Ergonomic eyewear design, “Kazuo Kawasaki”
It is a brand that faithfully embodies the design of Kazuo Kawasaki with the technical strength of Masunaga Glasses. Based on the concept of “smart & high technology,” the functionality and presence are expressed with the minimum number of parts. The main material is titanium, which is lightweight and friendly to the human body, and seeks the next generation of glasses that are truly required. The resonance of design and technology opens up a new world.
