IZAKAYA & SIR NIKOLAI HOTEL
A memorizable Opening Party created by Cc
Oh what a night! After opening Sir Adam in Amsterdam and Sir Savigny in Berlin the Europe Hotels Private Collection (EHPC) decided that Hamburg should be the next city that needs some "Sir feeling". Overwhelmed from the amazing design and the unique atmosphere of the boutique hotel, Cc felt honored to be asked to conceptualize and organize an opening party for the brand new Sir Nikolai and its in-house Japanese kitchen IZAKAYA in Hamburg. As always Cc wanted to create an event that excels the expectations of the guests and distinguishes itself from common parties. And this is what we did. Because of Sir Nikolai’s outstanding location next to the canal Nikolaifleet, we installed a water-like video mapping on the hotel facade as an attention getter. In addition Cc came up with the idea to play with the special hotel character and transform the Sir Nikolai into a world of Japanese adventure. While there was a big party with 1.000 people dancing to DJ Mitch Alive, Dada Disco or Hip Hop Act Esticay downstairs, curious guests discovered the rooms upstairs. What they found here became the whisper topic of the night: a hotel room on the one side of the corridor in which guests could get a tebori tattoo by Japanese tattoo artist Bizzo and a meditation room on the other side, where people meditated guided by zen-monk Jion Blonstein. Guests were also amazed by the obscene "Making Out Room" by french Kimono designer Davina Shefet and her 6 performance artists and enjoyed being photographed in a hotel room completely filled with paper flowers by paper artist Freya von Bulow and Manuel Pandalis behind the lense. Sir Nikolai and IZAKAYA were able to show it’s distinctive trend affinity with a fascinating party that embraced their local community. Cc is proud to be part of this hot new "place to be" in Hamburg from the very beginning.

Pop-Up Exhibition at Neuer Wall Hamburg
Circle Culture X Rebelle
In response to the great popularity, Circle Culture is delighted to extend its activities in cooperation with Rebelle. Until the end of April, Cc’s affiliated gallery will be presenting the solo exhibition “Unbekannte Größe“ by Oskar Rink at Neuer Wall 72 in Hamburg. After launching the Pop-Up space with the group exhibition COME ALIVE!, the second exhibition will be comprised of paintings, installations and photographs from the current works by artist Oskar Rink. Growing up in ther father Arno Rink’s studio, she learned the fundamentals of painting early on. Based on the artistic impulse to build and construct, she developed her own language, which is characterized by a constant alternation between the two- and the three-dimensional. By way of translating various impressions and experiences into diverse artistic media in ongoing iterations, she creates different contexts of perception. This pictorial process of cognition is vividly portrayed in the exhibition.

IZAKAYA RESTAURANT OPENING
Cc & Circle Culture hosting Preview Dinner
Those fascinated by innovative culinary concepts have a new place to get together at a fantastic location directly by the Nikolaifleet canal in Hamburg: IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar. Friends of Cc and the affiliated gallery recently had the chance to catch a first glimpse of the latest opening of Amsterdam-based The Entourage Group, that is part of the new boutique hotel Sir Nikolai. IZAKAYA presents modern Japanese cuisine with South American influences – it’s an outstanding shared-dining concept that will suit the cosmopolitan nature of Hamburg. The Entourage Group has already celebrated multiple successes including Amsterdam restaurants Momo, Mr Porter and The Duchess, and international brand The Butcher, with five locations in Amsterdam and the recent opening in Berlin. IZAKAYA Amsterdam opened in 2012 and has become a firm favourite of locals, celebrities and the international jet set crowd. Cc is responsible for the creative concept of the opening party of Sir Nikolai and IZAKAYA, with an art section curated by Circle Culture.

FERRARI @ ITALIAN DESIGN DAY
Lecture with Flavio Manzoni, Head of Ferrari Design at Italian embassy
Lately Cc had the pleasure to be in charge of the event coordination and organization on behalf of Ferrari for the Italian Design Day. The international series of events under the title of Italian Design Day was developed with the goal to bring the uniqueness and excellence of Italian design to the forefront on a global scale. The German edition was hosted by the Italian embassy in Berlin in the form of a guest design lecture including the Head of Ferrari Design, Flavio Manzoni alongside Moroso Owner, Patrizia Moroso. Guests from various creative industries such as Architecture, Industrial Design and the Arts were invited to the interactive presentation which was moderated by Claudius Seidl, Feuilleton director of Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. This event has given design professionals based in Germany the possibility to meet and dialogue directly with Mr. Manzoni in order to discover the values that can be considered at both the base of Ferrari Design and the role that it plays in Italy’s international reputation.
