Constantly inspired by the stirring tales and legends surrounding history’s greatest visionaries, Akoni’s collections aim to channel the spirit of the finest in the design, art and beauty that surround all of us.
Every Akoni frame holds a myriad of distinctive and intricate details. Tactile knurlings on temple fronts echo crowns of luxury watches and flint wheels of high-end lighters. Titanium tips set at rounded acetate temples replicate detailing found on the world’s finest writing instruments.
Akoni frames avoid unnecessary logos and monograms—allowing the eye to focus instead on our sleek silhouettes and the many references to the type of finely crafted details traditionally associated with the world’s finest luxury accessories. The one small refinement that does stands out: an intriguing graphic symbol of a perfect circle encased within a square. Gracing the top of Akoni’s secure rivets, this sleekly minimal geometrical motif deftly encapsulates our designers’ devotion to the fascinating and timeless power of the golden ratio.
Akoni customers deserve the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they can rely on their frames all day, every day. Working closely with our Japanese artisan partners, Akoni’s designers have devised an innovative system of hinges and screws, interchangeable across the entire Akoni catalogue. The brand’s distinctive threaded-tube screw system allows Akoni frame owners to avoid one of the most common and frustrating reasons for a visit to a repairman—a loose or missing screw.
