The Made Space – “Visions of Visionaries” Interview…

You guys remember when I went out to berlin and I went to that crazy MADE space with the thingy and the dome and the crazy lights???

When I was there they did a nice little interview that they recently put up on their made blog – called “Visions for Visionaries”.

Here it is below. I like this one a lot, cheap more personal, more about the life….

VISIONS OF VISIONARIES WITH NEIL ARMSTRONG | MADE from MADE Blog on Vimeo.

For our latest “Visions of Visionaries” we got together with acclaimed dj Neil Armstrong to talk about his passion for music, how it all got started, his work with Jay-Z and much more.

It’s always surprising to see for us from which background some artists actually come from. I mean who would have thought that once a chemical engineer will be spinning Hip Hop tunes for the inauguration of the first black President of the United States?!

Stop dreaming. It’s real!

A Visit to the Made Space in Berlin…

Our last day in Berlin, and we saved the best for last.

Phil G from Soto invited us to this space after he was done blowin up a ton of balloons with highsnobiety’s Dave .

A space thats is called MADE.

IMG_0774

I was unsure what to expect when me and Sky arrived… and even afterwards I’m still pretty dumbfounded.

IMG_0759

Built from the ideas of some key creative minds in particular TADIROCK, this MADE was a space created for the sheer point of CREATING . Creating Art, Creating a message, Creating greatness.

Much like Andy Warhol’s Factory in NYC from the 60’s , this is a place that was built for artists from all around the world to come together and make dreams come true.

A better way to explain it, would be to let the People of Made do the talking –

MADE trailer from MADE Blog on Vimeo.

From their blog

MADE
an inspiring place where creative minds
from different fields come together.
a living platform where they create a vision
of something extraordinary and bring it to life.

This space has only been open for about 2 months, and Phil G and Nico Zeh gave us the grand tour .

The aesthetic and functionality of the space as described in the video above are amazing.
They actually modelled the foyer entrance after one of my fav movies of all timeStar Wars . A lot of white , boxlike modular walls…

BUT , what catches the eye 1st is the CRAZY CRAZY LIGHTING SYSTEM.

IMG_0772

IMG_0753

IMG_0773

This lighting system is patented, the 1st of its kind. THey wanted to create a lighting system where you could control the mode thru color, a lighting system where a photographer could have 24 hour daylight and shoot with no shadows, and this system is what they came up with.

You can LITERALLY CHANGE EACH light to a different color, or change sections of it, or put them on a loop, all from ONE central control. simply Amazing.

IMG_0754

Peep the video below as they let me mess around with the shine.

The space itself, is malleable. Like how Bruce Lee tells his student to “Be Like Water, so is this space.

The walls are movable, the furniture, even the bar can be moved around to suit your creative needs.

The 1st Art installation created and shown at this space was this snowglobe project by Sneaker connoisseur Yoske Nishiumi and photographer Alex Flach, who put their heads together to come up with this extraordinary vision.

Snowglobe Project by Alex Flach and Yoske Nishiumi @ MADE from MADE Blog on Vimeo.

A big part of this project, was that the viewer would end up becoming part of the art piece, and Myself and Sky Gellatly got to do just that.

The guys at MADE ended up interviewing myself and sky, picking our brains about the space, about possible ideas that I have that I would like to have come to frution.

Who knows, you guys might see an upcoming blog about the Extraordinary thing I plan to Make in Berlin….

Weiner Snitzel and 1st Class Flights – Berlin Recap…

As much fun as the party was, the experience of berlin and chillin in this historic cultural town was even better…

the underground

From the moment we got on the plane it was gonna be a good trip. My manager and I got upgraded from coach to First Class Fo FREEZY because Coach got oversold. Its like when racism works in your favor.

1st class is definitely nice… not worth it if I actually had to pay for it, but compared to coach, its another world ;)

The day the block party was supposed to happen got rained out unfortunately, so we turned it into a tourist day. With our friend and fellow Hypebeast blogger Artoo, Phil G from Soto/MADE, and Thomas and Stephan, we got to see the city thru the eyes of the locals.

Kerin Cycle Culture Cafe was an early stop on the West Berlin Side for some coffee…

At this spot, I had the most excellent Weiner Snitzel . Breaded veal I believe. Delicious. and Very German. Like Sprockets.

All of this was great ;) Berlin is a beautiful town, but our last stop there was a place called
the MADE creative space, and that was the HIGHLIGHT. That my friends, will be for tomorrows blog….

It is a beautiful town and I will recapping my shenanigans here for the rest of this week, as I got to see and do quite a bit.

However, we’ll start with the reason I was out there in the 1st place – The No 74 Block Party! Initially meant to be on May 15th, we had to move it to the 16th due to Rain, BUT the weather gods shined their lights on us and made it a great day regardless….

IMG_0732

On this street Torstrasse, a bunch of stores got together and threw a honest to goodness Block Party, Flying myself in alongside Berlins own modselektor . Folk of all types came thru, from kiddies to young hipsters, to grandmamas and papas.

IMG_0543

A bunch of brands were present and accounted for – Pauls Boutique, Soto, UndPlus Collabroom, Oh Lalaaa and Uslu Airlines.

Overall it was an amazing event, as captured here by Highsnobiety

Pics from the event as captured by No 74 are here.

The Party got CARRAZY when Modselktor got on, and ended with a massive Pillow / Feather Fight…

AND THEN… AFTER THE SHOW it’s the AFTERPARTY….

Well. In this case, it was a PRE PARTY, as the party was moved to the next day and the afterparty stayed the same on May 15th.
