Named after the Japanese tradition of Mottainai where every object is considered to have a soul and should never be wasted, the Nº1 frame is designed to follow that exact principle. The frames are carved from the horn of Indian water buffalo by a natural horn atelier in Germany, who hand finishes each piece and matches them with gold-tinted Hoya lenses. Each frame is individually-numbered and housed in a black buffalo horn box. 

€1495 ($1663),
