Die allgemeine Stimmung des Internationalen Design Festivals

Standard

Ok, so I have to do this, this is the idea of having a blog, blabbering about stuffies and „how wonderful it is that…“.

Joke put aside, the DMY International Design Festival 2013 was truly a very nice first contact with the design world in Berlin.

How wonderful is it that…

… this year was the Polish Design Focus and serendipity worked its force again since I was just „reading “ „Maus“.

… and there was a DJ because, yes, we are in Berlin, where everybody is a DJ, has a friend who is a DJ, will someday become a DJ, dated a DJ, just spotted a DJ

… there was a bench with the most beautiful shades of blue and a fantastic (yes, I did employ that word and no, I am not giving it up) pattern

… a some-kind-of-where-the-wild-things-are fluffy monster could have been kicked or hugged but he would put a fight when you got close to the little ones

… I shamelessly took a picture of myself in the mirror and the person who was on my right copied me because he thought there was something special happening to the mirror when being photographed?

You may have thought there is no such thing as the purest form of bicycle. Silly you, you just hadn’t yet laid your pretty eyes on… “Let’s sprint”, a concept design for a fixed-gear bicycle, positioning itself as the purest form of bicycle, shorn of all unnecessary parts.

Always had a thingie for bikes. Since my first red Pegasus, I’ve always imagined myself on the streets of Paris wearing a rouge bonnet, red Chanel lipstick and riding a matching red bike.
