Why munic? Why a city as a name for an eyewear brand? Sometimes in life, you make decisions instinctively. As time goes by, you also come to realize that such decisions were rationally correct as well. This is also how it went with the name munic. Initially, we only wanted to express where we come from, to tell people where our home is. Today, we understand that, intuitively, we wanted to say much more with this name. Munich and our munic brand actually have a lot in common. Munich is a self-confident, cosmopolitan and multicultural city. Anyone who lives in Munich knows how to enjoy life without losing sight of other important things. Munich is casual, authentic, stylish and creative, but not desperately extravagant. Just like munic glasses.
