CHARGE UP ON E-MOBILITY KNOWLEDGE — START TO DRIVE ELECTRIC

CHARGE UP ON E-MOBILITY KNOWLEDGE — START TO DRIVE ELECTRIC

If lithium-ion cells, AC fast charging and regenerative braking sound like a foreign language to you, then it’s time to wise up on e-mobility. Soon all your road journeys will be electrically powered, so it’s only right to get informed about this alternative energy. The “Start to Drive Electric” exhibition, opening on 12.03.2020 at the Drive Volkswagen Group Forum on Friedrichstraße, is your highway to this knowledge. Packed with interactive displays showing the cutting edge in four-wheeled technology, it promises immersive learning that’s the opposite to a session on Wikipedia. The highlight is The Accelerator, a 360 degree walk-in cinema where you learn about e-mobility not just with facts and figures, but feelings and emotions too. Besides showing you the underlying tech, the exhibition also hosts discussions on topics like driving feel and design, as well as practical advice on charging and vehicle range. And for those heading to the opening night, there will be a special musical treat to get things shifted into higher gear. Welcome to the electric era. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: VW Drive)

BERLINALE LOUNGE: MASTERCLASSES, TALKS AND MORE — RIGHT NEXT TO THE RED-CARPET GLITZ AND GLAMOUR

BERLINALE LOUNGE: MASTERCLASSES, TALKS AND MORE — RIGHT NEXT TO THE RED-CARPET GLITZ AND GLAMOUR

The city is once again abuzz with cineasts hoping to catch some films and maybe a glimpse of a famous face – we’ve heard Willem Dafoe might make an appearance – at the 70th edition of the Berlinale. And while it’s all about the films – and the competition for the Golden Bear – there’s a lot more to the 11-day gala, with mind-broadening masterclasses, engaging conversations on media and special events to check out. Mere steps away from the red carpet at Potsdamer Platz, the Audi Berlinale Lounge is a hub for all that. Everyone can join in the Berlin Open House program, from budding filmmakers to casual movie lovers. The days start with energizing morning yoga classes followed by panel discussions, workshops and talks with industry gurus on topics like sustainability in film and how to self-market your skills in the industry. After a hard day watching films, you can drop by for a cocktail as musicians, DJs and open mic sessions provide the entertainment. The open lounge is the perfect spot to sit back and let the festival wash over you. (Text: Andreea Dragos / Fotos: Benjamin Diedering für Audi, Simon Hegenberg)

We’re giving away a pair of tickets to each of the Lounge Nights including Lui Hill, 26.02., Silent Party, 27.02., and FIVA MC, 28.02. Email us at win@ceecee.cc for a chance to win.

ONLINE AND ONSITE — DISCOVER AND SHOP FRESH DESIGNS AT FREIRAUM

ONLINE AND ONSITE — DISCOVER AND SHOP FRESH DESIGNS AT FREIRAUM

Scrolling through my social media feeds, I’m always discovering new designers, makers and curators that tickle my fancy. But when it comes to these smaller young brands, I often have to buy the products “blind” off their websites. Here’s an idea though: what if you could sit on that new chair or test out that untried hand cream before taking the leap? Well that’s the idea behind Freiraum, a new shop concept on Friedrichstraße that collects pieces from up and coming online boutiques and showcases them for you to see, feel and test in person. The brands available read like a who’s who of top innovators and visionaries in the fashion, design and cosmetic worlds. Besides local names like father and son menswear team Tom Àdam and Shanghai Tofu with their spunky shirts and accessories, you’ll find international designers like Barcelona-based M2Malletier with their minimalist, surreal bags, and sustainably-made garments from Henriette von Grünberg. After trying out it’s time for the cool part: just scan the product’s QR-Code, pay, and your stuff is sent right to your door. 2020 is the year of bricks and clicks.

THE CITY IS YOUR GYM WITH URBAN SPORTS CLUB

Do you spend your life criss-crossing town like us? Luckily your workout doesn’t have to take a hit with Urban Sports Club, which turns the whole city into your fitness playground. Headquartered in Berlin and now Europe-wide, the flat-rate sports membership club allows you to explore over 50 sports and activities across hundreds of studios in the city, for a fitness routine that brings you from Neukölln to Moabit and everywhere in between. Our 2020 fitness trend is for short but effective workouts and we take the chance to train wherever we find ourselves: like the 45-minute power cycling class at Beat81, for an energy boost when passing through Friedrichshain. On social visits to Kreuzberg, our favorite stop to get our feet off the ground is the pole dancing classes at Soul Flight by Moritzplatz. And after Sunday brunch in Neukölln, it’s the perfect time for some wellness with a session at Hotpod Yoga Berlin, a multisensory take on classic hot yoga. Getting our new year fitness goals, one Kiez at a time. (Text: Faye Valentine / Photos: Urban Sports Club & Stefan Haehnel)

STREET ART MEETS FASHION: EXCLUSIVE STYLES FROM BERLIN-BASED ARTIST STOHEAD

STREET ART MEETS FASHION: EXCLUSIVE STYLES FROM BERLIN-BASED ARTIST STOHEAD

Fashion Week used to be an exclusive event for invited guests, but for 2020 it’s a good opportunity for all of us to bring a bit of glamour to this gray January. Best example: a flying visit to KaDeWe to check out an exclusive collection which earns the tag “Created in Berlin” twice over. Streetart creator Christoph Hässler aka Stohead has designed a collection for the Friedrichshain-based fashion label Liebeskind Berlin. Stohead is best known for his eye-catching typographic visuals, and it is precisely these textual forms that make the Liebeskind pieces into true statements, with the message “Move” emblazoned on tote bags, belt bags, straps and wallets. Ready to make the move? Don’t wait: the creations are available exclusively in Berlin for Fashion Week at stockists including KaDeWe and the Liebeskind Berlin Stores in Mitte, at the Alexa and the Mall of Berlin as well as online.
