Le Labo Fragrances store in berlin Schlüterstraße. A visit is a beautiful feast for the senses.
One of the most beautiful places I photographed last year was the apartment from Ulf Sommer. Luca Lancini designed the place new but if you ask him it was Ulf who did the design. Luca’s task was to find out how Ulf wants to live, what are his needs. Then to create exactly that place – and it worked out. Ulf feels at home at this place. Luca has a very special approach to create a place for a client. His work often leads to a relationship much closer than usual for an architect.
Matcha tea is often mentioned when it comes to the new trendy super foods. I am told it is rich in vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium, all the ingredients one should be looking for, to keep one’s skin youthful and beautifully glowing.
I wanted to write about Sissi for quite a while. In my opinion, you get the best Wiener Schnitzel and Kaiserschmarrn there. It is an Austrian Restaurant as you might have discovered by me mentioning the dishes and it is absolutely amazing.
The Nordic Embassy in Berlin, is showing the work of some nordic Artist and Manufacturer in the exhibition „Structure“. The topic is “structure” or “track” – in whatever form. The wide spectrum of unique interpretations ranges from surprisingly new materials to structural experiments and innovative aesthetic effects. Structure combines Nordic craftsmanship and design and presents visions, innovation and craftsmanship of the current Norwegian creative scene. The works, designs and prototypes of 26 of the country’s greatest talents are exhibited: furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles and furnishing accessories. The exhibition was first shown at the Ventura Lambrate in Milan in 2016.
Meet my amazing friend Gunilla Weinraub. If I write here Gunilla is an illustrator, it’s not half the truth. Besides, from being an Illustrator she is a painter, mum, jazz lover and absolutely charming. She also used to run a clothes label for very colourful knitwear, mainly if not all clothes in colourful stripes and founded 1984 a Jazz club with some friends.
This article is the last one of a series of posts I started here. It turned out it was quite a naive idea I had then and I did not know how much work it would be and how much it would influence me.
Sunday two weeks ago, was the tipping point of this year’s weather. One woke up and could smell it – winter was there. It didn’t matter that the following two weeks warmed up, that was just teasing.
Things worth buying! I almost forgot how it is holding a real CD or DVD in my hands till those two arrived in my letter box! No download link. Amazing new album by Patrice. Burning Bridges was on my playlist all summer, and the album is as great as that song. It’s on repeat all day now. All the Links where to buy it are on www.patrice.net and here you can order the CD&DVD Box (I recommend that the DVD is great)
I met architect Stefan Flachsbart Partner at bfs-design in his beautiful Loft style home.
After a very long and exciting day in Neukölln, one of our last stops was supposed to be the Klunkerkranich, one of the top trending bars in Berlin. The bar is located on deck five,the roof of the parking deck of the Neukölln Arcades.
We now reach almost the end of our Neukölln Tour, and this post wasn’t planned actually. But I spoke to someone from New Yorck recommending Neukölln and got the answer – „no, I don’t want to go to ugly places.“
