KGEK Design was created 13 years ago by Graham and Ethan Reynolds as an exploration in jewelry design. The company has grown dramatically over the years and recently underwent a rebranding to become House Forty Eight (what it is today).
Stainless Steel Sun Collection
Releasing Summer 2019
The collection is the first step in growing House Forty Eight from a jewelry focused brand into an accessories brand. the line is designed around ease of manufacturing and is fashioned from stainless steel sheets. The parts are laser-cut then formed through a series of bending and folding. Adding hinges, silicone padding, and lenses is the final step of assembly.
Frame : L-01
L-O1 has a distinctive layered aesthetic, achieved by bending one flat piece of steel in half, creating a front and back panel. The layering creates an elegant, architectural silhouette.
