specs berlin

    After many years of working at an optometrist, Claas Witzel opened up Specs in Berlin’s trendy Alte Schönhauser Strasse, Mitte’s fashion hub. The minimalist design of the space is the perfect setting for the roughly 800 different glasses hailing from a well curated selection of  brands like Moscot, a classic favored by John Lennon and Andy Warhol, Tom Ford, Dita, and Mykita to name just a few. “I want to sell beautiful glasses in a beautiful environment. There is an emotion attached to our products”, explains Witzel. And to make the setting even more appealing to his customers, he follows the motto “one artist, one wall, one year” which means that every year Specs commissions a piece of artwork from an artist to be exhibited on one specific wall of the store.Show lessRead more
