TIMOROUS BEASTIES: THE WALLPAPER AND TEXTILE STUDIO SERVING STATEMENT GRAPHICS AND LAVISH PATTERNS

TIMOROUS BEASTIES: THE WALLPAPER AND TEXTILE STUDIO SERVING STATEMENT GRAPHICS AND LAVISH PATTERNS

Your home interior is never quite finished – at least not until you’ve added those final touches such as wallpaper and textiles. After all, most of us want a rug in the living room or some curtains in the bedroom. Helping you furnish your flat with flair is Timorous Beasties, the textile studio that has been bringing Scottish punk to wallpapers, fabrics and cushions since 1990. You can now add rugs to that list with the brand’s Art Rug collection of provocative and exotic carpet styles. The designs are inspired by the iridescent and often outlandish patterns created by Timorous Beasties founders Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, whose signature wallpapers are celebrated for their irreverent chic. Using a variety of materials – from natural linens and cottons to cloth made from recycled plastic bottles – the Timorous Beasties range is designed in Glasgow and manufactured in the UK and Europe.

You can see the wallpaper and textile collections up close at the brand’s Schöneberg showroom which, with its high ceilings and concrete floors is the ideal canvas for the striking designs. Visits are by appointment or during opening hours, though we’d recommend putting 19.05.2022 in your calendar: from 16h you can visit the Art Rugs Collection Preview, giving you a sneak peek at the new pieces. Part of the Open Berlin & Studio Open Night from Berlin Design Week (12.–22.05), the launch also gives you the chance to check out the full Timorous Beasties range while enjoying a drink. Whether it’s statement graphics or lavish patterns, the designs will help you make your interior bright, bold and beautiful.

OUTDOOR FLOWER MARKET AT SOHO HOUSE WITH STUDIO LINNÉ

OUTDOOR FLOWER MARKET AT SOHO HOUSE WITH STUDIO LINNÉ

This Sunday (08.05.2022) is Mother’s Day in Germany. And a special Sunday calls for a special market – one that’s particularly beautiful and fragrant. The Soho House outdoor flower market from Neukölln flower studio Studio Linné doesn’t disappoint in this regard. With considerable skill, flower designer Misha Todirașcu combines Ikebana – the Japanese art of flower arranging – with a modern floral touch. Whether she’s around to celebrate or not, Mother’s Day is the perfect occasion to discover Linné’s decorative, candy colored floral arrangements and the designer vases to match them. With the spring weather here, we say: time to bring those fresh floral vibes.

EQUIPE BERLIN X FRIENDS POP-UP: THREE BRANDS TEAM UP FOR INNOVATIVE SLOW FASHION EVENT

EQUIPE BERLIN X FRIENDS POP-UP: THREE BRANDS TEAM UP FOR INNOVATIVE SLOW FASHION EVENT

There’s nothing quite like a spring clean. But what if our consumption choices prevented us from ever needing one in the first place? Enter Equipe Berlin, the project for sustainable yet stylish fashion pieces. Formed by three Berlin-based sustainable fashion labels – Kuvert BerlinManakaa Project and Pugnat – the collective is hosting a pop-up event this week (05.-07.05.2022) where you can browse and buy a range of “slow luxury” garments. The three labels blend design and innovative cuts while maintaining functionality and timelessness via simple tones. How about an ivory-hued blouse from Manakaa Project in “non-violent” organic silk or a sweatshirt with handmade embroidery made from ecological textiles? For a handy pullover to keep the chill off your shoulders, the super soft cashmere knits from Pugnat will feel like cloud nine; carry it in a canvas shopper by Kuvert Berlin.

The pop-up doesn’t just feature the brands’ own designs, though. For each event, Equipe Berlin teams up with a designer to celebrate local talent and innovation and fuel community spirit. This week, you can look forward to Wanda Wasabi, a fashion brand founded by Berliner Anne Wolf and Miki Kawai from Japan. The pair craft garments by repurposing vintage Japanese kimonos, giving old threads new life. This week’s event is the first of a series of pop-ups, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for future gatherings where you’ll find more sustainable finds from bright fashion minds.

FINE-DINING FROM UKRAINE: KYIV RESTAURANT MIRALI TAKES OVER HORVÁTH FOR A CHARITY DINNER

FINE-DINING FROM UKRAINE: KYIV RESTAURANT MIRALI TAKES OVER HORVÁTH FOR A CHARITY DINNER

Kreuzberg meets Kyiv: Michelin-starred restaurant Horváth is teaming up with Ukrainian fine-dining restaurant Mirali for a special charity dinner next Tuesday (10.05.2022). To help raise funds for those affected by the war, Hovárth’s head chef Sebastian Frank and his team are making way for Mirali Dilbazi and his team from the Kyiv eatery. The collab is something of a meeting of minds: “I’ve heard a lot about him. I would have preferred to get to know his cooking under different circumstances, but we are happy to be able to assist him in this way,” says Frank. You will be able to sample a dinner from the visiting chefs, with all proceeds donated to Ukrainian drinks retailer Good Wine which provides 400 ready-cooked meals a day to people in Kyiv. On the seven-course tasting menu is a selection of seasonal Ukrainian cuisine with matching wine and drinks. All Horváth’s employees will forgo their wages in order to support Good Wine and fund the purchase of food for the meals. If you want to join for this memorable night, you can book your table online.
