Shopping Environmentally Friendly at Design-Boerse Berlin

From January 22 to 24 the Vintage fair attracts aficionados of good design to come to Berlin

Vintage needn’t call to mind protecting the environment and fostering culture, but buying a second-hand designer object is a sustainable act and honors the artifact’s creator.

No one thinks twice about conserving art, so why should the situation be different for classic design? The sixth Design Boerse Berlin invites guests to a warehouse in January, where they can have a clear conscience as they buy furniture, lamps, ceramics and other objects from the past 120 years. The show has evolved from an insider tip into a magnet for design aficionados: it drew 5,000 of them in 2015. midcenturydesign from Berlin is especially closely related to sustainability: “We scour Europe for the loveliest vintage furnishings, we restore them with authenticity, and then we offer them for sale,” explains managing director Prof. Uwe Demele, who teaches environmental and sustainability management at the HTW Berlin.
