STORY / PROJECTS / Bocci Berlin

Bocci Berlin

Since making Berlin our continental European base in 2008, Bocci has been active at the centre of the city’s thriving design scene, which in turn has become integral to the brand’s DNA. From 2015 to 2020, Bocci operated a museum-scale space in the city, hosting exhibitions, dinners, and collaborations.

In 2021, Bocci co-founded Wilhelm Hallen, a creative campus in north Berlin. This site acts as a creative commune at the intersection of multiple artistic and design fields. Among its residents are:

  • Keinemusik, a collective of Berlin-based DJs and producers

  • Mehdi Chouakri, an established Berlin-based gallery

  • Ramboll, a Danish engineering and architecture practice

  • Henning Larsen, an international studio for architecture, landscape, and urbanism

Wilhelm Hallen’s early twentieth-century brick warehouses sit on a vast 20,000m2 site within Berlin’s Reinickendorf neighborhood. The buildings include Berlin’s oldest iron foundry, in operation from the early 1900s until 2014, highlighting the area’s industrial heritage. The complex’s charm and appeal come to the fore when exploring its narrow alleyways, which offer a glimpse into its past life—when its mighty halls forged bridges, chains, rollers, and weights for over a century.

Bocci Berlin is set to open at Wilhelm Hallen in November 2023. One of the site’s industrial halls will host Bocci’s showroom and exhibition space, including interior architecture designs by Bocci co-founder Omer Arbel. The Berlin studio will feature regularly rotating exhibitions from artists, designers, and other creatives, both from Wilhelm Hallen and Bocci’s wider international network.
