T Dear Reader,

his year has been a very special year for me – not only as an entrepreneur, but also on a personal level. There are three events in 2018 that have primarily contributed to this, events that I look back on fondly: our 40-year company anniversary, the relocation to our new corporate headquarters, and the completion of a chronicle of the Engel & Völkers brand to mark our anniversary. I have always been convinced that great things can best be achieved incrementally. And that is precisely the goal we at Engel & Völkers have pursued over

the last four decades. A small local realtor has thus grown into one of the world’s leading real estate service providers.

This evolution fills me with great pride, and so celebrating 40 years of Engel & Völkers with our associates, friends and the global Engel & Völkers network was important to me. Our newly built HQ in Hamburg’s HafenCity area provided the perfect venue for the anniversary celebrations in September. A few months ago, all the colleagues in the corporate headquarters moved into their new offices and now fill the building with the Engel & Völkers spirit. To mark the anniversary, we have not only opened a new chapter, but have also taken a look back: The Story of a Brand –

40 Years of Engel & Völkers chronicles the beginning and company history of E&V. On the way to becoming a unique brand, we have overcome many challenges and achieved exceptional milestones. I have always considered these to be incentives to grow as an entrepreneur, to learn new things and to create new ideas. We want to continue writing our success story and establish Engel & Völkers as a global luxury brand. To achieve this, we will be making use of digital and modern technologies, so as to make the communication between our customers and advisors even more efficient. At the same time, the personalized support provided by our knowledgeable experts will remain central to our real estate services. If you are already dreaming of a new home today, you will, once again, find a collection of the most exclusive properties from around the world in this edition of GG Magazine. Let us inspire you! Sincerely,

8

Simply classic! Known as one of the biggest names in interior design today, Axel Verwoordt has always been just as passionate about art, antiques, real estate and curating collections. His distinguished clients include royals, rock stars, financiers, tech tycoons and artists, all of whom regard Vervoordt as an absolute expert – particularly when it comes to breathing new life into classic manor houses and castles. The Belgian visionary has put a lot of careful thought into his own lasting legacy and has built a small family empire with his wife, May and his sons, Boris and Dick. We had the wonderful opportunity to visit the ­Vervoordt family in Antwerp to take a closer look at their many ventures. Just as famous – but more known for his love of bright colors – is the British designer Sir Terence Conran, whose pop designs influenced people’s tastes in living rooms around Britain before taking over the world. Each stunning creation from the haute couture House of Dior is in itself a classic – as is the impressive Château de V­ aux-le-Vicomte outside Paris, which three brothers have filled with new life. With this issue, we’d like to show how classic style can indeed be very be modern, original and relevant today. Enjoy your read!

Yours,

THANK YOU CONTRIBUTORS

Close-up

CHRISTINA LIBUDA  It is no coincidence that journalist Christina Libuda has chosen to live in Hamburg: It’s a gateway to the world. She is constantly traveling for her job, seeking out interesting places to visit and impressive people to meet. For the current edition of GG, she spoke to Frenchman Alexandre de Vogüé about his life in the stately Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte just outside Paris.

Tea with a legend

  EVA MÜLLER-MAY AND SIR TERENCE CONRAN  Author Eva MüllerMay has long been a fan of the influential designer Sir Terence Conran. When she lived in London in 1989/90, she would meet friends for Saturday brunch at Sir Terence’s Bibendum Oyster Bar, which was usually followed by a trip to the Conran Shop. She still has the olive wood salad bowl she bought there. However, the conversation at the Andaz hotel in London was the first time she met the designer in person. Conran delighted Müller-May with his sense of humor and his frank, down-to-earth nature.

Seaworthy 

KIM BÖSCH-WIECHMANN  Three months ago, Kim Bösch-Wiechmann joined GG Magazine as art director. Since then, she has sent countless layouts to print after discarding at least twice as many and having had about three times as many cups of coffee in the process. A few weeks ago she got married on a steamboat – on Hamburg’s Alster Lake, of course. Her second favorite companion, four-legged Karlsson, occasionally also brightens up our day at the office.

12

  AMBROISE TÉZENAS  The works of the award-winning French photographer Ambroise Tézenas are featured in preeminent publications all around the globe. The Paris-based photo journalist has traveled widely, especially in Southeast Asia and Central and South America. Since 2001, he has been mainly focusing on landscape documentaries. His 2007 book about the rapidly changing city of Beijing (Beijing: Theatre of the People) enjoys international acclaim.

Exploring a universe

OUR COVER STORY – THE VERVOORDTS  For our cover story about the multitalented Belgian interior designer Axel Vervoordt and his family, the GG crew traveled to a suburb of Antwerp in September. This is where the Vervoordts turned a former distillery into a unique creative space: Kanaal. Pictured here, left to right: photographer Mark Seelen, photographic assistant Thomas van Schaik, author Eva Karcher and GG’s creative director Janine Weitenauer.

Expat 

RON KRUEGER  Ron Krueger is an Engel & Völkers ­license partner in County Cork. He has lived in Ireland for the last 14 years, working as an investment banker in Dublin before opening the E&V Shop in Kinsale ten years ago. Krueger has two young daughters and lives a few minutes’ drive outside of Kinsale. He finds the area’s coastline and colorful towns and villages simply delightful.

in Hamburg’s harbor area via the red carpet. Friends of the company attended the event, among them actor Joseph Fiennes, singer Vicky Leandros and the Marqués and Marquesa de Serdañola from Spain. Many of the guests have been associated with E&V and its founder Christian Völkers for decades. In the two-story atrium, they were met by stunningly set and decorated ­tables complete with white tablecloths, white roses and lighted candles. The construction of the new corporate HQ, which boasts views of the Elbe River and the Elbphilharmonie concert hall, started three years ago. Renowned U.S. architect Richard Meier had won the contract in an international competition over rival designs from Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster. In part, this was due to Meier’s use of white surfaces, a feature of his unmistakable style. After all, white – along with red and black – dominates the Engel & Völkers brand image. During the three-course dinner, Christian Völkers took his guests on a trip through E&V’s company history – from a small broker’s office to one of the world’s leading real estate companies.

 HAIN  REACTION C British designer Lily Kamper has a wonderful weakness for unusual material mixes featuring resin, plastic, gold and diamonds – as is ­immediately obvious when you see her striking jewelry: real conversation pieces that are guaranteed to drop jaws.

COME TO THE TABLE  Shuffleboard is a game with a passing resemblance to boccia. This smart table version by designer Sean Woolsey has a maple top and walnut legs. Available in various sizes.

Who wants to play?

Board games, pencils, birds’ nests and art with echoes of geometry.  ELF-CONTAINED HOME  Chilean firm Premium Box recycles shipping containers S and turns them into houses. This model by architect Pedro Sandoval Rivera was created in collaboration with Italian wood coatings expert Milesi and finished with a matt water-based coating called Hydrocrom. Great to look at and great for the environment.

MAKING A POINT  Back in 1933, Maison Caran d’Ache created a now-legendary sharpening machine for its pencils. Its iconic, elegant design is just as contemporary today as it was then. Now the Genevabased boutique manufacturer has relaunched the practical cult object in a refreshing shade of rose gold. The exclusive edition is as sparkling as champagne and crafted with the same precision as a Swiss watch.

PLAYGROUND INTERVIEW

From hand to hand Robbe & Berking has been known for fine silverware since 1874. Since 2008, the German manufacturer is also known as an expert for replicas of old yachts. Craftsmanship and quality are essential in both. Mr. Berking, Robbe & Berking is the world’s biggest producer of ­silver cutlery. You’re the fifth generation of your family to run the company. How does that feel? Good. In times when a lot of families only gath-

er around the same table at Christmas, it fills me and my staff with pride to show that it’s still possible to create successful, timelessly beautiful products entirely by hand. Products that are passed down from one generation to the next.

1

Your company makes both silver-plated and solid silver cutlery. How

From the hallmark on the back. Next to our master craftsman’s hallmark, i.e. Robbe & Berking, there’s a crescent moon, the international symbol for silver, and the number 925. That indicates the most valuable and the purest silver alloy for silverware, which is 925/1,000 sterling silver. How should it be taken care of? Daily use is the best way to care for it. Silver only blackens and tarnishes when it’s left in the drawer. All of our cutlery is dishwasher-proof. And silver only gets more beautiful when it acquires a patina and shows signs of usage. Some manufacturers offer their silverware with what’s known as a “butler finish” – at a premium. To put it simply, they give the cutlery a “used” look even before it’s delivered to the customer. can customers spot the difference?

Your silver graces tables in the Kremlin, Germany’s Office of the Federal President and varithat the normal setting for

A beautifully laid table is their nornal setting and natural environment. And that’s something you mostly find in private households. But not exclusively: More than half of the world’s 200 biggest private yachts are equipped with our silver, as are numerous restaurants – more than 150 of which are Michelin-starred. your products?

What kind of reception does your silver meet with here in its land of

3

origin? Germany is the world’s biggest market for silver cutlery and accounts for more than half of our sales. You started restoring classic cabin cruisers and yachts years ago and eventually founded a boatyard that builds replicas of old yachts. Are boats your true passion? I’m an enthusiastic sailor, and the idea

28

of the boatyard came to me during a regatta in Norway. I think the brand is solid proof of the fact that anything that happens under the name Robbe & Berking has something to do with passion – whether it’s a set of cutlery or a beautiful yacht. When you take a closer look, you realize that the two enterprises are actually very similar: They use premium materials – silver here and wood there – to meticulously hand-craft products of such timeless beauty that they accompany and delight their owners for years and years and eventually become cherished heirlooms. And that’s just as true of the family boat as it is of the family silver.

When Axel Vervoordt talks about Japanese painter Kazuo Shiraga, the pace of his speech quickens and his eyes become a brighter shade of blue. Shiraga’s work “taps into the deepest stages of meditation,” Axel tells us; the colors just explode on the canvas with “the energy of the Big Bang.” We’re here together admiring a particularly magnificent Shiraga painting inside a former malting distillery on the Albert Canal in the Antwerp suburb of Wijnegem, where the 71-year-old Belgian designer has created a monumental, unprecedented live-work-art complex: Kanaal. ure cosmic power!

t’s only his most recent project:  Axel,

a multi-talented, internationally acclaimed art dealer and collector, furniture designer and interior architect, real estate developer and life philosopher, is possessed of a creativity that knows no bounds. (Though he hates being referred to as a “decorator,” he won’t object to being called an “artist.”) Within the past five decades, Axel, born in Antwerp in 1947 to a racehorse dealer and an urban renewal enthusiast, has built an internationally successful empire along with his wife, May, and – from the 1990s onward – their sons, Boris and Dick. Axel sums up the uniqueness of his life’s work in just a few words: “If has to feel like it’s always been there. Then it’s real.” His ability to create an atmosphere of exquisite simplicity has made him into a sought-after design guru, with a client roster that includes the Belgian royal family, Kanye West, Sting, Robert De Niro, Calvin Klein, and Bill Gates. According to Vervoordt, all of them – like him – long for substance, “for an authenticity behind the dazzle that surrounds them. They want to feel in harmony.” The way to this sense of balance requires a deep consideration of one’s individual needs.

That inspiration came to him early on: As a boy, Axel watched his mother, whom he called “Mani,” buy and renovate old houses in Antwerp. When Axel was 21, Mani gave him the tip for his first property acquisition: “fourteen rather dilapidated houses from the 16th and 17th centuries in the Vlaeykensgang, an alley in the old town behind the cathedral,” Axel explains. “My father lent me the money and I purchased them all on Easter, 1969.” Together with his mother, Axel renovated the townhouses, and eventually, he moved into one of them with his young family. As he began working with antiques and furniture and building up a stable of clients, the natural place to invite them was to his home – and thus it became the first showroom for his dealership. “That was the best way to show them my world,” he explains.

reproducing reality.” His soulful pictures are in great demand for advertising campaigns. Paolo Roversi was born in 1947 in Ravenna in northern Italy. This was the year Christian Dior presented his first haute couture collection at the Avenue Montaigne in Paris, in the salons of the townhouse at number 30, a place that has since attained legendary status for fashion experts and enthusiasts. Back then, just after the end of the war, the resources were scarce. That didn’t stop the designer from making lavish use of fabrics. He created a silhouette that marked the end of the austere, uniform-like wartime style and which electrified the entire world: The “New Look” used light colors, petal shapes, round shoulders, nipped-in waists, full skirts, tulle – fashion had become feminine again. The collection catapulted Christian Dior to global fame and acclaim. The designer, who had originally studied political science, ran an art gallery and dreamed of becoming an architect, was not just exceptionally creative, he was also an astute businessman. Accordingly, he changed the silhouette every six months: zigzags and tulip shapes, the H, A and Y-lines. And, of course, the matching accessories. The styles a lady was wearing in the spring would be turned upside-down by the time fall came around.

that only happens when the legendary couture house Christian Dior and the celebrated photographer Paolo Roversi present a joint book: Dior Images Paolo Roversi, a sumptuous collection of color plates. This dazzling 170-page retrospective presents breathtakingly unique dresses from between 1947 and 2017. Just like Champagne can only come from the region of the same name in France, haute couture – the high art of dressmaking – is a protected term used exclusively for custom garments made in Paris. Since 1868, the association Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Française has been in charge of deciding when a fashion house is deemed worthy of the haute couture epithet. After World War II, there were around 200 haute couture houses in Paris; now, only 14 full members remain. Twice a year, the exquisite garments are shown in the fashion capital, hand-sewn and embellished in countless painstaking hours of work. Each dress is unique and eye-wateringly expensive, but deservedly so.

V Château de

aux-le-Vicomte


A 17th century masterpiece with roughly 100 rooms, the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is situated just outside Paris.

Once the inspiration for Versailles, the baroque Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte near Paris is today managed by three brothers from a family that has been taking care of this stunning estate for five generations. They use modern marketing techniques like crowdfunding and hold a lovely Christmas market that attracts half of Paris. Far from being outdated, the château makes visitors feel that history is still being written here. GG stopped by for a visit. TEXT: Christina Libuda PHOTOS: Ambroise Tézenas Photofoyer

That was quite awkward, so we ended up moving to the rooms at the back of the château.” However, the large ballrooms remained his playground. If Alexandre was to lead a tour around the château, he could probably tell visitors a personal story about each of the rooms, not just recount the tales told by the murals. The paintings are the picture books of his childhood. As Alexandre got older, he was drawn to the world outside the château walls. He traveled widely and his love for nature and the mountains finally took him to the Alps, where he spent 15 years working as a mountain guide on Mont Blanc. He would hardly mention his home. No one was really interested in who he was or where he had come from, anyway. But this has all changed: Today he wants to share the history of the place he calls home with everybody.

Nor does the interior hold very many surprises: baroque murals and furniture and ceilings so high that you could easily fit another building inside it. It is an ­archetypal château and yet, something about it feels different, and there is a homey, almost cozy atmosphere inside. This is because the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is not your average palace-turned-museum but rather the home of the de Vogüé family. Alexandre de Vogüé, the youngest of the three brothers, is someone who loves welcoming guests into his home. This is a good thing.

“My purpose has always been to serve people. To make it easier for them to enjoy their lives.” SIR TERENCE CONRAN


s if receiving guests for tea  in

his living room, Sir Terence Conran is reclining in a Karuselli Lounge Chair, a hefty Cuban cigar in hand, his walking stick nearby. Except we’re not in his home but at the Andaz London Liverpool Street, a five-star hotel in the city’s East End. And not just in any room but in the (RED) Suite, the multitalented designer’s latest masterpiece, where 30 percent of the nightly rate goes to (RED), an initiative launched in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver in the fight against AIDS. The 80 m² space was furnished personally by Conran according to his own distinctive tastes. “I know Bono well, and the design of this suite was a matter close to my heart,” he explains. He had a wall painted Conran blue – the signature hue of his tailored shirts – then picked out his favorite pieces from The Conran Shop: the Eames chairs, the Castiglioni Snoopy lamp, a replica of one of his coffee tables – and the Karuselli, of which the suite features one in cognac and one in in red. “The Karuselli is so comfortable that I’ve spent many a night in mine at my country house in Berkshire, after a good film and a whiskey. My wife is always trying to coax me out of it,” he explains, grinning. He gestures toward the L-shaped sofa in the suite: “The fuchsia was the only mistake; I thought I’d ordered it in red,” he recalls. “But when it arrived, I almost preferred it.”

quickly outgrew the space, and in 2016, the museum reopened in a Kensington building that had been renovated by architect John Pawson. “That was perhaps the most important moment of my life,” says Conran. The innovative aesthete has changed people’s tastes in Britain and beyond, democratizing the way we live by making stylish household goods, furniture, and décor affordable as early as the 1960s, when “everyone in London was shopping at Habitat, especially in the kitchen department,” he recalls. “Even the Beatles.” Habitat’s modular furniture, which Conran claims could be “transported on a Vespa,” also paved the way for the popularity of IKEA. Conran’s response to his success reflects his characteristic modesty. “My purpose has always been to serve people, to make it easier

t’s hard to argue that Conran has made any real mistakes 

in the 65plus years of his international career, however. Over the decades, he has founded and managed four companies: his original furniture factory in 1949, the Conran Design Group in 1956, the Habitat homeware retailer in 1964, and the Conran and Partners architecture and interior design studio in 1990. He has owned and designed hotels as well as hundreds of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars around the world, and written over 40 books, including several cookbooks. From his flatware designs to his airplane interiors, he is constantly generating new ideas; he has even renovated entire city neighborhoods. For his accomplishments and services, Conran was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1983. With a fortune of an estimated £85 million, Conran has also contributed significantly to the larger cultural landscape of his home city: In 1989, he founded and financed The Design Museum in East London.

for them to enjoy their lives. Money was never the point, everything I’ve ever done for work or business I’d have also done for pleasure.” This may explain why he continues to work even at his advanced age. It brings him joy to brighten people’s lives. “I was a war child. Everything around us was gray.” Only in nature, in the countryside, was the world opulent and colorful, he recalls. “Especially the native wildflowers and the butterflies. All of that shaped me,” he says. “As a result, color remains of utmost importance.” Conran’s love of design came about at around age 10, when he constructed a bookshelf for himself using old planks. “Upon completing the piece, I felt a certain ecstasy,” he recalls. His mother supported his talent, setting up a studio for him in the shed

and supplying him with tools. Later, he says, “pure frustration” drove him to become an entrepreneur: He was studying textile design in London, living in a horribly furnished student room and unable to find any furniture that met his standards, so he made his own.

W

hen he left school at the age of 18,  Conran

began sharing a workshop with Scottish sculptor and pop artist Eduardo Paolozzi, a friend of his. It was 1949 and materials were still scarce. But then one of his earliest chair designs, which was made from thin metal frames with white ropes forming the backrest and seat, caught the eye of Pablo Picasso, who ordered two for his studio in France. A few years later, Conran’s creations were being sold at Britain’s best-known furniture stores. Yet they weren’t exactly big sellers. “Our products looked entirely out of place in those dreary shops,” he remembers. “They didn’t stand a chance.” Conran decided to start producing pieces on a larger scale for a younger clientele and to offer his favorite designs in shops of his own. A trip to the Dordogne in 1953 was to be a turning point for the young designer, who was captivated by the French way of life – especially the dining culture, which inspired him to learn how to cook and eventually open his own eateries. He was particularly fascinated by the weekly markets where, as he recalls, “fruits and vegetables were piled up into huge pyramids.” He would later emulate this arrangement in his Habitat shops, where unpackaged tableware, glassware, kitchen utensils and more were stacked up to the ceiling. Since Conran has been in the business for decades, we couldn’t help but ask: Is good interior decoration different than it used to be? “Not at all. Design should always be simple, beautiful, functional ­and surprising!” says Conran. “And leave out the bling: Good style is about understatement. For example, Bauhaus-style modular shelving and Italian lighting with splashes of vibrant pop art color.” Conran’s personal life is as multifaceted as his career: He has been married four times and has five children. Allegedly, he has already arranged for his ashes to be shot into the sky to Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks. But that’s all in the distant future, he assures us. “There are still so many projects to realize,” he says with a laugh. And there’s living in the moment: “Tonight I’ll be enjoying crayfish from the brook that runs through my country estate. With fresh garlic from the garden.” His wife will take care of the preparation – and then his beloved Karuselli awaits.

In addition to modern comforts and amenities that are second to none: The main house featuring an open plan living area with a double height ceiling (left) has been maintained in a top-quality condition and newly renovated, just like the guesthouses and guest cottages (top left). The buildings are constructed from coarse grey stone so typical for Ireland. This sleek look with its primeval origins is continued in parts of the interior. There is a tennis court and a helicopter landing pad (below), an idyllic ruin (left) and a shipwreck playground (below right). The omnipresent sea views can be enjoyed from every single property on the island.

The designers who work for Boffi and De Padova need to anticipate trends if they want to stay up to date. For kitchens, it can take four years for the initial idea to be translated into prototypes and eventually the finished product. By comparison, a couch is relatively quick to develop: three to four months for the prototype and then about six months until it goes into production. 1 In modern architecture, the bedroom and bathroom are merging. The cozy bathrooms from Boffi are ideal for these open spaces. 2 Straightforward design and quality materials: De Padova furniture with the “Xila” kitchen 3 “Combine Kitchen ambient” by Piero Lissoni 4-6 De Padova showroom with designs by Achille Castiglioni et al.

To mark the 100th birthday of the Bauhaus, this volume showcases all the pivotal works and the stories ­ ehind them: from Wilhelm Wagenfeld’s lamp and Marianne Brandt’s tea pot to Marcel Breuer’s “Wassily” b armchair and Walter Gropius’s buildings. The book also explores how far ahead (maybe too far ahead) of their time all these objects and structures were, and so became icons. Impressive!

Stylish Stable

hilien architect Matías Zegers  is crazy about horses. Ever since he rode for the first time at the age of two, he has had a keen interest in the animals, their care and husbandry. When he was tasked with building a stable for 14 show jumpers at the foot of the Andes, it was important to him that the animals be kept in an environment that was as natural as possible and only used a minimum of artificial light. To achieve this, the roof of the ­576-square-meter stable features a central skylight that runs the whole length of the plywood structure and suitably illuminates the work area. Inside the building, curved gables connect the ceiling and the walls, and decrease the amount of light entering the boxes so the horses can relax.
