under the spell of glass

My attraction to coloured glass has reached the junkie stage. After last Summer’s Green Glass Shelf Saga, my latest shopping frenzy at the local flea market was done almost in autopilot. I found myself with this selection of funny glasses, and when I washed them up I found that they were gorgeous all together. The amber color is indeed very DDR. RiB=Recycled in Berlin.

After Köln, Milan

cimg0226

Salone del Mobile in Milano, after Köln…less hype, more craftmanship. On the 80th anniversary of the bauhaus, the return of the well-crafted over the decorative, the fashionable, the redundant, the transient is good news.

I am looking forward to returning to that second-hand market in Berlin where I saw the most beautiful 1950s oval table…for just 50 euros…(it’s gone, I know, I know…). I am more into “pick and mix” rather than in Salone mood!

Look at the beautiful colors of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt cafe’…very much recycled stuff, I love it! (even it does not fit with The Flat)
