Our Pop-up Store in Berlin: A Sonorous Experience
From June 3rd to 10th, we at Hess Sound had the exciting opportunity to open our first pop-up store in Berlin. Auguststraße in Berlin Mitte became a place of sounds and encounters for one week. People from all over Berlin as well as from the direct neighborhood had the opportunity to drop by and get to know our fascinating Peter Hess® Singing Bowls.
This project was a unique endeavor for our team. We worked hard to create a welcoming and inspiring atmosphere in which visitors could explore the world of singing bowls. We were very pleased that both sound enthusiasts who were already familiar with our products, and people who were encountering singing bowls for the first time found their way to us.
Great interest in sound workshops
In the pop-up store, visitors had the opportunity to try out our singing bowls and learn the differences between them. It was wonderful to see how they were enchanted by the gentle vibrations and soothing sounds of the singing bowls. Our evening sound workshops also met with great interest and the participants were able to experience how variously singing bowls can be used in different contexts. At this point we would like to express our special thanks to the Peter Hess® Institute Regional Group Berlin/Brandenburg who supported us during the workshops.
While Hess Sound owner Jana Hess presented Sound Elements in Beauty and Wellness, Barbara Senf showed how to use singing bowls very practically in everyday life. Janina Picard gave an exciting Breath & Sound workshop in English. Eva-Maria Hähnel and Anita Böttcher demonstrated how beginners can get started with sound. Ramona Bannert covered the topic of Fantasy Journeys with Sound, and Janine Gabelmann introduced the world of Sound Yoga. Last but not least, Norbert Kasprowski demonstrated how to use singing bowls in self-care.
“This week was a special experience for me and our team,” says Jana Hess. “It was great to get in touch with Berliners and hear what their experiences with singing bowls have been so far. We learned a lot from it and are already looking forward to our next pop-up store!”
Sound at the INNOCOS Berlin
Parallel to our pop-up store, the INNOCOS Berlin transpired. Hess Sound gave a workshop on sound yoga there under the direction of Janine Gabelmann which was met with a great response. The beauty fair provided an additional platform to share the fascination and enthusiasm that people feel regarding singing bowls and the use of sound.
Looking forward to more pop-up stores!
Overall, our pop-up store in Berlin was a complete success. We are grateful for the opportunity to reach so many people with our singing bowls. The encounters and conversations have inspired and encouraged us to continue offering high-quality sound instruments and to carry the positive effect of sound into the world.
We would like to thank all visitors, supporters, and participants. Without you this experience would not have been possible. Let’s bring sound into our lives together and look forward to future pop-up stores and inspiring encounters!
