Modulor can be easily described as a piece of heaven for designers, architects and fans of DIY. All of this because Modulor offers more than 30.000 creative products in a space that is way more than a regular crafts shop. Modulor can be considered a pilgrimage place for designers alike in Berlin. And it sure is.
I first heard about Modulor by accident. I still remember the day I was at Betahaus and heard some people talking about a place to buy calligraphy supplies. This was way back in 2012 and, since I had only moved to Berlin, I was kind of lost in the city. Back in São Paulo, I knew where to buy the design materials I wanted but here in Berlin, I had no clue.
From that talk I overheard at Betahaus, I managed to google Modulor and, with a big surprise, I realized that the place I was looking for was really close by. There I went and I kept going back there, almost on a monthly base.
Founded by Christoph Struhk more than 25 years ago as a small specialist shop for architectural model building, it easily became the best shop supplies for any craft project you might have. Today, Modulor has more than a hundred people at work and the offer a lot more than material for architectural model building. Where else can you find sheet plastic, sand metal sheets, calligraphy supplies and design books in the same place? Only at Modulor!
It was only in 2011 that a corner of Moritzplatz was dominated by the huge 3000 m² of Modulor. An unique concept store that makes me happy every time that I have the pleasure of visiting it. And I know that you will be as happy as me when you visit this piece of design heaven in Kreuzberg.
