Leaving the carefree days of summer behind us, we’re now entering the cosy and contemplative part of the year. Shorts, sandals and laid-back laughter are being swapped for coats, scarves and focused concentration. It’s going to take more than a scoop of ice cream to get us out of the house these days. Anyone prepared to venture outside when it’s grey, rainy and cold obviously has something more challenging in mind.
Whenever we’re seeking inspiration or just want to get our creative juices flowing, we head out into the city. As you will have already heard, 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus school of design. Timeless, iconic design and the ‘form follows function’ theory can be admired with your own eyes on a stroll around Berlin’s streets. But you’ll also find great design here at BIKINI BERLIN, such as these handpicked artefacts, which we’ve creatively arranged into an inspiring composition for your aesthetic pleasure.
What a unique shape! What an interesting choice of colours! Our thoughts might be wandering elsewhere, but for some reason they always return to home. What would this vase by VooWest look like on my window sill? And wouldn’t those Hay boxes make the ideal storage solution?

But before we get carried away with ourselves, we shouldn’t forget to see the fun in things. We cordially invite you to allow your creativity to unfold, to try things on (and out!) as you please and to make sure you’re getting more than just mental sustenance. The culinary delights at our Kantini food market will keep you going through the winter months. But that’s a whole different (newsletter) topic…
In celebration of Berlin Design Week 2019, the design market "Design Pool" will take place for the first time from 10th - 12th of October at BIKINI BERLIN. This market is the only official point of sale of the Berlin Design Week and offers exhibitors, designers and brands the opportunity to present and sell their products in a location that is as unique as Berlin is for design, fashion and contemporary art.
