THE CLEAR DESIGN LANGUAGE AT MYKITA COMES FROM AN HONEST AND UNCOMPROMISING APPROACH TO MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION. FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR DESIGN AND PRODUCTION PHILOSOPHY.
The clear design language at MYKITA starts with material integrity, emphasising the most appealing properties of the materials we work with. Our product design is straightforward – seeing how something is built has become the most recognisable feature of MYKITA frames. The first collection featured an openly displayed spiral hinge, a mechanical solution that became an incidental styling element and a hallmark of MYKITA frames. This original patented hinge represents the guiding principle for design at MYKITA: the technical solution must also be aesthetic.
With a focus on challenging norms and creating new aesthetic impulses within eyewear, MYKITA pushes visible logos and conventional luxury codes into the background. Instead, significant research and development goes into advancing our constructions, materials and surfaces, which all contribute to the characteristic modernity of our frames. This extensive catalogue of design ingredients enables the variety of styles in the collections, as well as the refined colour and surface compositions that set MYKITA glasses apart.
The MYKITA design team is a heterogenic group of product designers and technical engineers. This mix of people with experience in eyewear as well as designers and experts from other fields stimulates an interdisciplinary dialogue that provokes new perspectives on eyewear. Working predominately with prototypes, the team develops the product in a hands-on process centred on the wearer: every element of each eyewear model has been considered and thought-out down to the smallest detail.
