ZORA’S DAUGHTER X AUGUSTE VINTAGE POP-UP — TWO DAYS OF HAND-SELECTED FASHION AND DESIGN

United by their love for sustainability, and beauty, Auguste Vintage curator Marie Wez and culture journalist Nella Beljan have brought together their favorite artists and brands from across the world in one single pop-up: beautiful sculptures and vases by Greek ceramic artist Terps; jewelry in organic shapes by Korean artist Yeogyeong; sustainably produced knitwear by Rus and body suits made from Italian fine rib that celebrate your figure. Handcrafted cotton rope bags from Catzorange’s Berlin studio are being offered with a special discount, and the New York label will also be exhibiting their rope sculptures. Local brands include Kiki Dieterle with rings and bracelets, vintage fashion by Auguste Vintage, and plates, cups and bowls by Goodclay Sunshine. And to top it all off, there’s a fine selection of vintage books, flowers and children’s clothing for sale. Neukölln, here we come! (Text: Rosa Künzler / Photos: Rus & Terps)

MYKILOS: CONTEMPORARY HOME FURNISHINGS AND TAILOR-MADE KITCHEN CONCEPTS

MYKILOS: CONTEMPORARY HOME FURNISHINGS AND TAILOR-MADE KITCHEN CONCEPTS

With the Bauhaus centenary, it’s a great time to revisit classic designs and update them with contemporary ideas and uses. Design label Mykilos do just this, and the result is a range of perfectly thought-out pieces. Founders Daniel Klapsing and Philipp Schöpfer met during their product design studies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, creating a range of furniture and accessories, from chairs and lamps to crystal glasses and the kitchen concepts they are known for now. In the Mykilos showrooms in Berlin and Hamburg you can see their designs in person, including the “Hang Jack” – a combined hanging lamp and power strip that works for both the home dining table and the office desk. The anodized aluminium housing is robust and can be playfully adapted to the home or workplace depending on what you plug in. The ingenuity of these designs and the high-quality materials used make Mykilos a brand we’ll be seeing in our homes and offices for a while to come.

HEISSA HOLZMARKT 25: SPREE-SIDE CHRISTMAS SPARKLE

HEISSA HOLZMARKT 25: SPREE-SIDE CHRISTMAS SPARKLE

It’s Christmas market season, and if you want to enjoy your roasted chestnuts away from the crowded mainstream, don’t miss the Heissa Holzmarkt 25, opening its gates for a third round of festive fun. Behind this cozy, mellow market is the Holzmarkt team, whose friends and regulars run many of the colorful, alternative stalls. Family fun is assured, with a vintage carousel dating from 1962, indoor children’s activities and a fire-spitting Christmas tree. The stalls are perfect for your Christmas goodies, and of course there’s the yummy delicacies: Käsespätzle, cinnamon rolls, and savoury spiced veggie Gyros, with wild boar and venison roasts for the meat lovers. Be sure to check out the World Trash Center, where old plastic is reformed and Barbie dolls are repurposed as kitschy lamps and mirrors. If you’re after something snug and cushy, head into the Weinhandlung for a tasty tipple. Ready to brave the outdoors? Go find a spot by the open fire and enjoy a hot cup of Glühwein to soothe your hands and heart. (Text: Katie Burton / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)

WHITE LABEL PROJECT: THE POP-UP FOR DESIGNS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

WHITE LABEL PROJECT: THE POP-UP FOR DESIGNS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Brands are always making claims about their sustainability, yet it never seems easy to find truly fairtrade and environmentally friendly products. White Label Project – initiated by Ann-Kathrin Zotz and Caroline Foerster – is about to change that. The pair, a former UN worker and a brand manager, have joined forces to create an online shopping platform for sustainable fashion and design. White Label collaborates with creatives from across the Global South, from Mexico to Ghana, to create a range of products that combine traditional craftsmanship with local knowhow and great attention to detail. Creatives like Pichulik, who design elegant jewellery handmade in Cape Town, and Manava, a Cambodian-based maker of pretty rattan baskets. Curious? Then check out White Label’s pop-up at Gemini Berlin this weekend (22.-24.11.) for a first glimpse at the collection. Shopping for pretty fashion and home accessories while supporting a really good cause? Count us in! (Text: Hanna Komornitzyk / Photos: White Label)

DEUTSCHE SPIRITUOSEN MANUFAKTUR: LOVINGLY DISTILLED SPIRITS IN UNEXPECTED FLAVORS

DEUTSCHE SPIRITUOSEN MANUFAKTUR: LOVINGLY DISTILLED SPIRITS IN UNEXPECTED FLAVORS

“Handmade in Berlin” is a phrase Deutsche Spirituosen Manufaktur takes seriously. Founded in May 2018 by Tim Müller and Konrad Horn, the Marzahn distillery is home to a team of pharmacists, master distillers and mixologists who select, refine and mix ingredients from all over to create more than 100 spirits. The extent of the aromas and flavors is extraordinary: from Mallorcan Verna Lemon to Palatine Fennel, DSM leave no stone unturned in their hunt for the best botanicals. This diversity means the spirits are great not just to drink, but to eat too. Sold in a 50ml spray bottle, the Bosnian porcino mushroom distillate will add a whole new layer of taste and aroma to fine cuisine. For more familiar tipples, opt for the in-house gin, vodka and Korn, which make perfect gifts and are now sold at DSM’s Mitte pop-up shop, open until mid-January 2020.
