Only spent a couple of days there but loved it. The streets are beautiful, everything seems to quite organized, the people are friendly enough, there are really nice cafés, restaurants and shops everywhere. Basically it is a place I would not mind living for a couple of years. The weather is quite cold, the summer almost does not exist but I don’t really like really warm weather either. Just sad we missed the tulip season. Can’t wait to go back and see more of what the city has to offer.

Great museum in Berlin devoted to contemporary art, mostly installation. Had a temporary exhibition on Bruce Nauman at the time. A great one to visit if you don’t have the time or the patience to go to every museum in the city.

Hotel Maison Moschino

In Clothes, Designers, Food, Hotels on August 21, 2010 at 11:38 am

Built in 1840 the building was a former railway station that was converted into an extraordinary estate. The rooms are sort of themed and have hints of the Moschino heritage. The cushions are amazing, the pastry chandelier, the ball gown beds I particularly like the images of the food presented here. Looks like the perfect place to spend a weekend,  live a short fairytale and dream away from reality.

100 Chairs in 100 Days

In Designers, Product Design on August 20, 2010 at 10:21 am

An amazing project executed by Martino Gamper in 2007. He actually did 100 chairs in 100 days. The chairs were all made of old pieces or parts of chairs that had been thrown away. Basically scrap. The combinations can lead to quite surprising forms. And I’m guessing that seeing them in the exhibition must be quite grand. With a dose of imagination and piles of what could be rubbish this idea is quite inspiring. Next time you think about throwing furniture away think again.

Hand Crafted

In Designers, Product Design on August 20, 2010 at 10:15 am

Kevin Krumnikl makes the most beautiful hand crafted furniture I have seen in a while. The pieces have simple lines, are extremely functional and look strong and solid. One of these pieces would definitely change the dynamics of a whole room. Love the table with the places for the laptop and the magazines, as well as the record player piece. Actually I really like all the pieces featured here. Great work from a great craftsman.
