ic! berlin x Studio Sebastian Herkner
The innovative eyewear brand ic! berlin and Sebastian Herkner, designer of the year 2019, launch a joint capsule collection. 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 collaborates 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 colors. Essential design attributes of this 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 37-year-old. "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."
The eyewear models of ic! berlin x Studio Sebastian Herkner Capsule Collection are named after iconic locations and buildings in Berlin, which for Mr. Herkner exemplify the German capital and its architectural diversity. The four models are therefore named "Avus", "Bellevue", "Hansa" and "Dahlem".
