Founder and CEO, ic! berlin
Ralph is the founder of ic! berlin, an independent eyewear label producing frames exclusively in its own workshops in Berlin. In the nearly two decades since its creation, ic! berlin has picked up over 20 design awards from all over the world and is sold in over 60 countries. Ralph has been described as inspiring, refreshing, a visionary, an intellectual and artistic; from this list one can easily discern that this is a unique individual and company. One of Ralph’s personal passions is singing and it has overflowed into his company as a come-as-you-are choir held the first hour of the workweek. Perpetually on the move Ralph doesn’t have an office, or even a desk he can call his own. The longest he sits in one place is usually the giant red armchair in the foyer when he checks his emails.
