THAI & TECHNO — SHAKING HYBERNATION OFF IN STYLE

THAI & TECHNO — SHAKING HYBERNATION OFF IN STYLE

Spring has finally sprung and if you find yourself inspired to go out instead of snuggling under infinite amounts of blankets, we’re right there with you and will perhaps see you at Thai & Techno this Friday night (27.3.2015). With the success of Opal Collective‘s launch in Fall 2015, patrons and friends will unite once again for a night of favorites: Thai food, cocktails, and well curated electronic music. Sip on Thai inspired cocktails mixed to perfection with Berlin-made spirits; warm up to concept and atmosphere, deep house music pulsating in the background. As FluxBau’s dance floor comes to life, eat favorites from last year like delicious, vegan stir-fried sukiyaki noodles along with newly concocted treats like black rice pudding with coconut and banana. The event advertises that the floor stays open until the last person goes home. The night is not to be missed; we’ve had a taste and are bouncing off our seats for more.

MÖON — SUSTAINABLE FASHION FOR GUILT-FREE SHOPPING

MÖON — SUSTAINABLE FASHION FOR GUILT-FREE SHOPPING

Popular opinion stigmatizes the shopping spree as something indulgent and perhaps unnecessary. Must shopping be so one-sided? Möon may be the key to satisfaction rather than regret after a long day of shopping. Here, owners Sonja and Ester have been offering carefully selected sustainable clothing and accessories since December 2014. Keeping close contact with suppliers, they are happy to share enthusiasm about the origins of their products while helping customers find exactly what they’re looking for. In-between the lovely plant decor, the store features fashion for both women and men by brands like the half Japanese-British label People Tree, Bhalo from Australia and L’herbe rouge from France. I personally fell in love with hand made shoes by the New York label Osborn, who work exclusively with organic cotton and leather. While every conscientious shopper can already find something here, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next – their range of products is still growing.

JANAR SINILOO RECOMMENDS: BLÄCKFISK TATTOO CO.

JANAR SINILOO RECOMMENDS: BLÄCKFISK TATTOO CO.

Some express life changes with a Facebook update, while others with a haircut. After moving to Berlin in early 2015, I knew I had to mark this milestone with a new tattoo. Picking the right tattoo parlor was easy after seeing the portfolio of the guys at Bläckfisk, specially the bold style of Marcos Ortega, which was opened by Nick Kater in 2012. Its custom façade – a black background with a huge squid on it – is impossible to miss. Enter the shop awestruck by colorful flashes on the walls, say hello to the tattooed mannequins and enjoy the bizarre accessories displayed inside. Keep your eyes peeled for regular guest appearances by well-known artists from around the world while enjoying a meaningful tattoo experience. I have gotten two tattoos there already and can’t wait to visit the guys again. Walk-ins are welcome. (Text & photo: Janar Siniloo)

COLAB — TYPE DESIGN EXHIBITION AT THE BUCHSTABENMUSEUM

COLAB — TYPE DESIGN EXHIBITION AT THE BUCHSTABENMUSEUM

Hidden under the façade of an old supermarket, the Buchstabenmuseum is not quite noticeable at first. Give it a second chance, and a home to collections of typography will reveal itself as something quite fitting. Both the building and its collections spell out a history, devoid of didactic pedagogical methods many museum visitors have grown accustomed to. The result is powerful. Sometimes, typography must be given room to speak for itself in order for us to realize its influences. Greet familiar friends like “U” of the U-bahn. Hear the typographies out and prepare to be astounded. Countless stories are available beneath the form’s surfaces to our mind’s eye. With knowledge comes responsibility: how will the museum continue to reflect and bring justice to this essential and ever-changing medium? An economical and aesthetically pleasing exhibition “Colab“, a year and a half long project by HTW and communication design 19 students, may be the answer. We highly recommend the typography chocolate by Christian Pannicke. (Text: Anna-Lena Charbonnier / Photo: Andrea Katheder)

ZERSTÖRT — AMONG TWO WORLDS AT NEU WEST BERLIN

ZERSTÖRT — AMONG TWO WORLDS AT NEU WEST BERLIN

Berlin is growing up. Some call it gentrification. This process brings wealth on the other hand, it leads to displacement of old tenants and institutions. Affordable working spaces and studios, once so abundant in Berlin, are becoming difficult to find. The imminent closing of the Neu West Berlin is just one example of this common and unfortunate process. Unique to the institution’s genius, wells of symbolism behind the closing of its doors will culminate into an event called “Zerstört” — translated to “destroyed” in English — in collaboration with TrashEra. Anticipate a twelve-hour fusion of subculture and party, action and occurrence. More specifically, 5 DJs, 6 artists and 21 performers contribute their craft by means of installations, performances, rave and culinary program in order to raise awareness: terminating leases, urban developments and Berlin’s new identity as a metropolis. You, of course, are integral to this process. This Saturday (28.3.2015) join the opportunity and event that arguably belongs to Berlin. (Text: Anna-Lena Charbonnier / Photo: Benjamin Degen)
