100 YEARS BAUHAUS: EXPERIMENTAL FESTIVAL KICKS OFF AT ADK

100 YEARS BAUHAUS: EXPERIMENTAL FESTIVAL KICKS OFF AT ADK

2019 will be marked by functional design and modern architecture: the famous Bauhaus was founded precisely 100 years ago and seems to be more present than ever, not only in Germany but all over the world. Under the motto “Rethink the World,” the Bauhaus Association 2019 is honoring the centenary with a year’s worth of cultural events, kicking it all off with the opening festival at the Akademie der Künste from 16.01 to 24.01. Apart from its focus on architecture, it also offers a rich experimental program on the thresholds between art, film, dance, and music. The virtual reality installation “Das Totale Tanz Theater 360°” blurs the lines between body and space, questioning the relationship between man and machine in true Bauhaus manier. Exclusively for the concert series “Signalraum: Unikate,” artists developed their own musical instruments. Annette Krebs creates electro-acoustic assemblages, while the performance by director Horst Konietzny and experimental musician Marek Choloniewski transforms brain waves into soundscapes. In the final presentation of the workshop “Bauhaus and Me” on 21.01, dance artist and choreographer Jo Parkes with students from Bertolt-Brecht-Oberschule explore the impact that the Bauhaus might have on the lives of young Berliners today. The Bauhaus continues to be a source of inspiration and now you can join in on the celebrations. Check the festival website for the complete program and ticket information.

GRASS IS THE NEW PINE: ADVENT & BLACK FRIDAY AT MARSANO

GRASS IS THE NEW PINE: ADVENT & BLACK FRIDAY AT MARSANO

This Advent, Marsano is swapping pine needle wreaths and the other usual festive deco suspects for a trans-seasonal concept. Inspired by pastoral German landscapes — as viewed from a train window this long, hot summer just gone: grasses are the hero material in its pre-Christmas offerings this year, some of which were hand collected on Sylt. The grass theme was not only chosen for its delightful aesthetic effect, but also with sustainability in mind: the wreaths last far past December, making for beautiful wall decorations well into the new year. Marsano’s candles abide by the same principle: their high-quality Swiss stumps have a burning time of around 180 hours. Tonight (22.11.2018, 17h) marks the official opening of the Advent exhibition: Now’s the time to nab the most beautiful wreaths (and enjoy a glass of wine). P.S. Should you stop by Friday, you’ll have the chance to take home a bit of non-floral deco, too — thanks to a Black Friday discount of 20% on all non-Christmassy objects, furniture and accessories.

HAY FOR SONOS — CRISP SOUND IN A FRESH COLOR PALETTE

HAY FOR SONOS — CRISP SOUND IN A FRESH COLOR PALETTE

You don’t have to be a synesthete to embrace the connection between color and sound, though a little help from design experts doesn’t hurt. Sonos has teamed up with Danish design darlings Hay to launch a limited edition set of five Sonos One speakers in tones as rich as those coming out of them. The color options (Pale Yellow, Light Grey, Soft Pink, Forest Green and Vibrant Red), were selected from the Hay palette 2018, designed to add a jolt of eye-catching contrast to any room — and provide the seamless sound experience ensured by the Alexa-integrated Sonos One speaker. Test them out for yourself tonight at a launch celebration at Sonos Store Berlin, where local artists Quintessenz have created a custom installation that will be accompanied by NTS-curated “Sound of Color” mixes, as well as drinks and finger food — plus the chance to take your favorite color straight home with you. RSVP here. (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: Sonos)
