Modulor

by James Glazebrook

Move over RSVP, we’ve found a new favourite paper porn palace! Modular at Moritzplatz more than lives up to its tagline, “material total”, by offering stationary, art supplies and even furniture in all shapes, sizes and colours of the spectrum. The building also houses design studios, picture framers and a couple of caf√©s, making Modular more of a creative lifestyle brand than just a supply store.

Its concern with both form and function, and blurring of the lines between home and work, reflects what we feel is a very Berlin mindset. In a city¬†where many homes are converted factories and many places of work are in old apartment buildings, why shouldn’t your office be¬†as aesthetically pleasing as your home, and your flat as functional as your office?

Theorising aside, do check out Modular – chances are you’ll find us wandering aimlessly through its aisles, saying irrational things like¬†”Ooo… I love these! What are they? Can we get one in every colour of the rainbow?” If you experience the same kind of “supply snow blindness”, we recommend using the 3D relief map of Berlin, pictured in the last photo, to reorientate yourself. Yes, that’s where you are…
