The home of Erik Spiekermann
As I would have suspected, the master typographer Erik Spiekermann, has a deluxe, modern house in Berlin. Some features include a full Bulthaup kitchen, a bookshelf that requires a hoisting harness to peruse it, and prismatic windows that allow warmth from the sun to pass through only when hit at a low angle. Sold yet?
On the fifth floor is the office of Spiekermann and his wife Susanna Dulkinys—a designer. The sixth floor is the kitchen and living area while the seventh floor is the bedroom. All of the surfaces of the house are painted a shade of light grey. It keeps the interior bright and cool but not cold.
Susanna Dulkinys on keeping the house’s interior free from clutter:
It’s like creating white space so you can free your mind and be creative.

That’s what living the dream looks like. Very Inspiring.

What kind of press is that last picture? Wondering if they use it.

Wonderful neutral palette. It really brings the focus to the wooden features.

And he’s got a hot german wife to bang every night, no wonder he’s all smiles.

What a boring place of zero atmosphere. Not as depressing as his designs. The workshop seems nice though…
