MYKITA products are made in a meticulous step-by-step manufacturing process that combines precision craftsmanship with new technologies. What does that actually entail? A short film tells the tale in a way that the layman can follow.
The making of a MYKITA acetate frame: WYNONA
THE MAKING OF A MYKITA ACETATE FRAME: WYNONA offers a quick but instructive look at the production process at MYKITA HAUS. It is one of four short films illustrating the development process of the handcrafted glasses from this Berlin manufactory. In the analogue film, shot using 16mm, the model WYNONA is followed by a camera on its transformative journey from raw material to a finished product presented on a shop-shelf.
The film was directed by Zack Spiger, a film director and cinematographer living between Paris and New York. The soundtrack comes courtesy of Chilly Gonzales, a Canadian jazz pianist and long-time resident of MYKITA’s beloved Berlin.
With design and production under the one MYKITA HAUS roof, form and function are given equal attention at the Berlin manufactory. The shades are made to protect and make a statement at the same time.
The NO2 SUN collection is made from acetate, a material composed of cotton and coloured pigments. The frames all feature an innovative hinge technology, which makes the variety of classic and contemporary shapes possible. The glasses all present a distinctive character of their own, but what they do share are the certified precision lenses from the Carl Zeiss brand, ensuring protection from harmful rays and optimal visibility.
