Because Berlin is proud to be a city popular among expats, it never ceases to display a wide range of international approaches to things. The same goes for design and today we’d like to introduce Granit – a unique Swedish lifestyle brand that aims to help you organize your life so that you have more time to enjoy it.
This simple yet ingenious idea dates back to the spring of 1996, when Anett Jorméus and Susanne Liljenberg decided to open up a store specializing in functionality and storage. Their offer quickly expanded from interior decoration to products like bags, accessories, stationery, and even deli items. Read on to find out what makes their products stand out and where can you find them in Berlin.
It’s Spring and you know what is one of the favorite rituals for Germans to do in Spring? Bringing everything back in order in the house. We also call it “Frühjahrsputz” meaning Spring Cleaning. Of course in Berlin this means finally bringing all the beer and Club Mate bottles that have piled up in the corner back to the Späti to receive some Pfand, changing out some Automaten photos from some ex lovers with new ones and bringing that stack of vintage clothes that become unfashionable back to the vintage shops.
But if you really want to be a pro about the Frühjahrsputz you also have to consider some re-styling and re-decorating. Because every year is different in Berlin and this should also reflect in your own four walls.
We teamed up with the interior experts of Granit who recently opened their first store in Berlin on Rosenthaler Straße in Mitte to come up with some interior ideas that reflect the spirit of Berlin. Granit hails all the way from Sweden and naturally the Berliners are eating it up as they love everything from Scandinavia. They offer interior products as well as household and office accessories with a very minimal, timeless and iconic design. It’s a total match made in heaven with the style of Berlin that has a quite raw, industrial aesthetic.
