EDITOR’S NOTE


Hello

A PENCHANT FOR LIVING

N

ow you are reading the brand new relaunched magazine FAIBLE LIVING. Why was the name of this magazine chosen? Because everyone has a certain faible (engl. penchant) for some­t hing. And this magazine is definitely for people who have a faible for beautiful things. For those who are looking for adorable furnitures and fancy living styles. What sets us apart from other living maga­zines? Well, some of the living magazines show furnitures, but no concrete styles. We make specific examples how you can style your home and where to buy the pieces. The autumne has so many colours. How these colours inspired the designers you will see in the theme "Fall in love". Some trends are maybe short-lived, but not in the area of the interiors. Because good design is forever. We show you the new trends on whole twenty-five pages! Of course good design has a price, but it doesn't have to be so expensive. In our shopping special you will find good designs for less than 365 Euro ! Saroeun Dan, Publisher / E ditor

here is no doubt, one of the most soughtafter designers is the Spaniard Jaime Hayón. The designs of the 40-year-old range between art and design and do not seem of this world. That's why design fans love his products and many manufacturers want to work with him. The graduate industrial designer ( he studied in Madrid and Paris) has his own studio (Hayon Studio), but he also works exclusively for other brands like BD Barcelona, Fritz Hansen, Llandro or Parachilna (picture on the right). Hayón received several awards for his works. His big success shows that he is right! hayonstudio.com

AUTUMNE FANTASIES Why fantasies make life more beautiful

O

nce upon a time ... The beginning of a fairytale promises a journey into a fantasy world and awakens memories of childhood. Without fairytales the childhood would be unimaginable. And without fantasies fairytales would be boring and unimaginative. Maybe fantasies do not exist in the real world, but what they inspire us in ourselves is true. Because our emotions and dreams do exist. In the world of science they say "Nothing is impossible as long as you can imagine it". Thus already this one statement ins-

pires us and fires the imagination. Fantasy is also a source of inspiration. The world of design needs a lot of fantasies, art needs a lot of fantasies. In short summary: Creativity needs fantasies. And in the world of design creativity is in great demand. It is not without reason, why the most successful designers are the most creative ones. I am thinking of major names like Tom Dixon, Jaime Hayón, Patricia Urquiola and a few others. These designers und their imaginations make things look great and beautify our homes. That is why fantasies make our life more beautiful. FA I BL E LI V I NG  27

THE MUSE

Not only artists are inspired by their muses, but also designers. Femininity gives design softness and a touch of sensuality. Salvador Dalí knew how to provoke and immortalized his muse in the "Mae West lips sofa" in 1937. Today's designers love also to play with the female shapes and translate them into the interiors.

usic has existed for as long as humans have been sapient and will continue to be provided in the future. But the industry has been experiencing significant changes because of new technologies. Since some time the trend is towards clearly to digital. The physical CD is dying. But let us be honest: I never was a fan of physical CDs. They take much space and get scratched. For this reasons I give thanks to the new technologies like Spotify and company. In combination with good music and the latest systems like the fantastic SONOS, music sounds better than ever !

THE SUNSHINE HOTEL

To be able to keep up with competitors, hotels rely on big designers. And with the Italian designer Paola Navone they can't go wrong. The Metropolitan by COMO Hotel in Miami appre­c iates her special flair for relaxted looking interiors and hired her to design the whole hotel. comohotels.com/ metropolitanmiamibeach FA I BL E LI V I NG  101

LAND OF DREAMS

The photographs of the Korean photo­ grapher JeeYoung Lee are real works of art. Just for the photos his studio was developed in beautiful and different settings. The reconstruction works took weeks or even months. The idea was to photograph the surreal in reality. Photo retouching is not done. opiomgallery.com

TRAVEL INSPIRATIONS

COLOURED WORLD THIS IS LOMBOK

It does not always have to be Bali. There are so many more beautiful islands in Indonesia. Many of them are underestimated. For example Lombok. Bali's sister island is less touristic, but all the more relaxed. Proof is this photo from the Indonesian photographer Tan Rahardian, that shows three local women who walk along the beach and dressed in colourful sarongs. 102  FA I BL E LI V I NG


THE SOCIAL POOL

Editor / Text: Sardan  Photos: JeeYoung Lee, Tan Rahardian/Indonesia Tourist Information Centre/dpa/tmn, Alfredo Barsuglia, Benjamin “BigAddict” Roudet

In the middle of nowhere there is an isolated eleven-by-five-feet wide pool. The installation in the Southern Cali­ fornia desert from the artist Alfredo Barsuglia is an oasis of tranquility for our stressful world. It translates the desire for seclusion and individual enjoyment. Far away from the ever-communication and the consumer society. social-pool.com

DON'T PANIC!

Every year artists have the chance to design a room of the hotel Au Vieux Panier in Marseille, France. The craziest ideas have priority. Each room is unique and amazing. Like this "Panic Room" from TILT, an internationally recognized french graffiti artist. Half of the room is completely covered with his hand sprayed graffiti. The other half is empty like a blank canvas. auvieuxpanier.com

One of the most exciting and biggest cities (with a population of around fifteen and a half million) in the southern America is doubtless Buenos Aires, the Argentine capital city. Because of its European influence in culture and architecture Buenos Aires is also called "Paris of the south". The city provides many opportunities like museums, theatre, sport or Tango (Tango's birthplace is in Argentina). The hotel NH City & Tower offers a wonderful view over the city (picture on the right). nh-hotels.com 104  FA I BL E LI V I NG

ometimes you may feel a yearning for a simple life. There are some peoples of the world who live their life this way. By the Lake Titicaca in the locality of Puno in Peru the Uru people live on what the nature Produces and only own the things they really need. They may have no other choice, but they are proud of their culture and live in happiness. Their homes are made of local sedges and built on moveable selfmade islands. This tradition is based on their ancestors, who protected themselves against enemies by moving the islands away. Untill today the Uru people would never live on the mainland. The Uru people are open and friendly and welcome tourists very warmly. By guiding the visitors and Selling their handicrafts they can earn a bit of money for the livelihood.

INTO THE WILD Back to nature! The trend to the forest and jungle reached also the interiors of the world's hotels. Even in a pulsing metropolis like Berlin you can feel like in a dense jungle. But there are also hotels in a real wild jungle for special experiences ...

BIKINI BOTTOM To feel like "into

the wild" you don't have to go in a jungle – or rather in a real one. The name "urban jungle" says it: a big city is a jungle. In the 25 hours hotel Bikini in the German capital city Berlin you can feel like in the wildernes, because the whole hotel is designed in a "wild" look. It's like a jungle in the jungle! 25hours-hotels.com

IN THE ANGOPHORA FOREST

Apart from eucalyptus trees there are a special type of trees in Australia: the angophora. Surrounded by many ancient angophoras there is a very pretty beach house named "The Pretty Beach House". A private guesthouse in a magical setting, just 100 kilometres or 90 minutes drive north of Sydney. prettybeachhouse.com.au 108  FA I BL E LI V I NG


JUNGLE BOOK Do you have always wanted to know how it feels like to live in a little village in the jungle ? Between palm trees and bamboo? This experience you can have in a resort named Bambu Indah in Ubud on the paradise island Bali. Of course the resort is equipped with all the conveniences for a relaxing stay. You live in straw huts and some of them have glass floors with a wonderful view of the water and colourful Koi fish. bambuindah.com

hequered in black and white can be so stylish and luxurious looking. The boutique hotel "The Club Hotel" is located at the Ann Siang Road, Singapore’s most fashionable districts. The style of this hotel begins already with the house facade. The house is a stately 1900’s heritage building and is completely white. Even though the interior is in black and white, the hotel is full of fantasies an creativity. For example in the lobby there are sculptural clouds at the ceiling. The idea was to play with the past of Singapore as a former colonial territory. theclub.com.sg
