Raw Edges
Raw Edges

A Marriage of Work & Life Littered haphazardly with wood cuttings and blue prints—all the necessary tools needed for conceptualizing creative ideas—the small North London studio is the backdrop to Shay Alkalay and Yael Mer’s designs that run the gamut from cork lamps to plaid benches for their label, Raw Edges. In a partnership that […]

Stronger Space
Stronger Space

With the rise of the figure of the freelance curator, curating has ventured out of the museum into galleries and beyond—to the extent that those who take themselves to be on the very edge of hip go so far as to claim that they “curate” menus and music playlists. Architecture writer and curator Carson Chan […]

Three to Watch
Three to Watch

The only constant about the artistic landscape in Berlin is that nothing stays the same. Sure, there are common practices in the city: a rich culture of artist-run project spaces, hybrid/mixed-used venues and an unusually high concentration of artists who regularly DJ. However, mostly due to the financial precarity of earning a living here, it’s […]

 Into the Abyss
 Into the Abyss

48 Hours in Berlin It’s 6p.m. on Saturday and my boss, a 50 yr-old Canadian art dealer, has turned on the techno music, filling the gallery with deafening electro-beats. This announces his plan for the evening: it’s his ritual warm-up before heading to Berghain, Berlin’s most hedonistic nightclub. I’ll probably wind up there too, but […]

Erik Spiekermann
Erik Spiekermann

It was Erik Spiekermann himself who said, “Typography is like air. We only notice it when it’s bad.” And it’s true, while we are surrounded by design everyday—because design is part of living itself—seldom do we notice its intricacy or how integral it is to our day-to-day existence. Look closely and its patterns will reveal […]

Metal Mother
Metal Mother

“I don’t like fluffy music,” says Tara Tati, the woman who records as Metal Mother. “I like music with a dark, elemental core. That’s why I chose Metal Mother as the name for my project. It’s not a reference to heavy metal, although I love that kind of music; it’s about the mother that lives […]

Hush Hush
Hush Hush

Imagine Midnite Vultures-era Beck using the word ‘panties’ with a straight face. Now imagine him about a foot taller with a six inch beard. Berlin-based Hush Hush (aka Christopher Kline) frenetically writhes atop salacious dirty pop beats on his 2010 release Oh God and his forthcoming 12” Ooze. And he’s not afraid to sing without […]

Magnetic Man
Magnetic Man

The press in England is currently hyping dubstep, a mix of dub reggae, grime, garage, classic rave, techno and soul, as the most innovative sound to come out of British dance clubs in a decade. Magnetic Man, a trio of producers and songwriters from Croydon—ground zero for the dubstep movement—are currently the face of dubstep, […]

RYAT
RYAT

All bands dream of creating sounds that can’t be pigeonholed. Philadelphia’s RYAT (pronounced riot) has done it with an innovative blend of electronica, jazz, pop and modern experimental music. Their dense asymmetric rhythmic textures, swirling multi-layered vocals, unexpected shifts in tempo and cryptic lyrics, produce music that inhabits an intoxicating twilight zone between sweet dreams […]

Wim Wenders
Wim Wenders

On using new technology, the challenges of capturing dance onscreen and the hope for 3D as a tool for future cinematic travel. Among the world’s greatest filmmakers, Wim Wenders has persistently resisted easy categorization. One of the leading representatives of New German Cinema in the 1970s, he also has to his credit a $20 million […]

NYC: May/June 2011

1. What’s your favorite item of clothing you are wearing and where is it from? 2. If you were visiting NYC and you could inhabit anywhere you wanted to in the city, where would you stay? 3. If you could time travel, what year would you go to? 4. What’s your favorite place to travel […]

Maria Francesca Pepe | Maria Francesca Pepe has been leading the pack of jewelry designers for quite some time. She has become such a widespread phenomenon, that her name alone is synonymous with incredible pieces of great design details. Born in Foggia, in the south of Italy, she moved into fashion design after completing a […]

Changing The World Through Design Taking things apart to create something new is not unheard of in the world of design. In fact, recycling is very much part of everyday life for designers and artists, who strive to turn the old into something innovative, both aesthetically and functionally. Following this simple, unspoken rule, Chilean-born artist […]

Space Lab
Space Lab

We crowd our big cities and so they expand. Unbound and frontierless, new buildings, subdivisions and freeway infrastructures swell the urban landscape upward and outward. Meanwhile, as people flood the Metropolis, neighboring towns and smaller cities are drying out, losing population and in turn industry, culture, civic pride, character… Raumlabor, an architecture team based in […]

Rebecca Welsh & Halo

HALO, the Kansas City based non-profit that offers guidance, counseling and art therapy for hundreds of orphans around the world, was founded by a determined young woman who, before dedicating her life to helping poverty stricken children, was an actress, model and world-champion Taekwondo practitioner. Rebecca Neuenswander Welsh, said founder, credits the success she achieved […]

Word Play

Periodic Browsing Today’s bookshops increasingly focus on their periodicals, stocking a curated selection of constantly changing contents that keep things fresh and inspire customers to return. Motto is one of the city’s newest and most comprehensive stops for periodic enticements. Opened in December 2008 in an old frame factory in Kreuzberg, the wood-paneled shop jams […]

Berlin Street Food Classics
Berlin Street Food Classics

What the hot dog stand is to New York, the Imbiss is to Berlin. Housed in little huts on the sidewalk, Imbissbuden sell cheap to-go snacks for only a few euros. Since they began, Imbiss have been meeting points for all walks of life: young, old, rich, poor, academics, proletarians, creatives, yuppies and club kids. […]

Henne

In a city where the only constant is that everything is constantly changing, you have to respect an establishment that has not only survived 100 years, but remains so busy that reservations are always strongly recommended. Is it the food or the romance of how the bar-turned-restaurant’s history intertwines with the city of Berlin that […]

CHIPPS
CHIPPS

It’s 8 p.m. on a Thursday night when my partner and I step into CHIPPS on Jägerstraße. The first thing that catches our eye is the restaurant’s centerpiece: a large open kitchen with an attached salad bar filled with fresh ingredients. We are quickly seated at a wooden table next to one of the panoramic […]

.HBC
.HBC

There is a certain mayhem to .HBC, the eclectic, multi-story, hybrid art, cinema and dining space located in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz. In keeping with Berlin’s fetish for recycling and the barely-renovated chic of its bars, this former East Berlin Hungarian Cultural Center remains office-esque. Hipsters in high heels cannot click-clack across the old carpet and lino […]

Erik Lorincz
Erik Lorincz

Taking after his illustrious bartending predecessors such as Ada Coleman, creator of the “Hanky-Panky,” and Harry Craddock, creator of the “White Lady,” the 31-year-old, Slovakia-born Erik Lorincz took the reins as the head bartender of the world-renown American Bar for the October 10, 2010 reopening of The Savoy, the iconic London hotel, after its three […]
