MY SIGNATURE

    Chris Glass is the founder, CEO and creative brains behind aptm in Berlin (i.e. “apartment”). This American’s passion project is a gallery, concept store, exhibition space and event location all in one. 

    It is his SIGNATURE.

    Before he lived out his passion, Glass studied musical theatre in Boston. Later he worked in New York – first as a performer in shows, then as a restaurant manager and later in a spa. When he started working for a German beauty start-up in 2000, he found himself coming to Germany as a result. Here he realised his dream and bought a 230 sqm factory floor, which he is constantly restaging. There he can be interior designer, collector, host and globetrotter. His whole personality, brought together in one place. He says he has enough ideas in his head to design twenty different apartments right off the bat. The spaces that Chris designs today have an aura that you can’t escape. 

    You also feel this aura when you talk with Chris. He chooses his own styles with the same passion with which he designs spaces.

    THE APTM. A PLACE TO MEET.

    THE APTM. A PLACE TO MEET.

    "A well-travelled friend with superb taste gives you the keys to their beautifully appointed place and says make yourself at home!” The 230 sqm factory floor can be hired for events, shootings, dinner parties or private get-togethers. Depending on the season, the location is remodelled by Glass himself and is as changeable as the founder himself. 

    In addition, everything that is on display in the aptm can also be purchased there. This retail concept allows anyone to create their own aptm within their own four walls. The items that can be found there are unique, personal and truly special. So personal that you expect to be surprised at any moment by someone with a bathrobe, slippers and a newspaper in their hand.

    Not for nothing is this aptm described as a “living gallery”.
