ALLBIRDS: SIMPLE, SUSTAINABLE AND SERIOUSLY COMFORTABLE

ALLBIRDS: SIMPLE, SUSTAINABLE AND SERIOUSLY COMFORTABLE

Sustainable shopping is more than a buzzword and for 2020 it’s time to get serious about where your coin goes. Enter AllBirds, the sleek, sustainable shoe label from San Francisco who recently opened their first German store in Mitte. Bright and minimal, the shop has chairs customised by local collective Old Yellow, and fun Berlin-inspired laces in shades like “currywurst red”, which are free to take home. The environment is central to AllBirds – from the premium natural materials down to the recycled shoe boxes that line the till area. The shoes are made from sustainably-sourced Merino wool, eucalyptus, castor beans and recycled plastic, and other brands are encouraged to adopt the Sweetfoam open-source technology in their carbon negative sole material. All this without sacrificing on style or comfort – speaking of which, see for yourself if you agree with Time magazine that they’re the “world’s most comfortable shoe”. They’re washable, super soft, and since wool is antibacterial and moisture wicking, you can wear them without socks. Sustainability, one step at a time. (Text: Emily Miotke / Photos: AllBirds)

A SHINING SPECTACLE: LIGHT ART SPACE & REFIK ANADOL

A SHINING SPECTACLE: LIGHT ART SPACE & REFIK ANADOL

What happens when art merges with science, and light itself becomes the artist’s medium? Entering the giant turbine hall of Kraftwerk Berlin for Refik Anadol’sexhibition “Latent Being”, you see it revealed: an otherworldly audiovisual experience, astounding in its depth and scale. Presented as an immersive journey through four chapters, this is data-driven art, using machine intelligence as well as visitors’ movements to create ever changing digital “paintings”. This dazzling work marks the launch of the Light Art Space (LAS), a foundation dedicated to the connections between art, new technologies and science. Alongside the light show is LAS+, an interdisciplinary program featuring a multimedia show from Berlin-based duo Amnesia Scanner(30.11.2019, 21h) and AI-influenced sounds from composer, musician and sound artist Holly Herndon, performing together with long-time collaborator Mathew Dryhurst (06.12.2019, 21h). Together, the three works show you the cutting edge of man-machine artistry.

START THE CELEBRATION SEASON WITH TABLES FOR 2

Looking for an excuse to go out on a Wednesday night? Well we’ve got a party giving you a solid reason for a midweek spell on the dancefloor. The name: Tables for 2 – a dance music night that pairs two DJs who have never performed together to share the decks for the night. Now for the final edition of this innovative mix-up series, bookers have assembled the best line-up to date: Kowe Six from Moonbootica, who have blown away musical boundaries with their five albums and worldwide shows, consistently delivering thrilling, original electronic music. In the DJ booth he’ll be joined by Franziskus Sell, one half of Format:B, whose 15-year back catalog of successful releases has seen them forge their own signature genre: MotorFunk-Sound. These two class acts will be teaming up to take over Kreuzberg’s Night Embassy for a back-to-back set that will leave no musical genre unexplored. This is a rave that will power you through the rest of the week and the months beyond (Text: Andreea Dragos / Photos: Julia Schoierer for Jägermeister)
