MYCS: FRIEDRICHSTRASSE INTERIOR DESIGN SHOP FOR FURNITURE DESIGNS THAT MATCH YOUR SPACE AND STYLE — ONLINE AND INSTORE

MYCS: FRIEDRICHSTRASSE INTERIOR DESIGN SHOP FOR FURNITURE DESIGNS THAT MATCH YOUR SPACE AND STYLE — ONLINE AND INSTORE

Having spent so much time indoors over the past year, I have been giving lots of thought to how I can turn my apartment into a space that works for me. Rather than off the rack designs, I am always looking for furniture that fits my space and individual style. If you feel like this too, MYCS might just be the right place for fresh ideas. The brand features numerous chairs, dining tables, shelves, cabinets, cupboards and sideboards and lets you play around with different formations and styles. Currently they have around 18,000 modules which can be combined to create countless fixture variations. Along with the huge color variations already in place (100+), MYCS have also given their GRYD range a makeover with a new slick modern palette that can be mixed and matched to make combinations to suit your mood. These new colors are accompanied by modern matte finishes and are even more hard-wearing, robust and scratch-resistant. To top it off, the GRYD series consists of 85 percent renewable raw materials.

You can design your interior style right from home online or pop by the showroom at Friedrichstrasse if you need advice in person. Personally, I love stopping by the store to really feel and experience the pieces on offer, though the online configurator is so easy and fun it almost feels like a game. According to MYCS, their self-developed online configurator is the most advanced in the world, without need for special software or apps. The brand has got most types of furniture covered, with highlights including the Tyme sofa system, the Tymber Nordyc table and the Syde table with a marble top. If you’re short on time or need extra help, the team also has a personalized interior design service so you can kit out your home without the usual stress. As for the design philosophy, the focus is on minimalistic, geometric, contemporary pieces, though you can make them your own with the various finishes and add-ons. If you prefer seeing your furniture up close before you buy (and who doesn’t?) you can book an appointment to visit the showroom where the team will show you all the myriad options. The only challenge: making your mind up!

A BIT OF BAVARIA IN BERLIN —EDAMAME LOAVES AND NATURAL SOURDOUGH BREADS FROM HOFPFISTEREI

A BIT OF BAVARIA IN BERLIN —EDAMAME LOAVES AND NATURAL SOURDOUGH BREADS FROM HOFPFISTEREI

“One Edamame Sonne, please!” If you hear yourself saying that, then you’re ordering not at a Japanese restaurant, but at the counter of Bavarian bakery Hofpfisterei. The Munich-based company have always been a fan of Berlin, having operated in the capital for over ten years with their 12 branches. They’ve been baking favorites including Vinschgauer (a type of spelt baguette), crispy butter pretzels and, of course, natural sourdough loaves that involve a three-stage dough making process taking almost 24 hours. The result is loaves that look and feel like they should: large, round and heavy. The loaves are mild, yet substantial, making them perfect for the classic German Abendbrot or a sandwich on the go. But even for a traditional company like this one, time never stands still: the Bavarian bakers are always looking to keep up with the times by working on new recipes such as the Pfister Eco Edamame Sonne. This latest addition is based on rye and wheat flour and, as the name suggests, contains a high proportion of edamame beans. Like all the other ingredients used, the beans are organically farmed in an eco-friendly way, a commitment which Hofpfisterei extends to its packaging with a cooperation with Umtüüt to offer reusable alternatives to plastic bags. The bread contains edamame for more than just taste reasons: the bakery takes an active interest in experimenting with plant proteins nourished by the sun. All this circular sustainability in a little round loaf? Sounds like the perfect match to us. Visit hofpfisterei.de to find your nearest Berlin bakery.

FRESKO — STYLISH SOUTH ITALIAN DELI FOR ARTISANAL LUNCH SNACKS AND PANTRY SUPPLIES

FRESKO — STYLISH SOUTH ITALIAN DELI FOR ARTISANAL LUNCH SNACKS AND PANTRY SUPPLIES

South Italian specialities presented in style: that’s the name of the game at Fresko, the deli for Apulian produce that opened in July 2021 on Mitte’s Brunnenstrasse. The shop is actually located next to Bar Milano, which is no coincidence since it’s from the same crew – Kappa and Eva – whose drinks and small plates have perfected the art of the Italian aperitivo. Carefully designed by architects Arno Brandlhuber and Sam Chermayeff, the shop’s highlight is the sleek walk-in fridge, which is packed with fresh ingredients including quality ricotta, burrata and tender bresaola cured beef. Perched on beautiful shelves you’ll find handmade pasta from Gragnano plus hard-to-find items like Fior di Sale alle Olive Nere. This fine salt is harvested by hand from water and placed into tanks to be dried in the sun.

If you don’t have time to assemble these ingredients into a meal, the shop also has ready-made dishes to stock up on, including piadine, tramezzini sandwiches, sauces and soups. The name Fresko derives from the Italian word for freshness, which tells you all you need to know about the store’s focus. But the place is about more than taste: the team have put a lot of care into the shop’s visual style, and the Cee Cee team are proud to have played a small part with the logo, which was created by our in-house agency Cee Cee Creative. Why not drop by, take a look around, and pick up some tasty treats – and whilst you’re there maybe a drink or two at Bar Milano…

MOEON MEN — CONSCIOUSLY-SOURCED CLOTHING, NOW FOR MEN

MOEON MEN — CONSCIOUSLY-SOURCED CLOTHING, NOW FOR MEN

“Our passion is fashion, but we don’t identify with the industry behind it.” Moeon founders Ester Fröhler and Sonja Lotz are candid about where they stand. And while environmentally-friendly women’s fashion has made real strides in the industry, menswear has a way to go. Enter the duo’s new store Moeon Men, which since March 2020 has been offering lovingly curated menswear with a conscience. Since 2014 Ester and Sonja have pursued a environmentally and socially responsible approach to fashion, resulting in a collection of clothes, shoes and accessories that is constantly expanding, with the likes of ArmedangelsNovesta and Nudie Jeans as well as in-house Moeon Studio. As for the garments, how about the Henry organic cotton shorts or the indigo blue worker jacket by Nudie? Or the trainers made from recycled and natural materials by Veja matched with a classic plain Tee from Rotholz? The full collection can be explored online or at the beautiful shop at Schönleinstraße in Kreuzberg. In both cases the focus is on the essentials, because when it comes to fashion, less really is more…

OY SURF — STYLISH, FUNCTIONAL SWIMWEAR CREATED IN BERLIN AND MADE IN PORTUGAL

OY SURF — STYLISH, FUNCTIONAL SWIMWEAR CREATED IN BERLIN AND MADE IN PORTUGAL

Ever experienced the annoyance of buying a new bikini and it discoloring in the sun or falling down in the water? It’s the last thing you want on your beach vacation or day at the lake. The folks at swimwear brand Oy Surf know this struggle, and offer a fix with their stylish and supportive swimwear line. The beach-ready collection has been developed by owners Zelia and Dario who, as keen surfers, understand the importance of having reliable swimming gear that still lets you feel confident and fashionable. As for the styles, think swimsuits and bikinis with watercolor brushstrokes in neutral, mellow tones. I particularly love the painted print effect on the Zonda Swimsuit, which gives you good support without feeling restrictive – in case you do want to jump on a surfboard! The garments are very much an international effort: designed in Berlin, the pieces are made in Portugal from recycled materials, while the brand itself came into being somewhere between Zürich and Bali in 2012. If like us you can’t wait until your next visit to the pool or lake and are looking for the best kit, Oy has got you covered – literally.
