Pelot. Mykita.


Blog Widget by LinkWithin

Pelot is a 3D printed frame. Named after Mylon, the innovative, lightweight polyamide material created by Mykita, the sunglasses collection fuses fashion and sport. Hand crafted in Berlin, Pelot offers tate-of-the-art design coupled with a material that boasts individual adjustability, low weight, extreme durability and a unique textured finish.

The evolution of the Mykita Mylon frames began with a new production process: Selective Laser Sintering enables the creation of objects in every possible geometrical configuration. In 2007 Mykita began experimenting with the polyamide material, aiming to pioneer it in the production of eyewear. Several years of research were invested in the development of a complex, patented process in which the raw surface of the material is prepared and rendered wearable in a series of stages, giving the frames a unique visual and tactile appeal.

Pelot is available for both optical lenses and sunglasses. All sunglasses are fitted with Zeiss, which provide maximum glare control plus 400UV protection. An exclusive golden anti-reflective coating ensures that unwelcome reflections are reduced to a minimum. A scratch-resistant and hydrophobic nano-coating immediately makes any drops of water bead up and roll off the lenses, thus simplifying the cleaning process while ensuring maximum visual comfort. Zeiss and Mykita have also developed two lenses specifically for golfers that are color-optimized to increase the contrast on the green. Most Mykita Mylon frames can alternatively be ordered with polarising lenses that absorb reflections e.g. on the piste, in watersports or while driving your car. The frames are also available for optical lenses.
