Office Insider visits


A halogen sign on a stout, frosty window leads you into the office in upper Neukölln, where dusty brick walls and bookshelves full of contemporary  design books play the part for the endless stream of music. “We have DJs walking in and out of here all the time,” says Ari Stein from his dimly lit office where a Pump up the Volume cover hangs on the cork board. “It’s cool. But at the end of the day, we’re a bunch of guys trying to do our best.” The dishtowel hangs from a huge silver hoop in the kitchen. Coffee grains are scattered lovingly across the counters. Bikes fill the courtyard outside family-style, and odd rural art fills the space inside, giving an air of an off-season circus.
