City with style.

City with style.

Lea Lange sits on the terrace of the FluxBau, a place that epitomises Berlin’s diversity. Here, you don’t only enjoy good food, but also take in concerts and readings or simply enjoy the view in a relaxed atmosphere. Above the Spree, which flows particularly wide at this point, the silhouette of the Alexanderplatz television tower can be seen in the distance against a background of the blue sky. The German capital’s distinctive landmark. Driving through the Kreuzberg district in the new A-Class Saloon, it keeps popping into the picture. “Berlin inspires me anew every day,” says Lange. The city is the perfect home for the 31-year-old’s company, Juniqe, and not least because the flourishing start-up scene in Berlin attracts talent from all over the world. “Our 90 employees come from 26 countries. You’ll only find this kind of international diversity here.” Lange started Juniqe in 2014, at the age of 26, with her friends Marc Pohl and Sebastian Hasebrink. The idea for the business grew from a personal need: as a design enthusiast, Lange was constantly on the lookout for beautiful individual pieces for her home.
