Are you good at making things? Are you a handyman?
Ofri is coming from a do-it-yourself family. Her parents built their house all by them selfs so she can pretty much do anything. kd on the other hand…..

What’s your favorite piece of furniture at home?
Ofri – a couch we got from a good friend, it used to be blue but now it’s bright gray .
kd – an “Ikea” table I’ve bought for my home studio when I just came to Berlin. It’s really great how much crap can be piled up on it before you have to clean it….
Tell us about your latest unnecessary purchase.
A Theremin. We were sure we’ll use it on stage but for now it doesn’t look like it at all.
So, what’s definitely still missing within your walls?
A good stereo system….
What question have you always wanted to be asked? How would you answer it?
