Piet Mondrian and Neo-plasticism Inspire RayBan’s New Colour-Block Wayfarer


Take an iconic style and mix in some artistic Dutch flare and you get the Piet Mondiran inspired RayBan Wayfarer.

Mondrian evolved his form of art to consist of white background, upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colours.

RayBan has followed suit and incorporated Mondrian’s use of colour and shapes in their exclusive Colour-Block Wayfarer. With hues of blue, red, yellow & orange, the patterns look absolutely stunning in the sunlight.

Ray Ban is available at all Henry Smith & Hamylton Practices.

Google X reported in The Times Paper and throughout the internet this week

Rumour, and at present that is all that can be said that by the end of this year our smart display seen on Android phones will soon be backlit on special spectacles being prepared by Google. It is believed to be planning this new mobile device, a pair of glasses that will relay all the information of a phone straight to your eyes.

Reports from many gismo internet sites suggest that Google will release the high-tech spectacles by the end of the year. The normal lenses will have screens that sit a few centimetres from a user’s eyes. 
The New York Times has suggested that the mobile glasses will cost between $250 and $600 (£160-£380).

Google declined to comment.

Though the concept sounds outlandish, it is known that the company has created a grand new project dubbed “Google X” at its campus in Mountain View, California.
