Art is a huge source of inspiration for Masahiro Maruyama. The concept is “unfinished art ––finding beauty in the incomplete”. Whereas classical frame designs are symmetrical and beautifully completed, Masahiro’s asymmetric frames are “unfinished”, creating evocative, eccentric designs. Like having a piece of art, Masahiromaruyama frames are not just for daily use or a fashion statement, but as well as for their own sake.
Finding beauty in the incomplete
Doodles are random, fun, and sometimes enigmatic lines. They are composed as if the lines are scribbled directly on someone’s face. Each stroke is created by the unconscious mind and they come together into a solid design.
MM-0044 comes with two interchangeable nose bridges which are shaped as if those lines are drawn to connect the inside end of left eyebrow and the outer corner of right eye.
