Enjoy a Long Night with Monoqi’s Stylish Designers

By David Knight |

Monoqi is helping make working the night shift a lot more stylish thanks to a new event. The startup is taking part in the ‘Long Night of Design Studios‘ which will see designers show off their latest work to the public from 7-11pm on June 7.

The event has been inspired by the Long Night of Museums where Berlin’s best attractions stay open late to try and attract potential new patrons. With special public transport laid on to help people move around the different museums, it has proved to be wildly successful since being launched in 1997.

Six designers from the company’s portfolio will be on display at the former bank which serves as HQ for Monoqi, an online service which curates the best in new design, allowing users to buy stylish items they may not otherwise have been aware of. It launched earlier this year, operating from its base in style-obsessed Berlin.

And it will be hosting some of the hottest young design startups for the Langen Nacht der Designstudios, to give it its German name, which has been organised by DMY and Create Berlin. Alex Valder, Wednesday Paper Works, The Fundamental Group, Tokyo Bikes, Anne Boenisch and Axel Pfaender will be presenting their latest projects at the Monoqi office on Mollstrasse in Mitte, which was formerly a branch of Dresdner Bank and Commerzbank.

And the unusual surroundings will provide the ideal setting for an evening look at a mix of tradition and innovation in design.

The event is part of the 10th DMY International Design Festival in Berlin which begins on June 6. You can find the Monoqi office at Mollstrasse 1, on the corner with Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse diagonally across from Soho House.
