Bringing art and furniture together A combination of conceptual design and handicraft. The statement of a piece of art meets a diverse and practical use. Its name is Yama. It could be interpreted as a desk, but who actually decides what a desk has to look like? Why not put it in the middle of a room as a piece of art? We continue working on this idea until we can create a prototype, which is the transmission of. One idea results in 11 different pieces of furniture. Thus, one of their designs is also named Sol, a console table which can be placed in any kind of room. They believe that the conflation of art and functionality in an object should give every behol-.
The designers do not want to reveal too much about it just yet. But design fans can look forward to new materials and forms, as well as smaller objects that are an eye-catcher in smaller spaces.

Born in , Milan decided to do a theatre carpenter apprenticeship at the German State Opera in Berlin after finishing school. I believe that this experience grounds me and this in turn benefits the credibility of my acting. However, his love for acting and the theatre were a part of him from much earlier on in his life.
When I went home, I told my mum that I wanted to become an actor. She then organised a spot in a theatre group for children and teenagers — and my love for the theatre was born. Not only did he receive a lot of critical acclaim for this role, but he also received the Bavarian and the German Film Award as Best Leading Actor.
During filming, Til, Samuel and I really did become friends — from the very first moment, the chemistry was right. Klassentreffen 1. In particular, the 80s in East Berlin were a very special time. First of all, I became a man in this period and was also significantly coined by the changes. And having such important experiences in one place turns a place of residence into a home. But my favourite place will always be my home — the place where my family is. Rental fees have gone up dramatically and gentrification has become omnipresent. The fact that capitalism has so much influence in this wonderfully free and chaotic city makes me quite sad and turns.
Berlin into a different place than it was 20 years ago. But, on the other hand, why should it be any different here than in the rest of the world? But what else can we look forward to from the actor? However, my biggest wish would be a fairer world in which all people have the same chances to become happy and that we all become smarter and stop destroying our planet.
Personally, we look forward to it! PURS — an excellent melange of culinary art, design and ambiance Some hotels and restaurants defy any attempt at a description. The quality of their cuisine, the wine on offer, the design and interior, the service — in short: the entire package — speaks for itself. However, we will still attempt a description for you! Hotel and restaurant PURS opened in spring In the internationally acclaimed art collector, antiquary and interior designer Axel Vervoordt, we have found an artistic genius who has helped us to elevate our project PURS to an entirely new level with incredible sensitivity.
The hotel and restaurant PURS is the first public space the Belgian Vervoordt has designed as an overall project — and it is safe to say that he truly outdid himself. Our rooms appeal through their very own stylistic and formal idiom which easily connects history to modernity. The quality of his. Wir versuchen trotzdem eine Beschreibung. He then freshly prepares each menu individually and with only the best ingredients. At the moment, we have more than options on offer and each one is in a class of its very own.
I put a pronounced focus on the authenticity of each wine. On 10 October, for example, the hosts invite you to a tasting session of wines from the highly acclaimed Spanish vineyard Terroir al Limit, and a menu especially created by Christian Eckhardt for this occasion. On 5 December, guests can enjoy the inviting ambiance with delicious truffle creations from the Piemont, and award-winning wine. Gourmets who like to plan long-term will also be pleased to hear about the special Christmas menu that Christian Eckhardt and his team are going to offer between 25 and 29 December.
Another unique culinary experience to look forward to from PURS. Am Dezember serviert. High-quality Swiss chocolate with an individual taste The Beantobar products by Taucherli, the premium swiss chocolate GmbH, are a true taste experience: The visionary founder Kay Keusen loves to demonstrate just how varied the taste of chocolate can actually be. The company is responsible for the whole production process — from the growing of the beans to the actual chocolate — thus ensuring an outstanding quality across the board.
Beantobar is also the name of a new Taucherli product line. Therefore, not the artful form nor the look are the most important factors, but rather, the original produce that is used. The movement has its origins in America and was the response of many small producers to a growing pressure from the chocolate industry. In Switzerland alone — a country famous for its chocolate — 99 per cent of the confectioners do not produce their own chocolate, but buy the raw ingredients instead.
Producers and confectioners on the other hand, who follow the bean to. When the premium swiss chocolate GmbH started out three years ago, it did so in the same way as most of the other confectioners do: Buying the coverture, the raw chocolate of the highest Swiss industrial quality, instead of growing the beans themselves. This is something the company has now started to change step by step.
Kay Keusen had the idea of producing every element of the chocolate-making process during one of his travels, where he also met a now close friend, a Vietnamese cocoa farmer. For Keusen, bean to bar was a completely new challenge, but he wanted to show what chocolate was really capable of, in terms of quality and flavour.
It took him two years to develop the chocolate and to save the money needed to create the necessary infrastructure in his small factory. But since the bean to bar movement has started, a few companies have specialised in building smaller machinery. This also meant we had to buy. The Vietnamese farmer has found various Criollo trees, which — next to Forastero and Trinitario — produce the most exclusive beans. Everything here is grown organically. The second plantation is situated in the Mekong delta: The Vietnamese beans are grown after the same principles.

The bean, how it is grown and fermented, the roasting process and the conching, all influence how the end product tastes. Of course, the Swiss chocolate industry famously knows how to make beauti-. That taste in turn demonstrates whether or not everything has been done right during the production process.
For example, there are differences between various vintages or sites. All of the important information is printed on the packaging, so that people can learn what truly makes the difference to the flavour sensations that they are experiencing as a result. Soaring wine export figures If you have ever visited Vienna, you have probably noticed the large amount of vineyards surrounding the city. And if you were lucky enough to visit one of those vineyards, you will know first-hand how tasty the local wine really is. With a sharp increase of the export value to ,6 million euros, the million-euros mark was cracked for the first time.
Additionally, the average price of 3,39 euros per litre reached an all-time high. As expected, the small grape harvest of led to a decrease of the export volume of Austrian wine in 46,8 million litres means a decrease of 3. However, this dampener has been counteracted by a remarkable increase in the export val-. Especially positive export developments were recorded in the Scandinavian and Benelux countries, as well as in the United Kingdom. China, Canada and Russia had remarkable shares of the impressive export figures as well — besides showing an absolute increase in value, they were also able to show an increase of the average price per litre.
The extraordinary increase of the average price was also backed by the price-sensitive export market of Germany, with a historic 2,60 euros per litre. After the record-breaking wine year of , the chances are high that Austria will also achieve new milestones in If you are interested in trying some tasty Austrian wine, be sure to read the following special theme on Austrian wines and wine estates to get you inspired!
Roman and Adelheid Pfaffl passed on the love for viticulture to their children Roman Josef Pfaffl and Heidi Fischer, and today, the family is a prime example of superb cross-generational teamwork. This passion is also evident in the Pfaffl wines, which are of top quality and continue to receive awards every year.
Hence, the vineyard of hectares is now known far beyond the Austrian borders and distributes its wines in no less than 30 countries. The Pfaffls were the very first Austrian winery to receive this award. The winery in South Styria is a family business throughout. The family has been working together for many decades and their excellent Sauvignon blanc from the Hochgrassnitzberg reed is a true highlight.
Gemeinsam wird seit vielen Jahrzehnten Weinbau betrieben und der exzellente Sauvignon blanc der Ried Hochgrassnitzberg sticht hier besonders hervor. The wine tradition of the Polz family started in at Grassnitzberg. Over the decades, the focus shifted from a mix of fruit growing and viticulture to exclusively harvesting grapes.
At the end of the s, Erich and Walter Polz took over and specialised even more in the diversity and quality of wines. Since , Christoph Polz has been the winemaker, and he gives the wines his unique signature. Die Weinbautradition der Familie Polz begann am Grassnitzberg. A highlight in the range of wines by the Polz family is their Sauvignon blanc from the Hochgrassnitzberg reed. Fermentation and the aging process take place in big, used wooden barrels and the wine makes its way into the bottle after 18 months at the earliest.
The best way to get to know the Polz wines is, of course, at their winery and in selected wine houses across Europe. Or, additionally, you can find them via their online shop. This winery, where every single grape is harvested by hand, produces one of the best Pinot Noirs in the country. Auf dem Weingut, wo jede einzelne Traube handverlesen wird, entsteht einer der besten Pinot Noirs des Landes.
I also use screen prints rather than paper tags, to label my bottles. Wenn es um Wein geht, ist Pinot Noir sein Liebling. Er passt perfekt in diese Region, weil er sehr vom speziellen Klima im Kamptal profitiert. So bekommt er den unvergleichlichen Geschmack. Der Bodensee ist eigentlich eine eher beschaulichere Weinbaugegend und sicherlich nicht die offenkundigste Wahl, eher ein Geheimtipp. Da freut es die Winzer um so mehr, dass ihr Wein so hohen internationalen Anklang findet.

I love to watch Brazilian TV, for example, listen to Brazilian music and often cook dishes from my home.

So why not follow its lead and look at the world from high above? From climbing trees as children to having little houses built up there — trees have always been a source of fascination to us humans. So why not change perspective and go for a proper walk across leafy branches?
It has been made possible thanks to many professional tree-top trails which have sprung up recently. Baumwipfelpfad Bayern One of the larger options in Germany is the tree-top walkway in the Bavarian National Forest, with spectacular views. Between eight to 25 metres above the ground, the elevated path is fun for the entire family and is 1, metres long. Like the majority of tree-top walkways, this one is accessible for prams and wheelchairs with its highlight being the metre-high treetop tower and its stunning architecture.
On a clear day, visitors can even see the Northern edge of the Alps. It also has a fabulous tree-top trail offering. The area includes forest, open habitats and wetlands, giving it a distinctively different atmosphere. An environmental education centre completes the experience, especially for kids. Beautiful tree-top hotels allow guests to stay overnight and bring back childhood memories of treehouse camping.
Another highlight is the new escape room located in the tower. The world of the Brothers Grimm invites teams to solve riddles in order to get their freedom back, all amongst treetops 40 metres above ground. During the snowy season, there is even a Christmas market. The way the skywalk is incorporated into nature has been recognised as one of the most environmentally friendly methods and the architecture has won an award for it.
With a visitor centre and playgrounds, this is an excellent choice for families.

For many hikers, crossing such a bridge for the first time is not an easy feat. However, once managed, it is a great feeling and a real high. Some of the trees here are more than 1, years old, making the Aletsch Forest one of the oldest of its kind. But back to the Bel Alp and Rieder Alp suspension bridge.
Looking at it alone might make you a bit weak in the knees and cause your pulse rate to go up. But why? Why this fear? Can you overcome this fear and not only make it over the bridge but also actually enjoy it while you are up there? What is happening within us and our bodies when we are faced with the prospect of crossing a suspension bridge so high up? With the right tips and tricks, there is no need to fear vertigo. In fact, consciously facing this primal fear can help one to cope better with stress and fears in everyday life.
The suspension bridge connecting Bel Alp and Rieder Alp seems to float at dizzy heights above the Massa Gorge: At metres in length and between two steep mountain faces, it will most certainly take your breath away at first sight. The tour consists of six different legs, each one lasting between 2. The trail then takes you high above the Aletsch Glacier through an enchanting landscape of gorgeous, colourful Alpine meadows, with views on the pe-.
Your head knows that. However, your body does not really trust your head. What a lot of us experience in such moments is vertigo, a kind of swirling sensation when at a high altitude. This means that when we are looking own, an impulse to move downwards automatically follows. Therefore, the brain receives conflicting information from the sensory organs, suggesting a danger of falling down. Having that kind of background knowledge helps when faced with crossing a suspension bridge.
Obviously though, there is still likely to be a certain element of fear mixed with the allure of a thrilling experience ahead. Once you are off on your way, you might even experience something resembling flying, a certain elation, a real rush of adrenaline and feelings of happiness. The view and experience are incredible. And then you have made it to the other side, feeling the mountain beneath your feet, legs maybe a bit wobbly, but on a real high. You made it! Such an adventure can actually have a profound effect on your life.
It also creates a bond between people and a feeling of having experienced something together, no matter if it is only two people or a whole group. This alone has a lasting effect. This can generally be treated with different methods that influence your mind positively, or with relaxation and breathing techniques. For instance, the Massa bridge is 40 metres long, the Goms one runs over metres and the Aspi-Titter is metres high — so there should be something for every taste. Five highlights, five options to test your courage and, as we know now, your adventure can even have a therapeutic effect.
Left: Robert Blaschke: founder raumbau architekten. Poetic ground contact raumbau architekten serve the human being in both a functional and aesthetic way, while keeping an expert eye on the economic framework. As a building is never an end in itself, but rather forms a vibrant addition to the surrounding landscape, the architects strongly believe in adaptive individuality.
Due to this flexible approach, no raumbau building resembles the other. Adapting to the surrounding landscape while at the same time creating an individual appearance is a balancing act that raumbau architekten enjoy. Thus, a building structure that follows both functional and poetic prerequisites becomes a key challenge. Additional qualifications as property trustee and developer resulted in the new emphasis on economic expertise, which has earned raumbau many national and international clients in the field of project development.
