Thats incredible and I really wanna try it out. What do you think?
Designer might go in one direction nowadays, I like it though. This is somehow an ironic approach of that Hipster-like design trend by Dave Spengler.
So so interesting:
Hey friends, havent posted much in the past, after my Nighout wallet drop!
I have been busy with university, sports and life :)
Yesterday, my friend Erhan asked me to join him to visit his friends new waffle cafe. It is a small but cute cafe in Berlins Adalbertraße 88, in Kreuzberg and called WONDER WAFFEL.
The staff is really nice and polite, atmosphere is cozy and colorful and the waffles are SOOO GOOD!!! Yummy!
They already have a lot of likes on facebook, but help them to spread the word and visit their site HERE :)
The prices for a waffle are really reasonable and fair! I also enjoyed a great cappucino. So guys, go there, eat and enjoy! It is really tasty!
The only bad thing was that my girlfriend could not join :( She had to work and was a little mad I wen without here, but I promised her to go to Wonder Waffel next week! She’ll love it!
Alright friends, that’s it for today!
PS: I hope you like the little stop motion video above. I recorded it with my iphone and the very cool app FRAMES. Very easy and very cool!
The Nightout Wallet by TZ
handmade, handstitched, limited edition//40 (30brown, 10black), 2012, designed in berlin
I got those beautiful wallets made during my time in Beijing. I stumbled upon this tiny leather shop in a really crowded area close to Beijings Bell Tower. The owner and operator Wang Jing Dong was the nicest person and we somehow managed in Chinenglish to figure out my needs and product specifications. I really liked their sample that they made and from there one, I couldnt wait anymore to pick up the 40 beautiful wallets! I individualize the wallets here in Berlin with your inititials (upon request). The TZ stamp on the front is on every wallet!
The story behind it:
Last year, I was having some drinks with my buddy Eric. We were chatting about our “Nighout” wallet solutions. We both used some crappy cheap plastic billholders. We thought about alternatives and searched the web for a solution. But all the wallets we found were pretty expensive and not really fitting to our idea. So guess what, we made some samples from leather scraps that I had laying around and after some trial and error came up with the final Nighout. After that I made a real leather sample in a leather shop in Berlin and then was happy to find my leather buddies in Beijing that could produce The Nightout according my wants and needs. Simple as that.
Fitting 2 credit card sized cards, and many bills and of course, perfectly fitting your pant pockets.
On request :) Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The teaser video:
I really really hope you like the end result as much as I do, The Nighout is a daily carry for me now. The leather just gets bettr with age, and my initials make this piece so special for me.
Initial stamping on request!
Share if you like and leave some love :)
Pretty funny and often so true. For advice on a GOOD presentation, check out this post from me a while back.
I am in love with bikes and especially “cafe racers”. The word has its roots in the 1960s British counterculture group the Rockers.
“Rockers were a young and rebellious Rock and Roll counterculture that wanted a fast, personalized and distinctive bike to travel between transport cafés along the newly built arterial motorways in and around British towns and cities. The goal of many was to be able to reach 100 miles per hour (160 km/h)—called simply “the ton”—along such a route where the rider would leave from a café, race to a predetermined point and back to the café before a single song could play on the jukebox, called record-racing.
A classic example of this was to race from the Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road in northwest London to the Hanger Lane junction and back again. The aim was to get back to the Ace Cafe before the record on the jukebox had finished. Given that some of the Eddie Cochran tunes that were in vogue at this time were less than two minutes long, the racers had to make the three-mile round trip at extremely high speed.”
Text above taken from Wikipedia here. I posted a picture of a great bike on facebook last week and as it turned out, many people shared my love for the beauty of those bikes. Here is one more example. I would modify some little details, as the front light for example. But other than that, this bike is a hit.
Wanna hear some sound?! Here it is:
Seen at Cafe Racer Culture.
First film, made in Beijing China. Not perfect, but unique. My motto for 2012.
Hope to get some feedback and hope the atmosphere somehow is covered well. More information will be in the video description.
