An exploration of modern materials

Modern materials are created for the purpose of boosting us in terms of outlook, sporting performance and everyday life. Modern materials are adapted to human necessities. They combine seemingly contrary elements to form a new material. Finest powder, fused into a three-dimensional shape. Robust and at the same time a snug, contour-hugging fit. With with an organic look on the surface. But down to the last fibre a high-tech product.

THE PRODUCTION PROCESS

The evolution of the MYKITA MYLON frames began with a new production process: Selective Laser Sintering enables the creation of objects in every possible geometrical configuration. Layer by layer a super-fine polyamide powder is turned via CO2 laser sintering into three-dimensional objects that are fed in beforehand in data form. In 2007 MYKITA began experimenting with the polyamide material, aiming to pioneer it in the production of eyewear. Several years of research were invested in the development of a complex, patented process in which the raw surface of the material is prepared and rendered wearable in a series of stages, giving the frames a unique visual and tactile appeal.

THE GLASS OPTIONS

MYKITA MYLON glasses are available both as optical and sunglasses fitted with lenses from optical specialist Zeiss. The tinted lenses provide maximum glare control plus 100% protection against UV rays. An exclusive golden anti-reflective coating ensures that unwelcome reflections are reduced to a minimum. A scratch-resistant and hydrophobic nano-coating immediately makes any drops of water bead up and roll off the lenses, thus simplifying the cleaning process while ensuring maximum visual comfort. A range of lens options are available to cater to the individual viewing needs of prescription glasses wearers. MYKITA MYLON sunframes can alternatively be ordered with polarising lenses that absorb reflections e.g. on the piste, in watersports or while driving your car.
