About LeKosmosBerlin

On Etsy since 2013

My world

I love to be surrounded by things that have a history. It might be a personal memory or a certain feeling of connection that attracts me.

Vintage is my passion and I rarely buy new if I can get a special item that is a little démodé or that has a certain knack to it. I would for instance never replace the 60s rose tray – you probably know these trays with a white plastic band wrapped around the rim – I inherited from my Grandmother by a new one. Maybe I might add an extra 60s teak version or...

I created my own Kosmos, my „Le Kosmos Berlin“, in the city centre of Berlin. Le Kosmos Berlin is my baby and was a heartfelt wish that came true. I try to fill this world with items I care for. The past has given them a soul.
It's a story of collecting and letting go. One day I ship a grass green Fat Lava Vase to Florida and replace it by a Panton style orange Krups kitchen scale I just found – hidden between a mountain of junk – on the flea market. The next day it is polished and put on the table, ready for the shooting.

The products I chose for my shop often have a certain je ne sais quoi. I love to make them shine again and put them in another context. Mostly I prefer products with a rather clear design, but I might just as well go for the kitsch corn jug that looks even prettier when assembled with pure white porcelain. And for me they all gather for a special Le Kosmos Berlin style.

    I grew up in Nothern Germany, went to Paris for my studies, have my home base in Berlin since 1997 from where I traveled to France and Poland and – always – to the flea markets nearby. In 2013 I started my shop Le Kosmos Berlin. The most exciting journey until now.

Shop policies

Welcome!

Le Kosmos Berlin offers vintage finds, treasures and unique - sometimes quirky - discoveries from Berlin or wherever else I hunt for vintage.

If you are dreaming of a special item that you cannot find, I might be able to help. Just tell me about your secret love.


I take special care of only choosing vintage goods that are in perfect shape and flawless. Slight patina, like tarnished silver or yellowed plastic, is typical for vintage products and also makes the charm of the over 20 year old products I offer.

If there is more wear to a piece, I often choose it because I admire the shape and look of the vintage treasure I found. But these faulty details are always described and shown in the pictures of the product. Please read the description carefully.

Also, please take a close look at measurements to avoid surprises - when the vase might be just half the size you expected.

The products a stored in a pet free and non-smoking environment.

I love to share my passion for vintage finds and I'm always happy to see pictures of Le Kosmos Berlin products in their new home.

In case your expectations and the product you bought at Le Kosmos Berlin don't match, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm sure that we will find a solution or a way to return it.
I will respond in 24 hours.

Viele Grüße from Berlin and enjoy the hunt!
