- gold as well. The charming face of Volksluxus actually hides a workshop. Every Tuesday and Wednesday 18:00 – 21:00 you can (learn how to) make your own jewellery under guidance of a pro silversmith.
€15 an hour. €10 if in a class of three. Melt and re-design jewellery you don’t use or buy materials there.
A new hobby to keep you busy in those long winter evenings…
Thanks to the people behind Pale Blue Door for a fantastic night last week! Was so impressed by the construction work! Everything was perfect. People even sung happy birthday! Yes, there was a small confusion.
I really struggled with the red light when taking photos. Which is why some of them are b/w. Have a look at the website to see Manuel Vazquez’ photos of the stunning piece of heaven.
+: Am now addicted to horseraddish creme fraiche.
At least seen on my site. Presenting everything creative. Check out the FB page of this event taking place on Tuesday!
If you have a little creative maker inside you longing to express himself but being repressed by the absence of confreres, the missing playground or the right opportunity, look into Open Design City.
It proclaims to be a space that encourages the sharing of tools, knowledge, ideas and skills and organised some activities, Create Berlin Factory at Tempelhof in the next couple of days.
Berlin Fashion Week coming up! Due to a currently less balanced work load I can’t attend so many events but then again, I don’t think I’ll cry myself to sleep over it.
I will however go to (or have to prioritize between) the Bread & Butter opening + fair, the key to fair, an organic brunch at siebenundsiebzig, the Ellesse by Wood Wood event, Designer Scouts Fashion Show, The Big Trip by Bright, Weekday shop opening and a barbecue at Burg & Schild.
Freunde von Freunden is a brilliant website that brings you closer to the private lifes of people in Berlin through interviews and photos from their homes.
Check it out if you don’t know it already! It’s kind of like a local version of The Selby. Unfortunately the interviews are only in German but at least the photos are inter-linguistic.
(Is inter-linguistic a word or did I just make that up?)
The Max Dudler (am I the only one who thinks that name is funky?) team of architects are the masters behind Germany’s biggest open access library.
Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm Zentrum, the Humboldt University library.
How impressive is this classic, geometric building with its strict symmetry? Just looking at the photos makes me straighten my back.
Located in Geschwister-Scholl-Straße just behind Friedricshtraße Station.
I still haven’t made it to see this spectacular building in real life. For me, it’s one of those “creations” you can neither categorise as beautiful nor hideous. It’s somehow just entitled to exist.
Since April 1st and until May 15th four international artists work on the tower: Flying Förtress, Honet, Sozyone and Craig ‚KR‘ Costello. Inside the tower nine other artists exhibit and Berlin street artists will work around the tower – in the streets and subway.

(Note “Take me into your Skin” by Danish Producer Trentemöller used as soundtrack)
The temporary store is open daily 11:00 – 20:00 until May 1st! Go check it out! Various artists are exhibiting their work as well during the next month. And while you’re in the street go to Bonanza coffee heroes in number 35 for excellent coffee and cake!
Received this invitation for an event next week. Wanted to show you, because of the extraordinary format.
This is what it’s about:
Last week I visited my friend Martin at HÜFTGOLD‘s showroom – Hüftgold (“hip gold”) is German for love handles. Sweet! Much more charming than the Danish word “bollehåndtag” – which I won’t translate here.
When the labes was founded six years ago they focused on designing belts which manifested the name Hüftgold. Since then scarfs and casual jersey designs were added to the collection. Collaborations with artists result in the unique scarf prints.
I fell in love with the tasmanian devil scarf, the metal belt, the see-through t-shirt and a full-length jersey dress from the summer 2010 collection. Now longing even more for summer.
