STANDART is Cologne, Germany’s First-Ever Concept Space


Cologne — a 2000-year-old German city renowned for its High Gothic architecture — has finally received its first art concept space with the launch of STANDART.STANDART came as the brainchild of HYPEBEAST veteran Andy Chiu and German football legend Lukas Podolski. The pair shared a passion for “raising the standards,” whether it’s for art, design, fashion, or street culture, leading them to create Cologne’s very first concept space.Located in one of Cologne’s busiest and most popular neighborhoods, STANDART is based in a space previously home to Made In — a devoted skateboard shop that ran for almost 30 years — breathing new life into a historically and culturally rich space. As to the store itself, aside from holding a cafe and art gallery, STANDART also provides retail options from high fashion to streetwear, covering brands such as Visvim, WTAPS, sacai, John Elliot, or ACRONYM.As the two founders say, “The space evolves in regular periods with art, culture and everything we love,” so whether you’re based in the neighborhood or you happen to be traveling through this fantastic German city, STANDART is definitely a must-visit.To learn more about the concept space, head over to STANDART’s website now.For more things design, Medicom Toy has crafted a silver-plated “Beckoning Cat” BE@RBRICK. STANDARTHahnenstraße 2050667 KölnGermany View this post on Instagram WE CALL IT THE ART OF RAISING IT.
