FUN AND FUNKY HOMEWARE DESIGNS AND VINTAGE OBJECTS — PODIUM X FRIENDS CHRISTMAS MARKET AT H&M MITTE GARTEN

It’s the Christmas shopping classic: you go out to buy gifts for your loved ones and end up with a bag of goodies for yourself. But don’t feel bad – just get yourself down to the Podium X Friends Christmas Market this weekend (18 & 19.12.2021) where we’re pretty certain you’ll find the perfect pressies for your besties. The event is hosted by vintage collectors Luisa and Sonja at Podium who, besides showing off their own retro homewares, are inviting a bunch of their designer friends to bring their creations. The location for the market is the outdoor area at H&M Mitte Garten, a shop and event space that occupies the ground floor of a beautiful Altbau just off Hackescher Markt. The designs on show are fresh and unconventional – not least the plates, vases and cups from Studio Roi, whose mission is to celebrate the female anatomy.

Other highlights for the home include the wavy mirrors and candleholders from Lisa Land or, if you want to give the gift of a new hobby, the candle making and needlepoint kits from The Good Kit. Foodies meanwhile should check out the otherworldly cakes from Eliza Mozer and the Aussie wines from Pét Shop. But it’s not just about the shopping: you’ll also want to soak up the festive vibes with mulled wine, vegan hot dogs and a music line-up that includes daily DJ sets by Catelle and an acoustic gig on Saturday night from Jonny Mahoro. And once you’ve got your gifts sorted, you can head inside Mitte Garden: a high-concept H&M flagship where you can browse curated womenswear, third-party brands and vintage pieces. So treat yourself – we won’t tell anyone…
