A young entrepreneurial team of four friends, with a passion for eyewear and artisan design, GABE Eyewear entered the eyewear market in 2016.
Frames in natural materials with everyday functionality and a creative design orientation.
The Gabe Eyewear team - Mike Milkowski, Gabriel Kirschner, Ralf Kropf and Simon Klein – launched at Mido in 2016.
“People were very excited about our unique designs and our signature innovation, the “Snap-Joint” horn hinge that features the use of adaptable horn temples,” says Mike Milkowski, Chief Creative Officer.
“Our idea to make wood frames dates back to 2012. It was quite clear to us that we wanted to focus on natural materials – while not letting those be a burden for customers and opticians. Today we are using wood and buffalo horn, handcrafted in designs that offer unconventional styling and a touch of nostalgia.”
