It is difficult to mend a piece of broken glass. But it is more difficult to break a piece of glass the exact same way.
The Masahiro Maruyama: Broken Series may look like an ordinary pair of glasses from far, but if you take a closer look, the glasses are not symmetrical – yet every pair is presented asymmetrical in the same pattern.
It is easy to break a pair of glasses, but to break it the same way for every piece, pushes the skills of the craftsmen to their limits. This piece of eyewear demonstrates a classic example of perfecting the imperfection.
One of our favourite frame collections, the Masahiro Maruyama: Broken Series goes beyond being a functional pair of glasses, showcasing a fine combination of artwork and technicality.
