ANNELIES — NEW FLAVOR DIRECTIONS IN ALL DAY BRUNCH

ANNELIES — NEW FLAVOR DIRECTIONS IN ALL DAY BRUNCH

As satisfying as classic breakfast menu staples can be, taking the plunge into the unknown to sample something unfamiliar makes for a Sunday morning well spent. In Kreuzberg, the amiable team behind Distrikt Coffee: Sophie Hardy, Hannes Haake and Matthew Maue have recently opened their second café, Annelies. Their concept is as smart as it is simple: using seasonal and regional produce, they pair familiar ingredients with unusual ones to create novel and delightfully different flavors. Like blueberry granola with beetroot and creamy yoghurt. Or a smoked egg yolk with a dash of elderflower as sauce for drizzling over asparagus. Not only do the dishes taste delicious, but they look it, too — exquisitely prepared with great attention to detail, just like Annelies’ stylish interior. (Text: Lisa Staub / Photos: Pamina Aichhorn)

ANATOMIEFLEUR — AN AVANT GARDE APPROACH TO FLORAL ART

ANATOMIEFLEUR — AN AVANT GARDE APPROACH TO FLORAL ART

There are flowers that delight, and there are flowers that stop you in your tracks and prompt you to reconsider notions of romance. The latter variety is what Amandine Cheveau and Jean-Christian Pullin, the duo behind Anatomiefleur, deal in. From bespoke bouquets for private clients to high fashion editorials, the pair furthers a “poetic dialogue between flowers, art, and space”, transforming floral arrangements into sculptures infused with symbolism. It’s likely you’ve encountered Anatomiefleur’s work around town — Amandine and Jean-Christian work with Ernst, created Gallery Weekend installations at the likes of Boros Collection and König Gallery and have collaborated with performance artist Bendik Giske at KW, amongst many other projects. From their light-flooded, minimal showroom at Strausberger Platz’s historic Haus Berlin, Anatomiefleur continues to go from strength to strength. Keep an eye out for more of their subversive floral romanticism, soon to be seen in Gruppe and Nuda Paper. And when you’re in the market for a next-level bouquet, you know who to call.

NOLAN KEITH PARKER RECOMMENDS: FUNKHAUS

NOLAN KEITH PARKER RECOMMENDS: FUNKHAUS

The crowning jewel of Berlin’s vast array of eclectic venues and a growing force in the arena of sound design, Funkhausis a space to be taken in and appreciated time and again. Further east than the clubs and parties of Friedrichshain on the sleepy banks of the River Spree, the historic halls of Funkhaus were initially constructed in the 1950s. The 50,000m2 campus began its story as the radio headquarters of the former GDR, and to this day has maintained its original beauty and minute attention to detail. Warm woods and mid-century design abound in “Saal 1″ and the newly-christened “Living Room” space, while harsh brutalism commands attention in the site-specific 4DSound space, Monom. Also home to Nils Frahm’s recording studio, Funkhaus is rich in visual and emotional power, not asking anything more of its visitors than to be present when in its halls. Upcoming and recommended experiences: Andy Stott (29.6.2018), People Festival (18-20.8.2018) and Aphex Twin (1.11.2018). Go early and have dinner at the recently-opened second branch of Zola as the sun sets over the river for a Berlin evening at its sultry best. (Text: Nolan Keith Parker / Photos: Nino Valpiani)

TROPEZ — POOLSIDE ART AT SOMMERBAD HUMBOLDTHAIN

TROPEZ — POOLSIDE ART AT SOMMERBAD HUMBOLDTHAIN

Our favorite Freibad this summer is much more than just a pool: For the second year running, Tropez has taken over Sommerbad Humboldthain to create a space for art, music, debate and relaxation. Alongside the permanent “Voyage” exhibition, the varied program (led by Nele Heinevette) brings together the likes of Aurora Sander, Bob’s Pogo Bar and Broken Dimanche Press to infuse your bathing sessions with an intellectual challenge or two. Coming up this Saturday (23.6.2018) is Creamcake’s second edition of “Europool“, a panel discussion on “Perspectives on a more Plural Europe”, which brings together sociological, legal, artistic and activist perspectives on the question of reshaping Europe together. Pack your bathing suit, spare change (Tropez also doubles as a kiosk, with top notch pommes frites) and an open mind — we’ll see you poolside.
