Lower East

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and exhibitions, events, dinners and a lot more.

Meet n’ greet n’ eat

Lower East hosted our first great event in our new lab in Berlin – Lower East Lab – a 200 square metres creative space in the middle of Kreuzberg. A workshop with 25 students, two teachers from Suhrs Madakademiet (a folk high school in Copenhagen, focusing on food, culture, gastronomy, health and good ingredients), and five food people living in Berlin; Tommy Tannock (Bite Club), Polina Marchenko (Kptn Cook), Maria Siedlaczek (Kitchen Surfing), Lauren Lee (Fräulein Kimchi) and ‘our own’ Jørgen Smidstrup (Camillos Paladar). Rasmus Schou Therkildsen and Louise Schou Therkildsen from Dönerkind, arranged and facilitated the workshop. In groups we were talking, drawing and discussing food trends – one group was cooking kimchikäsespätzle for everyone together with Fräulein Kimchi. Good people, good food and good vibes. We all had a lot of fun. Thank you all for coming here.

Hosting this event gave us a lot of energy and ideas about how much potential we have with this lab. The guests felt relaxed, uplifted and inspired by the space. We are looking forward to the coming events… You are most welcome to contact Lower East if you/your company/your group are coming to Berlin and need a great space for meetings, dinners, workshops, a classroom… Imagination is the only limit…
