Focus Shades
by Oli Wallace

The nature experience was a stark contrast to the regular routine of the average week. It allowed me the space to think about what was important around me whilst refocusing the scope of how I saw myself at that moment in time. I wanted to create a response that mirrored this feeling for others so I designed the 'Focus Shades' as a way to deliver a small sample of the nature experience. By simply removing a simple distraction, the average mobile phone, the user has to refocus to their surroundings and live a little more in the moment.
“The more hi tech our lives become, the more nature we need… The challenge is to live... using computers to maximize our powers to process intellectual data, and natural environments to ignite all of our senses…”
