Certain shades of blue can evoke a cool, reflective mood. The colour has inspired and preoccupied innovative artists such as Joni Mitchell and Pablo Picasso. Indigo, specifically, is regarded as the colour of intuition, perception and the higher mind. Blues are powerful, dignified and integral to heightening the powers of perception.
The French conceptual artist Yves Klein developed his own shade of blue in observance of the Nouveau Realisme movement’s manifesto which encouraged the production of work inspiring a “new way of perceiving the real”.
It is only fitting that optical devices suited to enhancing ones vision should incorporate a colour believed to effect perception! Some frames crafted by Claire Goldsmith and Anne et Valentin are produced in an intense ‘Indigo’.
The deep, dramatic laser etched finish of l.a. Eyeworks‘ Flying Wallendas model is accentuated by its presentation in ‘Liquid Navy’ as depicted below.
