- JINS Continues to Work in Collaboration with the World’s Top Designers
The newly initiated JINS Design Project is an effort to create glasses that hold value and relevance in the future through means of reconsidering eyewear design from its very essence and reconstructing them from their shape and materials. The first installment of the project welcomes Jasper Morrison, recognized as one of the most influential product designers in the world, with a reputation for producing works that harbor a basic yet universal appeal. Through this project, JINS plans to continually release products in collaboration with the world’s leading designers.
- The First Installment Collaborates with Jasper Morrison on His First Eyewear Collection
Morrison, who works across a variety of fields spanning from furniture to tableware, household appliances and stationery, and providing designs for bus stops and trams, has received high acclaim for creating products that blend into daily life and for realizing designs that continue to be cherished and appreciated over time. Morrison’s attitude of exploring and considering designs that are both basic and become presences that better accommodate those who use them had resonated with JINS’ ideology to “Create new standards,” and thus resulted in realizing this collaboration. Although Morrison himself wears eyeglasses on a daily basis, this project marks his first ever engagement in eyewear design.
