PERSONA NON GRATA went all out on these sunglasses! They are directly inspired by architect John Lautner’s “Chemosphere” building, built in 1960 in San Fernando Valley on the Hollywood Hills!

These shades perfectly represent PNG’s style and field of interest and inspiration. In fact, PNG creates most of his designs to resemble futurism and early seventies spaceage. He then blends these creations with pure pop and revamps them with a modern contemporary twist giving them a unique importance on today’s art and design fields.

The “Chemosphere” model is a complex mathematical study on architecture for the face. These shades are a sculpture in the shape of a building, using the wearer’s nose as it’s main pedestal. The “building” hovers over the face as if anchored from the nose. The lenses are made to represent nine red window-like facades interlocked within a yellow plexiglass frame. The back “wall” of the frame is another red plexiglass sheet, standing in as closure for this impressive model.

The temples are interlocked to the frame as the “facade” windows are but in horizontal. The overall asymmetric shape of these shades adds to the complex 360 degree aesthetic the “Chemosphere” model stands for.
