Berlin Cushions

Facade cushions for architecture lovers

The new cushions by s.wert are inspired by new and old facades of the capital and also the colourful subway stations by Rainer G. Rümmler play a role.

A building with a funky façade was completed in 2017 directly on the banks of the Spree between the Reichstag and Hauptbahnhof. It is called Futurium and was designed by the Berlin based architects Richter & Musikowski.

City West has shot up a lot in recent years. The City West cushion shows the facade of the Upper West skyscraper on Kantstrasse. The 119 m high building was designed by Christoph Langhof.

The facade of today’s Rocket Tower can be seen on the GSW Hochhaus cushion. The GSW high-rise – the name was changed to Rocket Tower in 2017 – with its colourful façade has been shaping the image of Rudi-Dutschke Strasse since 1999. It was designed by Sauerbruch Hutton.

The pillows Kosmos and Wohnmaschine are a tribute to Berlin’s post-war modernism. The Sternradio cushion, which looks like a robot, is inspired by a Wilhelminian style building on „Greifswalder Strasse“. On the roof of the building there are still the remains of a huge music cassette. In GDR times the VEB Sternradio advertised there with a neon advertisement for „Qualität zum Hören!“ And the Regenbogenhaus pillow proves once more that prefabricated buildings don’t have to be dreary. The colourfully painted block buildings are located on Roederplatz in the district of Fennpfuhl.

The cushions Fehrbelliner Platz and Nauener Platz are colourful and trendy. These cushions were inspired by the underground stations designed by Rainer Gerhard Rümmler. Both stations have been listed since 2018.
