Tidying up...


2010: One of the tasks yet to be completed is the clean-up and remodeling of the sidewalk and street in front of our new space. With the right machinery it shouldn't be much of a problem, though...

Firmament relocation mid May

2010: Things are moving on fast forward these days with getting everything prepared for the new Firmament location. The relocation and opening of the new store will be announced very soon.

Friday, 23 April 2010

Images...


2005 - 2010: We can only estimate how many images - product shots, highlight- and newsletter-graphics - were produced over the past five years. Many thousands, that's for sure. If there is time, one day, it would be cool to compile all of these for a poster or book.

Onsite construction

2010: As most of you know by now, Firmament will relocate to a new location. Above a recent shot of the dry wall construction inside the new store. Still some work to do, but we will announce the opening very soon.

Firmament Cabinets





2006 - 2010: "What are those cases? Old refrigerators?" - this is probably the one question we have been asked the most at Firmament. And it was always fun explaining the details of how we got them, where they were from, and - surely - what they are. In one of our earlier posts we already mentioned their former location. The above is a photo of these cases still 'in action' at Frankfurt's main station from a few years back.

Since we won't be bringing these cases with us to the new location, we are looking for a new home for them. If you are interested in purchasing these as a set or individually, please get in touch with us through our website for more information regarding pricing, etc.

Concrete

Firmament v1.0

2006: February we moved into our loft in Schröderstrasse 8 in Berlin Mitte. The cabinets once displayed the departure times above the tracks on Frankfurt central train station before they ended up displaying Visvim shoes at Firmament in Berlin.

Moods, Sketches, Renderings...


2010: The first moods for this project were developed in the summer last year. Since then we went through a number of different set-ups, sketches, and detailed renderings. Soon we'll be able to see how our ideas were transformed into an actual interior...

Acronym

2003: After being introduced to Munich based brand Acronym shortly after their foundation, a close relationship with Michaela and Errolson has developed over the years. Acronym was the first clothing and accessory line that we sold through The-Glade and is still one of the most requested brands in our portfolio. Their revolutionary design and excellent production skills set Acronym way ahead of its time. Every new collection release is definitely a true highlight each season.

Etc.


2010: Besides the one big project we're working on there are at least two dozen related smaller ones running parallel... Our project sheet contains 10 tabs with numerous to-dos. The above is one which, hopefully, we can mark as "done" tomorrow.

Early collaboration

2005: One of our earlier collaborations was with One True Saxon during the days of Ian Paley. As a small company it was a great opportunity for us to work together with a respected brand.

Originally developed for the Japanese market only, the One True Saxon x The-Glade Field Jacket was limited to a total of 30 pieces and in a special colorway for The-Glade exclusively. Each jacket was also individually numbered.

One True Saxon are still alive and well, check them out here: http://www.onetruesaxon.com

The-Glade V1.0


2005: Five years ago The-Glade.com looked like this (the above is a draft with placeholder images...). There was no physical store at the time, however, some people showed up at the office - in Munich - no matter what. A fact that got us thinking...

Beinghunted * The-Glade.com * Firmament


2001: Before The-Glade and Firmament there was Beinghunted. One of the first brands that sparked the idea - to launch a platform to talk about clothing, collectables, sneakers, etc. - was A Bathing Ape/Very Ape UK which was literally unavailable at the time...
