INNOVATIVE MONOQOOL is a new Danish high end eyewear brand. Designed in Denmark and manufactured in Japan.
Monoqool - innovation, design, fashion Client: Monoqool Date: September 15, 2009 Monoqool was born global. The company is based on Japanese technology and Danish design. It was created in Japan and Denmark by people with a lifetime of experience doing business in both countries. Targeting a global audience, the brand was launched in September 2009 at the annual trade fair SILMO in Paris. Monoqool was established in 2008 north of Copenhagen by two Danes with a vision of bringing new technology, design and fashion into the modern eyewear industry. The mission was to use the best from the two worlds: To combine Danish design and an innovative mindset with Japanese craftsmanship and technology The innovative foundation was to create something new and spectacular. The result was two new concepts: A new signature hinge and a line of designed and fashionable eyeglasses with a three- dimensional effect. These two first product-lines Helix and Twins were presented at SILMO 2009, where the theme was innovation. With the spiral hinge in Helix, the company has not only achieved a significant and visible signature but also presented the industry with a major new invention. The spiral is a patented innovation, which challenges the whole concept of the eyeglass hinge. HELIX is designed by the Danish design duo, Tools Design, who have won more than 200 international design awards and distinctions. The product line Twins is based on advanced technical features. A two-layer frame with exact angles gives a 3-D impression invarious colors and textures. This line is designed by the Danish designer, Karina Mencke. All products are being exclusively produced in Sabae in Fukui Prefecture in Western Japan. Japan is a world leader in the eyewear industry, and Sabae is the largest manufacturing center of eyewear in Japan building on a sophisticated and highly skilled base of especially small specialized manufacturers.
