MYKITA MYLON blurs the border between fashion and sports. State-of-the-art design coupled with a material that boasts individual adjustability, low weight and extreme durability make these spectacles both an outstanding sporting companion and a perfect everyday accessory. The manufacturing process for MYLON has won MYKITA recognition in the form of the iF material award.The collection was honoured with the Red Dot design award in the field of product design.
The evolution of the MYKITA MYLON frames began with a new production process: Selective Laser Sintering enables the creation of objects in every possible geometrical configuration. Layer by layer a super-fine polyamide powder is turned via CO2 laser sintering into three-dimensional objects that are fed in before hand in data form.
In 2007 MYKITA began experimenting with the polyamide material, aiming to pioneer it in the production of eyewear. Several years of research were invested in the development of a complex, patented process in which the raw surface of the material is prepared and rendered wearable in a series of stages, giving the frames a unique visual and tactile appeal.
