How it all began...

Fritz (pictured left) was born and raised in Germany on Rugen Island in 
the Baltic Sea. He’s a wooden boat builder by trade and has worked on sailing yachts for many years as well as designing and making a great number of objects from furniture to kite-boards. Including handmade wooden glasses that he would make for himself from as young as 16!

Methodology

The method Fritz uses to create each handcrafted frame originates from the traditions of wooden yacht building. In homage to this traditional craft most of their frames are named after the yacht’s 'engines'- the winds that blow around our globe.

Ideology

Fritz finds making glasses appealing and challenging on many levels. A craftsmen and inventor as well as entrepreneur and designer, it’s an ever-evolving process, always discovering new insight into his self-made craft. “Creating glasses enriches my life with beauty and meaning, two of life’s essential rewards”. - Fritz
