Yami eyewear is the bold brainchild of Swedish designers Marc Zacharoff and Viktor Ekelund. Identifying their own sense of style and quality as a fusion of contradictions, they found their aesthetic center of gravity at the minimalist intersection of Scandinavian and Japanese design. Thus, their designs blend rustic modernity with sophisticated simplicity, modest arrogance with rebellious discipline. It’s no coincidence that the word yami is Japanese for darkness.
Conceived in Sweden, born in Japan, Yami eyewear is a product of visionary ideas and down-to-earth professionalism. Each pair is crafted from the finest materials, fashioned and assembled by hand in Sabae, by some of the most skilled eyewear manufacturers in the world.
Their Sabae manufacturers combine deep-rooted traditional Japanese frame-making art with advanced technology and the typical Japanese work ethic known as monozukuri. Their professional pride and perfectionism define each step of the process, from cutting and crafting to polishing the final product. The Japanese city of Sabae has a 1500-year history of artisanal skill and pride. A pair of limited-edition Yami sunglasses is a product of unrivalled quality and unique personality. Strong, lightweight and timeless eyewear that will protect you from bright light and dull design.
