Kilsgaard Eyewear embodies simplicity. The idea is to create a contemporary, elegant design that both compliments and reinforces the style of the wearer. We look ahead of the trends – watch how they evolve – but stay grounded in the classic designs that have outlasted decades.
We’re not here to revolutionise the world of eyewear. We’re here to re-introduce, in our own package, what’s proven to work: minimalist aluminium and fine Japanese handmade acetate. Good design has the strength to be simple. That’s why we’ve designed logical spectacle frames that are reliable and insist on elegant tech solutions.
Jacob Kilsgaard founded the company in 2007. The concept was ready to launch in March 2008 at the Drommesyn show in Copenhagen. Since then the company has grown to be a global player in the high-end eyewear market.
The future of eyewear
Team Kilsgaard strives to sustain positive development—challenging ourselves to be creative, while allowing ourselves to be different. We find our inspiration all over, but it’s grounded in the Danish and Scandinavian culture and fashion- and architectural industry. Functionality comes first. In Denmark we dare to be different. We take the road not travelled. Kilsgaard blazes its own trail, not so others can follow, but to show it can be done.
With love and respect.
