The Art of Minimalism: A Guide to Japanese Design Principles
Japan is known for its impeccable sense of design and architecture, and it’s no surprise that many high-end eyewear brands take inspiration from the country's unique aesthetic. At Sense Eyewear, we believe that eyewear is more than just a functional item - it’s an expression of personal style and a reflection of one’s individuality. That’s why we offer a wide range of frames from Japanese brands such as Japonism and Kaneko Optical, both of which incorporate traditional Japanese design elements into their frames.
Japanese design is characterized by its minimalism, simplicity, and attention to detail. This is reflected in Japonism’s frames, which feature clean lines and understated elegance. Many of their frames also incorporate traditional Japanese motifs such as cherry blossoms and koi fish. Kaneko Optical, on the other hand, is known for its use of innovative materials such as titanium and carbon fiber, which are both lightweight and durable.
In addition to eyewear, Japanese architecture also plays a role in the design of our store. Our Vancouver location features a minimalist and modern interior with clean lines, inspired by the sleek and sophisticated aesthetic of Japanese architecture.
At Sense Eyewear, we believe that eyewear is an art form, and we are proud to offer frames that are not only functional but also beautifully designed. Whether you’re looking for glasses or sunglasses, prescription or contact lenses, our Japanese-inspired frames are sure to elevate your personal style.
