Located on a Berlin street that borders Helmholtz Platz in bustling Prenzlauer, Supalife is a store, gallery, and design firm that opened its doors just under a year ago. Featuring an array of original silkscreened prints, tees, cards, books, and other objects, "everything from 2-D to 3-D," as co-owner and founder Jens Krisinger explains, the space is a platform for mostly handmade and limited edition objects and includes about 40 different Berlin-based young designers. Standouts include "Blackbook," (pictured, above right) a handbound tome of one-off artworks by 35-member street artist collective CBS, "Instant Labelling" packing tape, and the collage printed journals (images of last two after the jump).

Rotating monthly exhibitions, like puppet shows, Californian artist Mateo's prints, and, currently, works on paper by Ecuadorian artist Tomala, are holdovers from the talks and workshops held there since 1999 by the affiliated media lab File Sharing.
