Tuesday, October 9
Andrea van Reimersdahl, born in Germany, received her MFA from the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee. In 2002 she founded the label :: van reimersdahl :: providing printed art and fashion products. She has designed several fashion lines over the years and her cloths can be found in stores in the United States, Japan, Dubai, and many parts of Europe. By now the label can look back on many successful, international projects and co-operations, for example with the fashion house Prada, several Warner Brothers movie productions, and co-operations with Museumsquartier Vienna and Deutsche Guggenheim Museumsshop. Since 2010 she expanded her work with textiles to the field of interiors by teaming up with architects and designers. Her current work explores the fields of architecture, fashion, and art, including theoretical and research approaches.
Harald Schindele received his Dipl. Ing. Arch from the TU Braunschweig, Germany. Soon thereafter he moved to Berlin and founded the office of HSH architects. HSH has worked across a broad spectrum from individual residential houses through office and residential quarters to the transformation of industrial areas. The most important projects were the conversion and extension of the E-Werk and various high-density apartment buildings in Berlin. Recently the office has completed the reconstruction of the “Cafe Moscow”. HSH presented their work at numerous exhibitions locally and internationally, for example at the Architecture Biennale in Venice (2006), the Biennale for Architecture and Design “Fundacao Bienal de Sao Paulo“ (2005/2003), and the 14th Architecture Biennale in Quito (2004).
They have been collaborating on several projects. Amongst them the conversion of an attic space into a luxurious loft with roofgarden overlooking the center of Berlin and a textile wall in the interior of a bar. They recently finished Villa M in Berlin including a facade system with customized, textile inspired tiles.
