How it all began…
PAULINA’S FRIENDS’ birth was in the Concept Mall Bikini Berlin nearby Kudamm in September 2016. We had a popup store for 6 months in a very vivid, “bazar-like” style. On display were interdisciplinary art and design objects of international designers in permanent change. The store was a very high investment, but also a huge success!
Then we moved to the Gartenstr. 114…
… in a permanent gallery space. Paulina and her artists & designers spent 3 whole years in Berlin-Mitte. A space, into which Paulina’s lifeblood flowed. The concept was retained, but the exhibitors, the rhythm, the opening hours, and finally the priorities completely changed. It turned out that chance and serendipity rules the store. In the end it turned out, that we don’t need a store in order to bring the spirit of PAULINA’S FRIENDS into the world.
The rest is history…
an independent concept store for art and design, for objects that inspire delight. Our pop-up store in Bikini Berlin and the online gallery will bring together emerging newcomers and established artists and designers alike. We discover, present and promote unique objects on the cutting edge of art and design — interdisciplinary, synergistic and interactive. Through our wide assortment and its dynamic, salon-style presentation we will set ourselves apart from the listless monotony of the world of consumerism. On our platform, international writers, curators and journalists will discuss innovative perspectives in the arts, aesthetics, and all that makes life delightful and worthwhile. Paulina’s Friends will also function as a resource for consulting and unconventional art dealing, with a focus on creativity and new ventures.

What distinguishes us…
are art and design objects that impart beauty, humor, love of life, eagerness to experiment, and profundity. Here, urban life, the culture of the workshop and sophisticated chic meld together. We understand art as a holistic experience. We set ourselves apart from the exclusivity and the elitism of the contemporary art world, which still meets handicraft with prejudice and stereotyping, opposed to artificially intellectualized concept art. Beauty is existential, and should therefore be accessible and affordable for everyone.
