    Vitra & Artek + Studio Ilse = Super Sweet Installation at Vitrahaus!

    16th May

    The first – and smokin’ hot – installation and collaboration between Vitra + Artek recently opened at VitraHaus loft in Weil am Rhein. Officially joining forces in 2013 after Vitra acquired Artek, the two furniture companies enlisted the help of Ilse Crawford of Studio Ilse who created a glorious space to introduce the union of the two brands. Rather than simply display their products alongside each other, the shared brand is introduced in the form of a story: an imaginary home of a fictitious Finnish-German couple, Harri and Astrid.



    25hours Bikini Hotel by Studio Aisslinger // Berlin, Germany.

    16th April

    In the heart of Berlin’s City West district, wildlife and city life coexist within the shadows of the 25hours Hotel. Part of the Bikini Berlin redevelopment project, this historic building—an important example of post-war modernism—serves as an urban oasis for visitors and locals alike. Housed in the Kleines Hochhaus, which forms a part of the iconic Bikini Berlin, the hotel has preserved or restored the original 1950s architecture wherever possible.

    Gamsei Cocktail Bar by Buero Wagner // Munich, Germany.

    7th March

    Never mind the fact we initially thought this was an interior of a milk-bar (rather than an artisan cocktail bar of alcoholic variety), the beautifully crafted space is a little jewellery box carefully designed, resolved and detailed within an inch of it’s life. The Munich bar interior, designed by Fabian A. Wagner of Buero Wagner with Andreas Kreft, pays tribute to the local Bavarian culture and craftsmanship.



    Hanna Krüger Transforms Rosenthal Porcelain into Lamps & Vases.

    6th March

    The ‘Pila’ series, meaning ‘pile’ in italian is a unique and unconventional assemblage of different plates by German designer Hanna Krüger from the Rosenthal Studio Line. The design ‘Pila’ stacks china plates and transforms them into vases and lamps with reference from everyday life – where plate piles are created for pragmatic reasons, for washing up in the sink or stashed in the cupboard. The design also demonstrates that the clash of forms, stories and time can develop a completely new aesthetic dimension.
