Frency & Mercury

The Frency & Mercury eyewear collection is the creation of 31-year-old Japanese designer Eque M.

For Eque, eyewear is more than just an accessory, it is an important element of each person’s look. The collection comprises a line of sunglasses and optical glasses inspired by the American west coast, based on research of avant-garde materials and innovative technology, while drawing on the expertise of craftsmen of Fukui in Japan.

Completely handcrafted, Frency & Mercury eyewear is made from 100 per cent titanium in all the metallic parts except for some details, which are made from 18k gold or silver 925 and seasoned Japanese acetate.

Eque M. grew up in a culture very much attached to ancient traditions and has nourished his passion for glasses from the time he was very young.

A love of detail brought Eque to a decisive moment in his development and so he moved from Japan to the West Coast of the United States, to complete his studies in Art and Design. Eque M. started to collaborate with eyewear brands in the USA like Salt, for whom he became designer and also production controller

A love of detail brought Eque to a decisive moment in his development and so he moved from Japan to the West Coast of the United States, to complete his studies in Art and Design. Eque M. started to collaborate with eyewear brands in the USA like Salt, for whom he became designer and also production controller.

His experiences in the USA inspired Eque to go back to his country, establish Frency & Mercury and create a line of sunglasses and optical glasses inspired by the west coast style.

Frency & Mercury eyewear previewed for the first time in Europe in the concept store “L’Osservatorio” in Corso di Porta Ticinese in Milan, a store for people who are passionate about alternative brands and also a place where people can discover avant-garde international design brands.
