The world appears to us as we see it. So, it is all the more surprising when an object suddenly changes before our eyes, challenging the way we normally see things. Inspired by optical illusions, Silhouette has created a new pair of glasses with a minimalist, modern look. The Austrian brand is launching its Purist Collection, featuring specially designed frames that change depending on how you look at them. It is the latest groundbreaking design from Silhouette, the world leader in premium rimless eyewear.
A harmonious interplay of gentle lines
These glasses create a stunning effect when viewed from the side due to the fine, clean, and dynamic line that runs from the front to the ends of the temples. And when viewed from above, the design changes to create an exciting, playful effect as the concave and convex surfaces work together to form a harmonious whole. Roland Keplinger, Design Director at Silhouette, explains the secret behind the design: “The core idea behind the Purist frames is the way the minimalist line transitions into a precisely crafted, flowing form whenever you view them from different angles.” This new creation from Silhouette is aimed at the sophisticated wearer who appreciates aesthetics and design. Despite its simplicity, there is much to discover in the details of the Purist model. For example, the integrated hinge with a matte or translucent design element creates a particularly slim and elegant look.
Yet the Purist model is not pared back in every respect. When it comes to color and shape, the choices are endless. Vigorous Berry and Courageous White are some of the bold color options which can be combined with the striking contoured butterfly shape for women and a distinctive hexagon shape for men.
