DECOREX Decorex, the UK’s leading destination for interior design, will take place this September (17th-20th) as the opening destination of the London Design Festival. Established in 1978, Decorex celebrates 40 years of design collaborations, focusing both on the strength of its past and current relationships and looking towards future partnerships. Over the course of four days, visitors will have the opportunity to see new collections from more than 400 established and emerging companies showcasing the latest designs spanning the full spectrum of design. An array of established brands returns to Decorex this year presenting their collections, among them: Baroncelli, Cantori, Devon & Devon, Justin Van Breda, Ochre and Sofa.com. As every year, Decorex will also showcase the work of new exhibitors such as Bay Gallery Home, creator of the world's first Australian Aboriginal Interiors collection, who will introduce My Country, its inaugural core ranges of wallpapers, ceramic wall tiles & rugs. Scottish designer Iona Crawford will present a collection of linen velvets, soft furnishings, wall coverings, prints and ceramics designed in collaboration world-renowned chef Andrew Fairlie. Mini Moderns will be debuting its Saturday Night/Sunday Morning collection at Decorex this year inspired by the music, literature, art, film and cult television during the 1980s.


17

To mark the show’s 40th Anniversary, this year’s main entrance installation, Disruptive Dining, will feature four unique and elegant dining scenes which bring together the worlds of fashion, floristry, set and interior design into a colourful dining interpretation. Created by leading designers including Matthew Williamson at Osborne & Little, Larry Walshe, Beata Heuman with Fromental and EligoStudio. The main exhibition entrance café, curated by three leading Derbyshire brands, will celebrate the excellence and creative heritage of the county. Innovative lighting designers and artisans Blackpop, Curiousa & Curiousa and Royal Crown Derby not only share their Derbyshire base, but a passion for design, British manufacturing and the celebration of colour. Together, this Derbyshire Collective aim to establish an opulent yet outré aesthetic, championing innovative Derbyshire design, in celebration of Decorex’s landmark year. Decorex’s acclaimed feature, Future Heritage, curated by applied arts and design critic, Corinne Julius, showcases works by the names to collect in British contemporary craft. Makers involved this year include: David Marques, Helen Carnac & David Gates, Lauren Nauman, Matt Davis, Merel Karhof and Marc Trotereau, Naomi Mcintosh, Pia Wusternberg, Richard Lowry, Simon Hasan and Zac Eastwood-Bloom. The Champagne Bar, an annual fixture and central meeting place, will be designed by interior architect and designer Shalini Misra. The design, which is inspired by The Great Exhibition of 1851, will take centre stage at the show. Rich velvets will be paired with geometric and figurative motifs, palace ironwork and Victoriana finishes for a contemporary take on the original design. The heritage colour palette will be complemented with finishing flourishes, such as decorative screen dividers and palm plants. As the event’s showpiece, the bar will be a luxurious location for relaxing with friends as well as a place for the meeting of creative and innovative minds. The much-anticipated Seminar Programme will offer visitors a series of insightful debates that will explore industry relevant topics. Highlights include a discussion on designing for the millennial with multi-award winning Afroditi Krassa, a session on taking your brand global with Nina Campbell, Sophie Ashby and Natalia Miyar, and panels with leading designers Martin Hubert, Guy Oliver and Sue Timney.

REVOLUTIONARY TRINETIC TASK CHAIR Trinetic by Boss Design is the world’s first fully certified task chair to provide dynamic support without the need for manual user adjustment. Trinetic is the world’s first fully certified task chair to provide dynamic support without the need for manual user adjustment. Providing ergonomic excellence and an unrivalled level of comfort, it can be specified across a broad array of settings in the workplace. From a collaborative work chair to an eight-hour task chair, Trinetic responds to the needs of the individual user at any given time. Trinetic has no manual user adjustments. Instead, it uses three independent pivot points that combine to create a chair that ‘follows’ rather than resists the user. This promotes better support through a wide range of body movements, and has been proven to increase contact with the user’s body through the full length of the seat and back surface compared to traditional synchronised mechanisms. This provides greater comfort and encourages a more dynamic user experience. Boasting a sophisticated and refined aesthetic, Trinetic is built around an aluminium cradle, which can be finished in a wide array of styles. It can be supplied in any combination of mesh, fabric or leather seat and backrest, together with a choice of four and five-star base options. It is ideal for those who want a task chair, but can also be specified as a touchdown work, meeting or conference chair. Design Director at Boss Design, Mark Barrell, comments: “Having completely deconstructed our market’s established ideas about how a task chair should move and what it should offer the user, Trinetic has set the benchmark for the next generation of office seating. Courtesy of its pioneering design, Trinetic provides tangible ergonomic and commercial benefits in order to meet the demands of a modern workplace.”

Mark adds: “It is an honour to be recognized by the Red Dot judging panel and a very proud moment for everybody involved in this epic project.�

High-quality and practical solutions wedi has been operating with success for nearly 20 years in the United Kingdom. However, in the past few years many competitors have appeared on the UK market – prompting customers to rightfully ask the question: Why choose wedi when there are numerous other waterproof and tileable solutions to choose from? Unlike the other brands, wedi has been tried and tested by industry professionals for the past 34 years. The company was founded in Germany in 1983, when Helmut Wedi – a master tiler – set himself a goal to develop high-quality but above all practical solutions for tradesmen which provide real added value in their day-to-day work. His goal became the philosophy of his company and made his family name into a worldwide-known brand. Today, wedi operates in 36 countries worldwide, including the United States, which despite having one of the most diverse markets in the world, has just given a home to wedi’s newest manufacturing plant to be able to cope with the demand. The key to the success of the brand is that their products are well thought out and very well made: the system safety that wedi guarantees as well as the straightforward and time-saving installation takes centre stage, while the feedback received from their customers provide the basis for further developments of wedi’s products, systems and services. The core of wedi’s building board - which forms the basis of all of their tileable elements - is a high-density extruded polystyrene foam which is 100% waterproof to the core. Its cement coated surface forms an incredibly strong and stable base for adhesive thanks to the integrated fibre mesh fabric, making it perfect for tiling. What sets wedi aside from other tileable solutions on the market is that its products also provide fantastic insulation, therefore save on energy costs and provide long-term protection against mould and fungus. What’s more, due to their A+ labelling – according to German and European regulations and laws – these products are also non-hazardous and low-emission. Whatever the project - renovation or new build, wooden or concrete, wetroom, bathroom or wellness you will find a variety of suitable elements in wedi’s extensive product range. •

all elements are designed to interlock and work with all other wedi system components and accessories, that truly complete the installation and waterproofing system, thus guaranteeing system safety

the quality is consistent across the whole product range, hence each and every one of their products comes with a 10 year product quality guarantee

wedi also offer numerous modular solutions and diverse systems which allow extensive freedom of design

all customised building solutions wedi offer through their bespoke service, are pre-assembled and tested in their factory before dispatch ensuring easy and safe installation on site

products are extremely lightweight and straightforward to install avoiding exhausting lifting, saving time, stress and money

on-call technical support Monday to Friday and on-site support for projects where needed

wedi continues to be a family owned company today, managed by Stephan Wedi, staying true to their original motto: made by professionals for professionals.

Opus A traditional shaped stove but with a contemporary twist. Opus are well known for their contemporary upright stoves but their new range, the Tempos, are the traditional square shape but with an ultra modern look. It is a stove pared down to its essence – elegant clean lines and a glowing window of fire to fill the room with firelight, warmth and movement. Beautifully designed and intuitive to use, they are almost industrial in their simplicity. Available in three different sizes, they can come in many different guises – on a log store or on a pedestal, set on a bench or built in as an insert. There is even the option to have any model double sided.

Fondis stoves form part of the fabric of your home, an integrated feature in the room. Continual development and innovation means that potential issues in modern buildings, like airtightness, have been considered and taken care of. Insprire your interior design with a window of fire and experience natural, nurturing heat.

Fondis Can you have a real fire in a modern well-sealed house? It is possible utilising one of these beautifully designed airtight stoves from the French stove-builder Fondis which draw their combustion air directly from the outside. Built into the wall, the huge glass window gives a stunning view of the fire. Safe, clean and controllable these stoves burn with a wonderful flame pattern, filling the house with firelight. Their secret is the guillotene door that disappears up into the wall at the lift of a finger. With the door down you have a room sealed stove, perfect for an airtight build. Raise the door to load it, or just to enjoy the experience of an open fire. Winter evenings will never be the same again.

110 future proof. 2017 has already been a breakthrough year for RAIS, with the launch of its first ever stove to use gas as a fuel source. The VIVA L Gas aims to give customers an authentic fireplace experience with just the push of a button. RAIS’s new gas stove joins the awardwinning VIVA L series which recently won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for its customisable and multiple design options. Now available in three heights, thanks to the introduction of an extra tall 160 cm model, the VIVA L Series comes in six different colours and a variety of different finishes. RAIS welcomes their customers to tap into their own creative potential becoming co-designers of their stoves. The award winning RAIS customiser allows you to choose the shape, material and colour that will help spark a wealth of inspiration on how to decorate your home as well as creating a unique and individual style with a stove from RAIS. Knowing that the difference is in the detail, the RAIS collection not only includes wood- burning & gas stoves but also a wide selection of accessories that create coherence, unity and synergy providing A stove from RAIS, Denmark’s premier quality stove manufacturer, is a superior fusion of aesthetics and technology which combines form with function and design with craftmanship. The result? Exclusive eye-catching stoves that are in a league of their own. With nearly 90 percent of RAIS products being exported to Western Europe and the United States, RAIS’s driving force is constant development and quality without compromise. With extensive industry knowledge and close attention paid with regards to worldwide trends, RAIS are forever expanding their product range and brand. Earlier this year saw the launch of the Ecodesign Ready scheme, a new initiative aimed at lowering emissions and improving air quality, becoming mandatory for all stoves by 2022. Due to the strictness of the new performance criteria many stoves on the market will need to be completely redesigned, however the majority of RAIS stoves already meet the mark due to the incorporation of the most advanced combustion technology, meaning RAIS stoves are already

the perfect finishing touches. This year, exclusively available in the UK, RAIS presented the Q-Tee 2C, a new curvaceous version of the extremely popular, minimalist Q-Tee 2. With the same robustness of construction but with a softer and more round profile, the new Q-Tee 2C features a large window pane providing a magnificent view of the flames. Available in two classic colours, black or platinum, the Q-Tee 2C can be customised to your liking and fits perfectly into any style of home. As the official UK Importer & Distributor, RAIS stoves are exclusively available through Robeys and our valued network of retailers located throughout the UK and Ireland. Our purpose built riverside showroom also showcases a variety of RAIS stoves, many of which are exhibited in live displays.

How Benfield ATT help you create

The Low Energy Buildings you’ve always wanted… Intrigued by the claims of this ‘full service’ company we decided to investigate their approach a little more. Value Engineering: First, we wanted to know what was meant by ‘Value Engineering’ (VE). Professor Dr. Michael Benfield, their CEO, explained: “By focusing on the various ‘functions’ of a client’s building and its components, we aim to identify and remove unnecessary costs while at the same time maintaining - even enhancing - its performance.” Comprehensive Knowledge: This approach blends their extensive and rather unique knowledge of all forms of timber structure, building science, regulations, and state of the art products with individual client’s design concepts. “For us, value engineering starts with environmental planning and regulatory impositions as part of our analytical and technical design processes.” he explained. “These feed our drive for, and commitment to, sustainable development through into waste reduction, recycling and lean manufacture. It embraces a ‘Pride in the Job’ and a ‘Right First Time’ mentality that is applied to all our Design & Build (D&B) operations.” Focus on End User: Paying attention to end user demands is central to Benfield ATT’s approach (the ATT stands for Advanced Timber Technologies, by the way). They believe it enables them to deliver highly effective, quality buildings for projects large & small. This includes providing solutions for difficult to develop sites, like soft ground, steeply sloping land and potential flood plain areas. Product Selection: Self-evidently, to value engineer design & build solutions, the selection of the most appropriate products needs the services and methods used to be an integral part of the process. Working closely with architects, building designers, engineers and quantity surveyors, Benfield ATT helps select and specify those which are most functionally appropriate and cost effective. In turn this encourages the delivery of high quality products to be protected, and results in saving time for on-site build operations. All of this, they claim, reduces costs, enhances client’s projects and helps to make them one of the most competitive full service timber engineering design and build firms in the UK. Fabric First: In the current business climate it is perhaps not surprising to find Efficiency, Performance & Cost Effectiveness to be included in their key current considerations. This is most clearly evidenced in their ‘Fabric First” approach to designing really effective building envelopes. “There is a crucial need to deliver highly energy efficient structures with optimum levels of insulation, minimal thermal transmission and appropriate airtightness for floors, walls, roofs, windows and doors.” explains Prof Benfield. Unsurprising, therefore, that in their drive toward Zero Carbon and minimal heating requirements, they offer factory Insulated Panels, SIP’s, Green Oak, Post & Beam, Glulam and Hybrid structures all orientated to achieve what was Code for Sustainable Homes levels 4, 5, 6 and Passivhaus Standards. Specialist Builders’ Merchants: Potentially, the procurement of design specific components can create unforeseen difficulties, for example locating the source of supplies, avoiding delays in delivery lead times, quality assurance, and securing ‘best value’ products and terms. Here Benfield ATT’s long established connections, access and volume buying capabilities as manufacturers and selective builder’s merchants, enables them to secure and supply such requirements in the most timely and competitive manner as part of their value engineered, design & build methodology. Catalysts for Quality: “We believe that our approach to helping you create the ‘Low Energy Buildings you’ve always dreamed of …’ is distinctly different” says Benfield. “We welcome collaboration with other construction professionals in our drive to achieve this.” In doing so, his company aims to help enhance the professional construction team of architects, other designers, engineers, quantity surveyors, contractors, house-builders, developers, et al, facilitating the delivery of the high quality buildings they and their clients both need and want. And, if end user clients like self-builders and home improvers lack any of these skills, to be the catalyst drawing in those that are most appropriate for each individual project. To compliment this they offer a selective part or full project management service. Professional Partnerships: While they are happy to engage in ‘one off’ projects, Benfield ATT see the greatest benefits to industry and end user occupiers as coming from the establishment of long term ‘partnering’ style arrangements with other construction professionals. This can include Joint Venture arrangements for specific developments, which may be of interest to land owners and those who wish to fund, say, housing schemes, but lack the technical knowledge and industry experience necessary to make them successful. In such cases they believe that their comprehensive team approach can be highly valuable.

JOHN EADON LAUNCHING AT LONDON DESIGN FAIR 2017

New designer-maker JOHN EADON will be launching his first new furniture collection, MIMA, at London Design Fair, September 21 – 24 2017. The 'Spindle Furniture' designed for the MIMA collection takes inspiration from the techniques of Windsor chair making, resulting in a strong but lightweight construction. The spindles create an open and minimal aesthetic allowing for patterns of light and shade to play across the surfaces. A Warwickshire based designer-maker, JOHN EADON creates fresh contemporary designs, furnishing the habits of living, informed by the crafts of the past. The MIMA Collection, in a choice of solid British Hardwoods, includes: MIMA Record Table: a side table which can store vinyl records and have a record player on the top or, alternatively, show plants, books or display prize objects. MIMA Magazine Table: a Hexagon shaped side table with splayed spindles working as legs, shelf support and magazine rack. MIMA Table Lamp: with three legs joined to a Hexagonal boss and brass lamp fittings and choice of braided flex. MIMA Candle Holders: set of three tapered hexagonal holders in three heights. MIMA Plant Stand: currently in two heights and widths, with the tall one able to display plants on an additional lower shelf. MIMA Shelving: wall hung ladder shelving system in solid wood with choice of 6” or 8” lift off interchangeable shelves and selection of 4 bracket lengths available. These can be as sets or individual components to mix and match for your own unique layout, a single bracket on its own can even function as a plant hanger.


139

Pieces produced for the MIMA Collection are tactile and handmade to a high standard of craftsmanship, embracing the natural character of the British hardwoods used. Designs made in the JOHN EADON workshop are made to order, making it possible to tailor pieces to individual requirements or to commission a new bespoke piece. Background: A Fine Art graduate from Norwich School of Art and Design 2008, (now called Norwich University of the Arts), John Eadon has built on a background of farming, art and woodwork, as wide and varied as artist technician work to shop-fitter and joiner, festival and theatre set builder to specialist joinery for English Heritage and woodwork/3D technician at Norwich University of the Arts. Returning to the base of the family farm in Warwickshire in 2013, John Eadon renovated parts of the house and farm buildings to provide a home for his family and a workshop to make from. 2016 saw a renewed interest and focus on furniture design for John, and the development of the first collection from JOHN EADON, to launch at London Design Fair 2017. Meet JOHN EADON at London Design Fair on Stand G26 in Hall T1. The Fair will take place 21-24 September 2017 at the Old Truman Brewery, Hanbury Street, London, E1 6QL, UK.

TOUCH IRONMONGERY LTD www.atouchofbrass.co.uk 210 Fulham Road, Chelsea London SW10 9PJ

THE PERFECT TOUCH

E

stablished 33 years ago in October 1982, Touch Ironmongery is one of London’s leading ironmongers. Originally called “A Touch of Brass”, the firm changed their name in 2003 in reaction to slowly advancing market changes in architectural ironmongery which is no longer supplied solely in brass, and to also reflect the broader range of products and finishes that they sell. In fact today, Touch can supply a wide range of finishes including Brass, Satin Brass, Polished Chrome, Satin Chrome, Polished Nickel, Satin Nickel, Copper, Bronze -solid and plated, BMA, Antique Brass, Black, Pewter, Ceramic, Leather, Stainless Steel, Satin Stainless Steel, Gun Metal, and the list keeps growing. Whatever finish you require, Touch can help you get the right look. Touch occupy their recently refurbished showroom at 210 Fulham Road, Chelsea, where they display a vast range of their 5,000 products. With a customer base including Interior Designers, Builders and individuals who are interested in the top end of the Ironmongery

market, Touch mainly supply to residential premises but hotel and office properties also contribute to their vast clientele. The company also have a healthy export market to all corners of the world, namely the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. Touch’s owner and founder, Bill Benham, has 33 years’ experience in the ironmongery trade, as do his colleagues Jim Haselup and Alan Blanchard. Saleem Qureshi is the newest member of our team and has 10 years’ experience, meaning their knowledge is unrivalled in this industry. The range of products supplied by Touch date from circa 1640 French (Louise XIV) and cover all subsequent periods (Georgian, Edwardian & Victorian), art deco and contemporary pieces also make up the product ranges. In addition, Touch showcases the very best of British manufacturing; the best ranges are still produced in the Midlands by craftsmen in factories dating back 200 years or more. Touch also sell European manufactured goods which is considered to be of a very good quality and in recent years they have introduced some of the far

eastern made products, albeit in a limited range but cost effective. With trends continuously evolving, new innovative products are constantly under development. Touch understand that keeping up with the fashion-shifts is imperative in order to provide every customer with the best solution for their requirements. Ironmongery can be a difficult and complicated aspect of a building project, as a result Touch aim to take this awkward aspect and make it user friendly and clear to understand by offering an on-site service where they carry out a detailed door by door, window by window, room by room Ironmongery schedule, highlighting all requirements and identifying any items that can be refurbished. Refurbishment is a large part of the business; Touch will undertake complete ironmongery refurbishment projects, and can restore old paint covered door furniture to their former glory, looking as new, at a fraction of the cost to replace.

Selectaglaze For 64 years, County Hall served as the home of the British Government, in the form of the London County Council, and later the GLC (Greater London Council) and ILEA (Inner London Education Authority). In 2016, London venue company ‘etc.venues’ opened a conference and event space in County Hall. It features 20 multi-purpose interconnecting spaces including two river fronting suites for groups of up to 900. An important aspect of the client’s brief was careful restoration of the period features. Synergy Architects turned to Selectaglaze, to install thermal and acoustic efficient secondary glazing, except where there were dado rails, which the Conservation Officer was keen to retain. As there were no rising ducts of a satisfactory size, air needed to be extracted through the existing windows. Secondary glazing was therefore required to the lower part of these windows.

The installation of secondary glazing has enhanced business prospects at ‘etc.venues’, with conference rooms, event suites and bars now providing an ambient and warm environment to suit any event.

Selectaglaze installed a total of 148 secondary glazing units. Those units exceeding 1600mm high were fit with a 6mm toughened low-E glass. A minimum glass to glass cavity of 150mm allowed for optimal noise reduction.

Established in 1966 and Royal Warrant Holder since 2004, Selectaglaze is the leading specialist in secondary glazing. It boasts a range of products to suit all projects from Listed buildings, to new build hotels.

All aluminium profiles and timber grounds were powder coated in a matt grey finish.

DESIGN MASTERCLASS FROM LIFTON HOMELIFTS Premium HomeLift brand Lifton offers homeowners an easier way of travelling from floor to floor in the home with its luxurious and stylish domestic lift. High-tech and prestigious, the Lifton HomeLift is a lifestyle product aimed at users who are looking to enhance their home environment at the touch of a button. The blueprint for this lift is way ahead of its time. Its self-supporting design means it has no need for noisy hydraulics and does not sit in a lift shaft or pit or even require load bearing walls. There is no major building work either as the Lifton HomeLift just requires a small ceiling opening and then slots right in.

Styled and engineered in Germany, it has curved lines and a soft, warm grey aluminium finish with a matching glazed lift car. It features soothing blue LED lights at the top and bottom of the car for ease of use at night. Light years away from unsightly stairlifts and bulky square domestic lifts, the Lifton HomeLift give homeowners the chance to fully enjoy their beautiful home without having to downsize to a bungalow or perhaps build a downstairs extension when stairs become prohibitive. It is the ultimate upgrade for any home and can add value to your property. The added advantage of the Lifton HomeLift is not just its graceful design but it is also the easiest domestic lift to install in the marketplace, typically taking just one day to fit.

One Lifton customer, Tony Hamilton from Oxfordshire, said: “Our architects were astonished at the engineering absence of hydraulics and the simple installation process. The lift is a definite feature, and we find friends are fascinated with its elegant simplicity, and all want a ride in it!”. For more information about Lifton visit www.lifton.co.uk, email info@lifton.co.uk or contact 0808 250 4739.

How Nature Makes Everything BetterIncluding New-Century Modern Furniture Design Photo by: Jeff Vioski

When the world around us seems to spin a bit out of control, many of us feel a natural tug to get outdoors. Once outside, the world can look quite different. Nature holds the power to shift our perspectives;

to calm our nerves, to balance and refresh. It soothes our souls. For real. Science has actually proven the positive effects of nature on both our emotional and physical well-being. www.vioski.com

A STEAMY PROBLEM SOLVED WITH demistaTM Steam can be a problem. Think steamed up spectacles when out walking in cold weather. Or steamed up car windscreen, heat on the inside, freezing outside, and the bathroom mirror! All that constant wiping, blowing and cleaning. The first two occurrences are difficult to solve, but the steamed up bathroom mirror is a problem that is easily solved. Install demistaTM heated mirror pads. These pads can be used behind mirrors on bathroom walls or on bathroom cabinets. They are easy to fit, have no maintenance requirements and cost

a minimal amount to run. No more wiping, and smearing the surface. Just a clear view almost instantaneously once the pad is switched on. demistaTM heated mirror pads are the first choice of anyone installing or refurbishing a bathroom. The pads are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and multiples can be used for extremely large surfaces. They can also be fitted on bathroom cabinets.

Building material wood also for the bathroom

Driving through the Thurgau village Basadingen, you will not expect anything ex-traordinary. But if you take a closer look, you will discover a truly unique company at Gemeindehausstrasse: the company ALEGNA, which produces bathtubs and bathroom furniture made of wood in a unique process.

The company, which was founded at the end of the nineties, was originally active in yacht construc-tion, before the owner of the company, Thomas Löpfe – a trained yacht builder - came up with the idea of unique wooden bathtubs and bath mats. His many years of experience in yacht construction, as well as in collaboration with renowned designers, enabled him to create bathtubs and furniture in noble shapes and high quality.

Home lift by Newmatic Elevators

30

Until now, installing a lift into your property would have been a hugely difficult and expensive process. It would have required a lift shaft being built, a pit that needed excavating and a machine room being installed. However, with the revolutionary ‘Newmatic Elevator’, these costly procedures are a thing of the past. Taking up relatively little space, this lift works using simple physics with the air pressure difference above and beneath the cabin transporting you to where you want to go. Safety, of course, is paramount and with the elevators multi-locking mechanisms, it is widely regarded as the safest on the market, with low maintenance costs too. A service visit is required only once a year. These lifts are extremely energy efficient, with virtually zero energy consumption used on descent.

Bentley Motors has recentley announced the new Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner, inspired by luxury yachts. Bentley's bespoke commissioning division, Mulliner, has created the ultimate edition of the Continental GT Convertible in collaboration with British yacht experts, Princess Yachts, and takes inspiration from yacht design. Defined by brilliant Glacier White and Sequin Blue hues externally, and inspired by the clean, confident design lines and materials of yachts internally, the Galene Edition by Mulliner combines the best elements of an oceanic lifestyle with luxury convertible motoring. It is powered by Bentley's refined 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 powerplant, with 507 PS and 660 Nm and benefits from Bentley's elegant, four-layered retractable hood which keeps occupants in the same unruffled environment that the hard-top Continental GT coupe provides. Designed by the Ocean: Clean, Confident Lines The external design of the new Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner captures the iridescent sparkle of crystal clear waters. Painted in pristine Glacier White, with a matching bodywork kit, the Galene Edition is specified with lower brightware in Sequin Blue, a timeless detail and elegant reminder of the life aquatic. A dark blue hood and striking 21” polished Propeller Wheels complete Mulliner’s external signature on the Galene Edition. Inspired by Luxury Yachts, Created by Mulliner The interior of the Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition pays homage to the classic opulence, finest hand-crafted materials and exquisite details that are championed both by yachts and Bentley cars. The seats are in Linen and Portland hides with Camel hand cross stitching, the door panels are Linen, Portland and Brunel. Linen, Brunel and Camel accentuate the dashboard, centre console and armrests, whilst the steering wheel is Linen and Brunel with a Camel 12 o’clock stripe.

GROWING MEN’S TREND: UNIQUE JEWELLERY Joséphine Bailey on Men’s jewellery and the trend of individuality Customisable and transformable jewellery is the newest trend taking men’s jewellery by storm. Bespoke suits have historically been popular with men primarily due to fitting their frames as opposed to showcasing their individuality, however with jewellery the focus is on highlighting their uniqueness. Three high-end jewellery brands in particular have capitalised on this, creating unique accessories for men that reflect the elegance, detail and sophistication inherent in one of a kind jewellery pieces.

Whereas Anil Arjandas and Julien Riad Sahyoun’s designs are specifically tailored towards men, Anglo-Chinese designer Mary Ching’s pieces were originally directed at women, but due to a huge demand, a new collection is to be launched specifically for men. Mary Ching specialises in creating unique, fine jewellery accessories, or ‘amulets’, for watches. The amulets are revolutionary and beautiful designs by entrepreneur Alison MC Yeung, who came up with the concept during her years as a student at the prestigious design school Central Saint Martins, in London. The design of her amulets are truly spectacular, as they allow clients to personalise and customise their time pieces with luxury accessories made from precious stones, metals and diamonds, but without damaging, and hence devaluing, the watches themselves. The result is an exquisitely bejewelled and distinctive accessory to personalise any timepiece, whilst ensuring the integrity of the watches own design.

THE ART OF CREATING A CONTEMPORARY TEQUILA BRAND – FIFI-MAY WALKER Contrary to the belief that tequila is just for shooting, a new Scottish tequila brand, UWA Tequila is using their roots to educate consumers about how this refined sipping spirit should really be consumed. The spirit is actually distilled from a fully matured blue Weber agave, which takes a surprising 8 years minimum to reach harvesting age. It can only also be made in a specific region (similar to Champagne or cognac): the Mexican state of Jalisco and very few surrounding areas, and is harvested by a very specific type of farmer – the Jimador - whose skills have been passed down from generation to generation since tequila’s inception in 1666. There are nearly 300 different varieties of agave, around 200 of which can be found in Mexico. These grow in a wide variety of colours and sizes, but only one can be used to make tequila, ‘A gave Tequilana A. Weber Blue azul’. Originally named by a European botanist named Weber, the blue reference was added later due to the slight hue to its green foliage, very evident when viewing an entire field, so much so that the plant is better known simply as ‘blue agave’.


187

Harvested agave plants are known as piñas, and are baked in steam ovens to convert the starchy sap contained in the piña to fermentable sugar. Traditionally, a steam heated masonry oven called a ‘horno’ was used to slow bake the agave for 24-48 hours, though many distilleries now use modern autoclaves which are basically stainless steel tubes with a sealable door at one end and act like huge pressure cookers to bake the agave within a fraction of the time. As cooking too quickly increases the risk of burning the sugars and creating a bitter caramel taste, UWA maintain using the traditional hornos to make sure every batch is slow cooked to perfection. After cooking, the piñas are crushed and shredded to release the sugary juice, and the resulting fermentable sugars in the agave juice are then converted into alcohol using yeast. The remaining liquid is then distilled at least twice. The product of the first distillation is known as ‘ordinario’, and it is only after the second distillation that the distillate may be termed ‘tequila’. The clear tequila that results from the second distillation may be bottled and sold as ‘blanco’ tequila, though UWA triple distil for an even smoother taste. In contrast, reposado and añejo tequilas are aged in oak, so over time the wood can impart tannins that soften and mellow the spirit and add character. Considering this process creating any tequila takes time, patience and skill; so it comes with a great amount of pressure and expectation to create a truly unique tequila.


188


189

Taking this challenge square on is UWA Tequila, Scotland’s first tequila company. Formed in September 2016, the tequila company is making waves in the industry by being the first in the world to create aged tequilas by solely ageing them in individual Speyside whisky casks. Individual and unique, the brand will launch its first batch of super premium craft tequilas in the UK in October. A 20-mile drive from their hometown of Aberdeen, Michael Ballantyne and Ross Davidson, co-founders of UWA Tequila, select the very best oak whisky casks used by a premium Scottish Speyside distillery to age their reposado and añejo tequila’s in. Once selected, the impressive casks are then exported to Tequila, Mexico where they are filled with 100% Blue Weber lowland agave tequila, which is left to age and rest. Its core range of products includes a platinum blanco, a seven-month aged reposado and a 14 month aged añejo. Michael Ballantyne, co-founder of UWA Tequila, said: “UWA Tequila is like nothing else on the market at the moment. We’re the first company to ever have aged tequila in Scotch whisky casks without blending the liquid with various other barrels - we’re extremely proud of that. “The tequila industry has changed over the years, just like many other spirits have, and what we’re trying to do at UWA is to infuse a modern flair into the tequila market. When individuals think of tequila, the majority of them will immediately refer to it as a shooting spirit, when in fact it’s so much more than that. “We’re trying to encourage people to start enjoying tequila’s as you would a single malt whisky, especially with our seven-month aged reposado and our 14 month aged añejo. It’s all about re-educating the consumer and we’re hoping to help others pave the way in doing so too. We’re not trying to tell people how to drink their tequila, we’re encouraging them to explore it in different ways they may not have tried before, like in cocktails or putting it on ice so it can be sipped.” With a strong, contemporary brand, UWA stands out from the sea of traditional designs that most tequila companies boast.

LONDON FASHION WEEK FESTIVAL The British Fashion Council (BFC) is delighted to announce that luxury womenswear brand, Mother of Pearl, 2017 winner of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, has been commissioned to design this season’s London Fashion Week Festival limited edition tote bag.

The bag’s design draws inspiration from Dutch florals and the use of darkness and light in the paintings of artists such as Caravaggio and Jan Van Huysum. Mother of Pearl’s brand mantra is ‘Serious fashion, not to be worn too seriously’, so the striped sporty handles are the perfect partnership to the beautiful botanical print. Mother of Pearl is a womenswear luxury brand based in East London. Each collection is a fusion between quality and design, with a focus on print, sportswear inspired detailing and luxe fabrications. Mother of Pearl takes an innovative, and often humorous approach to print and embellishment to strike a balance between easy daywear that can be dressed up for any occasion. Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council said: “Mother of Pearl’s beautiful designs perfectly capture British creativity and the energy of London Fashion Week Festival. It has been great to work with Amy on the tote bags for this season and I look forward to seeing them being used all over London and further afield.” Mother of Pearl presented their first collection at London Fashion Week in AW14 and Creative Director Amy Powney, joined in 2006; four years after the brand was founded by Maia Norman. Mother of Pearl has been shortlisted for the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund in both 2015 and 2016 and in the same year the label was awarded the Walpole Emerging British Luxury Talent prize.

Bring on the vintage! The next big trend is less of a movement, more of a statement: pure, crimson, blood curdling red. Red is undoubtedly the colour of Autumn/Winter 2017. Whether it is an entire outfit, or just a statement piece, red turns heads, and you will be the center of attention. A bold red will suit any and all skin tones, complementing everyone’s personal styles as well as enhancing your inner confidence, allowing you to stride down the street knowing that people are looking at you for all of the right reasons. Not only on the catwalk, but also seen in the recent collaboration of Luis Vuitton and Supreme, the luxury street style collection screams red couture, making a statement that is visible from miles away. The focus on bold patterns, tactile fabrics and a revival of the Seventies are also very obvious in men’s styling for Autumn/Winter 17. Corduroy is back in a big way, especially for tailoring. A full corduroy suit can be mixed with a leather jacket or patterned shirt to give an eclectic and rock and roll style that mixes a contemporary feel with a blast from the past. Similarly, the classic cameltone of the 70s is splattered head to toe on the menswear catwalk, varying in shade, texture and cut. It is the suave way of dressing in an autumnal hue. Roll necks have been back for a while and it appears that they’re here to stay – your neck is about to have the best cold season ever. The roll neck is a way to stay warm whilst looking effortlessly chic in a tight fitted and thin cut under a suit, or in a thick, chunky knit to slip on at the weekend with a pair of the cord trousers to really emphasise the slouchy seventies vibe. Whatever the weather, these key pieces will liven up any Autumn wardrobe and keep you exactly on trend.

ACQUA DI PARMA

THE VOYAGES OF COLONIA The pleasure of travelling, of taking the necessary time to savour the spirit of a place. Like all great travellers, Colonia deeply explores other worlds and traditions. Each new departure is a discovery. A sensory journey in search of the most rare and original essences, of ingredients that tell the story of an atmosphere, a vision of beauty, a way of life. It is upon return from each stop on the voyage that the real adventure starts. To make that rare and precious ingredient one’s own in a spirit of renewal, to imagine brand new compositions where Colonia retains its distinct identity, but is enriched with unexpected facets. The result is a collection of sophisticated and evocative fragrances. Ingredient Collection. A travel diary of aromas, always open to new discoveries and fascinating combinations. Colonia traces its map along the routes of time and space. From its trip to the Middle East, Colonia captures the sensory opulence of Agarwood oil, giving life to the mysterious and sensual notes of Colonia Oud. A fragrance that combines the essence that is a symbol of the rich Arab civilisation of perfumes combined with the entirely Italian freshness of Colonia. Returning to Italy, the pleasure of spending time in antique artisan workshops, where, surrounded by the scent of leather, objects and accessories that express the sense of the Tuscan roots and tradition are created. It is from this intense aroma that Colonia Leather was born. Again, the desire to travel to faraway places, along the Silk Road, where the personality of Colonia joins the refined sensuality of ambergris to create Colonia Ambra. From here, two new Italian stops along the journey, rich in stories to tell. Piedmont, its noble families, a symbolic tree and a precious and vital ingredient which has inspired Colonia Quercia. Then Milan and its most hidden corners. The secret cabinetmaking workshops, the smell of the most precious wood from which Colonia Ebano is inspired. The momentum toward distant horizons returns irresistibly. Through deserts and mountains, Colonia meets the intoxicating intensity of an ancient ingredient which creates Colonia Mirra.


203

COLONIA EBANO

Encounter an ancient art, recognise it by its scent Metropolitan rhythms, speed, lights and sounds. But wandering among the narrow streets of the old quarter, everything becomes more calm and collected. Travelling to Milan one happens to encounter secluded and quiet spaces. Laboratories where for centuries the art of cabinetmaking has been cultivated at its highest levels. You first notice it in the scent of beeswax with which the cabinetmaker caresses the wood until it gleams. In the subtle and penetrating aromas of ebony and other precious woods that are skilfully inlaid with each other. Sensory atmospheres that tell the stories of masterpieces of Italian art and craftsmanship. Travel notes enclosed in Colonia Ebano. Italian cabinetmaking has its absolute geniuses. Born in the Renaissance, it expresses its splendour in the Baroque Age and then in the 1700s. The protagonist is the legendary Giuseppe Maggiolini, and it is not by chance that he is defined as the prince of wood craftsmen, called to work in the major courts of Europe and creator of the furnishings of Villa Reale in Monza. Artisan and artist. Virtuoso craftsman and at the same time ante litteram creative and designer. Every piece he created is one of a kind. Neoclassical lines, essential and with a pictorial sensitivity in composing elaborate and perfect decorations. The Milanese cabinetmakers take up the grand tradition of Maggiolini, as well as his mastery in giving shape to rich and sinuous wooden inlays.

ART X DESIGN Design and Art: two things that are independent of one another and yet also inextricably linked. There is an old fashioned view that, for some unknown reason, design is deemed inferior to art; and yet, the fact is that one is not actually able to thrive sufficiently without the other. The contemporary art world is teaming with artists that are continually creating works of huge artistic and aesthetic value, that actually seem like they could go in a home, and not just a gallery. Due to the implicit relationship between art and design, works of great art are beginning to seem applicable to everyday living and not only fit in, but also enhance the aesthetic and design of the room in which the work is placed. One such artist is Zhuang Hong Yi. Born in 1962 in Sichuan Province, China, Zhuang Hong Yi lives and works between The Netherlands & Beijing. A product of the times, Yi uses traditional Chinese materials to create pieces influenced by his life in 21st century Netherlands, where he has been living for 19 years. There is clear art historical referencing within his works to Western impressionism, hence displaying how heavily Yi is influenced by both his cultural heritage and his life in Europe. Each piece is completed, by hand, with Yi manipulating thousands of rice paper flowers, combining them with layers of acrylic and oil painting, creating large-scale fields of petals on canvas. His works bridge the gap between painting and sculpture, instead creating what seems like a three-dimensional painting. The design, or concept, of Yi’s works again has roots in art history, as they are dependent on the viewer’s gaze. Whereas before, works using one point perspective would have relied on the central viewpoint, Yi encourages the viewer to move around the work and see it from numerous perspectives, experiencing the continually shifting colours from cool to warm or light to dark. Yi’s pieces hence fit perfectly in the everyday household – filled with movement and people able to fully experience the transitioning shades and beauty created through the flowers.

Another artist, Andrea Zvadova, uses watercolours on varied and fascinating materials to create intricate artworks that have a beautifully decorative appearance. Her application of the cyanotype technique on paper, glass, silk and canvas results in stunning hand printed floran cyanotypes reminiscent of summer walks through fields in the countryside. Andrea has also used an oil printing technique from the 1890s, where ink is applied to each print individually, allowing for greater control, but requiring considerable skill and patience. The use of dark blue and white within the works immediately makes reference to Japanese woodblock prints called Ukiyoe’s which were immensely popular in the 20th century for their two dimensionality and decorative nature. The final image is influenced by the artist’s sense of tradition, dexterity and attention to detail, creating a beautifully and carefully designed piece that is completely and utterly unique – it is impossible to make two identical prints. Without a doubt, the most obvious and most successful designer is nature, and that is a fact that artist Ilhwa Kim has taken full advantage of. Ilhwa Kim’s series ‘Seed Universe 天下圖’ is composed of tens of thousands of seed units. Each seed unit has the combination of straight lines and circles, which compose a tiny single universe in their own physical terms. The materials are not given, but created personally for each single universe, instilling within it a sense of unique originality reminiscent of nature’s own designs. Kim dyes each sheet of paper by hand with thousands of different colours, then cuts and rolls the layers of paper to make it rigid. As this is such a laborious process, Kim has an emotional bonding to each of her universes. Kim’s technique is heavily influenced by the highly revered South Korean artist Chun Kwang Young, who creates similar works but on a much larger scale.

MERINO’S MIGRATION


The Merino sheep are tightly woven into the foundling story of Australia – the world’s largest merino wool producer. During the 18th century, the British navy halted merino-wool imports from Saxony and Spain, hence allowing Australia to rise and fill the gap. The original stock had been introduced via the Second Fleet, and crossbred to reach a current population of around 70 million, with some 70% descended from that original foundling flock. Analby Station, is home to the oldest Merino Stud in South Australia. The story of Anlaby pure luxury merino products is one of history, provenance and attention to detail. The products showcase one of the most luxurious, practical and sustainable fibres in the world. Merino wool. The history of Anlaby reads like an historical adventure story. In 1839, one of the most amazing movements of stock in the fledgling colony Australia was undertaken. In a journey of approximately 750 miles (1,210 Kms) and taking six months, Alexander Buchanan, newly arrived from Canada, led a venture to overland a mob of approximately 18,000 sheep from south eastern NSW to Adelaide. This is approximately the distance from London to Prague.


216

Once they left the trade route between Sydney and Melbourne at the Murrumbidgee River, Alexander and his men really were in hostile and unknown territory. Alexander’s diary recounts of how they slept with pistols under their pillows as “there were bush rangers (robbers) about”. At a point now known as Mount Dispersion a principal supporter of the venture, Frederick Dutton took possession of 5,000 sheep and laid the foundation of the Anlaby flock that exists today. Anlaby is the oldest merino stud on mainland Australia. The sheep station flourished and in its heyday covered an area of 160,000 hectares (250 square miles). Frederick was soon the owner of one of the largest flocks in South Australia of 60,000 sheep. The genetics of the flock were honed and improved with the importation of merino rams from Spain throughout the mid-1800s. The current genetic improvement programme continues the process of refining the comfort, softness and fineness of the wool. The first bale of wool from South Australia sold in London came from Anlaby. The best of the old and the new continue at Anlaby. Sheep continue to graze on the rolling hills and to take shelter under the same eucalyptus trees that provided comfort for the original flock. The sheep enjoy pure water, clean country air and abundant naturally cultivated pasture under the expansive Australian sky. The key to providing the highest quality wool is to pay particular attention to the feeding programme and to match nutrition to the life cycle of the sheep and in particular to the cycle of breeding ewes and to the new born lambs.


217

Just like a human mother, a sheep needs additional nutrition while pregnant and while feeding offspring. At Anlaby, ewes are tested during pregnancy and those bearing twins are separated from the main breeding flock so that they can receive additional nutrition during this important time. The attention to detail does not end with caring for the sheep. The Anlaby range of pure luxury merino products is produced in Australia using only wool from the Anlaby sheep. Anlaby woolen products are therefore available only in strictly limited quantities. Only the best of the wool goes into production and once this is exhausted, the production for the year is closed. The result is a range of unique luxury items that will pass down the generations. Each stage of manufacture is personally overseen by one of the owners of Anlaby. Anlaby products exhibit a unique buttery softness. Products that can be worn against the skin. In deference to the natural quality of the wool and to the environment, Anlaby products are not dyed. They showcase the natural colour of this amazing fibre. The baby blankets and bassinette blankets are edged in natural pure silk. The bed throws are finished with either a natural fringe or with an edge of designer fabric, in cotton, silk or linen to complement the contemporary or tradition home. Anlaby wool is again returning to the UK with our exclusive range of throws, scarves and baby blankets. Each limited-edition product embodies a unique piece of Australian history, is beautifully boxed, be-ribboned and with its own certificate of authenticity.
