ic! berlin and Sebastian Herkner, designer of the year 2019, announce the launch of a joint capsule collection of eyewear for Autumn/Winter 2019/20. Known as a designer for some of the world’s most recognized interior brands like Thonet and ClassiCon, this is the first time the German designer has collaborated in the lifestyle and fashion world with eyewear manufacturer ic! berlin.
The ic! berlin x Studio Sebastian Herkner Capsule Collection consists of four unisex models, two prescription glasses and two sunglasses, each available in three different colours. Essential design attributes of the high-end collection are extravagant forms, the skillful use of different materials as well as the patented ic! berlin screwless hinge system, manufactured by hand in Berlin. “My design approach is to combine old crafting techniques with new technologies. This perfect synergy is also excellently reflected in ic! berlin itself,” explains the 38-year-old designer.
“The idea behind our joint collection was to showcase diversity and to create different styles, connected by an elegant and modern use of high-quality materials and unexpected surfaces.”
