‘Apollo’ is a very Luxurious lounge or seating area. It is a bespoke designer piece, created by Timothy Oulton Studio. This ‘Barbarella-esque‘ Rakete/Rocket is quite the decadent design; nobody has to have any use for it.
Furthermore the interior of the rocket is made with the most expensive and over the top luxury materials such as natural semi-precious stone. You can imagine that we, at Mimi Berlin, found this to be a very comfortable retreat.
Well ‘Flower Arrangements’ is probably a bit of an understatement. Maybe his work is better qualified as art (if we need to label, which we do) Azuma Makoto’s work ranges from sending a 50 year old bonzai tree into space to putting 10,000 mini jars filled with flower petals in the shopwindows of Colette in Paris.

For the last Dries van Noten Fashion Show he repeated his project ‘Iced Flowers’; flower arrangements captured in large blocks of ice. These ‘Iced Flowers’ were showcased along the runway and were so overpowering that we even didn’t noticed the garments….oops (That’s how we, fashionangels at Mimi Berlin, got aquinted with Azuma Makoto’s work)

People sometimes ask of us; what is it that you do Mimi Berlin? You keep posting all kinds of images with all kinds of topics…. Well, we answer, we read these images. Equally important we edit them, not with Photoshop, but we like to combine images to create new visions or ideas.
Like the two pictures below. We bumped into them, separately, on the net and they were saved in our archives. This combination is one we’d also like to keep in mind, so it goes up on this blog. Planned and directed by Osamu Yokonami (via ignant)
