WELCOME Dear Reader, ith the purchase of my vacation property in Mallorca, I fulfilled a personal dream over 20 years ago. As a child, I used to spend time on the Spanish island with my parents and my brother every summer. Mallorca has become my second home. I love the climate, the culture, the warmth of the people and the stunning landscape. In my finca on the southwestern coast, boasting views of the Tramuntana Mountains and the sea, I have found a sanctuary. It is where I enjoy tranquility and find inspiration to develop new ideas for the company. For our clients, too, the purchase of a vacation property makes a fervent wish come true. Around the world, second home ownership has been on the increase. On the one hand, this is due to the current low interest rate environment. On the other, exclusive real estate in desirable areas represents a stable investment, or a crisis-proof retirement plan. The demand for vacation properties in Germany is undiminished. Especially sought after are second homes on its North and Baltic Sea coasts, and in its Alpine region. In high-end vacation spots like the island of Sylt, property prices have reached levels that keep pace with those in top locations in German cities. In other parts of Europe, traditional locations offer the best investment potential. These include the Mediterranean, with islands like Mallorca, Ibiza, Sardinia and Malta, as well as the Côte d’Azur and ski resorts in Switzerland and Austria. Here, exceptional properties not infrequently fetch “collector’s prices.” Buyers can find more moderate price levels along the coastal regions of the Spanish mainland and in Portugal. In Italy, second homes around its northern lakes and in Tuscany are in equally strong demand. Vacation homes in established U.S. destinations like Florida or California are a very good investment, too. There is a simple rule that applies everywhere: the more exclusive the location, the scarcer the supply and the safer the investment. If you would like to get closer to your dream of owning a second home, read on. In this edition of GG we once again showcase a selection of the most beautiful real estate from around the world. Sincerely

WELCOME

Scandinavian style rocks! It was on a trip to Antwerp that I noticed her label for the very first time: Anine Bing. Her boutique on Drukkerijstraat is one of eight flagship stores worldwide that the former blogger and model from Denmark will have opened by the end of this year. She also supplies more than 300 stores around the world with her cool and wearable collection. For all this success she only used social media as a marketing tool. Who is this woman that is leading the fashion industry with her fresh ideas? We were curious, and only a few weeks later I was able to meet Anine in Los Angeles, her home. A super charming, surprisingly genuine and modest woman. A loving and dedicated mother and fierce businesswoman who is all about the Scandinavian motto “Less is more.” The Swedish designer Cecilia Bönström is behind Zadig & Voltaire, which was launched by her husband Thierry Gillier, grandson of the Lacoste founder. The power duo lives in Paris with their four children and a stunning collection of contemporary art. The history of the Danish company Vipp is that of a true family business. In 1939, Holger Nielsen invented a pedal bin for his wife’s hair salon. The chicest trashbin to date is part of the constant collection at MoMA in N.Y.C. and today, Vipp also creates kitchens and furniture and has even produced a very modern prefab home (page 54). We hope you enjoy

HELENA MICHALKE Few people know Hamburg like Helena does. She was born there and lived in half a dozen neighborhoods before moving to the wonderfully rural Volksdorf area with her husband and two children. She loves the North Sea and going skiing. At GG, she looks after the Engel & Völkers license partners.

STEFFI KAMMERER Steffi Kammerer is a freelance journalist and also a filmmaker (My Friend Rockefeller). She lives in New York and Berlin, together with her son, and writes for manager magazin and the Bertelsmann Foundation, among others. In February, Steffi joined GG as copy editor. For this edition, she met Jette and Kasper Egelund, the co-owners of the Vipp family business. Mother and son impressed her just as much as summery, laid-back Copenhagen.

THE “VIPP PHOTO SHOOT” TEAM Creative Director Janine Weitenauer (right) and photographer Mark Seelen (second from left) have been shaping GG’s look for the last 10 years. For this edition, they traveled to Sweden with Art Director Maria Mundt and photo assistant Johannes Häußler for the piece on the luxurious, fully furnished Vipp house. www.gg-magazine.com

Sara met Anine Bing, with whom she regularly collaborates, 15 years ago in Thailand.

A giant festival where art is set on fire. Burning Man draws thousands of visitors to the Nevada desert every year.

Kings of the Desert In the end, all the art goes up in flames and a cosmic calm returns. In the eight days leading up to this facinating climax, it is pandemonium in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. That is when they come together here for Burning Man – ravers, rappers, stars and screwballs, performance artists, freaks, billionaires and hippies. They all party under the scorching sun TEXT: Martin Tschechne PHOTOS: NK Guy/TASCHEN GmbH at the season’s hottest happening.

WEIRD AND WONDERFUL The fantastic photo collages created by Stuttgart artist Matthias Jung depict wild, utopean constructions like this zeppelin. Here, he turns an old engine and a weather-beaten buoy into something from a dream.

Splendid Ideas!

No, it’s the “Eye of the Light” lamp by Polish designer Malgorzata Mozolewska, who takes the inspiration for her metal fabrics straight from nature: bird’s feathers, butterflies or, as in this case, fish scales. The organically shaped copper shade with its white marble foot is bound to add sparkle to any room.

PLAYGROUND INTERVIEW

Art & food In Versailles, he is making a powerful waterfall rain down from the sky (until October). With his “Little Sun” project, he wants to bring light to people who still live without electricity. Ólafur Elíasson likes playing with physical phenomena. Born in Denmark and raised in Iceland, today the famous artist splits his time between Berlin and Copenhagen. In his Berlin studio, fresh food is cooked every day. Mr. Elíasson, at your studio in Berlin you have four chefs who serve freshly prepared hot lunches every day. The ingredients are sourced from local organic farms and your roughly 100 employees all eat to-

gether. That sounds like quite a logistical effort, why did you introduce this?

It is important to me that we all get together once a day to exchange ideas. Not everyone uses lunch to talk about their projects, of course, and sometimes you do need a break from them. What I am more interested in is turning lunch breaks into a communal time that fosters creativity. The way I see it, we connect through the cooking and the food. We serve whatever the produce crate from the organic farm contains, together with copious amounts of herbs. Everything here except the summer barbecue is vegetarian. Part of the reason for this is to do with sustainability. It is quite obvious that we cannot keep eating as much meat as the average Dane or German currently does. If we want to stop climate change, we have to start with our own habits. Apart from that, certain dishes are impossible to make if you want 100 people to eat at the same time. I like it when the cooks try something new every day, and surprise us with diverse and simplified dishes. I once invited René Redzepi, the chef at Noma to come down here. He prepared a dish made of milk skin, grass, herbs and flowers. The herbs actually came from the meadow that the cow had grazed on. of food that is served?

I think that you can draw parallels between the industrial production of food and the art market – not the art world, that’s something different. To my mind, art and cookery are languages. Art is my language – I have learned to use it to express myself. But I’m a lousy cook, which is why I don’t express myself with particular precision when I cook. In order to be a great cook you have to learn that kind of language. But you also have to have something to say, just like in art. resources or ecology …?

Three generations of Egelunds: Jette, son Kasper, daughter-in-law Heidi, and granddaughters Mie and Carla.


Clean lines – a design tradition It all started with a metal pedal bin. Today, the VIPP product portfolio ranges from a dishwashing brush to a prefabricated house. The latter is the brainchild of CEO Kasper Egelund, the grandson of the company’s founder. Like every Vipp product it is straightforward and elegant, every detail well thoughtthrough. Yet the Danish company’s appeal is not only rooted in its firstclass designs, but also in the shared vision and cohesion of the owners’ family.

A change of perspective: Jette Egelund and her daughter-in-law Heidi regularly turn things upside down at yoga. It was important to company boss Kasper Egelund (pictured below with his daughter Mie) to find the right setting for the shelter: close to the water and with an unspoiled view of the shoreline. After a year-long search, the perfect location was found in Sweden: on a lake and surrounded by tall trees. The family’s actual vacation home is on Denmark’s west coast, about a 90-minute drive from Copenhagen. This is where Jette spends vacations with her five grandchildren.

A LIFE IN ART The couple behind the Parisian fashion label Zadig & Voltaire are all about opposites. They are cool and laid back and unbelievably chic – high-end and rock-and-roll. Cecilia Bönström from Sweden and Thierry Gillier from France raise their four children in a 19th-century apartment filled with cutting-edge art. Yet despite having works by JeanMichel Basquiat on the walls, it’s a place where the kids are allowed to play freely. TEXT: Jeremy Callaghan PHOTOS: Gaëlle Le Boulicaut

at the home of Thierry Gillier and Cecilia Bönström, as they would be in any household with four children and two working parents. Yet breakfast – spilled milk and all – is served each day on a piece of furniture that collectors would pay through the nose for. This family is keeping it very real and so a table, even if it is by Charlotte Perriand, is first and foremost, just a table. “It’s my favorite piece in the whole house,” says Cecilia. “It’s beautiful and practical. In many ways it reminds me of a Swedish table. We like things to be very simple; volumes that are pure. We want to be able to place and replace paintings, move them around as we feel works. Sometimes they are hung from the walls but often they are simply on the floor. It’s not art as decoration but art as a way of life.” Gillier and Bönström are the founder and creative director, respectively, behind Zadig & Voltaire, the label that made cashmere cool and defiantly shoved rock chic into the face of the fashion establishment. Cecilia Bönström, a Swedish-born former model, had often driven past a particular building in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, admired the wisteria clinging to its façade, its irrepressible lifeforce persisting as it twisted its way around the window and through the balconies, and quietly wondered: who lives in this place? It once belonged to Baron Haussmann, the architect chosen by Napoleon III to modernize Paris, who used the 19th-century residence as his garçonnière, or bachelor’s quarters. “It was such a fantasy-like vision. And then,” she says, “twenty-four years after moving to Paris, the place became mine.” ornings are a bit hectic

It’s a sign of the times. Everything old is new again. A clear glass divider between the kitchen and main living areas brought light deep into the the interior and added a loft-like contrast. “Every element of the apartment was revisited – it’s like it was redone, top to bottom. It was a job that fell somewhere between restoration and creation.” The real challenge, however, was to turn the flat into a home for Gillier’s significant collection of contemporary art, which includes pieces by Cy Twombly, Dan Flavin, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Damien Hirst. “We did an enormous amount of work to ensure the lighting would be right,” Stanislas says. Her solution: a custom-designed miniature lamp slightly more than an inch long that is integrated into the ceiling so it’s virtually invisible. Thierry Gillier, who studied art at Bard College in the U.S., has over the years amassed a collection of very impressive pieces that occupy the home like old friends. “This apartment, for me, is a loft, made to accommodate modern works, but its ancient context assures the building will always be the master,” says Gillier. “The contents are in perpetual motion,” he adds, referring to the art works contained in what is in itself a noble piece of architecture.

e love clash and contrast,

the tension between feminine and masculine,” explains Cecilia Bönström, whose glamrock style and vision have been instrumental in the unique global success story of Zadig & Voltaire. “We want to dress a woman in a way that is sexy, but never vulgar. She is sexy in a masculine way,” Cecilia once said. “It’s important to stay cool and not go over to the girly side.” Her can’t-go-wrong-tip: Boyfriend shirt (a bit wrinkly) over a pair of tight jeans. When Bönström designs she has women like Kate Moss and Charlotte Gainsbourg in mind. In her collections she refers to style icons like Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Mick Jagger or Jimi Hendrix. She also gets inspiration he five-bedroom apartment from people in the street, whom was remarkable not only for she observes sitting in Paris cafes.

Where Chefs Eat Joe Warwick, Phaidon, approx. € 20

33,200 restaurants, 70 countries and 600 reviewers. After only one edition, this book had already become a must-have for gourmets. In edition number two, even more chefs have developed a taste for it, it seems, and have added their favorite eating spots. Experts like René Redzepi, Yotam Ottolenghi and David Chang don’t just send us into the kitchens of star chefs, but also to places that simply have great food – no matter if you go there morning, noon or night. The book comes with an accompanying app.

Office of the Lower Austrian government, Kerber, € 45

Since 1960, he has been pondering how a space can be made perceptible acoustically and physically. The artist and sound art pioneer Bernhard Leitner explores the relationship between space, sounds and physical bodies. This two-volume work documents his elaborate studio building in the town of Ravelsbach, and is the first to feature sketches, texts and photographs of his installations and findings.

East of the Sun … Noel Daniel, Taschen, approx. € 30

Princes, princesses, enchanted castles and trolls: fairy tales have a strong tradition, especially in Scandinavia. Numerous editions of East of the Sun and West of the Moon have come out over the years, but one of the most beautiful was published in 1914 and features illustrations by Danish artist Kay Nielsen. This reprint of the wellloved masterpiece contains 46 magnificent color plates.

Northern Delights

Emma Fexeus and Sven Ehmann, Gestalten, approx. € 40

The light and airy rooms make you want to take a deep breath. This volume is dedicated to Scandinavian design and showcases the most beautiful houses and interiors on 256 pages. It focuses on the work of new talent keen on sustainability and on locally sourced materials. With every page it becomes clearer why Nordic design and craftsmanship are simply timeless, high-end and functional – and above all, create a homey feeling.

Forlorn, deserted, useless: Tkachenko’s images present forgotten places and objects in Eastern Europe. Once these cities were symbols of progress, so important and top-secret that they could not be found on any map. Today, the remnants of planes and space rockets lie buried in the deep snow. “Every type of progress comes to an end sooner or later. I am interested in documenting it so that some of it remains,” says the photographer.

“For me, life and color are inseparable,” Jacques Henri Lartigue once said. But it was his black-and-white images that made the photographer famous. Lartigue loved life and also loved watching others enjoy it. For the first time, this volume now showcases a fine selection of his color images. It is an homage to life and to smiling, and so delightful that you wish you could step into the images.

"IT IS MY PASSION TO CAPTURE THE UNIQUE AURA OF A WOMAN AND ENHANCE HER NATURAL BEAUTY WITH THE HELP OF MY JEWELLERY." THOMAS JIRGENS

Naturally coloured diamond in a white gold setting.

Naturally coloured diamonds in white gold and macassar ebony.

THE JEWELSMITH In his Juwelenschmiede in Munich, Thomas Jirgens forges only the finest materials into jewellery. He puts great emphasis into the compatibility between the jewels and the skin tone, facial structure and eye colour of his customers. Jewellery should resonate with the person wearing it and reflect their allure.

Although the four seasons determine the colour schemes, the individual style of the woman is more important, as her character should be enhanced through proper selection of jewellery. For this, the master goldsmith, gemologist and diamond appraiser Thomas Jirgens has the necessary eye and expertise.

PARAIBA TOURMALINE "A LOVE FOR ALL ETERNITY" During the late 1980s, in the federal state of Brazil, Paraiba Tourmaline crystals of such extraordinary luminosity were found like never before in the world. Next to Opals, Paraiba Tourmalines are the only gemstone variety in the world that can fan out white sunlight into neon colours. Their "Electric Blue" or "Lagoon Colours" are “out of this world�. In combination with the African Opals, this creates a radiance that brings a smile to those that lay eyes on them.

CLEAR CRISTALS "A VOYAGE INTO THE LIGHT" The carefully selected Aquamarines, in their delicate green-blue shades and architectural cuts, transformed into dramatic sets of two, emphasize the elegance of the wearer and frame her face like a work of art with the mystery of clear water in the light of summer sunshine.

whose prices can compete with those of a sports car is growing steadily. The French brand Richard Mille is experiencing – and benefiting from – this demand. “I have no idea how large our market actually is,” says company founder Richard Mille, 65. “I only know that currently, it just keeps growing.” The Frenchman, who has had a long career in fine watchmaking, founded his own label just before the turn of the millennium, something he says he had dreamt of doing for many years. He wanted to create uncomplicated watches that were a little more modest than those of his competitors. To achieve this, Mille puts his trust in hightech materials and technologies that are also being employed in the development of airplanes and racing cars, such as carbon fiber, special ceramics and highgrade titanium, for example. The company, which has already produced about 25,000 watches (average price € 180,000), has now opened its first boutique in Germany on Maximilianstraße in Munich, one of the city’s most exclusive shopping boulevards. Mille says: “Our products are contemporary and full of respect for the fine art of watchmaking.” he market for watches

reate architecture for its own sake? That kind of attitude is alien to Snøhetta. The Norwegian architectural fim, founded in Oslo by Craig Dykers and Kjetil Trædal Thorsen in 1989, relates every single one of its designs to its context. “Obviously we always want to create something unique,” says Thorsen, “but only if it arises naturally from the circumstances.” That applies just as much to the recently opened extension to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art as it does to the Norwegian Embassy in Berlin with a block of granite at its center, the new building for the Library of Alexandria, the Culture Center at Ground Zero in Manhattan or Oslo Opera House with its accessible roof. Snøhetta, which meanwhile has branches in New York, San Francisco and Innsbruck, doesn’t so much have a typical style as a style all its own. Its interdisciplinary collaboration with creatives from other professions, including landscape designers and artists, plays a major role in its work – all over the world.
