About the product
The origin of this product is radiation protection glasses used in the medical field. Performance has been updated by combining know-how and design features developed in the medical field, while eliminating unnecessary radiation protection equipment in everyday life. Super sunglasses with four features have been completed. They are manufactured by craftsmen in Fukui Prefecture, a famous production centre for eyewear.
(1) With durable protectors to protect the eyes from rain, wind, dust, insects, and droplets.
The protective power of the original medical protective eyewear, redesigned into cool sunglasses!
Protectors covering the top, bottom, left and right sides of the front part protect your eyes from various accidents. The super polyamide-based material is scratch-resistant, heat-resistant, lightweight, and resilient. Decorated with a granite-like texture and a camouflage pattern, which has never been seen before on radiation protection glasses, it is as cool as it is functional.
(2) High-performance sunglass lenses made in Japan.
Even with darker lens colours, they appear brighter and control disturbing light. Furthermore, we have focused on high-quality lenses that are free from turbidity and distortion. We use products from Japanese high-spec lens manufacturer Inui Lens Co., Ltd.
-Clear sunglass lens: transparent but cut more than 99% of UV rays. Can be used by those who do not like the dark, or during yellow dust and haze.
-Gradient lens: filters out blue light and UV light, which are easily perceived as glaring. Thin gradient that allows the eyes to see through. All-day 'all-time' sunglasses for all-day use, made possible by Inui Lens' patented (in Japan) technology.
-Polarising lens Grey: A lens that not only blocks UV rays, but also conditions the variously scattered light present in everyday life and delivers it to the eye. The moment you put them on, you will experience a reduction in the strain on your eyes. The lenses have a WUV-cut function as standard to protect the eyes from UV rays that enter not only from the front but also from behind and from the sides.
(3) No slipping off!
Glasses that are usually supported at four points, such as the nose and ears, may tend to slip down due to their structure. These spectacles are equipped with pads on the temples, which support the nose, ears, and temples at six points, thus dispersing and reducing pressure on the nose and ears, while drastically reducing the frustration of spectacles that slip off. The brand's product with the same structure has been well received by spectacle fans, who say, "It doesn't slip off even when I do backflips!" and are well received by spectacle fans.
(4) Less likely to hurt!
Because the glasses were originally designed for medical use, where they were required to be worn for long hours, we paid particular attention to their comfort. Slits in the temple of the spectacles increase elasticity and improve the sense of hold. For the earpieces, we used material with a characteristic rubber-like feel and anti-slip properties. The U-shaped structure in the middle of the temple supports only the part of the temporal area around the ear that is really necessary, so no pressure digs into the face.
For driving, skiing, trips to the pool or sea, cycling, running, and other sports. Also for protection against unexpected foreign objects when gardening, DIY, or caring for the elderly... These sunglasses will serve you anywhere, anytime!

About the maker
We, Sugimoto Design Studio, were founded in 2003 as a design office for glasses. Today, we are involved in the planning and production of many brand-name spectacles and OEM, etc. In 2014, we launched our original spectacle brand 'design 88' intending to create glasses that defy preconceived notions. In recent years, the company has not limited itself to glasses, but also produces face shields and accessories.
These high-spec sunglasses were created in Fukui Prefecture, which is famous for its glasses production in Japan. We hope they will play a major role in the lives of everyone overseas.
