MYKITA takes an independent approach to eyewear design and production, bringing together all departments under one roof to form the Modern Manufactory. At the MYKITA HAUS in Berlin, the team guides the product through every stage, from conception to the shop floor.
The driving force at the Modern Manufactory is the collective impulse consistently to challenge the status quo. MYKITA strives to set new standards in design and manufacturing with purposeful products that combine handcraft and high technology.
The unmistakeable MYKITA aesthetic demonstrates integrity towards materials and construction, as well as the individual artistry of the craftsmen. The close relationship between design, research & development and production cultivates a commitment to quality and a spirit of innovation that is apparent in the eyewear collections.
Headed by founder Moritz Krueger, MYKITA is committed to a course at once enterprising and authentic. In addition to its own shops in cities across the globe, including Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Tokyo, MYKITA is available at selected optical and fashion stores in over 80 countries.
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 an aesthetic one.
