JINS Architect’s Series

architect_glasses

My post last week on Kengo Kuma’s line of jewelry led me to another interesting revelation. Japanese eye wear maker JINS has embarked on an ambitious new project called Collabaganza. Actually, that’s just what I would call it. Truthfully speaking it’s called Architect’s Series and it’s a project in which 12 notable architects were commissioned to design their own interpretation of eyewear. The only thing more impressive than the lineup of architects are the pieces themselves. Although I don’t wear glasses I’m kind of wishing I did!

Participating architects:
Jun Aoki
Junya Ishigami (Remember KAIT Kobo?)
Toyo Ito (Remember Za Koenji?)
Kumiko Inui
Kengo Kuma & Mayumi Ohmura
Kazuyo Sejima (Remember Serpentine Pavillion 2009?)
Hiroshi Nakamura (Remember Garden on a Roof & Dancing Trees, Singing Birds?)
Yuko Nagayama
Ryue Nishizawa
Sou Fujimoto
Fujimori Terunobu (Remember Takasugian Tea House?)
