SKANS receives the Opti Box Award 2024

At The International Eyewear Exhibition OPTI in Munich the 13th of January 2024, SKANS was awarded THE OPTI BOX AWARD - The Design Innovation Award for New Eyewear Brands of the Year!

We're deeply humbled and grateful for this prestigious recognition. The jury's words shed light on our efforts:

"The innovative brand SKANS captured the expert panel's hearts with its commitment to sustainability. By integrating recycled metal into their production process without compromising functionality, SKANS also pledges 2% of its revenue to support environmental and social initiatives."

The jury's detailed feedback was:


This year’s opti BOX AWARD winner combines classic with a new idea – which is: using recycled metal time and again for the production of spectacle frames.


Make it simple but significant:  Steve Jobs said, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

These designs are timeless, eliminating any extra steps or features which are unnecessary.


The winners’ glasses have a proven functionality which fits perfectly to the classic concept.


The winner not only convinces with the use of recycled metal. They also pledge 2% of their sales to environmental and social initiatives. And they are a proud member of 1% for the planet organization.

The jury's recognition has truly touched us.
We extend our biggest gratitude to the international jury, the Opti management team, our suppliers, customers, supporters and last but not least our family for their steadfast support.

Together, we're on a mission to make a difference, one pair of frames at a time!
