BOSQUE — SUSTAINABLE READY-POTTED HOUSEPLANTS DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

BOSQUE — SUSTAINABLE READY-POTTED HOUSEPLANTS DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR

Fiona Ficus, Monica Monstera, Stella Strelitzia – at Bosque they care so much about houseplants they give them names. The Kreuzberg-based service hand delivers a great selection of lovingly-cultivated plants right to your door, meaning the days of tiring trips to the garden center are gone. Launched in 2018, the website offers themed plant boxes containing a pre-selected set of gorgeous greenery, already planted in elegant terracotta pots of your choice. If you are a beginner or take a “hands-off” approach to gardening, the Unkillable Plants Box includes hardy desert dwellers and cacti, which like all Bosque’s species are sustainably bred according to FSI 2020 standards and come delivered fresh and healthy in a sleek wooden box. Whichever box you pick (you can make your own too!), you can give your new green friends a great start with the accompanying app that offers care tips and reminders. That’s not all: the whole service will be CO2-neutral by the end of 2020, making it a solidly green choice for indoor greenery. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Bosque)

Bosque plant sets and large plants come with free 1–2 day delivery. Currently delivering in Berlin & Hamburg.

SHIFT — SCHÖNEBERG HAIR SALON FOR TAILORED CUTS AND CUTTING–EDGE COLORS

SHIFT — SCHÖNEBERG HAIR SALON FOR TAILORED CUTS AND CUTTING–EDGE COLORS

This is the time of year when the sun and salt water have taken their toll on your hair, calling for some much needed tlc. Shift, hidden within an old post building in Schöneberg, is my current salon of choice for hair-based rejuvenation. Since opening in November 2018, the salon has been focused on sustainable hair services, from simple cuts right through to cutting-edge color treatments using the latest Aveda products. The stylist who cut my hair, co-founder Jörg Winkelmann, really took the time to discuss my needs and recommended a glossing to revitalize my hair’s natural color. But it isn’t just your hair that benefits here: the spacious interior featuring regularly-changing artworks combined with Jörg’s delightful head massages make the salon good for the soul too. The space is also high tech, with a state-of-the-art ventilation system which cycles the air twice an hour (handy in Corona times!) and creates power from waste heat. For a relaxing, tailored hair care experience, Shift is a cut above. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Ramona Razaghmanesh & Shift)

COMMUNITY-BASED AND SUSTAINABLE — LIVING THE FUTURE AT THE BUCKOWER FELDER

COMMUNITY-BASED AND SUSTAINABLE — LIVING THE FUTURE AT THE BUCKOWER FELDER

For many it’s a dream: a permanent place that you can truly call home. Head south to the Buckower Felder, where housing co-op Urban Coop Berlin eG has its latest building project, and you can make it real. Due to finish in 2023, the 70 apartments in three blocks can already be reserved, letting you actively shape your living space before you move in. Monthly information events let you meet your new neighbors and discover the site’s architecture and sustainable features, with the chance to influence decisions over common spaces and landscaping. On 24.9 there is a session on eco-construction with wood, a material used widely in the development. Behind the sustainable idea is architect Robert Ostmann, who was inspired by innovative cooperative projects in Zürich. The result is a community-oriented concept, with floor plans suited to young families as well as WG spaces for up to three residents featuring all en-suite bathrooms and common room access. As well as private balconies there are also spacious shared patios outside – the perfect place for barbecues with the neighbors. Sign us up!

SCHAU20 EXHIBITION AND MAGAZINE — UDK STUDENTS BRING FASHION PERSPECTIVES FROM A DISTANCE

SCHAU20 EXHIBITION AND MAGAZINE — UDK STUDENTS BRING FASHION PERSPECTIVES FROM A DISTANCE

Creativity can emerge in even the most challenging of situations, as Schau20, a special exhibition by 32 fashion students from the Universität der Künste, proves. Locked down at home after Corona hit, these aspiring fashion designers got to work creating garments and design objects from donated antique tablecloths, overcoming the limits of isolation to create highly innovative pieces. The results of their work can be seen in a special exhibition running during Berlin Art Week (09.–13.09.2020) in the industrial surroundings of Berlin Decks by the Spree canal. In addition to viewing the items, you can also acquire them yourself in a raffle held on the last day, with proceeds going to the Amadeu Antonio Foundation which works against hatred and intolerance. Accompanying the show is a magazine edition designed by our sister agency Cee Cee Creative which includes photos and features in which the students share their experiences of designing during lockdown. You can pick up your copy in selected spots around town or at the opening night (10.09 from 18h), where there will be food and drink plus exhibitions from Office Impart (see below!) and artist Thomas Grandi.

REDISCOVERING A GREAT THINKER OF MODERN TIMES — HANNAH ARENDT AT THE DEUTSCHES HISTORISCHES MUSEUM

REDISCOVERING A GREAT THINKER OF MODERN TIMES — HANNAH ARENDT AT THE DEUTSCHES HISTORISCHES MUSEUM

In a year that has brought multiple landmark political and social changes, it can be useful to take stock by exploring the big moments from the past. The Hannah Arendt and the Twentieth Century exhibition at the Deutsches Historisches Museum tells the story of the last century through one of its great political thinkers. A German Jew who fled the Nazis, Arendt came to academic prominence amidst the ruins of wartime totalitarianism – a fact that shaped her life’s work. The exhibition includes Arendt’s responses to critical post-war points, like the student protests of the 1960s and the civil rights movement, which are still relevant now. But it’s her writings on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust that, while controversial, have had the most enduring influence, transforming how we understand the nature of evil. Interspersed between the mostly chronological exhibits are video clips from Arendt’s 1964 TV interview with Günter Gaus in which she talks about being German, Jewish and – by then – American with spellbinding eloquence. It’s a real pleasure to watch, and is the highlight of an exhibition in which you encounter a thinker whose work – on politics, morality and identity – can be a guide for today.
