1st February 2014 Located between Gdansk and Gdynia, Sopot is a Polish seaside town, known for its art nouveau architecture and beautiful historic parks and gardens. This is the location of OOG, a concept store for niche eyewear brands such as Gotti, ic! berlin, Oscar Magnuson, Andy Wolf, Mykita and REIZ Germany.
“In Poland, there are few optical stores like this that promote true eyewear design over the mass-produced,” explains owner and eyewear distributor, Adam Kujawski. “I am sure it will change in the future, but for now we are one of just 5 or 6 stores working with interesting independent brands.”
An architect-designed interior, the work of Polish interior designers, Manadesign – www.manadesign.pl, was completed in July 2013. The ambience encourages customers to try on as many glasses as they wish in a comfortable, stylish yet homely atmosphere they will return to for new inspiration.
“We have decided to give our customers a choice of different labels,” adds Kujawski, “and we aim to bring more brands that we love to Poland, as soon as we can.”
