Love movies? Now you have the opportunity to carry real movie scenes wherever you go with eyeglasses that feature pieces of actual strips from vintage 16 and 35mm films . The Cinematiq Eyewear team used film from old movie theaters, TV stations and private collections to handcraft the recently launched collection featuring original footage from two films– Shogun’s shadow (1989) and Fists of the double K (1973). Zachary Tipton, founder and owner of Cinematiq eyewear and Tipton Eyeworks first experimented with inserting film into eyewear back in 2005, and decided to revisit the concept with his new Cinematiq collection set to launch this month. All film is screened before use in production, then laminated to protect the emulsion from scratches and moisture. The lamination also reinforces the film before being laser cut and riveted between two stainless steel temple halves.

Eventually, they chose scenes from two films–Shogun’s shadow (1989) and Fists of the Double K (1973)- both of which have an abundance of outdoor scenes with natural lighting making them perfect for viewing with the naked eye. + Cinematiq Eyewear

The upcycled bags seem study and quite functional for everyday use. Inhabitat recently spotted a few of their products at Designersblock during the 2016 London Design Festival . Messie Design explains how their philosophy informs their creations: “all things considered, we are also what we reject and what, more or less consciously, we lose.” + Messie Design + London Design Festival + Inhabitat coverage of London Design Festival Images via Inhabitat, Messie Design
