Invention, design, fashion
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. The brand is targeting a global audience and was launched in September 2009 at the annual trade fair SILMO in Paris. Monoqool was established in 2008 by two Danes with a vision of bringing new technology, design and fashion into the modern eyeglass industry. The mission was to use the best from the two worlds: To combine Japanese craftsmanship and technology with Danish design and an innovative mindset. 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, where the theme of the annual branch gathering 2009 was “innovation”.
With the spiral hinge in the Helix, the company has not only got itself a significant and visible signature but also presented the industry with a major new invention. The spiral is a patented invention, which changes the whole concept of the eyeglass hinge. HELIX is designed by the Danish design duo, Tools Design, who won more than 200 international design awards and distinctions.
All products are being exclusively produced in Sabae in Fukui Prefecture in Western Japan. Japan is a world leader in the eyeglass industry, and Sabae is one of the largest manufacturing centers of eyeglass frames in Japan building on a sophisticated and highly skilled base of small specialized manufacturers. The product line Twins is based on advanced technical features as well. A two layer frame build in exact angles leaves a 3D impression in various colors and textures. This line is designed by Danish designer Karina Mencke.
