Elf Schaufenster | Gallery

Everybody in Germany knows the “Kunstzeitung”. It’s an art newspaper, which appears monthly. This year the publishing house “Lindinger + Schmid” has its 25th birthday! CONGRATULATIONS!

Kunstzeitung-0046

Lindinger + Schmid celebrates this event with an art and design shop in Berlin. A reason for us, to visit the new store “elf schaufenster”.

Lindinger und Schmid - Eingang-1

It proposes new perspectives on familiar and unfamiliar objects in art, design and fashion, orchestrated in daring thematic ensembles, highlighting and interweaving the common threads in the oeuvre of artists and designers. ELF SCHAUFENSTER’s unique display brings Fine and Applied Arts together in a visually-compelling environment.

The salesroom is like a white cube with a lot of daylight. You can walk around and see different compositions of art, design and fashion like the “Wald”. I love it. Artists such as Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Sisi Wasabi, Cornelia Schleime or Takeshi Sawada are part of this arrangement.

This carpet is designed by Vivienne Westwood. Magnolia on black ground, it looks fantastic!

My favorite object is a wooden lamp by TAF Architects. Simple, natural, honest. “The Wood Lamp was originally designed as a limited edition for an installation for RH Chairs is now put into production by the Danish Company Muuto. The Wood Lamp is also part of the Danish Design Museum,” TAF explains on their homepage.
