Celebrating Vol.09 at the FvF Friends Space

To mark the launch of Volume 09, The Creative Spaces Issue, Oak co-hosted an event in collaboration with Freunde von Freunden.

The event was held in FvF’s beautiful Friends Space in Kreuzberg, Berlin’s creative hub. We celebated with a two part discussion of creative spaces with artists Sophie Erlund and Henrik Strömberg and later on writer Saskia Vogel and architect Sigurd Larsen discussed place in translation. Danish food project Rødder provided guests with a superb selection of their modern Nordic fare and Copenhagen-born micro-brewery, Mikkeller, supplied the refreshments.

Held in a space FvF established to congregate a ‘global creative community’, it was an event that epitomized the new issue’s celebration of the spaces that incubate Nordic creativity.

Inside the volume, legendary artist Olafur Eliasson reflects on the collaborative studio that is his ongoing artwork. Fine jewellery designer Sophie Bille Brahe takes us on a tour of the hidden gems of Copenhagen that inspire her work. In this way, The Creative Spaces Issue presents both the spaces that we craft to foster inspiration, as well as the spaces that make us.

Many thanks to FvF for hosting the event and Rødder and Mikkeller for their support.
