Beautiful Things from Others
Hier lassen wir Euch teilhaben an unseren Entdeckungen und Geschichten mit Freunden und kleinen Manufakturen, die allesamt tolle Produkte herstellen.
Romina and Johannes are passionate flea market rummagers, lovers of 1920s industrial design and collectors of old furnishings. They restore old factory lamps so that they keep their charm but are technically up to date. They also always have a small and fine selection of vintage and new home accessories as well as old factory clocks in their shop. It is always a great pleasure to visit them.
Ulrike and Christoph are our direct neighbours and supply us with the most beautiful flowers every week. Since 1992 they have been growing cut flowers, pot plants and herbs in Kloster Zinna/Teltow-Fläming in a controlled organic way. They are in Markthalle 9, at the Chamissomarkt and on Thursdays and Fridays in the shop at Fürbringerstr. 26.
Every week there is a beautiful bouquet of flowers in our shop.
South of Berlin, in Baruth, Karina blows wonderful glass in bright, rich colors. These glasses give us great pleasure at home and every day. Her booth is always a highlight at trade fairs and we simply cannot go home without a glass from Karina.
With her unmistakable and poetic sensitivity, the designer Antje Pugnat tells a story of feminine beauty and subtle sexiness. Antje's collections are something very special. She lives in Berlin and opens her studio once a month - just drop by.
Yes, they still exist, the clogs. The shuffling gait with the clacking of wood is an essential part of them. But Jutta also brings the clogs into today's world and gives them zeitgeist with low-heels, mid-heels and high-heels. It's fun to browse through her collection. We have included Jutta's clogs in the 2021 summer collection.
Seit 1959 fertigt Jutta’s „Clog Maker“ in Südschweden jedes Paar individuell und in Handarbeit – Paar für Paar.
Elke Bartholdy knits extraordinary patterns and wonderful plays of colour. Her knitting technique is innovative and special. She knits digitally in shape, which means "as if by hand", and knots the individual pieces together. Elke has a very beautiful studio in the Bülowbögen in Berlin, well worth a visit.
Sandra und Wulf sind Juwliere. Sie waren jahrelang unsere Standnachbarn auf der IHM in München. Sie haben Glasvitrinen mit Sicherheitsschlössern auf dem Stand. Wenn Kund_innen ein Schmuckstück sehen, anfassen und anprobieren wollen wird aufgeschlossen.
Jeder Stein hat eine Geschichte.
We wouldn't want to miss Natalie's wonderfully soft blankets from her Blanket Store in Frankfurt am Main. We are particularly fond of the blankets with cashmere from Spain. All blankets are made of 100% pure natural fibres and are woven under fair conditions in countries all over the world.
Our friend Bernhard makes wonderfully soft bags out of leather. We both carry a Noto bag - a very small and a very large one, how can it be otherwise ; ) The small Nobiko bag is a space saver and the large Chika bag is like a magic cylinder - everything fits in but not everything comes out again.
Andrea makes glamour for the home. Limoges porcelain - the "white gold" from France - gleaming white, delicate, transparent and yet extremely robust: she shapes every single piece by hand. Gold is always present. That is pure luxury.
Nika Stupica makes fine, light and handy porcelain. Without her cups, the first coffee in the morning is unthinkable. She also makes earrings and wonderful porcelain jewellery. Nika lives with her family near Ljubljana in Slovenia. She travels a lot to fairs and markets, check her out on Instagram and Facebook.
Artshock is Bernd Dreßen from Cologne. He designs his shoes and has them manufactured in a small family business in Italy. The leather is tanned without harmful substances and feels incredibly soft and cozy. We prefer to wear Dido and Medea in bright colors.
Anna works just a few streets away from us. Whenever we need particularly beautiful gifts, we drop by her place. The free-turned porcelain is not only decorative, it is also very robust. So it's not just a decoration to put on the table, it really needs to be used every day.
Die blaue Olga
Tina met Kat Menschik at a reading, because she actually illustrates books, many books. And because Kat is so fast and had the dream of her own jewelry, she designed the blue Olga without further ado. The motifs are from her book illustrations. It all started with Haruki Murakami's Birthday Girl. Tina fell in love with the sailor Oleg who is now hanging around her neck.
Andreas Kern makes dance shoes like his father Werner Kern and for a few years now "Kerns Paare"- shoes for the street. The shoes are made in a family business in Italy, sustainably and fairly. When Nuremberg is on the way, we often make a stop and dance around the shop in the latest models.
Julia M. Langstein from Hanover makes carpets. We got to know her better at the TIM in Augsburg. Julia paints with yarn, she makes individually, she makes one-offs. She stands on a lifting platform and “staples” the threads onto the “canvas” with a compressor and only one needle.
Those who know us have also heard of Marianna Deri. We love her and her collections. We love to wear the blouses, they go perfectly with our trousers. She designs the large and unusual prints of her skirts herself, they have become her trademark.
Indnat is Marcus Priester. He stands for the design, manufacture and sale of made-to-measure trousers. With roots in Munich, he now lives in Girona near Barcelona. He is specialised in organic fabrics and has developed a sophisticated system to make trousers to measure without direct contact.
Ulrich Welter founded this Berlin manufactory over 30 years ago. He devoted himself with great passion to the development of innovative wall coverings. Ulrich has already decorated an Oscar ceremony with “super bling bling wallpaper”. The murals are made in the Bülowbögen in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Mr. Schaumlöffel makes, as he says, “inspired products” with his partners and that's true. We visited Georg in his shop in Bamberg. In collaboration with craftsmen, he makes hats, shirts, trousers and even loungers he has designed himself. Georg is curious and has lots of ideas - no way is too far for him. He travels to Japan for hand-woven fabrics and to Russia for felted shoes.
Pension für Produkte
Angela Schlösser from Hamburg makes everyday life beautiful and funny. We love the wooden boards with branded motifs, the kitchen aprons and the toiletry bag with goosebumps. Angela has funny ideas, she produces and sells design products - check out the website for even more beautiful prospects ...
Katy Jung works in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. She burns white porcelain with fine lines. “The demanding material demands all the attention and the time it takes. Nothing is rushed or can be sped up." Katy's cups are incredibly easy to hold and almost feel "soft". We don't want to miss them anymore.
Glass design handmade - or rather, hand-blown in Karlsruhe. These are the "softest and finest" glasses we have ever held in our hands. Each glass has its very own shape and a glowing drop in the middle. Star gastronomy has discovered Borosi-Glas for himself or Michael has discovered star gastronomy for his product - that is more likely.
Julia Lipinsky is a close friend of Yvonne, she lives in Berlin. Julia works, develops and designs textile bodies, shapes and objects. Julia can do everything 4-dimensionally. From functional objects to artistic works - monsters - eagles - butterflies - giant flowers - sewn nudes - ... - ...
We couldn't get past these lamps - Yvonne has a yellow and Tina a green kitchen lamp from Stefi. Stefanie Treiber refines high-quality enamel lamps from old factory stocks with gold and copper patina into impressive individual pieces. When you're not moderating at WDR, she makes these wonderful lamps.
"How with the grandmother and her own olives and us, with our flat idea, could become reality" The touching story is told in detail by Amadeus and Marc on their website. Their green olive oil is the best, really! Put the oil in a bowl, put salt and pepper on it and soak it up with white bread....indescribably good! In the meantime, the oil is sold in many organic markets throughout Germany.
