Visit at IC! Berlin

On 4 February 2015 the Design group visited “ic!Berlin”, the internationally renowned Berlin’s eyewear manufacturer in the Backfabrik, Prenzlauer Berg. We were warmly welcomed by Ralph Anderl, the CEO and one of the founders of ic!Berlin. He gave an informative introduction about the company and its amazing development starting from its beginning in his living room to a global firm of today. Each ic!Berlin frame features a one-of-a-kind patented screwless hinge system and manufactured by hand.

A tour through the factory gave us an overview of the manufacturing process from the design to the production with the most modern laser to the ready-to-wear designer glasses. We didn’t miss to visit the piano room where the employees start the week by singing together.
