berlin based publishing company die gestalten opens a 350 sqm. store + gallery in the sophie-gips-höfe in mitte. “the space” is definitely worth a visit – we did already and left with heavy bags and a lot inspiration!
what you can find in the sapce is the whole range of die gestalten publications, but what’s more interesting – you might be lucky in finding some rare archive copies as well. for those not in the mood for books (although resisting might be difficult here), the shop also sells selected and thematically-arranged products by designers and artists featured in their publications. Artecnica, FriendsWithYou, Ineke Hans, Jaime Hayon, Medicom Toys, Parkhaus Filz, Presspop, Qubus, Saskia Diez, Tichelaar Makkum, Tokidoki, and Torafu Architects are just a few to name.
Doubling as a platform for exchanging ideas and further enriching and fostering emerging creative processes at the nexus of design and art, the gallery (part of the space) will offer an engaging program of exhibitions, lectures, and surprise events.
