Home Edition 2020
Let’s keep the cultural life alive!
As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. We strongly believe that we all need positive input in this extraordinary situation.
Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years. Each day, we will add a new video alternating daily between talks in German and English. Stay tuned!
You can also send us a short mail if you want to receive a weekly notification.

This talk is presented with the support of BoConcept.
In his talk, Stefan Behnisch shares memories about his individual path and speaks about his passion for outdoor sports like riding motorcycles and surfing. Although we live in times, where we have to stay at home as much as possible it is still important to get fresh air to lift our spirits.
So, if you are lucky enough to have a garden, terrace or balcony you should start making it spring ready. With the Rome collection, designed by Henrik Pedersen, you can create a comfortable space to enjoy the open air and transform your terrace into a contemporary living space. The minimal design, with high quality materials developed for all weather, ensures many years of great time in the sun. This 2-seater sofa is big on style and will perfectly fit your outdoor space. The open end is not only a beautiful design twist, it adds storage, decoration or a place to put down the coffee cup. You can find BoConcept’s brand book here: Link.
