Providing you with a supreme collection of top-quality designer eyewear is what we strive for each and every day, and once in a while we hear some great news reaffirming the choices in our selection for you. Vizio Optic would like to congratulate MYKITA on recently winning four design awards from high-profile international organizations for their incredible technology and innovation in the eyewear industry.
The German Design Council has awarded the MYKITA Lite collection with the 2013 German Design Award, given to the brand for its excellence in product design. Frames from the Lite range are constructed with just three pieces – the front rim, and two arms with interlocking pieces that create snap-on hinges on each side.
One particular frame was singled out from the Lite collection for its own accolade – MYKITA Sigur eyeglasses – earning the International Design Award for the top Accessory. Sigur features a slim metal rim in black surrounding perfectly circular lenses, separated by an arched bridge in complementary silver. It is also available in warm gray with gold accents and neon pink with silver accents.
From the MYLON concept collection, MYKITA Basky eyeglasses earned the brand its sixth red dot design award for outstanding product design, with its rounded silhouette and vintage-inspired look. The collection itself was also recognized for its superior style with a top 10 nomination for the 2013 Industriepreis. Basky is offered in Vinaccia Red (above), British Racing Green, Imperial Purple, Ocean Blue, Peat Brown and Pitch Black.
Last, but not least, a celebration of history was awarded with the 2013 iF Design Award for Corporate Communication. MYKITA’s Eight book commemorating the first eight years of the brand’s existence “sheds a little more light on what goes on behind the scenes at MYKITA and gives a voice to a variety of artists, customers and friends and their views on the brand,” its website says.
We are so proud of our friends at MYKITA and congratulate them on all their hard work and devotion towards bringing high-quality frames to YOU!
Now you tell us, which brand would you award for its excellence in the eyewear industry?
