Vinylize is a Budapest based design company that manufactures eyewear using materials repurposed from vinyl records. The Vinylize 20th Century Icons Remastered collection celebrates the anniversary of unforgettable albums ranging from 25 to 60 years years of age. On March 15 1976 Kiss released their Destroyer album. 40 years later Vinylize has taken that same piece of vinyl and crafted it into an unforgettable set of sunglasses as a tribute to one of the most iconic bands of the 70’s. Destroyer was Kiss’s first album to achieve platinum status and included such tracks as Beth or Shout It Out Loud. This eyewear is perfect for Kiss fans and lovers of luxury eyewear alike. The inside of the eyewear box is adorned with a sleeve from the original vinyl. The sunglasses and case are perfectly framed by the remains of the Destroyer record. The frame is ejected by pressing the label which has been laser cut to hide a catapult mechanism. On the front of the frame 3 tracks can be seen: Detroit Rock City, King of the Night Time world and God of Thunder. + Vinylize The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
