Welcome to Baum-kuchen!

Baum-kuchen is a wife and husband team that is a part studio, part shop and part lifestyle! We are passionate about living life and excited to share with you everything extraordinary that inspires everyday lifestyles. (little more about Wakako & Frido

The approach to Baum-kuchen lifestyle comes from our unique background of German Bauhaus and Japanese wabi-sabi marrying together harmoniously. Products we create and curate at our studio are aesthetically beautiful, emotionally and physically durable... and very very functional.

We are interested in exploring topics like  "Journey as the destination", "capturing the moment", "love for analogue" and "culture of making" and are constantly evolving and looking for inspiration from Japan (where I grew up), Germany (where Frido is from) and everywhere in between (especially in Los Angeles where we currently live). We have a brick and mortar studio / shop in the heart of Glassell Park (just north of Los Angeles downtown) where we showcase some of our products, share our passion through lectures and work shops and host unique events. 

We also love staying in touch with our virtual community via Facebook page, Instagram feed and are constantly sharing our adventure through our Baum-kuchen blog!

Our hope is to continuously bring you creativity, imagination, and inspiration.

It’s our life. Let’s make it beautiful:)

everything happens for a reason

 

p.s.  "Baum-kuchen" is a name of delicious German cake which has become quite popular in Japan. It looks like a tree stump and to us... it represents layers of happiness that have been built with time aging beautifully.
