The Penguin Sunshine is part of Swedish artist Viveka Gren's collection of one of a kind sunglasses, each piece carefully handmade with her unique artistic touch.

This piece was supposed to become a pair of Christmas sunglasses, but my creative urge wanted something else! 

 

Colours & materials: The Penguin Sunshine is based on a round frame with yellow lenses. It is adorned with a stunning crystal chain in turqouise AB and a pair of reworked earrings in shape of penguins with tiny bows. 

Curiousity: Did you know that yellow lens tints are helpful in low-light conditions because they make an environment appear brighter? Wearing yellow/amber tinted eyewear blocks blue light to help reduce eye fatigue and strain. They also enhance contrast and depth perception and are great for overcast, hazy and foggy conditions.

Size: Universal adult size

Weight: xx gr

All sunglasses are created on CE certificated bases with UV filter. This piece is based on a category 1, UV 400.

Care: The Penguin Sunshine sunglasses are an art object, and will last for many, many years if treated as such. Take care when handling. Avoid anything that can scratch the lenses, like laying them on a table with the lenses down towards the surface. To protect the mechanism of the sunglasses, one should never wear a pair of glasses on the head, like a headband. It will ineviatebly damage the mechanisms sooner or later. When removing your glasses, use both hands to grip on the sides. 

Can be wiped with glasses cleaning pads, or a damp, luke warm cloth. 

Sustainability footprint:

This piece is adorned with 50% repurposed materials (the penguins once were a pair of earrings). 

Please note that due to the settings of your phone or computer, the colours of the pictures might vary slightly.
