Titled ‘Masterpieces Never Sleep,’ this funky collection of sleeping masks by Belarusian graphic designer Lesha Limonov borrows the eyes of famous paintings from across time, including Van Gogh’s ‘self-portrait’ (1987) and Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’ (1642) to guard you during your slumber. Pulling inspiration from the idea that paintings stay awake long after museums close for the night, the project was born out of a submission to the International Rijksstudio 2017 competition, a contest that tasks designers with reinterpreting exhibited artworks within their own fields, which range from fashion and photography to the applied arts and graphic design (among other areas of expertise).

Packaged in the shape of a cardboard tube, the masks are purchasable by their respective artwork – so while you’re not getting some randomization gimmick hoping to get lucky, if you want to build a collection you’ll have to purchase each one separately. Of course, since the International Rijksstudio competition is still under way and accepting submissions, its unlikely that the items will go on sale until after the event concludes.
