Founded in Berlin in 1995, Gestalten is a publishing house that specializes in visual culture–from achievements in contemporary art and illustration to innovative architecture and product design. The company has published over 400 books to date (ranging from the evolution of a new Nokia typeface to a special edition tome on American street artist Mark Jenkins), all of which can be found at Gestalten's shop-cum-gallery space in Mitte's Hackeschen Hoefe. The Gestalten Space was opened in 2011 with the explicit mission of wanting to concretize the worlds depicted in Gestalten's books. This is achieved both by exhibiting the work of featured artists and by selling a carefully curated selection of design objects straight from the pages of Gestalten publications. The Gestalten Space also includes products that are sold exclusively at this location, like the award-winning brandy of the Stählemühle distillery. Normally these beautiful, individually-labelled apothecary bottles can only be procured from the manufacturer, via advance order. Visitors to Gestalten can behold (and hold) them in all their sepia-tinted glory.Show lessRead more
