In the pursuit of a name for our frames, we looked for something that symbolised our Italian heritage. We went back in time to the language of ancient Rome and its empire: Latin. RES REI means ‘the thing’ in Latin. It means an existing object, with substance and form; but it also means a concept, an idea. RES/REI is the ensemble of things that make life around us, in all given forms. We believe on incremental development; we question constantly our work, both aesthetically and functionally. We focus on the little details that, at the end of the day, make the difference between ‘the good’ and ‘the exceptional’. We stand for individuality, durability, and research for perfection.
Masunaga Optical - The company’s mission statement since the establishment is “We manufacture excellent eyeglasses. We want to make a profit if we can, but we don’t hesitate to take a loss. It is always in our thoughts to manufacture excellent eyeglasses.” These words are still the basis of the conduct code of employees even more than 100 years after its establishment.
The Lunor eyewear collection was originally founded by Gernot Lindner, an avid collector of antiques. Lindner's general interest in antiques eventually led him to collect antique eyewear. When the time came for Lindner to look for eyewear for himself, he found nothing that compared to the quality he knew in the antique eyewear collection he already owned. Inspired by the quality craftsmanship of these antique pieces, Lindner founded the Lunor company in 1991.
