What is “sowell design office”?
In Sabae City, Fukui Prefecture, the city that produces more than 90% of eyeglasses made in Japan, we—with a focus on eyewear design—plan products related to eyewear, make designs for eyewear type wearable devices, and plan designs for other products. In particular, titanium processing technology and the materials used in eyeglasses manufacturing technology are not well recognized in different industries, so we propose to introduce them to make things that could not have been realized until now.
