Vladimir Karaleev, a highly coveted young designer based in Berlin, moved his studio from Mitte to Kreuzberg this summer, from a tiny, Plattenbau room on the rather dull Leipziger Straße into a bright, industrial building just next to bustling Markthalle IX and its many delicious food vendors. (His favorite is the recently opened Italian bakery, Sironi.) He joked about just getting used to the long distances in between his sewing machines and the drawing and cutting table, since his new space is about five times bigger than the last. Alas, there are certainly worse problems one has to cope with.
