Bad at gift wrapping? - Bikini does the job!

The Berlin artist duo Stills & Strokes, known for its striking collages, makes Bikini Berlin sparkle for Christmas.

For a cross-space installation, they have created a special Bikini Berlin gift paper. This is presented as a 45-meter-long, floating band of paper strips both in front of the panorama window as well as in the entrance areas and with its colors and patterns create an artistic Christmas atmosphere. The design does not correspond to a classic pattern. Instead, the gift paper has a striking function. Inspired by pop-art, bright colors and striking patterns are drawn through the entire design.

Stills & Strokes is known for its colossal collages and has already worked for brands like Diptyque Paris, Lamy, Nike or Zalando. Magazines like Interview Germany, GQ Italia, Flair Italia, Sleek Magazine and SZ Magazine have enjoyed working with the Berlin artist duo for fashion and lifestyle series, they have recently designed a photo spread in the ‘Unikat’ supplement by Vogue. 

Special: You are welcome to take home the artistic gift paper! From the 26th of November to the 24th of December, you can get your purchased gifts wrapped for free at the pop-up station on the ground floor of the Bikini Berlin, or simply pack it yourself - with three different motifs to choose from. The packing station is open daily from 10: 00-20: 30 h.

To stay energized during Christmas shopping, there are various tasting stalls installed. There are delicious chocolate creations from Wohlfarth waiting for you on the ground floor of the mall. Berlin Winter keeps you warm with its legendary apple hot drink and Emory's cookies spoils you with homemade biscuits. If you can’t get through the cold season without traditional Christmas pastries, you will find yourself at the Rock Paper Café shed.
Go by, they will look after you!
