DISCOVER UKRAINIAN DESIGNERS — POP-UP FASHION EVENT AT LOBE BLOCK

DISCOVER UKRAINIAN DESIGNERS — POP-UP FASHION EVENT AT LOBE BLOCK

Pop-ups are an amazing way to bring together local creatives. But what if they could help unite a continent? Enter ArtCode.UA, a cultural initiative that connects Ukrainian artists with the rest of Europe and raises awareness of the plight of their homeland. This Friday and Saturday (20.-21.05.2022), Artcode will be hosting a special fashion market at Lobe Block to present the work of Ukrainian talent. Browse ethereal organza-style chiffon dresses from Nadya Dzyak, tailored blazers and trousers with a design twist from Katerina Kvit and colorful stockings that pack a punch from Shur Shur, among many other items. Afterwards, accessorize with a chunky gold chain or clip-style ring with blue or yellow enamel courtesy of the demi-fine brand Poche Jewelry. If all the shopping makes you hungry, stop by the Lobe Lokal canteen for coffee and brunch. All proceeds from the pop-up go directly to the brands taking part, with a portion donated to those affected by the war. Ready to get to know Ukraine’s innovative design community? Lobe Block is where it’s at.

TETO TOFU: ARTISAN BEAN CURD MADE IN BERLIN — RECOMMENDED BY CHRISTINA HOFFMANN

TETO TOFU: ARTISAN BEAN CURD MADE IN BERLIN — RECOMMENDED BY CHRISTINA HOFFMANN

Comparing the tofu from Teto Tofu to its supermarket equivalent is like comparing a silk scarf to a potato sack – that’s how big the difference is. This Berlin bean curd maker has turned tofu into a fine art. After extensive research in Japan, owners Tomoko Yamada-Schneider and her partner Joscha Schneider have dedicated themselves to the ancient craft of tofu production – using local soybeans of course. The duo deliver by bike to Berlin’s top restaurants, delicatessens and shops and you can order the tofu for pickup online. A full selection of Teto’s products (including delicious biscuits) are sold every Saturday at the Boxhagener Platz market in Friedrichshain. To find out more about the pair’s tofu, you can chat with them at their stall or go one better and join their workshop on 21.05.2022 at the Schlossgut Finowfurt manor house in Brandenburg. There you can discover the different steps of tofu production and sample various types of fresh tofu and soybeans.

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.

THE ART OF SCREEN PRINTING — BROWSE AND BUY HANDMADE POSTERS, CARDS AND BAGS FROM ZWÖLFER

THE ART OF SCREEN PRINTING — BROWSE AND BUY HANDMADE POSTERS, CARDS AND BAGS FROM ZWÖLFER

Among the cafes, chirping birds and passers-by of Prenzlauer Berg sits the Zwölfer screen printing workshop with its attractive blue facade. There, owner Anna von Gwinner has been printing unique textiles and papers since 2010. During her art and architecture studies, Anna developed a fascination for screen printing and has been working with the medium ever since. She is particularly interested in how the method influences design: unlike digital, screen printing requires the designer to think additively. Each color has to be printed individually; each layer prepared separately. It’s through this layering that a pattern emerges. Anna’s space is mainly taken up by her studio, with just a small, kiosk-sized area for selling works.

The focus here is on making – Anna prints her own motifs on textile and paper and creates greeting cards and posters to order. A new addition to her range is the large “Baden Gehen” bag, perfect for summer trips to the lake or pool. Anna’s collection also includes linen and cotton towels which feature the “fish of the year” (Atlantic Herring) and are almost too beautiful to use. The works are filled with dedication and precision, with the analog process almost palpable. Next time you are on Oderberger Straße, pop in the blue shop and discover this art for yourself.

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.
