A furniture store with history
From the administration building to the heart of the design district: Kantstrasse in Berlin-Charlottenburg is one of the city’s major historic boulevards – and also a particularly impressive one, because at more than 2,600 meters Kantstrasse is one of the longest streets in Berlin.

The street at our address has borne the name of the philosopher Immanuel Kant since 1887 – and since the turn of the millennium it has also been increasingly nicknamed the “Design District”. The home of LIVING BERLIN was completed in 1999 – the five-story office building succeeded the previous Dresdener Bank administration building, which had dominated Kantstrasse for many decades – designed by the architects Nowotny Mähner & Associated (Berlin) and Studio & Partners ( Milan). Since then, the impressive façade, which reflects the sky during the day and the streetlights in Berlin at night, has remained unchanged - and since 1999, interior design of the highest quality and in many styles has been presented here throughout.

With the opening, the approximately 40 tenants with monobrand showrooms or Polibrand Stores of national and international interior design brands have continued to occupy Kantstr. 17 the first address for furniture in Berlin and beyond. Because the high quality of the collections and the consulting services on all aspects of furnishing planning, be it for private individuals or for property development projects, the area along Kantstraße around Savignyplatz has been continuously upgraded and new interior design houses, kitchen studios, interior design offices etc. have settled here around this point of contact for design connoisseurs. Thus, our house founded the design district of Berlin, which meanwhile - starting from the Kantstr. 17 - extends in a star shape to Savignyplatz and the Memorial Church and, above all, into the many side streets of the quarter. Since May 2021, the house has been called LIVING BERLIN - a statement for the roots in Berlin and in the life of all Berliners, whether born here or newly moved. And also a statement on the furnishing tradition of our house with all its stores, which still plays a leading role in shaping the lively interior design scene in Berlin today.
