SEKTGAR — THE PERFECT BAR CONCEPT FOR YOUR NEXT PARTY

SEKTGAR — THE PERFECT BAR CONCEPT FOR YOUR NEXT PARTY

Still looking for ideas for your next company event? Want to actually celebrate your birthday instead of always playing host? Here’s an idea: let Sektgar bring the bar to you. Since 2014, Edgar and his team have been providing the bar for events, serving primarily sparkling wine alongside other creative drink concepts. At the last Cee Cee Dinner, we were treated to the full range of Edgar’s creations, including the “Barbara Rhubarbara”, “Grandma’s Secret” and “Skinny Beach”. But you don’t have to wait for a special occasion: an “Aperitivo Friday” in the office is reason enough to call Sektgar round to transform your workplace into a lively bar. And if you want to go all out, he can arrange entire events (river boat tour with Sekt and finger food anyone?) Edgar’s “Sekt Talks” podcast gives you a taste of his world, and features stars from Berlin’s cultural and gastronomic scene like “Fischmann Micha” from Glut & Späne. Ready for a party? We are.

GOING THE DISTANCE: CULTURE, RUNNING AND THE BERLIN MARATHON

GOING THE DISTANCE: CULTURE, RUNNING AND THE BERLIN MARATHON

The hype around the Berlin Marathon is undeniably huge — and rightfully so. This Sunday thousands of runners will be taking over Berlin on the 40km jaunt through the streets. But whether you’re running or cheering, everyone can join in on the festivities. We recommend diving into the culture of running by stopping into the Beinghunted gallery space for an exhibition and presentation from French brand Distance Athletics. The pop-up, from 27–29.09, centers on the newly launched Distance Book Series, where for the first edition the photographer Thibaut Grevet traveled into the highlands of Kenya to photograph the legendary village of Iten, named “The Home of Champions”. Extra tip: If you still need to gear up for the run, head over to Spreeläuferin Prenzlauer berg. This Berlin concept store is run by marathoners themselves, so you can be sure they have the expertise to fit you with the perfect gear. No matter if you’re an athlete or simply interested in the culture behind it all, this weekend is one not to miss.

ITEN, the first volume of the Distance book series with photography from Thibaut Grevet, is available at the Distance shops in Lyon and Paris or online.

TALMO: CABLES THAT ADD COLOR TO YOUR CHARGING ROUTINE

TALMO: CABLES THAT ADD COLOR TO YOUR CHARGING ROUTINE

Your phone cable is purely functional right? Not so! With their smartphone cables, Talmo have injected some flair, color and practicality into your charging routine. The start up’s founders Antonia and Paul have used their design, tech and e-commerce backgrounds to develop this range of super eye-catching cables, in a range of fun, poppy colors and patterns that match any style. With a braided cloth rather than plastic coating, they have a sturdy, tactile feel and come in the kind of packaging that you’ll want to use over and over. And with a cable tie included, they’re designed to be tangle-free too. Plus, if you are planning for the cold days ahead, Talmo have branched out into touchscreen gloves, so you can keep swiping and scrolling even in the iciest of conditions. The cables are available for iPhone and Android and come in different lengths. Head to talmo.eu to discover how even the most everyday objects can be transformed by good, playful design.

“WIE GEHT’S DIR, DEUTSCHLAND?” TAKING STOCK WITH CHRISTOPH AMEND

“WIE GEHT’S DIR, DEUTSCHLAND?” TAKING STOCK WITH CHRISTOPH AMEND

There is a tendency to think that politics and society will always get better — more economic growth, less war and more tolerance. But looking at the climate crisis, the rise of the populist right and clashes over immigration, this seems like a fanciful idea. Following his 2003 book “Morgen tanzt die Welt”, Christoph Amend, editor of Zeit Magazine, is back on the road meeting well-known German personalities and his friends to talk about how Germany is doing, and find out what has become of the country where he grew up, and what needs to change. At the centre of this new book – entitled “Wie Geht’s dir Deutschland?” (“How are you doing, Germany?”) – is the German people: the young, the old, Jewish people, migrants and refugees. In asking these people about their fears and worries, Amend unites different themes like ethnic identity, National Socialism, German reunification and other more everyday concerns. What results is a book that is both timely and valuable in how it presents important questions and topics. It’s this sort of debate and exchange of ideas that will bring the solutions we need. (Text: Katie Burton / Photos: Johanna Rademacher-Flesland)

“Wie gehts dir, Deutschland?” by Christoph Amend, published in German by Rowohlt Verlag, 2019. Hardback, 224 pages.

NIYOK — THE TOOTHPASTE FOR GUILT-FREE BRUSHING

NIYOK — THE TOOTHPASTE FOR GUILT-FREE BRUSHING

My bathroom battle is against not just plaque but also plastic. The latter is more of a problem, given the heaps of plastic packaging lining the shelves of the chemist. The result: a hurt environment and a hurt conscience. Hope for change comes by the name of Niyok– a vegan, certified-as-natural toothpaste in a sustainable chalk-based tube. This toothpaste is all about what it doesn’t contain: plasticizers, waxes, stabilizers and fluoride are all absent. For Niyok founders Carlo Hanuszkiewicz and John Peitschner, it’s crucial to know what our toiletries contain and why. Thus every ingredient (like capric triglyceride) is accompanied by an explanation (it gives the toothpaste consistency). The battle in my bathroom has now taken on a new dynamic: choosing between Niyok’s lemongrass and ginger, blood orange and basil, and classic peppermint. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: Johanna Rademacher-Flesland & Niyok)
