I have the honor of introducing you to the new collaboration being released today! It consists of a video game launch and a pair of Limited Edition Eyeglasses. Now without any further interruption, I present to you…
Kill Screen is a videogame, art and culture magazine. Their content focuses on the intersection between games, and other seats of culture, from art, music to design. Warby Parker’s mission is to transform the optical industry, and indeed it has! By offering a Buy One and Donate the other concept.
This collab is super sexy! I mean, by the photos I have provided I know a few of you will love the style. The best-selling frame, the Burke, will be reimagined in a new hue glacier gray. The eyeglasses are crafted from premium cellulose acetate and equipped with lenses that have anti-scratch and anti-reflective coatings—which conveniently reduce the glare from screens. 100
Also, included in the bundle is a custom lens pouch with artwork featuring the Kill Screen logo cleverly deconstructed into minimalist lines and shapes inside the frame’s temple is an embossed Kill Screen logo in their signature red.
Today August, 23 for the first time ever Warby Parker has it’s own video game called Worbs. With the help of Highline Games, Warby Parker and Kill Screen designed a physics-based matching game that perfectly captures their shared love of design and entertainment. FYI, it’s very addicting and entertaining!
“The spirit of independence and innovation that we admire in games permeates Warby Parker’s approach to the design of glasses, and the Kill Screen limited-edition glasses are a wonderfully tangible representation of that spirit.”
Jamin Warren, Kill Screen CEO and Founder
“Kill Screen’s creative spirit aligns closely with our own—we both believe in beautiful design, unexpected moments, and not taking ourselves too seriously. On top of that, we love games, and they love glasses. Working with such a respected voice in the video game industry—and a company that understands the impact of incorporating art and culture into their medium—made our first foray into gaming a special one.”
Neil Blumenthal, Warby Parker co-CEO, and co-Founder
