WELCOME

Dear Reader, ll around the world, exclusive residential properties in top locations are fetching record, never-before-seen sales prices. This is most evident where supply is extraordinarily low due to the uniqueness of the location. But it is not only pieces of real estate in soughtafter areas whose market values have reached new heights: moorings in prestigious marinas also command some of the world’s highest prices per square meter. Like pieces of real estate, their prices are determined by various factors, such as location, high demand and the limited availability of spaces. Marinas, particularly those in the European part of the Mediterranean – like in Ibiza and St Tropez – are in extremely high demand. With mooring fees of roughly 3,000 euros a day during the high season, the marina of Ibiza Magna, for example, is among the most expensive in Europe. The Marina Grande in Capri and the Marina di Porto Cervo in Sardinia are close runners-up, charging roughly 2,700 and 2,500 euros respectively. Those who wish to dock in such sought-after locations during the summer months must make arrangements well in advance. Personally, what fascinates me most in the world of yachts is the ever-increasing trend towards “floating homes.” Superyachts combine luxury, privacy and flexibility, while at the same time exuding genuine exclusivity. This is because they provide a guaranteed sea view in the most in-demand places in the world. They are also the embodiment of a longing for adventure and dreams of exclusive destinations. Many superyachts are several hundred feet long. Their interiors are custom-made and their living areas fully comparable to those of spacious onshore properties. It is impressive how many architects and interior designers are dedicated to designing and fitting out yachts. Those of you who prefer luxurious living on dry land, however, will – as always – find a selection of our most stunning real estate from around the globe on the following pages. Sincerely,

WELCOME

Happy Festive Season! It’s that time of year again for pre-Christmas cocktails, holiday dinners, New Year’s Eve parties and New Year’s events. But what’s the key to throwing a great party? “The host! It’s the host who sets the tone,” says Rena Kirdar Sindi, who turned her reputation for throwing the best parties from New York to London to Singapore into a business. We paid a visit to the author – our cover feature – at her house in St. Tropez in the French Riviera and coaxed her into disclosing some important tips for a successful evening. Growing up, beauty heir and entrepreneur Aerin Lauder also inherited a sense for elegant entertaining. The founder of the lifestyle label AERIN spends every Christmas in Aspen with her husband and two sons. She reveals how she spends her cozy winter break in the Colorado Rockies. The traditional Suvretta House, a long-established hotel in the famous St. Moritz ski resort, has been welcoming families to the Swiss Alps for the holidays for more than 100 years. Several continents away in a much warmer environment, Filippo Brignone, son of the avant-garde resort community founder Gian Franco Brignone, PHOTOS: CHRISTIAN SCHOPPE (1), © 2017 AERIN LLC/WWW.AERIN.COM (2), ASSOULINE.COM (1)

“Of course it can be said of the Feuerring brand that the communication – superb in terms of both form and content - perfectly presents the product, that the brand is the face of a carefully-structured sales operation and that numerous further criteria for well- rounded brand management are met – but ultimately, there is one fundamental factor which explains the success of this attractive brand: Behind it are people who simply want to get the Feuerring experience across, with all its functional benefits and all the emotional and social moments – or, in brief: their own joy in “barbecuing”. This is the feel of a brand lived out authentically”.

I’m like a sponge. I soak up everything I see. The impressions I collect populate a sort of database of images in my head. When I then receive requests from manufacturers, I draw on these images and turn them into designs. even bathroom ceramics. Where do you get all your ideas?

You recently designed the “Luv” bathroom range for Duravit. What inspired you in this instance? The subject matter made me think of a bowl filled with water that has been placed in the middle of a table. I also thought of pebbles on a beach, the kind whose 1–3 The oval is the characteristic shape surfaces are pleasant to the touch.

of the “Luv” range, which includes a number of above-counter and wall-mounted washbasins, bathtubs and “whirltubs,” consoles, vanity units and mirrors 4 Cecilie has a reputation for being an extremely versatile designer.

And how did you turn these images into actual de-

The way I work is rather traditional. I do a lot of drawing and start off using a pencil to find the right lines. Only then do I move to a computer and 3D models. With the “Luv” range, I focused especially on the very precise edges and consciously used tactile contrasts: the insides of the objects are glossy; their outsides are matte. Naturally, the glazing is essential for hygiene reasons, but in many ways the rougher outsides create an attractive contrast. signs?

How involved are you in the technical development of your designs?

I am always involved right from the start. It would be quite remiss of me not to contribute to the process. It isn’t enough to just deliver a sketch and then let others do the rest of the work. During the development phase many changes are made, so I have to be involved and know all the facts. After all, a project comes together bit by bit, and it is very much a team effort. Do you try out your own products? Yes, of course! I test all the products I design in my own home. If I don’t like a particular object or if it falls short somehow in everyday use, it should not be launched in the first place. That happened to me a few years ago, in a project where the development phase was just much too short — that didn’t work at all. In another case, when I developed outdoor furniture for the British company Gloster, I asked to borrow a teak chair in order to try out the material and to test it in my own environment. Good quality is very important to me and I was able to see how the wood performs. This was very helpful in my work. In the end, I have to be satisfied with the product, for after all, it will forever be associated with my name. What does “good quality” mean to you? To me, quality is intrinsically linked to good design and to sustainability, of course. We designers are able to create items that have longevity. This starts with the initial design and to a large extent also applies to our choices of materials. It is great when products have long lifespans and stay visually relevant, so that we end up using them for a long time and possibly even pass them on to our children. This is a slow process that neither manufacturers, nor designers, nor consumers can succeed in, if they only act by themselves. We will only be able to manage this by working together.

“How do you turn a good party into an amazing one? With just the right mix of guests, energy and location.” RENA KIRDAR SINDI

“I put a lot of effort into my costume because when you’ve been invited somewhere, you have a responsibility to make it a fun evening!”


on the harbor promenade in St. Tropez, you can literally feel that the good vibes have arrived. With her wild, black mane of hair, eyes that sparkle when she speaks and her infectious laugh, Rena Kirdar Sindi is a party queen right out of 1001 Nights. “Nobody gives incredible parties like her!,” the acclaimed New York Times wrote enthusiastically. In London, where she lives today, the invitations of the Iraqi-born mother of two daughters are the highlight of each season. The cosmopolitan daughter of Nemir A. Kirdar, the successful businessman who founded the investment bank Investcorp (Editor’s note: in the 1980s, Investcorp was one of the first banks to invest Arab money in western luxury firms such as Gucci, Saks Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.), attended Oxford, Columbia and Cambridge and in 2002 published a bestselling book, Be My Guest. A beautifully illustrated book of parties, it included a how-to guide to hosting them and is continually sold out. This coming spring, Assouline will be publishing a second Rena book. She also posts party tips and guidelines to a perfect event on her blog at beRguest.co.uk, which she is planning to turn into a onestop shop for everyone who needs support in planning their party. tepping into Café Senequier

You say it’s also the mix of guests that gives a party its special ener-

“I give one or two big parties every year for about 150 people. If you invite more than 200 you lose the intimacy. I want to be able to interact with every one of my guests. Each one has been invited for a reason – either because they are close friends, because they are fun to be around or because I would like to get to know them better. Or they are people who have invited me and I want to return the favor.” What is the most important ingredient for a really good party? “The host! It’s the host who sets the tone.” What’s preferable, a seated dinner or a flying buffet? “Seated! A good party needs to be choreographed. You cannot make a soup by just throwing in everything and hoping for the best. A good party has to be built up carefully and requires a smart seating plan. I see it as an art, and it’s how you create the magic.” gy. What’s your secret and how often do you entertain?

How does an Ivy League graduate become

“I was in my early twenties, doing an internship at the UN and living with my first husband in New York. I just started getting asked to host events for brands, probably because I knew so many interesting people thanks to the way I grew up. I loved doing it, and had lots of very creative ideas. Back in the ’90s, luxury brands like Dior also had very large event budgets. In 1992 I moved to Singapore. One day my mother called me saying how terrible it was that I had had such a good education but that all she ever heard people say about me was that I threw the best parties! She was concerned about my reputation, but I decided that instead of ridding myself of it, I would use my reputation to add value to the world – write a book or start a blog. Help people make smarter decisions when planning their parties.”

Majestic isolation: the legendary Suvretta House lies just a few kilometers outside of St. Moritz, at an altitude of 1,850 meters.

Fancy spending Christmas here? You’ll need to be patient, as the waiting list is long. This is due largely to the signature style of the founder, whose family still runs the hotel.

ow much time do you spend in Aspen

I’ve been coming to Aspen since the late 1980’s and I love that it really hasn’t changed. It’s still a very family-oriented place at all seasons. My family visits a few times during the winter and sometimes during the summer. How did you find the place? When we bought the house in 2010 it had just been built by a local architect and we fell in love with the flow of space, especially the open-plan ground floor, which is all centered around the incredible view.

The Unassuming Lord of Time The Swiss village of Fleurier is home to one of the world’s best watch manufacturers, founded by the quiet perfectionist Michel Parmigiani. Whether he is creating new watches or restoring centuries-old pieces: he simply knows his stuff. TEXT: Michelle Mussler PHOTOS: Parmigiani

T

eyes peering shyly from behind his glasses? The virtuoso watchmaker who inspires awe among connoisseurs and collectors? Michel Parmigiani revived watchmaking not once, but twice. First, by founding the Parmigiani Fleurier brand that produces new models of watches and table clocks of the highest quality. Then, with his workshop specializing in mechanical works of art that play music and where precious items from past centuries are restored. Every year, Parmigiani produces some 6,000 watches in the picturesque hamlet of Fleurier in the Swiss canton of Jura. The company makes all the movements itself – one of only ten manufacturers with such vertical integration. Almost 500 specialists practice 50 different trades in Fleurier. They produce cases, dials, micro-components and balance springs. “We have invested five years and almost 100 million Swiss franks in research,” Parmigiani says. His reputation has almost cult status and goes back to the 1980s. A freelance watchmaker at the time, he achieved a feat that quite a few of his colleagues had been trying to accomplish for years without success – breathing new life into a seemingly irrecoverably broken icon, the unique and extremely sophisticated, 200-year-old “Sympathique” pendulum table clock. “It was the greatest of challenges. I felt as though I was intoxicated. Bringing such a magnificent clock back to life is a little bit like playing God,” he says. Since that time, the slender Swiss gent with Italian roots has been all but inundated with inquiries.

This makes him all the more mysterious, just like his latest creation, with which he turns time upside-down. The “PF-Bugatti 390 Concept Watch” was created in collaboration with the car manufacturer. A cylindrical movement inside it moves the hands with the aid of an axial gear above the dial. “This is not a watch – it is an engine block that allows you to read the time on its side,” says Parmigiani. What he is referring to is the boldly unconventional, manual winding mechanism, in which a planetary gear transmits the power, instead of the conventional wheel train – a perfect match for the new Bugatti W16 engine. In addition to this, a flying minute tourbillon, which at four Hertz oscillates particularly fast, has also been included. In order for the watch not to run out of steam too quickly, it has been furnished with two barrels – mirroring the Bugatti’s two fuel tanks. hose who are not satisfied with a roughly 200,000-euro indulgence can order a custom-made model. Only genuine watchmakers like Parmigiani have the skills to manufacture such made-to-order, unique objects for collectors and watch aficionados from all over the world. “It can take more than a year. If – as in a recent order – the custom-made item is supposed to have a unique dial, case and different complications, there will be about ten watchmakers working on it.” Costs can quickly mount up to a million euros. Parmigiani also supplies the more affordable end of the market, however: the traditional “Tonda 1950” three-hand watch starts from roughly 9,000 euros. In a different price useums like the Les Arts Décoratifs category, Parmigiani’s penchant for historin Paris, the Hermitage in St. Petersical templates such as Ancient Greek architecture become apparent: the elegant “Toric burg and the Patek Philippe Museum of Watchmaking in Geneva are among his regChronomètre” boasts a coin-edge bezel that Modernity and zeitgeist within historical ular customers, as are private collectors and looks like a row of Doric columns.

Our source of inspiration are the impressions that our world has to offer in all its variety – such as the colours of Nepal, classic carpet patterns and 21st century art. A carpet is more than just an item of furniture to us. It stands for individuality, wellbeing and harmony. We see it as a connecting element in a room. A handmade piece of art for the fifth wall, the floor.

Four teams competed last summer at the ninth Engel & Völkers Polo Cup surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Balearic Isles.

Polo Cup on Mallorca Christian Völkers hosted the ninth Engel & Völkers Polo Cup at “Son Coll,” his private estate on the southwestern coast of the island of Mallorca. Hundreds of people accepted the invitation to attend the three-day tournament and subsequent dinner party, among them members of the worldwide Engel & Völkers network as well as a large number of international guests.

to have been able to host the Engel & Völkers Polo Cup once again. It is a special event that I like to share with my friends who are as passionate about polo as I am,” said Christian Völkers, CEO of Engel & Völkers AG, at the close of the 2017 tournament. Over 700 guests – more than in each of the eight previous years – accepted the invitation to spend three days at his private estate on the southwestern coast of the island of Mallorca. What a logistical achievement it must have been to bring all those people, ponies and equipment down the serpentine roads to “Son Coll.” But it was definitely worth it: the polo field here is regarded as one of the best in Europe and boasts a magnificent view of the Mediterranean. Polo is becoming more and more popular every year here on Mallorca, and the annual E&V Cup is one of biggest events on the social and sporting calendar. The tournament always takes place on three consecutive days. This past summer, four teams of three played against each other in a competition involving a grand total of 50 polo ponies. Among the top international players who took part were Bautista Bayugar (handicap +6), Adrián Laplacette (handicap +6), Christopher Winter (handicap +3) and Sacha Pictet (handicap +1). The tournament host Christian Völkers climbed into the saddle himself and played for Team Engel & Völkers. The New Folies took home the Polo Cup Trophy after winning the tournament. “I was particularly pleased to see so many enthusiastic and talented young polo players taking part,” said Christian Völkers. Once again, Engel & Völkers Charity, which in May 2009 started an elementary school in Togo, West Africa, held a fundraiser for the project, selling jewelry by Maria Sole Ferragamo, the daughter of the Italian designer Leonardo Ferragamo, as well as pieces by the local Mallorcan jewelry brand La Morenita to support the school.

Barber Osgerby, Projects Jana Scholze, Phaidon, € 75

Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby have been collaborating for more than 20 years – since 1996 to be exact. The accomplished British industrial designers’ oeuvre comprises installations, lighting, industrial and furniture design. Among their most famous works are the “Tip Ton” chair and the 2012 Olympic torch. This 312-page volume featuring 400 illustrations shines a light on all their projects and outlines their approach and philosophy.

Mallorca

Michael Poliza, teNeues, approx. € 40

Libraries

Candida Höfer, Schirmer Mosel, approx. € 50 Molecular: The Spanish design studio Kambiam take their inspiration from atoms and neurons. Their “Trap” shelves can be combined to form larger units. Price on request.

BOOK

TIP

The absence of people is what makes Candida Höfer’s images so special. The German photographer is fascinated by libraries, and this illustrated book is an homage to “the cathedrals of knowledge, the temples of wisdom, the oases of calm,” as she calls them. The book also features an essay by Umberto Eco.

Gurlitt: Status Report

Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany & Museum of Fine Arts Bern, Hirmer, approx € 30

Five years ago, over a thousand works of art believed lost were discovered in properties belonging to Cornelius Gurlitt. This first dossier showcases more than 450 works of art – by Dix, Cézanne, Kandinsky and Monet, among others – that formed part of his collection. They are accompanied by essays about their historical context and the much-debated term “Nazi-looted art.

100 Contemporary Brick Buildings Philip Jodidio, Taschen, € 50

The history of brickwork goes back millennia. Hardly surprising then, that it was high time for its story to be told. A popular building material from Asia to Europe, bricks have been a mainstay of contemporary architecture. With the aid of 100 specially chosen structures, this volume demonstrates why, and how beautifully, star architects from Tadao Ando to Herzog & de Meuron utilize the material. 648 pages – a mammoth oeuvre in two volumes.

Architecture Fin-de-Siècle

Keiichi Tahara, Riichi Miyake, Taschen, € 250, 10,000-copy limited edition

Three volumes, 966 pages and over 500 images – a life’s work. The Japanese photographer Keiichi Tahara was obsessed with “fin de siècle” architecture: from façades to door handles, from curved staircases to chandeliers. He found the beauty of that era everywhere: Europe, Russia, Turkey – in buildings designed by Gaudí, Horta, Loos or Mackintosh. Amazing photos with text by Riichi Miyake.

Nature photographer Michael Poliza normally specializes in photographing undiscovered places full of wild animals or perilously steep cliffs. Places we dare not go ourselves, but can nevertheless daydream about, thanks to his photographs. Now, he has produced an illustrated book about Mallorca. Far from being tame, Poliza’s profile of the island is colorful and multifaceted: at times cheerful and boisterous, at others romantic and tranquil. It’s his declaration of love to one of the world’s most popular islands.

Center Stage

W

Now two of them have even joined forces: London-based studios Thomas Heatherwick and Foster + Partners collaborated on the designs for the Bund Finance Center (BFC) in Shanghai. At the heart of this 420,000-square meter mixed-use development featuring offices, a boutique hotel and shopping malls is an art and cultural center. In addition to the exhibition spaces and function rooms, it boasts a stage whose design has been inspired by the open sets of traditional Chinese theater. The exterior cladding of the building is reminiscent of lavish draped fabric, a playful nod to opulent theater curtains. In fact, the cladding consists of bronze tubes that – seen up-close – look like organ pipes. Although they “cover” part of the building, they also allow a direct view of the stage area on one side. The Bund Finance Center is prominently located on the famous Bund riverside promenade that runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River. To some extent, the buildings mark one of the end points of this world-famous Shanghai street. The development has been designed to ensure pedestrian permeability; its architecture highlights the point where the city’s old town, the Bund and the new financial district meet. hether in Berlin, Hong Kong or in the U.S., British architects have been raising the bar around the world for many years.
