Mykita has recently been awarded the prestigious Good Design Award 2010. It’s no surprise to the design community that the rising eye wear company would be bestowed such a great honor, they push boundaries with the design of their metal injection molded frames, and they open up and collaborate with wild designer such as Bernhard Willhelm and Romain Kremer.
Mykita was founded in 2003 by Harald Gottschling, Daniel Haffmans, Philipp Haffmans, and Moritz Krueger. The team of young designers developed “a highly innovative functional design comprising simple plug connections made complex soldered joints and screw connections redundant, while the frames themselves were cut out of stainless sheet steel before being folded into form. As well as being incredibly light, the latter could be adjusted to the wearer thanks to a wide variety of configuration options.”
Because of their slick and sturdy designs, Mykita skyrocketed to eye wear fame and have been seen on the shinning faces of high fashion characters and entertainers throughout the past 7 years.
