Made of lightweight stainless steel, MONTY in B8 Basalt/Neon Orange is a square-shaped optical frame from the MYKITA NO1 collection. These frames are handcrafted in Berlin.
Collection NO1 laid the foundation for MYKITA. Fashioned from stainless steel sheets, the frames are made into a three-dimensional structure through a series of bending and folding steps, similar to the Japanese art of origami. The modern principle behind the openly displayed spiral hinge represents the design approach that has informed all subsequent MYKITA collections: the technical solution must also be an aesthetic one.
MYKITA stainless steel frames are cut out of sheet metal and, in similar style to the Japanese principle of origami, then bent and folded to become a three-dimensional object. The openly displayed snap-hinge system contains no screws, making these frames incredibly light and comfortable.
