Well. It took 17 years, but we finally have a line of our namesake frames. What took us so long? In our defense, materials and technologies of the past simply weren’t able to create the the type of beveled edge found in this line. But today, we’re happy to introduce a frame which speaks to all that our brand stands for--sleek, modern, minimalist design aesthetics . The frames come in two thicknesses. The 2mm frame suits more conservative looks, while the 3mm offers a bolder, more definitive appeal.

Fukui, Japan is one of the three largest production regions for optical frames in the world, along with China and Italy. 97% of Japanese-made optical frames are manufactured in Fukui.Masunaga Optical premiered the production of eyeglasses in Fukui in 1905. The company founder Gozaemon Masunaga brought in skilled craftsmen from Osaka and Tokyo with the ambition of setting the optical industry solidly in place in Fukui.He entered into the industry the hard way, and at first the eyeglasses manufactured in Fukui were regarded to be third-rate in the world. In order to raise the quality standards of the products, Gozaemon established a guild like system where full-fledged craftsmen could create their own businesses. Owing to this system, the number of eyeglass craftsmen increased gradually, and the optical industry spread all over Fukui.
There are as many as 200 manual processes involved in making an optical frame. Generally, productivity is low when one company is in charge of all the processes. However, Masunaga Optical is the only company in Japan that has a factory in charge of all processes from raw materials to production and finish in an integrated way. The integrated production system improves the detail and quality. For example, when Masunaga Optical develops a new model, the molds are always built in-house. If there is a problem in the wear comfort that can be felt only after completing one pair of glasses, it will be corrected in the previous process’ promptly.
The company’s mission statement since the establishment is “We manufacture excellent eyeglasses. We want to make a profit if we can, but we don’t hesitate to take a loss. It is always in our thoughts to manufacture excellent eyeglasses.” These words are still the basis of the conduct code of employees even more than 100 years after its establishment.

Clean Danish design is the basis of our products but we always add a twist of something surprising – something unexpected. We aim to balance classic and clean with bold and bright to continuously keep classic styles updated. The most important thing is always to create eyewear that dresses the face. The frame and the face must interact to obtain a beautiful and harmonic look. We never strive for creating a design object that demands all the attention but rather a piece of eyewear that completes and enhances the lines of the face
Like other Danish eyewear designers ProDesign works a lot with powerful effects and is fascinated by the way the right detail can completely change the look of a frame. To pick a certain effect, appoint it your characteristic feature and make it as powerful as possible without overdoing it. This can be a challenge when you also want to preserve the clean and simple lines of Danish Design. This is however what it is all about – challenging our creativity to create a perfect frame every time.

Our family has been in the optical business for over 40 years. Since our inception we’ve worked with thousands of children who need glasses. We’ve carefully listened to the wants and needs of children of all ages and designed SPIN to serve the niche market of kid’s eyewear. In the past, kid’s eyewear was bulky and had a “safety glasses” look to it. Not anymore.
SPIN was conceived so kids will feel their glasses are an exciting and expressive part of their life. “Happy Kids” is our philosophy and goal every day we come to work. Kids are happy wearing these frames because they’re comfortable, and when you’re comfortable you’re happy!
We love to connect with our customers! Get in touch with us and share your questions, comments, or suggestions.
