Jaehyun ha, of PDF haus studio has produced a concept of a series of VR goggles under the imaginary direction of givenchy, informing their design by taking inspiration from the brand’s use of contrasting elements in terms of material, color, and product characteristics. the glasses combine virtual and augmented reality to allow users to experience and enjoy content more ‘realistically’, as opposed to browsing on a screen that is not all-consuming, say a phone or a computer or any other seemingly outdated device.
The goggles feature a padded head strap tinted lenses
The product features a VR lens which conveniently raises, allowing users to access the glasses AR capabilities. a type 2 design is also imagined, giving users a more natural design by using side arms more similar to a pair of standard glasses.
Foam padding on either side of the glasses makes the glasses comfortable to wear for long periods of time
The lenses allow users to adjust focuses when using their VR or AR functions.
Lifting the lens allows users to access the glasses AR capabilities
