UCON ACROBATICS PRESENTS MOTIF: BACKPACKS DESIGNED BY CREATIVES FOR A GOOD CAUSE

UCON ACROBATICS PRESENTS MOTIF: BACKPACKS DESIGNED BY CREATIVES FOR A GOOD CAUSE

Canvas totes? Totally passé. Today’s Berlin look is more compact and practical: It’s the season of the backpack. But there are greater things than chasing after trends – making good come out of them, for example. Sound utopian? The Motif charity project from backpack-maker Ucon Acrobatics is a leading example. The Berlin label from Jochen Smuda and Martin Fussenegger teamed up with 38 of the world’s most renowned design studios, each of which came up with a totally unique backpack creation. We were honored to be part of this special project with our agency, Cee Cee Creative. The kicker: Each of the 38 backpacks is a one-off edition, to be auctioned during Berlin Fashion Week for a good cause. Proceeds will go to Streem Magazine, a publication about – and sold by – people living on Berlin’s streets. Just goes to show that fashion can be about more than fleeting trends, and foster potential connections beyond consumerism and commercialism.

WORLD WITHOUT OUTSIDE: TINO SEHGAL CO-CURATES IMMERSIVE ART EXPERIENCE

WORLD WITHOUT OUTSIDE: TINO SEHGAL CO-CURATES IMMERSIVE ART EXPERIENCE

It’s often the kind of art that demands active engagement that gets under our skin and stays on our minds the longest. Blurring the boundaries between the viewer and the viewed by asking for our participation this summer is “Welt Ohne Außen” (“World Without Outside”), an extensive exhibition hosted by Gropius Bau. Leading the curation is Berlin-based artist Tino Sehgal, known for his “constructed situations,” and Thomas Oberender, director of the institution’s Immersion program. A survey of experiential installations, situations and works spanning the late 1960s up until the present lures us in — from an “environment” created by Lucio Fontana and Nanda Vigo to Carsten Höller’s “Light Wall” and VR experiences by Nonny de la Peña. An accompanying program of daily workshops and live works, open to all, will transcend the boundaries between artistic disciplines and challenge participants to engage their senses, bodies and emotions together with a group of artists that includes Claire Vivianne Sobottke, Maria Francesca Scaroni and Xavier Le Roy. Take a look at the full program here and prepare to test the boundaries of your comfort zone — an experience which promises to challenge and reward in equal measure.

NANO KAFFEE — ON THE CREST OF THE THIRD WAVE

NANO KAFFEE — ON THE CREST OF THE THIRD WAVE

The art of coffee, what people call its “third wave,” is an ethos that rests on contemplation and experimentation. Each bean has unique potential, a natural variation that some passionate individuals spend years trying to evince. Ramin Massah of Nano Kaffee is one such individual. After many years working with the intricacies of wood as a carpenter, Ramin turned his attention to the complexity of coffee, resulting in the opening of Nano in October last year. Nano offers a few small snacks but, as you might have already guessed, there is a heavy coffee focus here. On one side of the room is an espresso bar where you’ll order more traditional coffees, made with absolute care and precision. On the other side is the brew bar. This is where you have the opportunity to sample Ramin’s ever-changing string of beautiful craft coffees. With more additions lined up for the brew bar and furniture under construction for a new outdoor area, it seems Nano is quickly warming the hearts of Berlin’s third wave community, and for good reason.

KIRSTEN HERMANN RECOMMENDS: MICHAEL SONTAG SHOP

KIRSTEN HERMANN RECOMMENDS: MICHAEL SONTAG SHOP

Books and albums are things we immerse ourselves in. As we flip pages and dwell in layers of sound, inner tones spark and shine. Encountering Michael Sontag’s new Kreuzberg shop has the brilliance of such an experience. The idea of his collection is well composed, reflected by the simple colours and reduced décor of the shop. I fell in love with a red stonewash silk top, a dark grey ribbed top with black sateen stripes, a skirt made from green loden, a navy sweater made from micro-jersey and, of course, one of his famous draping dresses. The storefront is strictly transparent, and the inner partitions are precise and minimal without trying too hard. A spirited coolness outweighs any possibility of becoming tired or overwhelmed. Although you might not find the door right away, it is there. Another world awaits you beyond the threshold. (Text: Kirsten Hermann / Photo: Christian Schwarzenberg)
