Sparkling Braun Juicer

Braun Design is the Best

Braun products are the best! A fine example of that fact is the juicer below. This kitchen machine is the Braun Multipress Automatic MP 80Type 4290 Juice Extractor, to be exact. We think this is a design by Dieter Rams from the 1990s. (if not we’ll let you know). Anyways we, at Mimi Berlin HQ, are still very happy with this vegetable juicer. We even use it now and then.

Made In Amsterdam-Noord Photography for IJmagazine

IJmagazine

IJmagazine is a printed ‘glossy’ magazine about Amsterdam-Noord, well, it’s actually printed on beautiful matte paper. By ‘glossy’ we mean that the content is very high-end in means of lay-out, photography and stories. Inside this second issue you will find a photo-series by Mimi Berlin and JW Kaldenbach. We made an alternative shopping-editorial on things ‘made’ and ‘collected’ in Amsterdam-Noord.

Amsterdam Noord

Furthermore the magazine shows hot-spots, interior styling, architectural pieces in Noord, and most important: newly build homes, as in buildings for sale in the Northern part of Amsterdam, across from the city-center near the IJ waterfront.

IJmagazine is for sale

The IJmagazine is for sale at the so-called better bookstores, such as for example Athenaeum and Scheltema in Amsterdam. Or subscribe to the ‘aan t IJ‘ newsletter and get it for free.

Inflatable! Blow Me Up Lamp Designed by Ingo Maurer

Inflatable Lamp

During Milan Design Week 2019 in April we, at Mimi Berlin, favoured some designs. One of them is the ‘Blow Me Up’ lamp signed by Ingo Maurer, but designed by him, Theo Möller, and Maurer’s team. As the name suggests this is an inflatable lamp, in the shape of a tube and made of plastic. One part is transparent the other part comes in a couple of metallic bright colors. What we like about the design is it’s simplicity and also that you can use tie-grips to hang it up, it isn’t the perfect lamp at all! It retails for about €270,- though.

M’ Afrique Detached

‘Blow Me Up’ was on show at the Moroso showroom in Via Pontaccio 10. The design isn’t new, it’s from 2017, but because of the fact that Moroso and Ingo Maurer are partners that didn’t matter we guess. Moroso’s ‘M’ Afrique Detached‘ installation is dedicated to this new partnership, ànd to the 10th anniversary of the M’ Afrique outdoor collection produced by Moroso furniture. Part of the designs in the M’afrique collection are made by crafstmen from Africa. The Shadowy Chair by Tord Boontje, for example, is made with a weaving technique used for fishing nets.

Quote

“The inflatable tube Blow Me Up by Theo Möller, Ingo Maurer & Team was first presented at Euroluce 2017. It is flexible to use: You can lean it against a wall, fasten it to the ceiling or wall with small hooks and nylon cords. It comes wrapped up in a box and is pumped up by the user. The LED-strip illuminates the reflecting side of the tube, thus dispersing indirect light into the room. Since summer 2018 on, Blow Me Up will be available in two sizes, 120 and 180 cm with the option to choose in between four colours.” (read more ingo-maurer.com)

Patterns as Time, Innovative Interior Design

Patterns

Patterns as Time is the name of the presentation of two Japanese design-studios; AtMa and Noiz, they both collaborated with DNP (Dai Nippon Printing) Innovative Design Center for Milan Design Week 2019. The presentation is clearly divided into 2 spaces: on the left, in full color, the installation ‘Time Printing’ by AtMa and ‘Patterns of Nature’ on the right in black, white and grey. The installations have in common that they are made in transparent layers and change colors in a subtle way. Walking through this installation is a fairytale-like experience, or maybe, if we get more poetic; a high-tech artificial fairytale forest where light, sound and color come to life. And, let’s not forget, this all is designed for your home. (or maybe for your store) It’s interior decoration.

The Good thing about collaborations

We, at Mimi Berlin, feel that i’ts always interesting to see ‘creatives’ and ‘techs’ working together because both disciplines can serve eachother to reach the next-level. Collaborations like this also can simply save time, so there’s more left to create new things. Why invent the weel if it’s already there, or why come up with ideas that already have been produced? What do you think? Let’s make some conversation below!

Click this link to read more about this presentation on the DNP site. If you are really interested the rest of their site is interesting because they are one of the largest printing companies worldwide. (it’s a very ‘dry’ website so you really need to dig hard.
