In this edition: the UEFA Women’s Euro, flyboarding, kinetic sculptures by German designer Joachim Sauter, Bregenz 2013 and the German bag label Bree
The UEFA Women’s Euro
Winning Ground is the anthem for the event. The singer is Eric Saade, a Swedish pop star who won third place at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.
Soaring like a Superhero
Flying high above the water, several meters in the air, or diving beneath the surface, like a dolphin. Invented in France, flyboarding boasts some spectacular stunts. The first world flyboard championship took place last year. And now, in places like Lake Garda Italy, anyone can get in on the fun.
Poetry in Motion
For his latest project, award-winning German multi-media artist and designer Joachim Sauter has teamed up with the Islandic composer Ólafur Arnald. "Symphonie Cinétique" at Berlin's Berlin MADE Gallery features Sauter's kinetic scultpures in a choreography that fuses light, sound and motion in space.
The Magic Stage
Mozart's Magic Flute is on the program at this summer's Bregenz Festival on Lake Constance. As always, designers have aimed to wow the crowds with their amazing stage set in the lake. Euromaxx reports from the premiere.
On His Own
The German bag label Bree has been turning out durable, functional and no-frills designs since the 1970s. As a boy Philipp Bree modelled the classic leather school backpacks made by his father's company. After a stint at the helm, he's left the family firm and launched his own label, PB0110, with the aim of producing some classics of his own.
