neubau eyewear has released their special edition Walter & Wassily with design and material choices directly inspired by Bauhaus. The titanium frame is a reference to the bent steel tubes used in Bauhaus furniture while the round shape pays homage to the circle as one of the period's defining elements. Fade tint mirror lenses recall the facade of Walter Gropius' famous Bauhaus school building in Dessau.
The 3D-printed applications at the front of the frame interrupt the round outlines of the glasses, adding exciting detail to the model. Brass, black and shiny silver, those colours and contrasts so typical of the Bauhaus style, are represented in three different colour finishes. Walter & Wassily is a unisex pair of sunglasses from the high-end segment of the neubau eyewear range available in snow-white / black matte, black coal / eclectic silver as well as black coal / brass matte.
The frames are equipped with adjustable and easily shortened temples, a subtle logo at the end of the left temple as well as UV 400 protection.
