SEE ARTWORKS UNFOLD LIVE AT THE UNDERGROUND POP-UP CANVAS BAR

SEE ARTWORKS UNFOLD LIVE AT THE UNDERGROUND POP-UP CANVAS BAR

The tunnels beneath Potsdamer Platz will serve as more than just a transit point this weekend (18.-21.10.2018), when a disused section of the U3 line will be turned into a space for creative experimentation. Selected artists will create works live in front of visitors’ eyes: taking part are Mary Lennox and her incredible floral creations, lettering extraordinaire Stefan Kunz and calligrapher Sigrid Artmann, illustrator and designer Olaf Hajek, paper artist duo Lacy Barry & Cris Wiegandt, aka Crizilla & Delassey, and painter Paul Schrader (who will also host a keynote workshop on 20.10. at 18h.) Having gleaned inspiration from experiencing the artists at work up close, you’re invited to turn your attention to the art of drinking at the “Cocktail Finishing” studio, where you can experiment with flavors and colors to create your own unique twist on the classic Bombay Sapphire gin and tonic at the “tonic wall”. You even have the chance to take the artworks they’ve witnessed being made home with them — each piece will be sold on the final day of the pop-up.

MADE IN CHINA — A DELECTABLE NEW DIM SUM DESTINATION

MADE IN CHINA — A DELECTABLE NEW DIM SUM DESTINATION

In the mood for Xiao Long Bao, tuna in Sichuan pepper sauce, chili wontons, or rice noodle rolls with BBQ pork? You no longer have to head out west to satisfy your cravings for dim sum (bite-sized portions of Chinese cuisine, often fried or steamed). The concept behind Made in China, Xiaofen Fan’s third Berlin restaurant — following Akemi and Ramen x Ramen — which opened on the Mitte-Prenzlauer Berg border in August 2018, stems from the restaurateur’s long-held dream of opening an establishment that showcases the breadth and diversity of traditional Chinese cuisine. An extensive dim sum menu includes a generous vegetarian section (think eggplant with steamed buns and basil, or century eggs with silk tofu), and is supplemented with set menu options and fresh house-made drinks like lychee or jasmine lemonade. A visit is best approached with a hungry entourage in tow. Claim one of the several outdoor tables while this golden autumn drags on, or cozy up inside the jewel-toned interior that blends together old and new Chinese design influences. Just like the food, it’s all about harmonious contrasts, feel-good textures and a warming sense of satisfaction. (Text & photos: Anna Dorothea Ker)

WHERE CREATIVITY MEETS CONTENT & CONNECTIVITY

WHERE CREATIVITY MEETS CONTENT & CONNECTIVITY

Ever wondered how the likes of Wana Limar, Ace Tee, Sara Nuru and Gen Sadakane take great photos — right from their phones? Here’s your chance to find out: From 19.10.-15.11.2018, you’re invited to meet, share with and learn from a round-up of creatives at the top of their game in the temporary Google Pixel Studio in Mitte. Alongside an exclusive preview of the soon-to-be-released Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL (which don’t hit stores until 2.11.2018), a free and varied program of events — from portrait workshops and cooking classes to exhibitions and collection launches — invites you to step inside the creative world that inspired the phones’ creation. (Hint: it’s all about taking exceptional photos from the palm of your hand). Keep an eye on Cee Cee over the coming month for more — we’ll be profiling a selection of our favorite events in upcoming newsletters. Here’s a preview in the meantime.

JASEMIN UYSAL RECOMMENDS: VOM EINFACHEN DAS GUTE

JASEMIN UYSAL RECOMMENDS: VOM EINFACHEN DAS GUTE

Quality over quantity is the principle embodied in Vom Einfachen Das Gute. The focus of this little deli is excellence — as is evidenced by the variety of meats, cheeses, bread, wine and coffee on offer here. Think rare ripened Nero di Parma, Pecorino wrapped in fig leaves, or locally-brewed beer from Flessa Bräu. Owners Manuela Rehn and Jörg Reuter set out to establish the kind of store they themselves would want to shop in — which also led them to host once-monthly culinary evenings, which see the deli’s doors stay open later than usual. Visitors then have the chance to get to know the stories behind the products they’re sampling. Manuela and Jörg often visit the farms and fields from which their delicacies come, which allows them owners to stay close to, and continually support, the young manufacturers and small businesses they work with.

YASUHIRO CÚZE CREATES CERAMICS OF GREAT BEAUTY

YASUHIRO CÚZE CREATES CERAMICS OF GREAT BEAUTY

You might have spotted his smooth white porcelain creations for sale at Nowkoelln Flowmarkt. Or cupped one of his finely-textured bowls in your hands at Shiori or Ernst. From his humble studio in an industrial corner of Britz, Yasuhiro Cúze applies his expert craftsmanship to spinning and hand-forming bowls, cups, vases and sculptural art pieces. Many of them bear his unique take on the traditional Japanese “tobikanna” technique — using the back of a knife to create fine, irregular patterns in the blink of an eyelid. If, like us, you’re too impatient to stumble across his small stand on a Sunday, get in touch for one-of-a-kind creations that make for excellent gifts — as hard as they are to part with.
