At Home with Nina

The rooms that people live in tell us much more about them than one might think. Not only the „public rooms“ we create to be on display but the little rooms like our bathroom, the corners where our hidden inner places peep out. Everybody I’ve ever visited has these little secret places where you see the inner personality, the sensitive self.

Kitchen Livingroom Interior by Luca Lancini

Sommer Residence – Talk with Architect Luca Lancini

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.

„Structure“ in the nordic embassy

Structure

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.

Vintage Galore – Vintage Design in Neukoelln

The next stop on our Neukoelln Tour had, surprisingly, not much to do with food. But interior, beautiful furniture and design. Not all of the furniture at Vintage Galore  (tumblr) is Scandinavian, but quite a lot and mainly from the 60ies. Next to the beautiful selection of vintage furniture the have a great variety of lamps and lot’s of everyday objects.

Alexander is also a photographer, specialising in architectural pictures; find him here on flickr.
