SOBER — SKINCARE MADE FOR MEN

SOBER — SKINCARE MADE FOR MEN

In a skincare industry largely catered towards women, men may struggle to find skincare products uniquely suited to their skin’s needs. Berlin-based brand Sober has taken this head-on. Founded by Simon Schier and Philipp Roth in 2017 and motivated by “honest and effective skincare for men,” the brand has developed a line of products covering skincare, shaving, and fragrances. The gentle cleansers and moisturizers are made from consciously-sourced ingredients to reinvigorate sensitive or stressed skin during these cold winter months. All Sober products are free from parabens, nanoparticles, and artificial fragrances. Even the brown frosted glass bottles match the high quality of the formulas. Find the ones that match your skin type in person at their pop-up box in Bikini Berlin or order from their online store. (Text: Michael Rice / Photos: Sober)

FUNCTIONAL SWEDISH STYLE: GRANIT OPENS IN SCHÖNEBERG

FUNCTIONAL SWEDISH STYLE: GRANIT OPENS IN SCHÖNEBERG

What if decorating your apartment for the festive season could double as investing in practical, beautiful objects you can use all year around? This is the idea at Granit this December. The considered homeware brand — which has slowly but steadily been expanding south since being founded in Stockholm in 1997 — abides by the principle of aesthetic function. In the words of Granit’s Europe and Franchise Manager, Katarina Grapengiesser, ”we always strive to see the functionality in something and are super happy if we find a dual purpose. Our range should not only be super practical, but add aesthetic value. We are neutral in both our materials and our colors, which makes allows objects fit in all kinds of homes.” Following locations in Mitte, Charlottenburg, and recently, the new East Side Mall, Schönebergers are the latest Berlin denizens to be graced with a convenient Granit outpost. With a product range encompassing kitchenware, gardening, storage, textiles and even clothing and body care, it’s hard to come away empty-handed. (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: Granit)

ARS ELECTRONICA INVESTIGATES THE ART OF IMPERFECTION

ARS ELECTRONICA INVESTIGATES THE ART OF IMPERFECTION

“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: you haven’t”. Those are the motivating words of Thomas A. Edison, whose wisdom on failure provided the inspiration behind art, tech and society platform Ars Electronica’s upcoming digital media exhibition, “Error — The Art of Imperfection“. On view from 17.11.2018 at Drive. Volkswagen Group Forum — as part of an ongoing collaboration between the two innovators — the group show presents a range of cutting-edge interactive machines, video works and innovative sound installations. Each work explores the idea of deviations from the norm, taking the concept of “failure” beyond its common association with start-up land jargon to question how non-judgmental approaches to the idea of “error” can improve our lives both on a personal and global level. From visual forensics and AI to bitcoin miners and robotics, this show offers a much-needed positive outlook for the future, one tentative iteration at a time.

HAY FOR SONOS — CRISP SOUND IN A FRESH COLOR PALETTE

HAY FOR SONOS — CRISP SOUND IN A FRESH COLOR PALETTE

You don’t have to be a synesthete to embrace the connection between color and sound, though a little help from design experts doesn’t hurt. Sonos has teamed up with Danish design darlings Hay to launch a limited edition set of five Sonos One speakers in tones as rich as those coming out of them. The color options (Pale Yellow, Light Grey, Soft Pink, Forest Green and Vibrant Red), were selected from the Hay palette 2018, designed to add a jolt of eye-catching contrast to any room — and provide the seamless sound experience ensured by the Alexa-integrated Sonos One speaker. Test them out for yourself tonight at a launch celebration at Sonos Store Berlin, where local artists Quintessenz have created a custom installation that will be accompanied by NTS-curated “Sound of Color” mixes, as well as drinks and finger food — plus the chance to take your favorite color straight home with you. RSVP here. (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: Sonos)

INDULGE YOUR GOURMET WANDERLUST WITH SALT & SILVER

INDULGE YOUR GOURMET WANDERLUST WITH SALT & SILVER

It’s around this time of year when wanderlust starts to set in — dreams of sandy beaches, crashing waves and exotic flavours playing on our minds. For a shot of travel and cooking inspiration without leaving the city, head to Google Pixel Studio this Saturday (10.11.) where amateur chefs and avid travellers-turned-restauranteurs, Salt & Silver (aka Jo and Cozy) will be telling the story of their year-long travels through Latin America, during which they shot documentary films and published surf-inspired cookbooks. Upon their return to Hamburg, they opened a (now two-part) Mexican-Peruvian restaurant to share the flavors and cooking techniques they picked up along the way. Berliners will be lucky enough to get a taste on Saturday, too — after a talk and cookbook presentation, they’ll reveal the secret to making their famous guacamole. Prepare for your mouth to water — and for your feet to itch. (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: Google Pixel, Salt & Silver)
