The home of Erik Spiekermann & Susanna Dulkinys

June 16th, 2011

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.

    Wow what an amazingly beautiful house. It makes sense that Spiekermann’s design sensibilities also can carry over to interiors and architecture. Thanks for posting

    Awesome pics again Shelby. I was wondering what paneliing they use in the shot of the the camera’s and pushpin organization of scissors rulers and adapters. It’s exactly what I’m looking for here @ bonsai to resurface our “play” area so we can pin up projects in various states. It appears to be some type of composite but any insight would be great. also those, what appear to be magnetic push pins are awesome!
