JAPANESE NATURAL WINE tasting with Open Sea

Outside of Japan, few people have ever tasted a Japanese wine. Japan is a young wine region and its new wine culture has emerged in just over a decade. It’s neither old world or the new world, but rather something else, an other world. With a unique and challenging climate and no established traditions for winemaking, Japanese wine 日本のワイン is characterised by open-mindedness and playful experimentation, as much as by terroir and place of origin. It clearly draws inspiration from the global natural wine movement that’s helped redefine what a wine can or should be, and where places such as Jura, Georgia, Tenerife or the Adelaide Hills of southern Australia are as important references as the traditional wine regions. There are no rules for what a Japanese wine should be, and so, it can be anything.

For the first time, this new Japanese wine culture is available in Scandinavia through Stockholm-based importer Open Sea. Their first producer, Fujimaru Winery, makes a series of small-edition wines in central Osaka and Tokyo together with farmers from the east and north of Japan. Originally founded as a wine shop and distributor of natural wines, Fujimaru represents a great introduction to the wide variety of expressions in Japanese wine – from volcanic Chardonnay and fresh, high-altitude Merlot to rare and eye-opening wines made from Delaware, Kyoho and Muscat Bailey A grapes.
The tasting is led by Kalle Färnskog and Rickard Fredén from importer Open Sea, specialising in Japanese natural and artisan wines. The tasting is held in our bar, Alma Trägårdh.

Draken I Rummet – book release

Come and join us  when Malin Roos and Gunilla von Platen will be at Alma Trägårdh to celebrate their book release among friends.

 

Gunilla von Platen was the self made entrepreneur at the top of business with her high heels in the royal salons. 

 

Malin Roos was the journalist who had been working for the tabloid Expressen for 20 years covering sports, entertainment and politics. 

 

It might not have looked like the perfect match – but it turned out to be a really good cooperation. 

 

Gunilla von Platens biography ”Draken i rummet” written by Malin Roos takes the audience behind the glamorous facade and tells the story about a refugee girl growing up in a suburb with eight siblings in a strictly religious home where she further on is confronted with culture of honor as well as abuse and a murder and that starts when Gunillas mother is being shot in front of her eyes. 

 

But it is also a testimony about female power, how Gunilla von Platen against all odds manages to take a position in a male bastion.

 

”Draken i rummet” is published by Albert Bonniers Förlag and is released in stores on Valentine’s Day.

February 12, 16:00

Bokklubb med Bonniers

Välkomna på bokcirkel om ”Normala människor” av Sally Rooney – förra årets mest hyllade roman i England.

Tillsammans med bokens förläggare Åsa Lindström från Albert Bonniers Förlag pratar vi om olika aspekter av romanen: karaktärer, gestaltning, språk och dialog, undertext och vad vi fastnar för. Vi ser fram emot ett roligt, givande och infallsrikt samtal.

Sally Rooney, född 1991, är från Irland. Hon har studerat vid Trinity College och publicerats i en rad litterära magasin. Inför debuten med romanen “Samtal med vänner” (2017) blev hon listad som en av årets mest intressanta debutanter av The Guardian. Hennes breda genomslag med “Normala människor” har jämförts med Zaidy Smiths genombrott med “Vita tänder”.

Pressröster om ”Normala människor”:

”Det händer inte ofta, men det är en stor lycka och en stor sorg när det väl händer – att man får läsa en bok som är så bra att man, när man är klar, instinktivt känner att man aldrig vill läsa en bok igen.”
Greta Thurfjell, Dagens Nyheter
“Årets bästa roman” Times
“…en framtida klassiker.” The Guardian
Boken kan hämtas upp från 2 september i receptionen. Därefter så träffas vi den 18 september, 17.00 i boardroom.

Lena Ahlqvist. Wear it at the gym, in the office or at school, on the beach or at a party, the

The sunglasses are handmade in Sabae, Japan, which is where Japanese eyewear production started more than 100 years ago. Craftsmen from Sabae were the first to produce frames in light yet robust titanium, which is nickel-free and corrosion resistant.

The first collection consists of six unisex models in two colour combinations each. They are made using the best available Japanese titanium and Italian cellulose acetate, based on cotton and wood.

For each collection a new designer will interpret Oh My Eyes. By doing so the brand aims to push the boundaries for eyewear design both technically and aesthetically.

For the first collection Oh My Eyes has commissioned renowned Italian eyewear designer Marco Galleani who has worked in the eyewear industry since the 1980s for brands such as YSL, Gucci, Prada, Miu Miu and Roberto Cavalli among many others. He has created a new technically challenging concept, called The Clip, as a recurring theme throughout the Oh My Eyes collection.

Ikebana vs Freakebana

Join flower designer, Mirja Bozarth Fornell (@bozart) for an afternoon of creative flower styling techniques…and wine!
Ikebana is the Japanese art of arranging flowers. The practice evolved with Buddhist philosophy and is rooted in minimalism and precision. The centuries old discipline features sparse, off-center compositions of local an seasonal foliage —positioned to emphasize form, line, and color. Plants are carefully chosen for their symbolism to the creator or space.
Freakebana, the TURNT cousin of Ikebana, is the new ugly-cool style of arranging flowers. Freakebana is the art of arranging “whatever-the-hell,” in a way that nods at the traditional Ikebana but subs out years of study for a naive, new-wave naturalism.
Limited Seating
Guests will be given one Kenzan each to bring your flower arrangements home. Don’t know what a Kenzan is —get a ticket and find out.

HON Breakfast

Welcome to a roundtable women breakfast discussion lead by HON.

We know many of our members have great ideas that can change the world. Unfortunately, stats indicates that only 1% of all startups get proper business funding in the long run. Raising capital from investors is both time consuming and difficult, especially for first time entrepreneurs. Therefore, a compelling pitch, that is persuasive enough to get in to the VCs head and make them want to invest is crucial. There is sadly no universal pitching template that guarantees an investment. However, all good pitches share some common elements and characteristics.

During this HON members breakfast, Kajsa Gatenbeck will share her thoughts and lessons of a good pitch, what needs to be included and what you should know before stepping into that meeting. Our aim is that these learnings will help you create that pitch investors can’t turn down!

Book Release “Till Dikten” by Malte Persson

Mycket talar emot dikten.
Till exempel saknar den häftiga specialeffekter.
Såsom stora bollar av eld…

Och ändå, ett sprakande fyrverkeri. Dante som actiondocka. Dikten reas ut på Dressmann. En dikt med vuxen limesmak (bokstavligt). Två och en halv stjärnor till dikten på en hemsida för förlorare.

Dikten är en cykel, en nyckelpigeinvasion, en zombieapokalyps. Med nya strängar på sin lyra försöker Malte Persson rädda den från sig själv.

Book release party celebrating Malte Persson´s latest poetry collection “Till dikten”.

Book Launch! Den vilda jakten på ett bättre jag

Twelve months, twelve aspects of life to be optimized. Carl Cederström and André Spicer went all in and wrote a book about it.

Welcome to a launch party on January 16th as publishing house Nature & Kultur hosts a presentation of the book, moderated by Lawen Mohtadi, Senior Editor at Natur & Kultur.

Better looking, smarter, more productive, a better lover and healthier. There is no part of life that cannot be optimized.

For a year, researchers Carl Cederström and André Spicer aimed to methodically improve different parts of their lives. In January they increased their productivity, in June they maximized their sexual pleasure and in September they tried to become millionaires. Soon, the experiment turned into a way of life, devoting large amounts of time and money in the pursuit to become optimal versions of themselves.

Den vilda jakten på ett bättre jag is an entertaining and revealing book about self-help and what it does to us. By the end of the year, the authors are compelled to ask: what was the point of all this?

Carl Cederström is an Associate Professor in business administration at Stockholm University and author or editor of five books. He has written for The New York Times, The Guardian, The Atlantic and Svenska Dagbladet. André Spicer is a professor at Cass Business School, London, and author and editor of seven books. He has written for The Guardian, the Financial Times, The Times, and CNN. Spicer lives in London. Together they have previously written The Wellness Syndrome.

The book is also published in English with the title Desperately Seeking Self-Improvement: A Year Inside the Optimization Movement. Read a review in The Guardian

LAST Pop-Up Shop

Alma Shop proudly presents LAST first pop-up outside of the studio. Beautiful handcrafted objects by Asa Jungnelius, Gustaf Nordenskiöld and Fredrik Paulsen. Opening reception 6 December, 17-20, Welcome!

LAST
(Swedish: freight, burden, vice)

As long as there is water* to drink, there will be cups to drink from. But the variation in form these cups can take is virtually limitless. In today’s globalized world, how can we produce products of flesh and blood? Products made with care, that are built to be used for a long time? Can artists and designers circumvent the corporate hierarchy of mass production and instead manufacture objects themselves?

The LAST line is comprised of customized, one-of-a-kind pieces that collectively suggest integrity and the ability to last a long time.

Not only are the products sustainable, but they work together to promote design that is slower, more personal, and more thoughtful. A LAST that will last.

The concept behind LAST is simple: purchase an object directly from its maker. No intermediaries, long journeys, questionable materials or sweatshop labour. All of the products in the LAST collection are handmade by the artist in his or her studio.

LAST is a pop-up experience, a shop that can appear anywhere, be it an interior design shop, a gallery, online, or outdoors. It’s a traveling design experience: while the shop’s essential structure remains the same no matter where it pops up, each iteration includes a unique design element to give it a distinct identity.

Joe Macleod on Ends

As consumers and providers we overlook the importance of healthy, coherent endings. There was once a rich culture of reflection and responsibility, but over recent centuries this has been lost. Producing a mixture of long term societal oversight, and short term denial. 

Now, in a world awash with start-ups and new tech, I want to tell you why its critical we start considering endings. 

Joe Macleod, author of the Ends, shares with us a history of our changing relationship with endings. He makes a compelling case that demonstrates how, over centuries, our changing relationship with death, spread of the Protestant religion, and a tethering of our identities to our consumption has distanced our relationship with endings.
