Tom Blankenberg

Music and silence are mutually exclusive. Generally speaking. However, the musician and sound designer Tom Blankenberg convinces you of the opposite. His sound threads weave silence into music. Now his first album has been released – „Atermus“. We visited Tom Blankenberg in his studio in a Flingern backyard.

BESIDE THE AUTOBAHN

What will be the sound of Düsseldorf in 2020? Meike Glass and Thorsten Schaar present six bands of which we hope to hear much more in the future. Brian Storm of Studio Rabotti, an illustration collective from Flingern, has illustrated the local musicians exclusively for us.

Miaki Komuro

Miaki Komuro studied fashion design at home in Tokyo at the prestigious Bunka Fashion College. She has been living in Düsseldorf since 2014 and founded her fashion brand in 2016.

Suzusan

Suzusan is the name of the label of Hiroyuki Murase, called Hiro, who breathes new life into the Japanese craft of shibori. The company is based in a backyard studio in Flingern-Süd, opposite the Weltkunstzimmer, and sells its collection far beyond Düsseldorf. The fabric produced with this special technique has already been worn on Dior’s catwalk as well as byinternational stars like Natalie Portman. THE DORF visited him in his studio to find out more about his label, shibori and his future plans.

A DAY WITH: La Cucina di Casa

We meet Monica Riboni and Valeria D’Amico on a Wednesday morning in Düsseldorf-Düsseltal at Monica’s apartment. The two Italian ladies moved from Milan to Düsseldorf with about 30 other families when their husbands’ company was relocated there.

Kölner Straße – Around the world in two hours

Oberbilk’s heart beats along the Kölner Straße. Starting at Pempelforter Straße, crossing Worringer Platz, past Oberbilker Markt and all the way to Oberbilker Allee — there it is: a road, 2.6 km long, the centre of this vibrant area, which constantly supplies Düsseldorf with new ideas, open minded people and – last but not least – a rich array of products.

Stephan Lomp

Stephan Lomp is an illustrator and graphic recorder. What is a ‘graphic recorder’, some might ask. Imagine life as a comic book.

Murat Avcioglu

Murat Avcioglu is an integral part of Düsseldorf’s restaurant scene. He has now established his own eatery. Laid back, casual and with an Asian touch.

LATE NIGHT DIVES AKA Düsseldorf Spelunken

These places have stories to tell. Often frowned upon but still dearly loved. Things get a bit more excessive and wilder here than in other pubs. The ceilings and lighting are low and if only their walls could talk…

Brian Storm

Wim Wenders, Pharrell, Liam Gallagher and Frank Ocean, they all have received the royal treatment: an illustration by Brian Storm.
