Eyewear that embodies "Subtractive Aesthetics"
Based on the unique Japanese ideology of "subtractive aesthetics," these frames are designed with simple, delicate curves that blend naturally with the contours of the face. These curves are not only beautiful, but also functional, and provide a sense of comfort when worn. It's a perfect fusion of traditional Japanese aesthetics and modern technology.
Minimal, integrated nose pads
The unique shape of the nose pads evoke the movement of a brush. Not only do they look beautiful, but also function to increase the range of motion and ensure comfort.
A unique design that evokes harmony
The thickness of the glasses rims have been specifically designed to make the entire frame look like a single, continuous line.
Engraved by Sabae craftsmen
The textured engravings on the temple tips show the handiwork of Sabae craftsmen—a detail that can’t be achieved by machines.
