Homme Sweet Homme: Frank Leder

Editorial / 2010 / Berlin
Published in Not Magazine / Shanghai

Frank Leder is a German fashion designer, and maybe the most German of them all. Frequently inspired by tradition and history, he takes on the big German myths in his clothes: the forest, the bread, the beer. His love for vintage materials and handmade quality is also expressed in his home and studio, in many ways a modern version of the traditional German Salon. But always with a wink of the eye.

Atelier Margaretenhšhe

Editorial / 2008 / Essen
Published in Esquire Japan / Tokyo

One of the rare remaining outposts in Germany to adhere to the traditions of handmade craft, the ceramics studio Margaretenhšhe was founded in the 1920s and is now being led by Korean master Young-Jae Lee. Fusing Asian aesthetics with influences of the Bauhaus and an artistic approach with applied ceramics, the studio is not only self-reliant, it also serves as an example how quality and individual character can hold their place in an environment of globalization and mass production.

Tempelhofer Freiheit

Editorial / 2012 / Berlin
Published in Huge / Tokyo

Tempelhofer Freiheit is a somewhat unique park situated in the heart of Berlin: formerly the landing strip of the historic Tempelhof airport - which itself underwent several changes in its long history, from main airport of the Third Reich to US military airport with a pivotal role in the Berlin Air Lift to sleepy city airport to iconic location for fairs and festivals - the vast and utterly flat area was shorthandedly declared a park in 2010 upon the airport's closure. While at first only intended as a temporary situation Tempelhofer Freiheit quickly turned into the most popular park of the city, with Berliners once again stoically embracing the interim as a perfect solution.
