On Saturday, August 10, 2013, the Between Time Showcase will be opened to the public. For six weeks, until September 22, this elaborate constellation of fine furnishings, unique vintage designs and contemporary art will be presented in one of Berlin’s remaining time capsules of 19th century architecture.
Together with selected partners, the curators will transform the grand showroom of Berlin’s forgotten jewel, Wallstrasse 85, into a sumptuous collection of magnificent still-life tableaux. Here design pearls from many eras will waltz together across space and time, amid the gorgeously decayed splendor of this 19th century architectural gem. Scheduled for complete renovation in the near future, the Between Time Showcase will be one of the final opportunities for the public to bask in the decaying splendor of this architectural treasure. The Between Time Showcase, curated by internationally renowned interior architect Gisbert Pöppler and vintage furniture dealer Erik Hofstetter, is an independent event like no other. Unencumbered by
the dictates of a specific manufacturer's agenda, the curators are free to create their own choreographed moment where fabric, furniture, art and designs from across time are brought together in a lavish setting, rich in its own layered history. Breaking from conventions of the typical showroom mono-culture, the curators Pöppler & Hofstetter are creating a lavish world poised at the intersection of interior architecture studio, fine art gallery and
home furnishings boutique; embellished with an alchemical mix of hand selected design elements.
This elaborate pop-up showcase will be open to the public for an exclusive, limited engagement from August 10 – September 22, 2013. All exhibits are offered for sale.
