The food and drinks were in sync the theme and the DJ’s rocked the place. So here is video of the party, it is basically impossible to capture a real party on film.
On January 29th, 2009 adidas and No 74 celebrated 60 years of Soles and Stripes with an exclusive House Party. The adidas No 74 store was redesigned to resemble a real apartment including kitchenette, bath- and living room and decorated with several lovely details such as framed images of Adi Dassler and supporters from the past sixty years of adidas history. Local DJs joined the party with a mix of great hip hop tunes, funk and electro music. Watch the video & Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us!

Ami Drach & Dov Ganchrow came up the “+/- hot plate”. They silk-screened gold or Amorphic Metal films onto ceramic plates. If you connect the to an electric source, the current will run through the pattern on the plate and keep the food warm. But why would you want to eat warm chocolate mouse?

You will never guess what this is.
It’s called ‘Twilight’ and it’s an urn for aÂ Â placenta in pink gold. It was designed byÂ Benjamin Graindorge, he is part of the design collective Duende.Â They are having this exhibition with aÂ collection of objects that explore the sharing of food between mother and child, really strange stuff if you ask me.
You can find more of these objects at dezeen.Â
