We love projects that give new life to discarded materials, which is why we are delighted to host designer Anaïs Fraise exhibiting her line of upcycled lamps from October 26 until November 30, 2017 at our studio on Emser Straße 126.
Ambidextre by Anaïs Fraise gives a second chance to found objects, with a touch of nostalgia creating unique design pieces that brighten a room, a touch of humour in repurposing decorative antique porcelain into utilitarian works. Each object is one of a kind and hand made.
Opening reception on Thursday October 26, from 7pm. To set the mood for our evening of shadows and light, we are pleased to open the stage to the angelical voice of Marek Polgesek to serenade us. His project Nansea is Baroque pop music dealing with themes like queer kings and the turmoil sparked by the passions of the body and the heart. Expect costumes by Agente Costura.

If you are tired of wearing lats year's clothes but don't want to buy new ones, come along to the ypcycling evenings and learn how to give new life to your old garments. We give creative ideas and teach experimental techniques to transform anything textile: Whether you just want to learn to resew on buttons, holes in your favourite dress, or have an ambitious project to turn a pair of jeans into a backpack, all levels are welcome. Sewing machines and materials available, bring your own project and ideas - whatever is sitting in your wardrobe just waiting to be reinvented.
Lisa Simpson has been upcycling since 2003, working between visual arts, fashion and music. She is known for her musical sewing performances, preparing the sewing machine as a musical instrument, translating improvisational techniques from musical compositions into textiles. Strongly influenced by DIY and Adhoc, her workshops focus on free experimentation and learn by doing.
Studio Hertzberg warmly welcomes Pepe Dayaw from Nowhere Kitchen to perform his magic with an improvised dinner made of leftover ingredients, from us at the studio as well as from anyone that feels inclined to bring whatever is kicking around in the fridge!
This project basically translates some of our fashion philosophies concerning waste reduction and reusing materials, so we couldn’t be more excited.
For your hearing pleasures we will have some delicious improvised music by Canadian suitcase-drum-legend Ben Brown and Hungarian just-landed-in-Berlin cellist Hartyáni Gábor.
If that wasn’t enough already, there will be an amplified musical sewing machine and some dance interaction from the same guy that will be serving us dinner!
Wednesday February 22
If you would like to contribute leftover food you can also bring them by the studio Tuesday or Wednesday from 13:00 till 19:00.
Food and sound will be served on a donation basis.
