SUPER-FAST WiFi THAT’S AS EASY AS SWITCHING ON A LIGHT “The light in your ceiling will be the iPhone of the future,” Professor Harald Haas (right), chief science officer at pureLiFi, a German physicist, first proposed the revolutionary idea of using LED lights as WiFi transmitters four years ago and now this realty is set to come true

I

NSTEAD of using traditional radio frequencies, the potentially revolutionary service uses a light source, a LiFi-enabled bulb with a special chip in it and a photo detector to create an Internet connection that its creator says could deliver download speeds 10 times faster than current WiFi. Currently, scientists have attained speeds of up to 224GB per second using lifi. This means that 18 movies can be downloaded in the blink of an eye. This new technology is now progressing with trials, and has achieved speeds of up to 1GB per second - which is a 100 times faster than traditional wifi. But

there is much more to the lifi. Here’s what you need to know about this exciting new technology:

Porada: new furniture collection ‘from the love of wood’

LUXURY Italian furniture brand Porada was established in 1948 by Luigi Allievi with the intention of expanding its simple collection of chairs. Today the company collaborates with world renowned designers to create exquisitely made and inspirational contemporary furniture. Porada’s mantra is “everything is born from the love of the wood” and their furniture is made by craftsmen who, in their own words, “know how to turn a log into a piece of artwork”. Working with Go Modern who represent a mix of wellknown brands such as Bonaldo, Jesse, Manutti and Tribu, alongside luxury names including Lema, Smania and Alivar, plus smaller, specialist companies such as Tonelli Design, Mogg and Cierre, the latest collection includes:

MASKARA DRESSING TABLE

The Maskara dressing table. Designed by Emmanuel Gallina is made from solid Frassino ash with an elegant marble top in either dark brown Emperador or white Calacatta marble, and a central drawer. The carved solid ash frame can be left natural, stained or matt lacquered in a range of colours. From £2,760 to have its first products to market by the end of 2016.

1) Lifi is not transmitted through conventional data streams. It is transmitted through LED lights which aids its seed. Thousands of data streams are used simultaneously to transmit information.

3) Lifi is more secure than wifi. Data transmitted over wifi is prone to hacking as it has a wider reach. However, the reach of lifi is limited as for a simple reason that light cannot penetrate walls. This limited reach makes it more secure.

2) Two companies are vying to be the first to introduce this new technology. Velmenni a new start-up company is aiming to reach consumers with its Jungru product within the next 3-4 years, And PureLiFi expects

4) Interestingly, lifi does not interfere with radio signals, unlike wifi. It works on Visible Light communication (VLC) which works by switching on and off LED bulbs within nanoseconds - invisible to the human eye.

HILTON ROOM DIVIDER

The Hilton room divider. Designed by Tarcisio Colzani and made from interlocking sections of solid canaletta walnut. The contemporary screen creates a stunning room divider, which can be used to stylishly partition a section of room space. For further information visit: www.gomodern.co.uk

Who said you had to go out for Valentine’s Day? A small footprint makes these chairs perfect for tight places, they are also ideal to create a comfy reading nook in a bay window.

An Interior Lighting Collection Inspired by Nature - Made in England Temple & Ivy’s interior lighting collection combines traditional sculpture with modern materials and the rich textures and flamboyance of the natural world. Their first collection is a range of bird leg lamp bases that have been, almost, brought to life by the sculptor as each set of legs is so detailed and life-like. The collection features Avocets, Flamingos, African Jacana, African Rail, Runner Ducks, Ostrich and Purple Gallinule. Temple & Ivy founders and business partners, Nicky Boulton and Susan Neville, spent several months in Kenya and Zimbabwe photographing and tracking birds to launch their first lighting range. Working with sculptor Neil R Mason, a winner of several wildlife sculpture awards, they ensure that the legs are as life-like as possible. Using Neil’s talent for capturing the movement of a bird and the foundry’s expertise interpreting it, the legs have the appearance of a bird freely walking, not grounded by a base. Birds’ feet are, after all, perfectly balanced for their environment. Temple & Ivy lamps are perfectly suited for theirs – a variety of interior spaces, a dramatic finishing touch.

a Maasai co-operative in Africa who create all the beaded designs exclusively for them.

Why Bird Feet?

Nicky & Susan were not only inspired by the birds they discovered on their African travels but also by historical design. They were drawn in particular to the Georgians, who used feet on all kinds of household furniture and to the Surrealists, who explored the use of legs and feet on tables and chairs. Temple & Ivy cleverly bring both classic and contemporary styles together and lighting is just the start. For more information visit: www. templeandivy.com

The Shades

No lamp is complete without a fabulous shade and attention to detail has ensured a comprehensive and stunning range to complement the legs and finishes. Many of the shades are exquisitely feathered, others are a Patina Copper and some feature Maasai beads. Nicky and Susan are working with

A GREATER SENSE OF WARMTH Lladró’s Belle de Nuit collection is a new line of ceiling, tabletop and wall lamps made in porcelain and come in various formats and colours in tune with happening trends in interiors and home décor. The concept for this new collection is based on the classic crystal chandelier, updating it not only in terms of the material used, but also changing the expressive language. The sensation Lladró lamps transmit in comparison with those made in other materials is the greater sense of warmth. The most striking feature of the Belle de Nuit collection is the application of the original Lladró palette of colours.

ENTING out your property over Christmas is a popular way for homeowners to generate some off-peak income when the property is empty. However, don’t forget if you’re renting out your property over Christmas it’s more important than ever to dress it in the right way to help guests feel the Christmas spirit and be delighted to be spending this holiday away from home. Nordica Home Styling have put together some top tips for dressing your property for Christmas bookings – 1. Create a great first impression Make sure that when people come through the door you have some festive touches easy to see so you really set the scene. How about a Christmas wreath on the door, and a pot of poinsettias on the hall table? 2. Concentrate your efforts on the living room To cut down on costs and unnecessary effort, focus your attention on the main living spaces for the Christmas cheer. You don’t need to decorate the outside of the house at all, as this can look cheap and cost a lot of money in lights and electricity. Creating a cozy, welcoming, festive living and dining area is enough. 3. Invest in a great, fake tree The centre piece of any Christmas scene must be the tree and so it’s important to get a good tree. But don’t worry about getting a real one which will make loads of mess, a good artificial tree of a suitable size for your property is all you need. 4. Choose a simple, stylish colour palette For maximum style stick to a simple colour-scheme for decorations choosing two or three key colours, for example silver and white work very well against white walls and marble floors. These colours can be applied to lights, decorations, table cloths and napkins and give a strong design feel to the property and avoid it looking garish. 5. Accentuate your fireplace A fireplace is a must for Christmas rentals and should be prepared and styled correctly. Set the fire place with logs so it looks great and is ready to light straight away. Then dress the mantelpiece with pine cones or Christmas candles. If your guests have kids, a really lovely touch is to hang stockings for each child on the mantelpiece and add a few simple presents into them for when they arrive. Everyone will love it and then the stockings can be used by the parents for Christmas Day too. If you’re renting your property for Christmas holiday guests but aren’t able to dress the property yourself, Nordica Home Styling can take care of it all. Their experienced property stylists will source gorgeous Christmas decorations and make the house look a million dollars. For more information and inspiration visit www.marbellapropertystyling.com
