The Field Hammock

Posted on | July 13, 2014

Crave for the feeling of nature? I LOVE my Mexican hammock. But this piece of art has just become some serious competition for my piece of memory from my expatriate time in Mexico City. Seen at the Milan Design Week, this hammock combines the slow movements of a hammock with the relax feeling of lying in the fields. It blends the notion of nature and artificial, inside and outside.

The vendor tells me that it is water- and UV ray-resistant. It’s made of multicolored grass-like synthetic polyamide pile fabric. And it feels like lying on natural grass. A nice piece of ‘don’t need it but it’s so pretty I really want it’.





Supermarket of the Future

This Is What Supermarkets Of The Future Look Like…
Two young German entrepreneurs worked for over a year to make their dream of eco-friendly supermarkets a reality. Finally – a world of totally package-free food shopping. Bless. REWE, take a good look.



Homage to contemporary forms of cinema

Posted on | November 2, 2013

Passionate film lovers are invited to leave the indoor sphere of megaplex cinemas these days and enjoy their movie experience with others in quite unusual settings. This summer, for example, Londoners could combine watching a movie with taking a hot bath in the so-called ‘Hot Tub Cinemas‘. Normally people sit in rows watching a movie, all looking in the same direction without any invitation to interrelate with each other. The Hot Tub setting is intimate, social and stimulates conversation.


How about some fitness training while watching a film?

My trend blog on

Posted on | August 22, 2013

This week, I wrote the 20th entry on the trend blog site of shoe manufacturer DEICHMANN –>

People keep asking me what I do with all the impressions and photos and stuff that I encounter on my trips throughout the world: I teach at Universities, I write in special-interest journals and I write blogs. What not make another filme? Well, film making takes way too long considering the speed that technology travels these days and a book – sigh – it’s been on my bucket list forever – will happen one day. But for now, if you master the German language, then you might find some useful input on Deichmann’s trendblog site. I write weekly, every Wednesday. Feedback and trends that you’ve seen which might be worth sharing and writing about are welcome.
