LUMA POP UP BASEL
For a limited time – from 15 October 2016 to 1 April 2017 – the “LUMA POP UP Steakhouse at Jonny Parker” offers selected meats in the idyllic pavilion in the St. Johanns Park. They are prepared outdoors on the legendary Green Egg ceramic grill.
The “LUMA POP UP Steakhouse at Jonny Parker” is: undescript and surprising! Only selected fresh meat from LUMA D.A.C. are grilled on the charcoal grill. Calf, beef and pork is matured with natural, noble mold fungus to reach a maximum level of delicacy. An unmistakable aroma which leads to a unique taste excitement. The gastronomic experience also includes delicious side dishes and an attractive wine offer.
All this makes the “LUMA POP UP Steakhouse at Jonny Parker” an exceptional address for a dinner with friends and family or for a special business dinner.
Annika and I arrived at the LUMA POP UP for the pre-opening on Friday, October, 14, 2016 around 7 PM. And we started our dinner night, with delicious butters and different kinds of warm buns. I really love the tiny wooden cutting board and enjoyed the small appetizer a lot. I gotta find out where I can get these cute boards. It would be perfect for butter and jam for my “sunday morning breakfasts on a tray” in bed. 🙂
Now lets have a look at the LUMA POP UP menu. The starters and the main dishes are written on black boards. A very neat idea. Annika chose: LACHS MILLE FEUILLES and the LUMA ART BEEF CUT FILET. I went for the KÜRBISCREME SUPPE and the POP UP VEGI SPECIAL.
Our greet from the kitchen was a LUMA meat ball and a vegetarian Knödel with black chanterelles. Annika loved the meat ball and my Knödel was really delicious. It was the first time I had black chanterelle – Totentrompete – a tasty mushroom. (more)
Our starters looked like that. In the first photo you can see Annika’s salmon mille feuilles with dill lemon panna cotta. Followed by my pumpkin cream soup sprinkled with truffle oil and chestnut crumbs.
Let’s have a look at our main dishes. Annika’s LUMA ART BEEF CUT FILET and my POP UP VEGIE SPECIAL. So far everything looked and tasted delicious.
Last but not least we reached the dessert. We were quiet full and decided to share something sweet. Our choice was this lovely creation below called lemon cream. Mmmmhmmm, it tasted divine.
We had a great time at the LUMA POP UP at JONNY PARKER in Basel Switzerland. And will for sure recommend it to you. The owners recommendations are the ASIAN LUMA BEEF SALAD as a starter and the LUMA PORK NECK and the LUMA BEEF BURGER. I found some interesting information on their website:

PINK RIBBON CHARITY WALK 2016 with LUBEX ANTI-AGE
The Pink Ribbon Charity walk was a big success. I had lots of fun with TEAM LUBEX ANTI-AGE with whom I ran already last year. Pink Ribbon Charity Walk is taking place for the ninth time with 5,000 runners from 22 Swiss cantons.
Overall CHF 88,000 were raised and donated to the Swiss Cancer League. The annual breast cancer solidarity event has once again demonstrated the solidarity of the Swiss population with those affected, because the Pink Ribbon Walk is not about their own victory, but about putting a big sign in the fight against breast cancer in the community.
LUBEX anti-age had a booth at the Stadion. There they were handing out samples and gave helpful information about their awesome products. At the booth one had the chance to get a free hand massage treatment with the Lubex anti-age hydration oil. I would have never thought to use this oil for the hands, but indeed it works super well.
The PINK RIBBON CHARITY WALK 2016 was lots of fun. I heard that it was fully booked three days in advance. Thats awesome! In case you wanna run for a good cause next year check pink-ribbon.ch for more information.
Do you know already their newest serum? I had the pleasure to test it in the beginning of the year. Here you can read more about it. http://www.isawsomethingnice.ch/2016/03/ready-for-something-new
Thank you TEAM LUBEX ANTI-AGE it was a blast! X

VOLTA, the renowned art fair for new international positions, debuted in Basel in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA’s inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair. VOLTA has already created a brand known and respected for its strict selection of exhibiting galleries and artists, including a growing list of alumni who have graduated to the main fairs. Former exhibitors like A Gentil Carioca (Rio de Janeiro), STEVENSON (Cape Town / Johannesburg), One and J. Gallery (Seoul) and bitforms gallery (New York) ascended to Frieze and Art Basel after exhibiting at VOLTA. Likewise, artists including Theaster Gates, Chris Johanson, Zilvinas Kempinas, Cameron Platter, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, and Adrian Williams have shown in prestigious events like the Venice Biennale, the Orangerie (Paris), dOCUMENTA, Art Basel’s Art Parcours and Art Unlimited, following their featured showings at VOLTA.
Art Basel – Messeplatz
June 16-19 2016
how to get there: TRAM: 6, 2, 1/14 (stop: Messeplatz)
as you may all know, the Art Basel week is my favorite week in Basel. next to the main Art Basel show there are many other side fairs like, Design Miami Basel, VOLTA, SCOPE, LISTE, THE SOLO PROJECT, RHY ART FAIR, PHOTOBASEL, EAF and many more. at the moment I am trying to put together an agenda and share all the highlights with you.
are you familiar with the history of Art Basel?
three Basel gallerists put their passion and determination behind an ambitious vision to form an international art fair. now, Art Basel stages the premier international art shows, providing platforms for galleries and artists from around the world. art gallerists Ernst Beyeler, Trudi Bruckner and Balz Hilt of Basel create an international art fair that proves to be a success from the start. more than 16,000 visitors attend the inaugural show to see 90 galleries and 30 publishers from 10 countries.
only five years after its founding, the Basel show reaches its current size of almost 300 exhibitors. the participating galleries come from 21 countries, attracting 37,000 visitors.
the Art Video Forum platform debuts. Pipilotti Rist and Enrique Fontanilles are the first recipients of the video art prize endowed by the main partner the swiss bank corporation.
the Unlimited platform revolutionizes the classic exhibition booth by creating an open-plan environment that plays host to all types of ambitious contemporary media: installations, monumental sculptures, large-scale paintings, video works, and performance arts. first special exhibition devoted to Artist Books, an art form ordinarily accorded marginal attention at art fairs.
a series of panel discussions were introduced with leading members of the art world providing exclusive access to first-hand information on collecting and exhibiting art. panelists include prominent art collectors, museum directors, biennale curators, artists, art critics, and architects. under the title of Public Art Projects, projects of an institutional scale are presented in the spacious, revamped exhibition area on Messeplatz.
debut of the Parcours sector, expanding the show beyond Messeplatz, presenting site-specific public artworks and performances in the historical neighborhoods of Basel. the new Feature sector, replacing Art Premiere, offers gallerists a chance to participate in the show with historical material, solo shows by artists of all ages and precise curatorial juxtapositions.
this year I will focus on the works of Dan Holdsworth and the design of Sebastian Errazuriz for the collectors lounge booth of Audemars Piguet. stay tuned for more. X

thank you very much for inviting me to the BAUHAUS-INSPIRED DESIGN event at the HUGO BOSS store in Basel. It was super nice to meet the Hugo Boss Team and I got to see lots and lots of nice pieces from the fall/winter collection and also some really nice pieces from the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection.
the food and beverages were very nicely served and tasted delicious. the water was served in those fancy vintage water dispensers, I have no clue what the correct term for that is. in case you know please leave a comment below. I heard that they were especially rented from a collector just for that very event. I had a very tasty refreshing home made lemonade, a seasonal mushroom soup and delicious chocolate, that I never thought I would like as it was made with olive oil. I was really happy that I was brave enough to try it – I think I had at least three or four pieces. it was delicous, big UP for the catering from ZH!
so a couple of weeks ago I was invited to see the mechanical ballet and the new BAUHAUS exhibition at the VITRA design museum. in case you wanna know more about it click here >>
today I had a look at the catalogue of the exhibition and I saw lots of nice things. the book is also great to present heels, check out those gorgeous blue heels – they are to die for!
now these are some of the pieces that I like from the current fall/winter collection. I totally like the powdery wool winter coat, the red dress from the window and my biggest favorite: the blue heels.
and now lets talk about the gorgeous fall/winter capsule collection by JASON WU for BOSS WOMEN. there were some of the pieces in the shop to have a look at, unfortunately this collection will not be sold in Basel. but I m sure that the ladies who wanna buy something from this collection, they will find a way to get it in a shop that sells it : ) more about the shops and where to find the collection on the HUGO BOSS website.
these two pieces are inspired by ANNI ALBERS the famous german/american textile artist and printmaker. the skirt and the coat are very much related to a carpet that ANNI once designed. JASON WU designed the BOSS WOMEN capsule collection and they found an italian family business that made the tweed for them. another stunning piece are the black, grey, orange boots EMERALD BOOTIE F with a very special detail on the heel that I unfortunately forgot to capture but you can see them here >> I was only able to find the black and white ones but you can really see the nice detail on the heel.
thank you for the give away – I love it and I just made some space on my coffee table. it is indeed the perfect coffee table book. that was it from the event in Basel. X
thats the name of the new exhibition at VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM
(26.09.2015 – 28.02.2016)
I was invited by HUGO BOSS to see the mechanical ballett before the vernissage of the new DAS BAUHAUS exhibition at Vitra Design Museum. that was really something, I have never seen anything like that and I am so happy to have had the chance to see it. during the whole play we were not able to see the dancers. they were hidden behind their geometric shapes in different colors. they moved sometimes alone sometimes together with the slow and fast music. I have found it super interesting to see the moving shapes and to see how with every move a new form and new shape was born. I was sometimes guessing how the people behind must be bending themselves in order to achieve those patterns and moves. also the whole thing had something very architectural. I sometimes saw layers of section plans or weird building shapes. thank you again for letting me see this, it was wonderful.
about DAS BAUHAUS :
With the major exhibition »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« the Vitra Design Museum presents, a comprehensive overview of design at the Bauhaus for the first time. The exhibition encompasses a multiplicity of rare, in some cases never-before-seen exhibits from the fields of design, architecture, art, film and photography. At the same time, it confronts the design of the Bauhaus with current debates and tendencies in design and with the works of contemporary designers, artists and architects. In this way, »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« reveals the surprising present-day relevance of a legendary cultural institution. Bauhaus artists and designers featured in the exhibition include Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Lyonel Feininger, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky and many more. Contemporary participants include the works of Olaf Nicolai, Adrian Sauer, Enzo Mari, Lord Norman Foster, Opendesk, Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Alberto Meda and Jerszy Seymour. The mission of the »Staatliches Bauhaus«, founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919, was to educate a new type of designer. Students at the Bauhaus were to acquire artisanal and artistic foundations as well as knowledge of the human psyche, the process of perception, ergonomics and technology – a profile that continues to define the occupation of the designer to this day. Yet the concept of design at the Bauhaus also gave designers a comprehensive creative mandate: they were not to merely fabricate objects of daily use, but should take an active role in the transformation of society.
about the exhibition :
The exhibition is divided into four thematic groups, beginning with a look at the historical and social context of the Bauhaus. A second section examines iconic but also lesser-known design objects from the Bauhaus, as well as the history of their origins at the junction of art, craft, technology and industry. A further area of the exhibition investigates the theme of space and demonstrates how many different designers were involved in formulating the understanding of design at the Bauhaus – including stage artists, architects with their deliberations on minimum dwellings and artists who developed colour theories and spatial models. In this regard, the Bauhaus reveals itself as likely to be the first artistic »total experiment« of the modernist period, exploring the dissemination of design in all areas of life. The last section considers the communication of the Bauhaus, from typography and exhibitions to experimental film art and photography as well as the – often systematically planned – creation of myths and clichés that continue to surround the Bauhaus to the present day. »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« is accompanied by an over 400-page publication, which contains an extensive illustrated catalogue section as well as essays by renowned authors such as Arthur Rüegg and Patrick Rössler along with a glossary of key concepts and terms relating to design at the Bauhaus. »The Bauhaus #itsalldesign« is an exhibition of the Vitra Design Museum and the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundeskunsthalle). Following its debut at the Vitra Design Museum, the exhibition will open at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn in spring 2016.
