#heliumcowboytakeover of the Mercedes me Hamburg
with ADAMEVA, Elmar Lause, Alex Diamond. Moderated by Judith Waldmann
Elmar Lause & Alex Diamond 
We'll start off this week with an artist talk on Tuesday, Dec 12 (7 pm). Moderated by Judith Waldmann, manager of the Affordable Art Fair Hamburg, we invite visitors to chat with Marie Suberg & Larissa Kerner from ADAMEVA, Elmar Lause and Jörg Heikhaus aka Alex Diamond.
Throughout the week, Elmar Lause and Alex Diamond will paint live at the store. We will create a unique studio scenario, allowing the artists to work face-to-face with two large-format canvases between them. Knowing the fine humour of these two guys and the friendship among them, we expect this to be a very entertaining week for the visitors of the Mercedes Me Store ...   
The finished artworks will be presented at the end of the week at the vernissage of Elmar Lause and Alex Diamond, which will also mark our final event of the #heliumcowboytakeover at the Mercedes me Store on December 19.

Alex Diamond designs 'Geberit Water Lounge' for Stefan Marquard's new Restaurant Hase+Igel

Earlier this year Alex Diamond has been invited by celebrity chef Stefan Marquard and by Geberit, the european market leader in sanitary technology, to develop and execute an artistic concept for the luxurious bathroom facilities of Marquard's new restaurant called 'Hase & Igel'.

The restrooms are equipped with Aqua Clean shower toilets and beautiful, high-end luxury modules by Geberit (called 'Monolith'), which Alex Diamond included in his artwork, using silkscreen printing on the glass parts. The entry and hallway in front of the bathrooms underwent a massive paint job, and now the whole environment is called the 'Geberit Water Lounge' - and it is absolutely not your average restroom anymore ...
Same with the restaurant: 'Hase + Igel' is definitely a very different culinary and aesthetic experience, Stefan Marquard and his whole crew certainly know the meaning of Punk, and are living the Rock'n Roll life, be it in or out of the kitchen.
