. Participate in the auction by visiting their site here. The table lamps Båge (Frame), Lins (Lens) and Skalm (Temple) will appear.
Watch the movie!
One of my most loved times of the year is here, Silmo!
Meanwhile, I’m sharing the Bonocle favourites of the MYKITA SS14 collection:
PHILOMENE and PHILO from the MYKITA Decades collection.
The double nose bridge is an absolute Bonocle favourite and the MYKITA SS14 collection have a lot of bridges to offer:
NADA from the MYKITA collection no 2 NIILO and ELLINOR from the MYKITA LITE collection.
I think I might get either ELLINOR or PHILOMENE… or both. Fab!
Swedish eyewear brand Vasuma made alien glasses for Berättarministeriet’s Alien Supermarket. Berättarministeriet (“Ministry of Storytelling”) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspire children, aged 8-18, from areas of high unemployment to conquer the written word. Their work is based on the understanding that strong writing skills are fundamental for participation in a democratic and pluralistic society. Their work is inspired by 826 National.
“Children can play with and try out glasses that are supposed to excite the imagination and provide unprecedented writing powers!” says Vasumas Steffen Sundelius.
“The creativity in the shop will activate the imagination and encourage children to write before they go through the secret door of the writing workshop.” says the author Dilsa Demirbag-Sten who is in charge of Berättarministeriet.
The alien glasses look crazy and cool, like a tiara but on your nose. It wouldn’t surprise me if they one day can be found any regular shop!
