A constant search for innovation, the visionary use of materials, and a wealth of experience in eyewear design are the defining elements behind MYKITA’s collections.
MYKITA was founded in 2003 by Moritz Krueger, Philipp Haffmans, Daniel Haffmans and Harald Gottschling. All of its products are hand-assembled in their manufactory in Berlin Mitte.
In 2004 MYKITA launched its first metal-frame collection, Collection No1. The frames for this range are made from stainless steel and feature a patented hingeless design, with no screws or welded joints. Collection No2 launched soon afterwards comprising acetate frames and includes both prescription models and sunglasses.
The Lite, Decades and Luxe lines were then also added to the product range. The Lite collection incorporates MYKITA’s lightest models, which have an ultra-thin frame comprising of just three parts. The Decades collection is based on spectacles forms from various eras of the 20th century. Luxe has an emphasis on naturally sourced materials.
According to the manufacturer, MYLON provides a wide range of design options thanks to its lightness; in addition, the material’s thermal adaptability means the frames are fully adjustable. The first MYLON collection was premiered at the Silmo Eyewear Fair in September 2011.
