ic! berlin is a German eyewear brand which produces high quality and handcrafted eyewear in Berlin, Germany. The company was founded in 1999 by Ralph Anderl.
What is ic! berlin ?
Hand finished in Berlin piece by piece, ic! berlin produces their eyewear from a 0.5mm thin stainless steel sheet metal. And the best part of the eyewear has to be the patented hinge design which is uniquely by ic! berlin only. The hinge design successfully avoids the use of any screws, welds, or glue in the construction of their frames, and it allows the eyewear frame to be dismantled totally and being able to assemble it back again still. The combination of materials and unique techniques allows the frame to be light, flexible, and virtually unbreakable. So what you get is a pair of perfectly comfortable and durable eyewear frame!
Now, what is so special about the patented hinge design?
Thanks to the hinge design, ic! berlin does not break. Even if you accidentally sit on them, step on them, drive over them, the worst that will happen is the temple pops off. No stress – in 2.4 seconds you can just clip back in like nothing ever happened.
