Agate is a microcrystalline variety of silica, chiefly chalcedony, characterised by its fineness of grain and brightness of color.
A slice of Agate, given to me as a holiday souvenir by Moco, inspired me to create a series of sunglasses. Maria Knabe helped me to find the right method to do it, eventually just one really nice guy from a company called Günther Schleiftechnik could make it. Later on the fashion designer Marie Lüder stepped into the project and we created a series of portraits. One of the shots was selected as the key visual of the HAW Hamburg fashion show 2013, then a Hamburg wide posting was launched.
Below you will find examples of printed material, the graphic design was done by Mathias Specht & Tobias Weber.
