PLAIN: THE SUBSCRIPTION FOR MONTHLY NATURAL WINES — RECOMMENDED BY LINA KÜNZLER

PLAIN: THE SUBSCRIPTION FOR MONTHLY NATURAL WINES — RECOMMENDED BY LINA KÜNZLER

Love natural wines, but get overwhelmed by the huge variety? Plain are here to help. With their subscription, you get three natural wines (one red, one white and one sparkling) from producers far and wide brought directly to your door every month. Founder Marcus Hauer is a product designer who first encountered natural wines and their unmistakable aromas of nuts, overripe oranges and kombucha in 2008. Since then he has sought out master winemakers from all over the world for his bottles. Each selection is accompanied by a detailed profile of the product and the vineyard – Marcus appreciates how the different origins of wines enhance their distinctive character. The bottles themselves are designed by gifted wine label specialist Anna Vu, making them as visually pleasing as they are quaffable. So if you are ready to dive into the world of natural wines and get a doorstop surprise every month, you’re in the right hands with Plain.

The Wilmersdorf store for furniture and textiles is hosting an exclusive plant workshop in collaboration with Mayaa Plants on 26.02.2020 where you can try your hand at kokedama, the Japanese art of wrapping plant roots in moss. And while you’re there you can check out the design pieces selected by manager Agnese and her team from high-end brands as well as small studios and rare vintage suppliers. It’s a collection that’s bound to delight: iconic lamps from Italian pioneers Nemo, magnificent mirrors from Polish studio GieraDesign and boundary-pushing seating from Bergamo-based Pedrali. And if your entire interior concept needs work, the team will consult with you to create custom-made designs for the perfect bedroom, lounge or bathroom look. Your home will appreciate it.

FROM BARCELONA TO BERLIN — SUSTAINABLE FASHION POP-UP BY PALOMA WOOL

FROM BARCELONA TO BERLIN — SUSTAINABLE FASHION POP-UP BY PALOMA WOOL

As fast fashion continues to dominate the industry, Paloma Wool is one clothing label trying to break that cycle – with style. Barcelona-based Paloma founded her namesake brand in 2014 with the aim of merging art and clothing, and the result is a collection that takes a highly creative and experimental approach to fashion. The clothes are produced in Spain and often created in cooperation with international artists like Alejandra Smits and Romy Cole-Groth. The sustainable production methods used prioritize the creative process, resulting in garments which are a perfect demonstration of how clothing helps us express ourselves most freely. The distinctive pieces – for both men and women – are now available to browse closer to home. Paloma Wool is doing a world tour, and the next stop is Berlin, so head to Neukölln’s Studio Chérie to see and shop the collection for yourself. (Text: Sophie Döring / Photos: Paloma Wool)

CURIOUS FOX: A LITERATURE AND EVENTS HUB FOR ENGLISH READERS

CURIOUS FOX: A LITERATURE AND EVENTS HUB FOR ENGLISH READERS

Co-owner of Curious Fox Orla traces her early bookstore memories to The Winding Stair in Dublin – a shop she frequented as a teenager where you can enjoy tea while perusing your next read. In 2003, she opened her Neukölln shop with partner David who, fittingly, she met in a bookshop. Drawing Berliners of all sorts looking for English books, Curious Fox features three rooms of literature – old and new, classic and contemporary. There is a kids section for the youngsters, a range of books from Irish authors and a section of poetry from emerging and established poets from across Berlin. The shop is a centerpoint for the English-speaking literary community, running events most weeks of the month. The “Isn’t Everything Poetry” night offers an open mic and a welcoming atmosphere for budding lyricists to share their work publicly for the first time, and the next edition (04.02.2020 20–23h) will feature readings by poet Síofra McSherry and writer Bernadette Geyer. Don’t forget the quiz night – the winner of the seven–round contest gets a cash prize. (Text: Scarlett Peeters / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)
