We welcome the community to the official opening of Simple, the first step in Slow’s transformation of a scenic stretch of beach just outside the favela-like fishing village of Cova de Vapor on the relaxed northern end of Portugal’s surf-friendly Caparica Coast.

Dinner on the Spree

Marina Marina, Berlin
05.08.2021

Chef Frederik Bille Brahe previews his plans for the Marina Marina kitchen over a specially curated dinner at the Slow offices. Frederik helped transform the Danish culinary scene with his laid-back, arts-inflected, contemporary vision, opening Apollo Kantine & Bar in 2017 in the historic art space Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Nyhavn and, a year later, Kafeteria in the National Gallery of Denmark, which he designed in collaboration with the artist Danh Vō.

Most recently, Frederik teamed up with Slow to create Sofi bakery in Berlin’s Mitte district. His places are different, but they have a few things in common: very good, unfussy food, a lived-in feel for aesthetics and a vibrant, good-humored social mix where artists, matriarchs, club kids and diplomats might all feel equally at ease.

Exhibition

Jason Kriegler Exhibition

Tulum Treehouse
26.03.2021

Tulum Treehouse welcomes our new exhibiting artist, Merida-based textile painter Jason Kriegler. Drawing influence from traditional textile design, Jason incorporates abstraction to create contemporary works that blur the lines between painting and textile art. His pared-down paper embroidery paintings suggest organic, biological forms but can also be experienced purely as abstracted combinations of shapes, line and texture.

Despite their simplicity, they have a captivating quality that reveals the complexity of hand embroidering onto paper, enlivened by a sense of depth that only seems to grow with continued examination. The exhibition runs for six months.
