In a classy, quaint courtyard just off Copenhagen's main pedestrian street, the discerning eye notices a small, discreet shop offering a remarkable service.
Together the couple unite their distinctive personalities to create functional art that rests on the faces of people from all corners of the world.

This is "slow optics" and gives you the opportunity to become the best version of yourself with a pair of one-of-a-kind glasses that compliment your individuality.
