Konditorei gloriously announces the opening of its first location in Beijing!

A cake shop with only one type of cakes – but where each cake is unique. A confectioner that took an overdose of sugar and has become deaf to customers' complaints. A semi-abandoned attempt at decorating the space in the style of the art zone surrounding it. Remains of an improbable cooking process that were made into trinkets.
Beijing Konditorei creates the perfect mood for short and precise dates, while using the imprecise texture of jelly in order to create confusion between looks and taste. Surrounded by an abundance of textures, colors, art and handicraft,  Konditorei uses the minimum of ingredients in order to offer a clear punctual experience.

The Great Romania – China Friendship Cafeteria started in Beijing in 2018 and is headed for a bright future governed by solidarity. More than an annual inter-continental exchange of exhibitions, the long-term project is nourished with care for each other's vulnerability.

sandwich started off by using the hidden potential of a residual space with the proportion of 1.5 by 8 meters, found in-between two utilitarian buildings, and is slowly but constantly expanding. Strongly believing that any restraint is a resource for finding the ultimate solution, sandwich converts the characteristics of the chosen space into constructive limits. Sandwich works as an art space since 2016.
