SARAH JOHANN bags travel around the globe

By | Work

I’m thrilled to announce that SARAH JOHANN was selected for the „Handmade in Germany Worldtour“, organized by Direktorenhaus Berlin. This international exhibition presents a selection of contemporary high-quality products from 180 German manufactories, artisans and designers – world-renowned luxury brands like Faber-Castell or Rosenthal as well as young manufactories like Frau Tonis Parfum. The exhibition started in Saint Petersburg, continues to Asia, the Middle East and America before finding its way back to Europe.

Next stop is Tianjin, China, during Tianjin International Design Week, 13-17 May.

SARAH JOHANN & Semidomesticated

I’m excited to be part of this year’s advent pop up shop, hosted by Semidomesticated – a Berlin based lifestyle publisher and agency dedicated to slow living, sustainable design and conscious consumerism.
The shop is filled with sustainable, mindful and local design objects & gifts, located on Pücklerstraße 17 in Berlin-Kreuzberg – right opposite Markthalle Neun.


SARAH JOHANN for Tilo Schulz

By | Work

I’m really happy to present my latest side project: a custom-made bag for the special book edition „Schritt, zwischen“ by German artist Tilo Schulz.

The book was made about his installation at Haus der Kunst in Munich where Schulz built a copy of the original exhibition space out of a dark material and turned the space about 18°. A specifically written poetic text was installed as an audio piece. The book consists of a 10“ vinyl record, 5 leporellos and an introduction, all found in a beautiful slipcase. It was published by Verlag für moderne Kunst, sponsored by Federkiel and designed by talented graphic designer Ulrike von Dewitz.

For the book release I was asked to create a limited bag edition. I meant to seize the image of the shifted space and developed the idea of a double bag where both cases relate to and depend on each other. One case contains the main book and a second case with a press button is designed for the vinyl record. Both bags are sewn on top of each other slightly shifted. The black cotton canvas and the silk-screen printed label create a nice contrast to the petrol blue of the book.
