WELCOME Dear Reader, now-covered, wintry landscapes, panoramic views and tranquility – more and more people are looking for relaxation in the mountains. No wonder acquiring a chalet has become part of a strong, worldwide trend, even though the history of this rural type of dwelling began rather unassumingly. The word chalet originated in francophone Switzerland. In the beginning, the mountain huts were used as shelters for shepherds. It was only in the 19th century that the middle classes and the European aristocracy developed an interest in the traditional wooden houses. The era’s emerging tourist trade helped spread the idea of the chalet as a vacation home throughout Europe’s alpine region and overseas. The majority of buyers are looking for chalets as second homes and as a stable investment. In the European Alps, Gstaad, St. Moritz and Kitzbühel are among the most popular destinations. In St. Moritz, it is particularly chalets built in the Engadiner style that are much sought after. When marketing top properties on the Suvretta hillside that tick all the boxes, from their micro-location to their furnishings and fittings, we can, in some cases, achieve sales prices of up to 64 million euros. Gstaad, with its chalet-style buildings, has been experiencing great demand in the luxury segment. Buyers are willing to pay top prices of up to 46 million euros for exceptional properties. In top locations on Kitzbühel’s Sonnberg hill, high-quality country houses built in the Tyrolean style can fetch up to roughly 40 million euros. Outside of Europe, many sophisticated winter homes are located in the USA. The winter sports resorts of Aspen and Vail, which are picturesquely located in the Rocky Mountains, are well known for their breathtaking natural beauty. Property prices in top locations in Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt and Carbondale are in the double-digit million-euro range. As a child, I myself spent a lot of time with my parents at a venerable European ski resort. When I am not vacationing on my favorite island of Mallorca, I like going on winter skiing trips to the mountains with my family. In my opinion, chalets add particular appeal to a winter sports resort. Sincerely

WELCOME

That certain desire … Do you know that feeling? Maybe it’s the time of year. Maybe it’s the result of the super-busy holiday season. While wrapping gifts at home, crossing things off your never-ending list or trying to stop the walls of your freshly baked gingerbread house from slipping away because the icing won’t stick – in those moments my thoughts easily stray to wild fantasies about dropping everything and embarking on an exotic trip. Inspired by that “great escape” feeling we went to look for exciting getaways, the most fascinating destinations and spectacular hotels. How about a safari in Namibia? Or a skiing trip to Japan? Or paying a visit to Clint Eastwood’s ranch? Just like other famous personalities, the American actor has turned his passion into a sideline as a hotelier. No matter whether you spend the holidays cozily tucked away with your family like Celerie Kemble, whom we feature on the cover, or escape the seasonal craziness for an exotic, faraway destination, we wish you very Happy Holidays, a great New Year – and hope that with our new issue, we can PHOTOS: CHRISTIAN SCHOPPE (1), © 2007–2016 ONE&ONLY (1), YOBAB/FOTOLIA.COM (1)

PLAYGROUND INTERVIEW

Designs with Character Hartmut Roehrig became CEO of Austrian furniture maker Wittmann Möbelwerkstätten in December 2015. The Frenchman is committed to the company’s traditional craftsmanship and timeless designs. Mr. Roehrig, Wittmann was founded in 1896 as a saddlery. What in-

At trade fairs you currently see many re-editions of iconic designs,

fluence does this heritage have on the company today? Wittmann is

vintage items that are being produced in large numbers for the first

one of the very few real furniture manufacturers that still master the traditional methods of the craft. Each of our unique pieces of furniture is personally signed by the upholsterer. So naturally, attention to detail and the love for the materials and craftsmanship are evident throughout the company culture – and in every single product we make.

Quality, craftsmanship, sustainability and durability are key concepts in furniture design today. How do you approach them? To us, they form a virtuous circle: you

can only achieve sustainability if the products are really durable. We develop and produce pieces of furniture that not only maintain their high quality for a very long time, but are also designed to be timeless. We often receive orders to reupholster furniture that has been in use for 20, 30 or even 40 years. The clients just don’t see any need for a change. Wittmann produces classics by Josef Hoffmann and Friedrich Kiesler, as well as contemporary pieces by Jean Nouvel and Jaime Hayon, among others. What criteria do you apply when

At Wittmann, we give designers a hard time, precisely because our priority is creating timeless designs that will remain relevant, but without forgoing creativity or an element of suspense. A real Wittmann always has to be special – familiar, but at the same time, intriguing.

What, to you, constitutes a truly well-designed object? It is quite simple, actually: it’s the first few sec-

onds that count. A piece of furniture has to be appealing and immediately pleasing on an aesthetic level. It has to win over the observer with its proportions, details and materials, as well as having a distinct character and charm. The next question is: can I still envisage this piece of furniture being in my apartment in the next two, five or ten years? Finally, you have to try it out. This, too, only requires a few seconds. It is only with beds that you have to take your time. We always recommend testing a bed for at least 20 minutes before deciding to buy it.

INTERVIEW: UTA ABENDROTH; PHOTOS: © HAEUSLER (1)

choosing a new designer?

It’s a bit of both. After all, Wittmann’s product range contains some of the most classic designs in furniture history. Of course, we are delighted that our designs now receive even more attention than before. On the other hand, just too many designs are being hailed as iconic. Customers sometimes wonder, and with very good reason, whether it is actually possible for everything that was produced in the past to be that great and significantly influential. We agree with Gustav Mahler: “Tradition does not mean worshipping the ashes, but passing on the fire.” a blessing for a company like Wittmann?

CELERIE KEMBLE CELEBRITY HOTELS A SAFARI IN AFRICA 90 YEARS OF PAN AM SKIING IN JAPAN

Celerie Kemble’s daughter Zinnia learned about color accents early on. And what you can make out of twigs and branches.

Celerie Kemble’s interiors are never impersonal or cold. They are for living in with gusto – much to the delight of her three children.

The Ladies of the House One of Manhattan’s most sought-after interior designers, Celerie Kemble combines imperfections. She learned this art of effortless interior design from her mother Mimi McMakin. Together, the two have created distinctive spaces that magically attract friends and family, year after year.

SIR RICHARD BRANSON NECKER ISLAND

PHOTO: BRYAN ADAMS/TRUNK ARCHIVE

This private Caribbean island in the British Virgin Islands belongs to the adventurous British entrepreneur. Nelson Mandela, Steven Spielberg and Kate Moss have all thrown parties in its Polynesian-inspired ambience – well away from prying eyes. Renting the island costs $78,000 a night.


Hosts with the Most

You might not find them behind the reception desk, but more and more celebrities like actor Clint Eastwood or director Francis Ford Coppola are enjoying a second career in the hospitality industry. Maybe because they know best what is essential when traveling. Entrepreneur Richard Branson turned an entire island into a exotic resort, while Robert De TEXT: Susanne Kaloff Niro owns a luxury hotel in Manhattan.

CLINT EASTWOOD MISSION RANCH HOTEL When you drive down the California coast towards San Francisco, you can hear the sea lions barking on the beach. The actor’s ranch is located nearby in the small town of Carmel. The 31-room hotel features a cozy atmosphere complete with fireplaces, jacuzzis and a hayloft.

FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA THE FAMILY COPPOLA RESORTS The director owns several family resorts. One of them, the Blancaneaux Lodge, is located in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve in Belize. Supposedly, the jungle reminded him of the film Apocalypse Now. Today, it is more a case of Paradise Now. Guests stay in luxury cabañas in between waterfalls, taking it easy without a Corleone family member anywhere in sight.

They all are outstanding hosts who have a keen sense of what is important in life: contemplating the sublime, the beautiful and the extraordinary. These wonderful places may take the form of a private island (Necker Island) where you are safe from the cameras of the paparazzi, or an Oscar-worthy view across Manhattan (The Greenwich Hotel). And sometimes a 1950s-style ambience (Lazy Meadow) or a hayloft (Mission Ranch Hotel) are worth more than five stars.

Sand in Sight A safari in southern Africa is enchanting, even for seasoned travelers. Journeying through the bush with heightened senses, you encounter lions, giraffes, kudus and rhinos. You stand speechless in front of gigantic waterfalls or sand dunes almost as tall as the Empire State Building. At night, desert camps and luxurious lodges await. TEXT: Ulf Lippitz PHOTOS: Afrikarma

alert, their heads with the black-andwhite face markings raised, their V-shaped antlers protruding from their skulls. The oryx antelope features on Namibia’s coat of arms. It is a majestic creature that can survive in the driest deserts, because it can go for days, even weeks, without water. On the way to the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, you can catch your first glimpse of these animals. Some are on their own, some in groups, like the females with their calves. Ostriches are also in evidence, the color of their feathers as ashen as the ground in the afternoon. Every three months or so, a leopard can be spotted loitering in the area, say the guides. It, too, is very difficult to discern on the rocky ground around the lodge. To many Europeans vacationing in southern Africa, a safari means a journey into the exotic, the unknown, while to many locals it just means taking a trip. This is, after all, the literal meaning of the Swahili word. A safari is the experience you have on the way from one place to another. If you spot wild animals – great. If not, don’t worry. Animals aren’t the sole reason for visiting Namibia. Rather, it is wanting to experience the unique combination of primeval landscape and Nature’s savage vastness. It is hot all year round. Rain is very scarce, meaning that many regions are almost devoid of human beings. The mountains rise dramatically, but also seem to yield to the gigantic sand dunes, which in turn ebb away smoothly into the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Observing this spectacle in Namibia is like watching the birth of the planet, every day. It takes time for your eyes to adjust to the vastSANDIBE CAMP – hippos grunt in the ness. At first glance it water, African fish eagles circle overhead seems hostile to life – and and sometimes lions block the way. at second glance you realize how good it is for the soul. Those who have scrambled up the 325-meter Big Daddy dune will never forget the incomparable feeling of looking from the ridge into the sandy infinity and onto the undulating emptiness that seems to expand into the distance. Taking a balloon trip along the edge of the dunes towards the sunrise in the early morning will teach you to put down your camera and simply enjoy the fiery red spectacle.

lies the Serra Cafema Camp. Here near the border with Angola, the barren Martian-like landscape is equally impressive. There are sand dunes, rocky deserts and canyons in which the Himba tribe have lived for centuries. They erect their huts in circular settlements and cover their bodies with a reddish paste made of pulverized iron oxide, butterfat, herbs and the resin of the omuzumba shrub. They breed animals and engage in small-scale subsistence agriculture. On the banks of the Kunene River, where the camp is located, defiant vegetation is growing in the middle of the arid surroundings. A few crocodiles live here, but they are not as large as elsewhere on the continent, where there is an ample supply of prey. Cautious springboks, and a couple of oryxes, graze on the few shrubs. In the evening the light is reflected by the smooth waters of the river and the Himba sing songs in their language, which features lots of still,

clicks. The wilderness answers only with complete silence. For visitors, this takes some getting used to. Our subsequent arrival at Etosha National Park couldn’t be more different. There are jeeps and minivans full of people everywhere, and around them, countless animals. Thousands of guests visit the enclosed, 22,000-square kilometer park each year. Permanent roads lead through the terrain and at night the barriers are lowered. Outside the gates, in the Little Ongava Camp, people relax and enjoy their gin & tonics. Sometimes lions visit the nearby water hole, but the entire scene is clearly more touristy. At the heart of Etosha lies a gigantic saltpan, which dries up totally for months but then, during the rainy season, can sometimes fill all the way up. The park is as uncompromisingly flat as a tabletop. It seems as though the colors hide away from the sunshine in the daytime, and only come out to paint the landscape in elegant hues at sundown. You can see countless animals here: zebras, giraffes, kudus and springboks. Sometimes a rhino jostles in among them, or a herd of elephants marches by majestically. two-hour flight from Namibia’s capital Windhoek takes you across the border to Botswana. The Okavango Delta boasts an abundance of all the things that are lacking in Namibia. Instead of earth-colored vegetation and trickling rivulets, there is lush greenery at overflowing watercourses. While in Namibia the eye can explore the distance, here one’s senses are heightened and focused on nearby features. Behind any shrub, there may be animals waiting: a pack of wild dogs over there, a herd of antelopes here, a somnolent leopard dozing in a tree or hippos grunting in the water. African fish eagles circle above the delta uttering their distinctive cries. And occasionally, you may find a pride of lions blocking your way into Sandibe Camp. The camp itself is built on wooden pillars and is made of lots of curved beams and thick guy-ropes – luxury in the middle of the African wilderness. There are no fences, instead the guides take each guest to their respective bungalows. In the evening, the chef lights a campfire, barbecues meat and prepares salads. That’s when an elephant drops by, eager to understand what’s going on. It rubs itself on its favorite tree and causes havoc among the bowls and saucepans. After 45 minutes, its curiosity satisfied, it walks off. The elephant meant no harm – it was more of a social call. Under Africa’s vast skies, it is customary to share. We travel to the final destination on our tour: Victoria Falls. Fed by the waters of the Zambezi River, the falls are located on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border and are among the continent’s most impressive natural spectacles. Even the giants in the nearby Elephant Camp cannot compete with the roaring force of the waters. The guided tours along the falls are especially worthwhile as they allow you to experience the power of the elements – foaming, thundering spray – more directly than the view from a helicopter would. You can literally feel the cool splashes land on your face. It is the perfect way to remember the wonders of southern Africa!

When glamorous wanderlust had a name There was a time when flying was an adventure you dressed up for. When air travel was sexy and glamorous. And the airline of choice was: PAN AM. This year the legendary American carrier would have celebrated its 90th birthday. Berlin-based Callisto Publishers commemorates this anniversary with a magnificent, large-format illustrated book.

Icy winds from Siberia and humidity from the Pacific Ocean produce the finest powder snow on earth. This, combined with steep, craggy slopes of volcanic soil make Japan a paradise for skiers and snowboarders.

end. As a junior employee in one of Tokyo’s office towers, he is fighting to get ahead. But if he finishes his work quickly and his boss does not thwart his plans, he can catch the highspeed Tohoku-Shinkansen train from Tokyo Station on a Friday night and travel to Nasushiobara, 150 kilometers north of the capital, where a shuttle bus takes him to his hotel in roughly an hour. Sleep overpowers him as soon as he arrives, but when he wakes up the next morning, he looks out to see the sun rising above the wintry landscape of the Hunter Mountain Resort. It is the start of a mini-vacation, a two-day escape from everyday life that he spends hurtling down a steep slope on a snowboard and feeling the exhilarating headwinds. Takae-san approaches the short line at the ski lift with serenity. For a person who commutes in the 37-million strong metropolis every day – between the crowded dwellings of the Kamata neighborhood and the glass skyscrapers of Shinjuku – the ski resort located at over 1,600 meters is the perfect sanctuary. There is a carefully designed selection of runs – from family-friendly to seriously ambitious – half-pipes with great music playing and boldly laid-out mogul slopes. At night, visitors can choose from a selection of established and well-run restaurants and nightclubs. “Gaijin” – those of us who are unable to read or speak Japanese – will find signposts and menu suggestions in English. Fans of Japanese tradition can book a stay in a ryoka inn and enjoy an evening at an onsen or hot spring, of which there are many in Japan. At night, instead of using a bed, you can unroll your futon on a tatami mat and sleep in the traditional Japanese style. On his independent “Snow Japan” Internet platform, Kenichi Nakajo collects ratings and information on Japan’s ski resorts, from the northern island of Hokkaido to Aomori, Niigata and Nagano, and down to the Kenritsu Mominoki Forest Park in Hiroshima prefecture. He explains the three major differences between Japanese ski resorts and those in the Alps or in the Rocky Mountains. First, there is the length of stay. “Most guests only come here for one or two days of skiing.” So there is no time for folksy chalet activities, everything has to dovetail precisely: streamlined ski classes, reliable childcare, meticulous customer service and guaranteed fun. Even the alternative to stressful everyday life is run on a tight schedule in Japan. Cross-country skiing connoisseurs can also go ski touring


HOKKAIDO Even experienced skiers are in for a challenge on the northern island. Some runs end on the beach, beyond which lies Siberia.

but snowboarding and downhill skiing are just… well, more awesome. Consequently, vacationers here tend to be young. The second difference is that there are more than 600 ski resorts in Japan, all the way down to the south of the island nation to Saga prefecture on Kyushu Island and Ehime on Shikoku Island. These are located roughly on the same latitude as Baghdad or Casablanca, but have guaranteed snow. Nakajo-san dryly describes the topography of his home country thus: “In Japan there is no shortage of mountains.” Nowhere in Japan do people live very far from a ski resort where a network of ski lifts transports them to one of the countless steep slopes in the rugged, volcanic landscape. Or, to one of the less challenging nursery slopes at the foot of the mountains.

uring the economic boom there were

but when the economy stalled, many operators were forced to close down. The arrival of snowboarding changed everything. Why? Because the third and most important difference between Western and Japanese resorts is the bone-dry powder snow that is reliably and generously dispersed across the mountains. Hokkaido Island is a genuine paradise for powder hounds. Hokkaido comprises the region around Sapporo, which hosted the Olympic winter games in 1972, the ski resort of Niseko United with its 29 lifts and 55 kilometers of ski runs, and Yoichi and Otaru on the east coast, where cold air flows in from Siberia, bringing with it humidity from the ocean. Nagano on the main island of Honshu hosted the 1998 games. Connoisseurs consider Nozawa Onsen, situated 46 kilometers north of the city, to be among one of the best ski resorts in the world. Visitors have long come from further afield than Japan: China, the Pacific region, Europe and the U.S. Those who would like to indulge in a particular treat have themselves pulled up into the unspoiled, white silence by a caterpillar tractor or a helicopter. Face downhill, breathe in deeply and off you go on the run of a lifetime! Satoshi Takae, the young man from Tokyo, has been exerting himself on the slopes all day. He has ridden to the top and sped downhill as many times as his ski pass would allow him. Now, surrounded by glittering frost, he floats in the comfortable hot waters of an onsen and looks up into the clear, starry night skies. For a few seconds, he holds his breath. That is what eternity must feel like. On Monday, he will be back, forging ahead on his career path, but the hustle and bustle of the big city will not cause him undue stress. At home, in his tiny apartment, his snowboard hangs on the wall like a trophy. The season has only just begun, and in Japan, happily, the mountains are never far away.

very summer, the Engel & Völkers Polo Cup in Mallorca is one of the big events on the island’s social calendar. This is when Christian Völkers invites guests to his finca “Son Coll” on Mallorca’s southwest coast. For three days, polo matches, agile ponies, stimulating conversation and great food all take center stage. This August the tournament took place on a smaller scale, fostering a distinctly relaxed atmosphere. On the polo field, six teams of three competed against each other. Among the players from Argentina, Columbia, Spain, Britain and Germany were polo stars such as Santos Anca, Gastón Maiquez and Bautista Bayugar. Host Christian Völkers himself took to the saddle on all three match days. In the final, the Engel & Völkers team was victorious – thanks to 12-year-old Felipe Odia, one of the biggest up-and-coming polo talents in Germany, who scored the winning goal.

20th Century Travel

Jim Heimann, Allison Silver, Taschen, approx. € 30

This 392-page volume celebrates 100 years of American wanderlust. Cars, planes and motels changed the way we explore the world. And every decade, the process of traveling became faster – and more comfortable. Four hundred travel ads illustrate the nostalgic story of globetrotting, and take the reader on an exciting journey through time and the cultural and technological development of the country. Hello, jet setters!

Nomad Deluxe Herbert Ypma, Assouline, $ 85

Travel writer Herbert Ypma knows how to awaken a longing for far-off places. This is hardly surprising, because according to Ypma we were all nomads once upon a time. Nomad Deluxe presents the most beautiful locations for perusal: from the Siwa Oasis in Egypt to the Adirondack Mountains, from the craters in the Atacama Desert to the Aeolian Islands. The book also features great tips for modern nomads, like a Berber guide through the Atlas Mountains.

Wanderlust

Michael Clinton, Glitterati, approx. $ 30

Traveling became a means to find himself. A diary in prose and images.

Laure Vernière, Anne Garde, Assouline, approx. $ 85 STRING DESIGN The “Bloom” bookcase was inspired by weaving looms and is a stroke of genius by design duo Raw Edges. Price on request.

Rajasthan is magnificent, colorful and peculiar. This illustrated book takes the reader through India’s biggest state. The collection of stories and images showcases a vibrant universe in which people and palaces seem intent on outshining each other. As Vernière says: “In Rajasthan you come across marvel after marvel. You are bowled over by beauty in all its forms – real or imagined – and by magic everywhere.” Readers are in for a real surprise.

An engine allows the three residential cubes of “Sharifi-ha House” in Teheran to be turned by 90 degrees and project outward.

D

epending on the mood of the owner, or the time of year or temperature, “Sharifi-ha House” in Teheran can appear open or fairly closed. The four-story building features three timber-clad cubes, each of which can be turned independently and by 90 degrees, making them project out from the façade. When the flexible rooms on floors two, three and four (a breakfast room, a guest bedroom and an office) have reached their final position, they jut out from the frontage by roughly three meters. Each cube enlarges the living space by about 20 square meters. So it is not only the outward appearance of the building that changes, but the character of its interior, too. This extraordinary, spacious and technically sophisticated family home was designed by Alireza Taghaboni (on the left), who founded his architectural firm Nextoffice in the Iranian capital in 2010. For his design he took inspiration from traditional Iranian manor houses, which – due to climatic conditions in the region – often featured two living rooms, one for winter and one for summer.
