Thomas Akiyama’s spectacle frame company makellos.Potsdam is emblematic of quality, comfort and timeless design. Based in beautiful Potsdam, Akiyama has created a collection with a unique Japanese-German identity. Raised between Germany and Japan, Thomas Akiyama feels equally at home in both countries. Since 2008, Akiyama has been the managing director of the Japanese company Aoyama Optical Germany (AOG). He purchased all shares in 2014. During that year, Akiyama and his partner Britta Born founded a new spectacle frame company and named it makellos.Potsdam, the German word for flawless.
