A little bit on the founder:
“Ralph Anderl is founder and visionary of the brand ic! berlin. Ralph is a refreshing person. He reaches into the spokes of large wheels they then start turning. He is not a business punk, rather a business clown, an unseizable intermediate being. Chef, singer, artist, designer, and most of all a very successful sheetmetal glasses salesman. Free of fear he has chained himself to ic! berlin.
The brand ic! berlin is an artistic story from and about Ralph Anderl. “Pluck something out of the air” and “quickly throw together” are, in addition to his good instincts for magnificent business and exciting approaches to solve problems, headspinning techniques that he masters. Ralph is a family man and as such he knows to act responsibly and reliably. Whenever possible, he spends time with his children, integrating them. His desire to lead the company like a family manifests in the company choir, the collective cooking in the office as well as in a captivating detail: Ralph empties the dishwasher.
He travels a lot, likes to surround himself with extravagant things, resides flamboyant and stands out in any other way as well. He is an inspiring person, my encounters with him are explosions of opportunities in a solid roadbed straight to Mars. ” Friedrich Liechtenstein
