ABOUT THE MIKRO
Inspired by the expressive stroke of a calligrapher’s brush, Mikro began as a testament to the minimalist artistry of Zen Buddhism. The frame’s graceful acetate casing embraces the concept of enso, a hand-drawn circle comprised of a single, decisive brushstroke. To practitioners of Zen calligraphy, enso is a fascinating expression of individuality: the form can be achieved only when the artist’s mind is completely free to let the body create, and the nuances associated with such inspired movement represent the perfection found in imperfection. Mikro’s own gently curved structure and open architecture represent the hope and promise of an incomplete circle – a Buddhist symbol for harmony and regeneration. Though Mikro sets forth with an uninhibited footprint, the technical specifications that make it possible are a testament to optical innovation. The frame’s open circle concept is the product of a slender titanium skeleton, which is encased in acetate gracefully sculpted acetate; this powerful interior architecture enables a host of carefully considered details, including a hidden rim lock and customized titanium nose pads.
