WELCOME

N Dear Reader,

ative New Yorker” – that was the name of the best-known song by the band Odyssey, which in the late ’70s became one of the anthems of the illustrious nightclub Studio 54. Studio 54 also represents the zenith of the disco era and is symbolic of an attitude towards life which many are, without doubt, still in search of today. The song is about a young woman who lives in New York City and travels across the metropolis on the subway or in a cab, in order to finally find herself, and love, through music

and dance. The place – today we would call it “the location” – epitomizes this feeling and way of experiencing the world. It is little wonder, then, that many nightclubs derive their names from a particular place. Studio 54 was located in a building in which music, movies and the famous Johnny Carson Show were produced. The club’s founders, Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, the latter of whom is profiled in this edition, initially only wanted to call their club “Studio,” but then added the name of the street it was located on – West 54th. To this day, one of Germany’s most renowned nightclubs is called “P1,” in reference to its address in Munich, at Prinzregentenstraße 1. Beach clubs, too, are named after locations, among them one of the first and most famous: Club 55 on St Tropez’s Pampelonne beach, whose name indicates the year it opened, and hence refers to a particular place in time. “Buhne 16” on the northern shores of the municipality of Kampen on the island of Sylt, was named after the 16th of a large number of breakwaters which were built into the North Sea in order to protect the island’s precious sandy beaches from stormy seas. The most exciting locations usually also boast the best clubs in the world, whether in Ibiza, St. Barth, in New York City, on the Côte d’Azur, or – this year – on Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro, where the soccer World Cup is sure to guarantee the biggest parties of the year. It is, therefore, no wonder that these locations usually denote the most desirable residential areas, in which the world’s most stunning pieces of residential real estate are located. Once again, you will also be able to find these in this edition of GG.

WELCOME

Breaking every rule … Sometimes the secret to success lies in the attitude you take when shaping your creations. In this edition of GG, you will meet a number of very different personalities who are united by their way of thinking: out of the box! In other words, forget all the existing rules and do exactly the opposite. Ian Schrager, founder and creator of the legendary nightclub Studio 54, used to have spectacular theatrical backdrops made for his glamorous guests. To this day, he keeps surprising with his unusual boutique hotel concepts, frequently challenging the conventional industry. Zaha Hadid, the only woman in a male-dominated world of famous architects has made her mark with her organic designs, which are often conceived to be too avant-garde to build. The Stephens sisters have only just embarked on their career in jewelry design, but their label Anndra Neen has already attracted lots of attention and many fashionistas worldwide. The very personal journeys of all these individuals inspire because they have not followed a predetermined pattern. They might seem a bit chaotic, sometimes illogical even and do not follow a straight course. But in all their colorful and unusual demeanor, they lead to one place only: to success!

We wish you a great read! Yours,

Michaela Cordes

THANK YOU Yacht expert

STEPHAN KOHL After completing vocational training as an engineering technician, Stephan Kohl left Germany and went abroad. In Italy, he worked in quality control and was in charge of customer deliveries for yacht builders. Then he switched gears and moved into active yacht brokerage and customer management at E & V. The experience he gained in the central Adriatic region and in Montenegro, a very promising new market, prompted Stephan Kohl to open a showroom with a yachting lounge in Tivat.

Hair is art!

MIOK There’s no such thing as a “bad hair day” for this South Korean native. Miok’s motto: “Try out all kinds of styles, have fun – and feel amazing!” Throughout her career, the stylist has taken inspiration from Eugene Souleiman, editorial director at Vidal Sassoon. Miok moved from Long Island to live in New York, where she works with famous photographers and has done the hair of stars like Andie MacDowell and Alicia Keys. Her best job ever? Whatever she is is currently working on ….

TANJA PABELICK There’s not much Tanja Pabelick likes better than to set up her desk temporarily somewhere new. She is constantly drawn to wherever she sees new designs resulting from artisanal craftsmanship rather than from industrial production. Tanja earned her design degree in Laos and makes sure to travel to Southeast Asia at least once a year. Officially, she lives in Berlin, but she is also renting a small cottage in Dublin that she likes to withdraw to in order to write.

ASIA GEIGER A native of Poland, Asia Geiger worked as a model in England before she discovered, in Tokyo, how good she was at making people look great with just a little makeup and a new hairstyle. After 17 years as a make-up artist in L. A. she moved to New York, where she has been living for four years. In line with her motto “Beauty comes from within,” she gave us a tip for the summer: “Instead of foundation, apply some tinted moisturizer, a touch of rouge, lip gloss and waterproof mascara.”

Good going!

ANDREAS TÖLKE Eight years and countless interviews – that’s the story of Zaha Hadid & Andreas Tölke. The Berlin-based journalist knows the world’s most creative architect better than almost any other member of his trade. This is reflected in his very personal profile of the famously interview-shy Londoner by choice on page 44. Sought after worldwide by the likes of Australian Vogue and Philippine Tatler, David de Rothschild and Yoko Ono, our author says: “Tölke just writes it down….”

Welcome

LARISSA MIKEC While earning her Master’s degree in European Urban Cultures, Larissa Mikec visited more than 23 European cities and lived in the following four for three months each: Brussels, Tilburg, Manchester and Tallinn. She liked Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, best because the city is not so “typically European.” The Lüneburg native, who recently arrived in Hamburg where she has started to feel at home, has begun working as a publishing assistant at GG.

Venice is for Lovers …

Starting this June, the city of Venice will be hosting the 14th Architecture Biennale, curated by Rem Koolhaas. In recent years, the romantic Italian city on the lagoon has been dominating the modern art scene, with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the Palazzo Grassi and the Punta della Dogana, a former customs building which Tadao Ando converted into a museum and where François Pinault’s “Prima Materia” exhibition is currently being shown.

You are very well known designers, among the most successful in Germany. You are sought-after internationally, too. What are the qualities necessary for this?

Successful double act: Markus Jehs (on the left) and Jürgen Laub met when they were still in college. In 1994 they founded the company Jehs + Laub in Stuttgart. The two designers develop all their creations as a team and design for top brands like Cor, Cassina, Fritz Hansen, Knoll International and Schönbuch. 1 bed “Jalis” (Interlübke) 2 tray “Korona” (Stelton) 3 bar stool “Jalis” (Cor) 4 armchair “Shrimp” (Cor) 5 table “Mell” (Cor) 6 armchair “Shrimp” (Cor) 7 chair “Shrimp” (Cor) 8 sofa “Elm” (Cor) 9 tea pot “Potter” (Stelton) 10 wall clock “Time” (Stelton).

Jürgen Laub: The question is how you define success. Does success mean earning large sums of money, being famous, or does it mean being happy? I cannot really say what accounts for our success. We are committed to making products that are not only stylish, but also useful to people. Products you can take pleasure in, and which do the job they were designed for, well. That is the foremost prerequisite, because a chair you cannot sit on is absolutely pointless. Markus Jehs: A designer has to be curious all the time, and we already learned to see the world differently when we were in college. To my mind, being a designer is primarily a question of attitude. You are not just a designer eight hours a day, you are a designer around the clock. This changes your perception and allows you to notice things which could be improved. What role does sustainability play in the designs you

will be able to pass them on to my children, who will enjoy using them because they will still be fully functional and not outdated visually. “Elm” is a new sofa you have just designed for Cor. What is special about it?

Markus Jehs: We are well known for the high-quality woodwork we produce, but since the wooden structure of the sofa is on the inside, it is hidden from view. With “Elm” we reversed this principle, removed the cover and made the framework visible. Hiding everything connected to the structure under a leathery surface is an idea that was developed by Charles Eames – the so-called elephant design. A chair is the complete opposite of this approach. It is structured like an insect: you can see every joint. How would you describe your style? Jürgen Laub: That is difficult for us to say. Maybe our style is really more of an attitude, one which is reflected in the products we design. When we are approached by companies who we think will not be a fit for us, we turn down the job. Decisions like these are based on life experience, on gut feeling. It is like meeting a woman: either the chemistry is right or it isn’t. And in the 10 latter case it’s better not to get involved .

So people can enjoy art without having to go to a museum, which in America is like going to a crowded subway station. At the Morgans, we had already put up 150 Robert Mapplethorpe prints on the walls. Another time, I asked Giorgio Armani to design the uniforms.

It’s funny, it was kind of a logical progression. The nightclub business is essentially the most uncivilized part of the hospitality industry, the most cultured being the hotel business. At the time, there was a sort of war going on in New York City, which the press was stoking up – between Donald Trump, who was one of the new generation of hoteliers, and Harry Helmsley, who represented the old guard. I stood in the middle and thought: Boy, I should do that! back then?

What you did then was completely “out of the box” – nobody had ever thought of creating anything like boutique hotels.

To us, it felt

quite natural. But for the guests it was something new. Because the hotel trade is so capitalintensive, it did not encourage new ideas. Everyone did what had been done before, just in a different color.

Another provocative move in your career was stepping away from the Gramercy Park Hotel, and announcing that you were going to be

I didn’t have anything new to offer, I’d given all I had to give. If I’d had any new ideas, maybe I would have carried on. It’s funny – after all these years, I opened a club again for the first time, downstairs in the basement of this hotel. Really? What is it called? The Basement. I had really wanted to call it “Crazy Box” but it’s now called “The Basement.” It’s a serious, nononsense dance club – not for socializing, like so many today – only for dancing! I once recreated Studio 54 for one night for a friend of mine, and took along my daughters. They are 19, 17, 16 and 15, and they loved it! That was when I thought maybe it’s time for real dance clubs again. That’s why I will open some in our hotels. alive”?

It sounds like you get bored easily, as soon as you find out that an idea is working. Do you then quickly have to find another challenge?

Of course! When I started off, hotels were generic and very similar to each other. Everything was based on a mass-market model. People thought: OK – this works. Let’s roll the concept out from New York and take it to London, Paris and California. But that’s not how it works. I’m not interested in going to Paris only to eat at McDonald’s. I always try to create something innovative and provocative. That’s how I came to take over the Gramercy Park Hotel that was more or less bankrupt at the time. It was not my personal style, but we wanted to do something different. Maybe it was more of an intellectual effort.

together?

Yes, in my beautiful apartment with all my kids. One day I woke up and thought that I always invest all my energy into my work in these great hotels, never into my own place. Some of my friends already had really spectacular apartments back then, so I thought I needed to create a nice home, too. I managed to create a beautiful apartment, with some help from Christian Liaigre and John Pawson. Do you collect art? I like Anish Kapoor, Andy Warhol, Julian Schnabel and all those artists from the ’80s. I also have a couple of Picasso drawings. But I am not one of those captains of industry who collects art just to show off their success. If I see something I love, I buy it. Do you primarily collect artists that you know personally? Yes, exactly. Some of them even gave me pieces of art as presents. Andy Warhol, for example, used to come to Studio 54 and give me things all the time. Thank God, I saved them... (laughs). City?

That puts him right up there with Michelangelo. Well, maybe he was. I will just always remember the man who was walking around Studio 54 at three in the morning. ceeded to become icons?

Schrager’s Hotels 1984 – THE MORGANS The boutique hotel on New York’s Madison Avenue was the first in the Morgans Hotel Group. Andrée Putman redesigned the building, constructed in 1927, using checkered carpets to create a club feel.

1994 – THE DELANO Built in 1947, the art deco style Delano hotel today features on the list of “America’s Favorite Architecture.” Philippe Starck revamped the classic building in Miami Beach in white with dashes of color.

2000 – THE HUDSON Philippe Starck strikes again – this time near Central Park. The bar of the hotel with its signature yellow glass floor provides the perfect backdrop for New York City-based TV shows such as Gossip Girl and Sex & The City.

2000 – THE SANDERSON Philippe Starck’s style transformed this 1960s building in London’s West End – cool! On the ceiling above each bed, there is a reproduction of the picture “The Cloud” by Swedish painter Prinz Eugen.

043_GG_03-2014_GB 43

1988 – THE ROYALTON Located near Times Square and designed by Philippe Starck in 1988, the hotel was revamped once more in 2007. The attractive centerpiece of the building is the lobby with its warm color scheme.

1996 – THE CLIFT Now 101 years old, the Clift in San Francisco was substantially reimagined by Philippe Starck, who took care to preserve the legendary “Redwood Room” in all its wood-paneled glory.

1999 – THE ST. MARTINS LANE Elegant, humorous and sophisticated – Philippe Starck’s design of the St. Martins Lane in Covent Garden is a brilliant synergy of various influences from modern to baroque.

2013 – THE LONDON EDITION Ian Schrager’s second collaboration with Marriott International. The London Edition opened in a Georgian townhouse, and was conceived by Canadian-American interior design team George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg.

“Manifesto”: this vase produced by Lalique with the strategic name was recently launched in Paris. Limited editions are available in black and clear crystal.

Using steel, concrete and glass, Zaha Hadid created a building with distinctive pleats: the Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum (2012) in East Lansing is part of Michigan State University.

The extension to the onestory brick building of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in Kensington Gardens created by Zaha Hadid consists of a tensile structure, which bears an undulating roof.

Inspired by classical Chinese architecture, Hadid designed Galaxy Soho in Beijing around a series of courtyards. It features two towers, a mall, office space and an entertainment complex.

Made in Italy – these words invoke elegance, casual cool and style. An image that was co-created by the Kartell company, founded in 1949 in Milan, when the colorful plastic products by Castelli & Co. arrived in the austere households of the post-war era. The plastics revolution of the 1960s saw Kartell’s international breakthrough with innovative pieces of furniture, many of which are still considered classics today. TEXT: Uta Abendroth

“Kartell was the first company to believe in the beauty inherent in plastics, a material both noble and aristocratic.”

Mix of styles: Philippe Starck’s chair “Masters” is an homage to Arne Jacobsen’s “7” series, as well as to the “Tulip” armchair by Eero Saarinen and the “Eiffel” by Charles Eames.

German Art & Italian Grandezza

Villa Meissen now resides in the Casa Carcassola-Grandi in Milan, a building that dates back to the 16th century and is one of the most historically important, privately owned buildings in the city. Here, in its stylish new premises on the Via Montenapoleone, Europe’s ďŹ rst manufacturer of Chinese porcelain from 1710 showcases its entire collection, including gold and porcelain charms in the shape of pugs and keys, classic china dinnerware, handcrafted sofas, armchairs, tables and lamps, and most recently: the creations of Berlin-based fashion designer Frida Weyer.

Meissen Reloaded Meissen is ready to take on the world. The Saxony-based porcelain manufactory has branched out into furniture, jewelry and, last season, added haute couture to its portfolio – a new strategy to raise the venerable company into the realm of international luxury brands. Chief executive TEXT: Tanja Pabelick Christian Kurtzke has been setting the course for the past six years.

In the past, Meissen focused only on white gold: for centuries (as here, c. 1900) porcelain painting was exclusively a male domain.

In all the innovations being launched, Meissen remains committed to its tradition, art and skill. Historical elements often reappear as details, sometimes with a cheerfully ironic twist. For instance, the pug, a recurring and popular motif throughout Meissen’s history, now features as a stylish pendant.

the most elegant women in the world wear the most glamorous pieces of jewelry. However, before these jewels reach the red carpet in front of the Palais des Festivals, they have already traveled a long way. The origins of the jewelry, particularly the gold and gemstones used to make it, are an important issue. It is for this reason that the Geneva-based jeweler Chopard is taking a new, sustainable approach, which it calls “The Journey.” Chopard’s process starts right at the beginning of the value chain, with traceable sourcing of sustainably produced, fairtrade raw materials. The diamonds in the Green Carpet Collection have been selected according to strict criteria. In partnership with Livia Firth and her company Eco-Age, Chopard has recently joined the Green Carpet Challenge, an initiative that aims to combine an ethical approach with aesthetic appeal. t the Cannes Film Festival

A

of hundreds of taut sails cloaks the King Fahd National Library in Riyadh, and elegantly plays with the visual aspects of concealing and revealing. The squareshaped new building designed by Dortmund-based architecture firm Gerber Architekten integrates the library’s old 1980s structure in an unusual way: the cruciform building, which is topped by a dome, is hidden inside, behind the light-weight frontage. The graceful steel cable construction was inspired by the region’s tent designs and fabric folding screens. It allows views into and out of the building, and acts as a sunshade while affording a maximum of light and transparency. “Our aim as architects is to create a built environment which touches people and inspires a longing in them. An environment that they like to frequent and enjoy being in,” says Eckhard Gerber. “We would like to add to the attractiveness of the urban landscape with our buildings. They are beautiful in their simplicity, but also offer an exciting use of space.” The new King Fahd National Library is located right in the middle of a city park and acts as a focal point for an area in the prestigious Olaya business disUA trict, whose prominence is set to further increase in the next few years.

THE ORIGINAL – THE LUGGAGE WITH THE GROOVES In 1950, RIMOWA issued the first suitcase with the unmistakable grooves. Since then, it has evolved into a cult object in its own right. To this day, the original RIMOWA luggage has lost none of its fascination. It remains the luggage of choice for all those who seek the extraordinary – including model Alessandra Ambrosio. www.rimowa.com
