Berlin looks great everyone, so go ahead pick a pair that's right for you.

Ic! Berlin is an cool eyewear concept developed by Philipp Haffmans and Harald Gottschling in Berlin in 1997, before they founded their new brand MYKITA in 2003. 
The company’s mainstay is sheetmetal glasses, priding itself in designing and producing them without screws, soldering or welding. The screwless system allows users to separate the temples from the front frame, and change the lenses by hand with a few twists and turns.
ic! berlin temples are uniquely designed to use no screws, however, this sometimes leaves people confused as to what to do when the temples come off. Here's a very detailed video that shows how to take the temples off and on all by yourself. Or, if this just doesn't appeal to you, bring them on in to us & we'll fix them in no time flat!

ic! berlin hand makes all their glasses out of stainless steel sheet metal. Here is a great video to get an idea of all the handiwork that goes into these special frames
