Founded in Germany in 1999 by Ralph Anderl, ic! berlin designs and produces high-end, handcrafted eyewear. Each pair of ic! berlin eyewear is produced and hand finished, piece by piece at their own manufacturing facility in Berlin, Germany. The company has received a myriad of design awards recognising their innovation and technological design process. The sophisticated patented screw-less hinge system is unique, refined yet distinct.
ic! berlin produces eyewear from very flexible 0.5mm thick stainless steel and acetate, or a mix of these two high quality materials. The stainless steel is laser cut from one piece of sheet metal, using a patented hinge design which avoids the use of any screws, welds, or glue in the construction of their eyewear. The combination of materials and techniques allows their products to be lightweight, flexible and virtually unbreakable. ic! berlin eyewear weigh between 11g and 28g – the flexibility ensures they can be adapted to any face.
