For my History of Design course, I was challenged to select a contemporary product and reinterpret it through the lens of a designer from another era. I chose to research the famous Swiss Bauhaus designer (and rebel), Joannes Itten, with modern eyeglasses as my product.
Because he is famous for developing the modern color wheel, perhaps Itten could have been a designer of mood-altering prism glasses. Spiritual or relaxation experiences would be encouraged via filters that correspond with the individual’s subjective timbre. I envision these glasses as a particularly useful product for artists and designers in the lives of whom color theory plays a critical role, as well as the everyday consumer who desires controlled color mood experiences.
