M-Mod Specs is a pair of modular spectacles with interchangeable frame fronts. Fitted with a variety of shapes and shades, M-Mod’s funky frame fronts snap easily onto the frame body. Frame fronts act as visual filters, adding swatches of colour and texture to each look.
Addressing Singaplural 2016’s theme of ‘Senses’, M-Mod Specs is a play on our sense of sight by altering our visual perception of reality. Rose-tinted glasses are no longer sufficient for us citizens of the 21st century. We swipe, swipe and swipe, to switch the swatches of our image filters. More is merry. The snap-on-snap-off nature of M-Mod allows for a larger eyewear collection without having repeated parts that essentially mean repeated waste. Environmental consciousness aside, M-Mod Specs also explores eyewear as visual non-aids. No sharper vision or UV protection here. Completely impractical, M-Mod Specs are pure fun and silliness. Every day is a costume party with a pair of M-Mod’s.
