Lamps Created in Plastic by Mimi Berlin

We, at Mimi Berlin, have been away from our blog for over a year. So we do feel the need to update you, our readers, on what we’ve been up to all this time. Well, amongst other things, and in a nutshell; we created lamps. Below some quick snapshots.

The lamps made by Mimi Berlin

All these lamps are constructed mainly with recycled plastic. Or as we like to say; discarded plastic all sorts; early plastics, newly produced plastic….from Tupperware to…..well, everything but the kitchen sink.

Wait, hold on, we created more in our year of absence

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.

Red Nose Plastic Face

Red Nose, is a portrait and a musicbox.

Red Nose is a part of the ‘Important Bagatelles‘ series, made only with discarded (early) plastics by Mimi Berlin. Red Nose is a unique work, signed by Mimi Berlin.

This is a crappy video of the Red Nose portait in action, there is little action; but it’s cute.

Hard Plastic Renwal Dolls

Renwal Dolls

Renwal dolls, they look so creepy, don’t they? But at the same time they are SO pretty as well! The photography, by ForgetMeNotVintage; the shop on etsy which sells these vintage dolls, is truly outstanding. The pink doll is neatly placed on a chair, and we can see that she sits in a wallpapered room, the yellow child is also portrayed in a masterly way. We, at Mimi Berlin, don’t want the dolls, we want these photo’s! #auchhaben

Early plastics

Dolls from Renwal toys. above, in pink is the mother, the sister is yellow. Below, in white, are the Renwal Veterinarian Doctor and Nurse Doll, they all belong in a dollhouse and are really small in size. The figures are produced by the American Renwal company from 1945 untill the late 1950s. (Click HERE for an extra read on older and early plastics dollhouses)
