Bücherzelle – Public Book Cases

In Berlin exists a quite big sharing and exchange culture. If I have something I don’t need anymore, I usually put it on the mailbox with a note saying „zu verschenken“. Hardly ever something is not taken by someone. Books, Clothes and even furniture, somebody in the building could find a use for those things.

„Structure“ in the nordic embassy


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.


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.

Macrame design by Dörthe Bundt from California Dreaming

California Dreaming – Macrame in Berlin

If you’d ask me to name just one single trend in interior, it would be succulents. They are everywhere. So the beautiful macrame designs by Dörthe Bundt from California Dreaming are what we need to show them. Bringing back traditional craft techniques is another big and beautiful trend in home and interior. I love the macrame hanger, they are an unusual and elegant way to show plants in interiors.

Lager Lager Crafts Beer Laden

What to drink if you are cool and hip? Well, easy during the daytime – third wave coffee and smoothies / juices (everything green and chia and Baobab). But when it comes to alcohol it’s getting difficult. Wine is too establishment, cocktails old fashioned, regular beer a bit working class.
