NOMAD BARBER — AN ELEVATED GLOBAL GROOMING CONCEPT

NOMAD BARBER — AN ELEVATED GLOBAL GROOMING CONCEPT

Gentlemen, time for a trim? The Nomad Barber not only offers professional grooming services – plus Five Elephant coffee and Quartiermeister beer – but is also backed by an incredible story. In 2013, founder Miguel Gutierrez, aka “The Nomad Barber” himself, embarked on a year-long pilgrimage to discover the global history of male grooming. Travelling from Greece through Turkey and into the Middle East, Gutierrez set up his barber stool to offer locals cuts wherever he went, documenting his adventures in a web series. After establishing his first permanent location in London in 2014, his second permanent outpost landed in Graefekiez in late 2016. Haircut appointments are booked in 45-minute slots, allowing ample time for a complimentary wash, hot towel treatment, neck massage and – best of all – a “hot lather neck shave”. This makes The Nomad Barber feel more like day spa than a hairdresser – a place that transforms a regular necessity into a rejuvenating experience. (Text: Jónbjörn Finnbogason)

SIGURD LARSEN POP-UP: SLEEK DANISH FURNITURE DESIGN

A slice of hygge in Berlin: Until March, Danish furniture designer and architect Sigurd Larsen is hosting a pop-up store in collaboration with Formel A and Fantastic Frank. The concept allows design fans to experience and purchase their favorite pieces on-site, such as Larsen’s minimal “A Sofa”, spacious and floating on thin legs made of either oak or copper. Larsen’s furniture range also includes “The Shrine”: a box-like hub of drawers, perfect for a record player and smaller key-locked valuables. (Text: Victoria Pease)

STOCUBO: CUBIC BOOKCASES FOR THE CONTEMPORARY HOME

STOCUBO: CUBIC BOOKCASES FOR THE CONTEMPORARY HOME

Stocobu, launched in 2000 in a backyard on Berlin’s Torstrasse, designs white bookcases to meet all our literary needs. The name is a play on words of the company’s founding artist: (St)efan (O)berhofer, and cubo (derived from cubos). Today, Stocubo is run by Julia Haneke and is still expanding, without relocating production outside of the capital. All shelves and variations are not only designed in Berlin, but also made here. Dedicated to longevity and resource efficiency, the company makes a point of using only FSC-certified, robust wooden boards, acquired through European manufacturers. Now the company has opened its showroom just around the corner from their production site. Here you can choose your own cubes and make the perfect bookcase to fit your collection.

BRIE ET SES AMIS: DELIVERY-SERVICE FOR CHEESE LOVERS

BRIE ET SES AMIS: DELIVERY-SERVICE FOR CHEESE LOVERS

Even Berliners dream of Paris sometimes – the venerable architecture, the romantic bistros, and of course the fantastic food. At least one of these things can be found at Brie Et Ses Amis. Founded in Chartres, the family-owned business has transformed into a Berlin start-up delivering original French cheese to your doorstep. Online, find your grand amour from over 150 different cheeses, or let business owner Paula Kirchenbauer and her team put together something for you. Cheese plate selections can be bought in different sizes and combinations; only with goats cheese, for instance, or choices for pregnant women, as well as per monthly subscriptions. Getting mail from Brie Et Ses Amis feels like it was wrapped by a Francophile grandmère. All I had to do after unpacking the cheeses was shop for some nuts, grapes, and a bottle of my favorite wine. Merci! (Text: Eva Biringer)

VOLKER EICHENHOFER RECOMMENDS: KLAESI HOLDENER

VOLKER EICHENHOFER RECOMMENDS: KLAESI HOLDENER

Today, fashion is more ephemeral than ever. New designs and trends come around faster than can be followed. The young Berlin label Klaesi Holdener is taking another path, aiming for quality while focusing on essentials. In close collaboration with small-scale manufacturers in Italy, the Swiss-born designer Florian Holdener creates sophisticated and minimalist menswear – without getting tied-up in short-lived trends. Jackets and coats set the tone, which can now be bought in the recently opened store in Berlin’s west-end. Hidden inside a shopping arcade on Uhlandstrasse, the shop focuses on classics: from wool coats to down-filled bomber jackets. My personal favorites: the stitched Car Coat and the lambskin jacket, with a collection of trousers and shirts to come. Timeless but still with the times, pieces are made with an eye for quality and fine materials – have a look for yourself. (Text / Photos: Volker Eichenhofer)
