Planet Berlin The Global Tourist Guide

Scouring the web for inspiration, I’ve stumbled across this little belter by DW! Their ‘Planet Berlin‘ global tourist guide is exactly as it sounds, and explores the lives and businesses of Creative Entrepreneurs who have made Berlin their home. My absolute fantasy life that i.e. me with a quirky studio slash boutique (probably an old converted barn) spending my days creating and peddling upcycled furniture. Well, got to have a dream, ain’t ya!

Planet Berlin seems like an ongoing project but already has several businesses listed on its site. I’ve cherry-picked my favourite finds and listed below.

1. Bosnia-Herzegovina: Unique Factory Interiors

Unique Factory is based in an old butcher’s shop in Schöneberg (chuffin’ amazing!), creating new interior styles and revamping old furniture. Lots of its pieces come from Bosnia or support Bosnian workshops, playing homage to the owners’ heritage, and are made for bars, hotels and even apartments.

2. Australia: Kentholz Furniture

Creative furniture that’s also eco? Tick! Kentholz by Australian Entrepreneur, Stacey Kent creates eco furniture from old wood… initially experimenting with pallets. Just look at that table top, you’d never think that was once somebody’s old rubbish.

3. Sweden: Scandinavian Objects Home Furnishings

Can’t beat a bit of minimal Scandi styling, can you. Based in Prenzlauer Berg (an area where I lost many a night as a Student), Product Designer Sten Rasmussen’s boutique is packed with everything from Scandi designed lamps to chairs. Have a peruse through Scandinavian Objects here.

4. Poland: Quadrat Design Store

Am all for an edgy ear cuff, and this cracker comes from the Polish Quadrat Design Store. Based in Mitte, it’s not only Polish designed jewellery that it offers but also fashion and interiors.

5. Norway: Oslo Kaffebar

I say it at least twice a week but you can’t beat a good brew. I’ll be checking out the Oslo Kaffebar once am jabbed against the Rona, and those borders are open again. Owned by Norwegian Architect Kristian Moldskred, it’s located in the award-winning Felleshus in Tiergarten. Cool building. Cool coffee shop. I can already visualize myself sat there, supping a brew and dressed like an Hipster!

Got any cool boutiques on your radar? Plop ’em in me comments, cock.
