IC Berlin Frames | Eyeglasses Evolved

Once in the rarest while an object comes along that represents the pinnacle of design for a particular category of product. For eyeglasses, that event occurred about 5 years ago when a small German firm hit the market with a revolutionary concept in materials and engineering. IC Berlin frames are laser cut from thin sheets of surgical stainless steel… an incredibly flexible, feather light metal that can withstand any abuse you throw at them. The unique qualities of the steel are harnessed in a magical hinge that has to be played with to understand its genius – no springs, screws, or additional parts whatsoever. Available in every shape and size imaginable (sunglass and prescription) at price points starting about $350 they’re not inexpensive. But instead of paying that kind of money for oversized “designer” logos that will be out of style next summer, IC Berlin makes glasses for those who prefer to wear brilliant design as all the logo they need.
