2 weeks ago, adidas celebrated its 60th birthday with a true house party in Berlin. The interior decoration was done with much love to details, as these images prove. The food and drinks were in sync the theme and the DJ’s rocked the place. So here is video of the party, it is basically impossible to capture a real party on film.
On January 29th, 2009 adidas and No 74 celebrated 60 years of Soles and Stripes with an exclusive House Party. The adidas No 74 store was redesigned to resemble a real apartment including kitchenette, bath- and living room and decorated with several lovely details such as framed images of Adi Dassler and supporters from the past sixty years of adidas history. Local DJs joined the party with a mix of great hip hop tunes, funk and electro music. Watch the video & Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us!
Bruxelles by Raphaël Bastide, I guess it is supposed to indicate the weather in Brussels (Belgium).
So I’m finally back from good old Belgium. We almost had a private flight back to Berlin, there were only 14 passengers in total. It was quite bumpy due to some thunderstorms over Germany, it was still 29° C when we walked over the tarmac of Tempelhof International. Maybe it was my last flight from Tempelhof, they plan to close it by October 31st 2008. A big mistake! It’s the best airport I know.
The Bridge is a series of steps which rise up out of the water in front of you as you walk from one to the next, and then disappear back underneath behind you as you go, leaving you stranded with only one step visible in front of you, and one behind. The bridge ends in the middle of the water, where you find yourself totally isolated and cut off from the shore. You return the way you came. The mixed feelings of peace, isolation, relaxation and fear that the piece elicits are powerful. The project is on-going will ultimately lead to a permanent installation in a lake.
As always a video …
It’s again that time of the year … I have to go in zen mode. I have to go and see the North Sea … the beach … sand. So it will be quiet here over the next few days.
Speaking of sand, see what Jean-Pierre Hebért does with a mac and sand. ‘Mac-Controlled Algorithmic Art’ it’s called. The steel ball is moved by mac, I guess with a magnet. Just watch the videos in his profile on apple.com. Let’s see if I’m zen enough to do something like that without a mac.
This is probably one of the smallest houses I know, it is located in Antwerp (Belgium) and was designed by Sculp(It) Architecten. It is actually their own house and office at the same time. The front side is only 2,4 meters wide and it is 5,5 meters deep. So they only have around 60 square meters to live; divided over 4 floors. The ground floor is their office, first is the kitchen / dining room, second the living room and third is the bedroom /Â bathroom. They acually even have a bathtub on the roof. I don’t know if I could on such a small space …

It’s going to be quiet here till Monday … Once again I’m spending some time in my Heimat (homeland) as the Germans use to say.
