Studio HENK launches first outdoor furniture collection: Elements outdoor

Design Studio HENK presents Elements: the first outdoor collection of the Dutch interior brand. Studio HENK also brings its characteristic minimalist designs outside through a series of stylish wooden outdoor furniture.   The new Elements collection for outdoors consists of a dining table, dining bench and coffee table. The furniture is made from the best-known renewable, biobased raw material: wood. There is a choice of a light version, made from Accoya wood, and a version with a darker color, made from Iroko. Both types of wood are FSC certified, which ensures that forests are protected for current and future generations. Accoya is an acetylated wood type; this very environmentally friendly treatment ensures a slow aging and a lifespan of about 50 years (the highest durability class 1). Accoya is fully recyclable and has Cradle-to-cradle Gold certification. Iroko is also aging, and also has a long lifespan of about 25 years (durability class 1-2).     Design follows demand for sustainability:   Characteristic of the collection are the slats that together form a "slatted" surface, which gives the furniture a minimalist, timeless and stylish appearance. “The starting point for the design of the outdoor furniture was mainly sustainability, the wish that our outdoor furniture, like all Studio HENK products, can last a long time,” says creative director Xander Albers. “The design question was: 'How can we use what is necessary - the slats, or the' slatted 'elements - as an aesthetically powerful and image-defining element? breathe and it stays beautiful longer. ”   A special detail is that the dining table and the sofa can be put together by the customer. The dining table and dining bench are available in different sizes and finishes. The dining table is available in lengths from 160 to 300 cm. The sofa is also available in different lengths, from 140 to 260cm. The table and bench are also available with three steel outdoor frames; the timeless Butterfly, New Classic and Slim X-Type. Comfort has also been thought of - with a matching seat cushion with a durable character; Sunbrella Heritage upholstery, made with 50% recycled Sunbrella Acrylic.     Elements coffee table - also for indoors:   As part of the Elements collection, Studio HENK is launching, in addition to the outdoor coffee table, the Elements coffee table for indoor use, which is available in FSC certified oak wood in various finishes. The Elements collection will be available from 8 May 2021 in Studio HENK's flagship stores in Amsterdam and Antwerp, and will soon also be available online and through the Studio HENK sales points.

The beautiful Hôtel CASAROSE

The beautiful Hôtel CASAROSE

Travel You may think that you have seen everything on the French Riviera. After all, it is one of the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the world and quite rightly the stu of legend. With palaces, charming inns, family-owned bed and breakfasts, with or without stars. CASAROSE, which is simply brimming with charm, innovations and positive energy, was conceived in line with the new trend for feel-good hotels, and combines the best of a seaside resort, a design boutique hotel and a place to live (and work)—where guests can unwind, where companies can hold their meetings, and with a trendy bar/lounge and restaurant. It also showcases local art and craftsmanship that re ects current tastes. Jean-Christophe Larose, CEO of Groupe Cardinal, wanted to create something a bit di erent, where families can unwind and play sports but also where business owners can meet with their clients. Here it’s all about the level of service, goodwill and friendliness.   There is something joyful about the CASAROSE, which loosely draws on the casual elegance of the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel on LA’s Sunset Boulevard for inspiration. Or North Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs in the 1960s perhaps, where guests lounged around the blue lagoon pool after a game of golf or tennis. Come evening, drinks would be served with music playing in the background. Over half a century later, this heady casual chic vibe still works—albeit that the vintage dream has been slightly updated.   The idea behind the CASAROSE is to blend this vintage California style with the current norms of the French hotel industry, taking inspiration from the French Riviera. Luxury? Everything has been thought of in this 21st-century four-star hotel. Here you’ll only nd unpretentious, chic and cool luxury, both inside and out. CASAROSE has all the intimacy of a boutique hotel, with just 56 rooms and suites, all with private terraces. The hotel has 32 rooms (24 m2) and 8 family rooms with an extra bed as well as 6 junior suites (33 m2) and 10 suites (36 m2). With its bar/lounge and restaurant, putting local products in the spotlight, the hotel aims to become a go-to place in the region.   Hôtel CASAROSE is located in Mandelieu-la-Napoule, which is famous for its leisure activities and natural attractions. Located on the premises of the old Golf Park Hotel, the hotel is set in a lovely landscape garden, next to the famous Golf Old Course of Cannes-Mandelieu—the region's most picturesque golf course. Just 25 minutes from Nice-Côte-d’Azur Airport, the hotel is also located on the banks of the Siagne, a wide, navigable river that ows past the garden and into the Mediterranean. The jetty will be completed in 2022. The beaches of Cannes and Mandelieu-La Napoule are just 400 metres up the road. But best of all, the region enjoys sunshine 300 days a year!   The CASAROSE team supports the local economy, sourcing directly from the region's shermen, vegetable growers, orists, and olive oil and wine producers. The hotel also intends to showcase regional talent, making the most of the thriving art scene. We will be happy to point guests in the direction of all the best sights and attractions: from Théoule and its mythical red rock inlets to the stunning golf courses, art galleries and many other experiences that are just waiting to be discovered. Guests can also rent bicycles and electric cars to get around more easily.   Explore more about the amazing hotel here: www.hotelcasarose.fr You may think that you have seen everything on the French Riviera.

Louis Vuitton opens Louis Vuitton Ginza Namiki, Tokyo

Architecture With great anticipation, Louis Vuitton announces the arrival of Louis Vuitton Ginza Namiki in Tokyo’s Ginza district. The store presents an ambitious transformation of an existing location. Reimagined as an aesthetic dialogue between virtuoso architects, Jun Aoki and Peter Marino, an entirely new, naturalistic tower rises, inspiring wonder – both outside and within.     From the same corner siting, occupied by LouisVuitton since 1981, the building’s highly modern appearance interprets the reflections of water as a material phenomenon. Poetic yet playful; shimmering and rhythmic. Once a peninsula extending in Tokyo bay, this evocation of water is expressed throughout as smooth, undulating surfaces – from the glass façade that transmits shifting colour to the feature staircase and fixtures. Spanning four floors, the retail offering is complemented by a permanent pop-in space for seasonal animations of new arrivals and an upper level dedicated to private salons. The store experience culminates in Le Café V, where celebrated chef Yosuke Suga collaborates for the second time with the House, additionally developing flavours for Le Chocolat V, the first-ever line of Louis Vuitton chocolates that will make their world debut here at the end of April.

Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam

Conservatorium Hotel Amsterdam

Travel The three founding hotels of The Set are located in the cultural heart of their vibrant cities. They have for decades a racted people who drive change and creativity and are places where established and emerging ideas come together to shape the future. Matching the spirit and pace of contemporary life, The Set hotels are explicitly designed to enable new discoveries and to capture the hearts and minds of guests in the process. These are places people love, want to return to and to tell others about. Simply put, they are the modern grand hotels of our time.     Over 100 years ago, architect Daniel Knuttel turned to a mix of neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau principles to visually celebrate the importance of the Conservatorium building. Today, Italian architect Piero Lissoni uses a contemporary design language to complement and continue this narrative. Inside and out, a strong design aesthetic is fundamental to the Conservatorium. It actually tells its story. The building’s original function as a savings bank is apparent in the playful details so embraced by the Art Nouveau movement. There are stone pigs carved into the staircase to symbolise piggy banks; spider webs on the tiles in the shopping arcade allude to spiders trapping ies to consume later; and the tiles also portray bees, which, metaphorically, save stocks of honey for the wintertime. These elements demonstrate an attention to design detail that remains today. Italian architect and design maestro Piero Lissoni was responsible for evolving this rich design history into a contemporary space. The way he merged the 19th century edi ce by encasing its interior courtyard in glass demonstrates a seamless, innate understanding of old and new, public and private. Lissoni’s style is rich, muted and stylishly pared-back. While his vision contrasts to the decorative nature of the original 19th century edice, it brings a new mood – and a new function – to this historic landmark building.     The Conservatorium regularly collaborates with the Conservatorium van Amsterdam music school and together they started the Expression of Art Award series. Each year, students from the jazz department are invited to play at the hotel. A jury is present to announce the winner, who is awarded with a monetary fund to encourage them in their musical career. The hotel’s cultural commitment goes beyond music. It has an ever-changing roster of contemporary artists displaying their work in the hotel lobby. These artists range from emerging talent to globally established names such as Banksy and Scholten & Baijings. Local artists also decorate the Artist in Residence Suites upstairs with works. These pieces are rotated frequently and are shown alongside publications giving details. They are accompanied by a series of lectures and workshops. The permanent art collection in the hotel has been curated by architect Piero Lissoni, and includes everything from reproductions of historic Dutch masterpieces to brand new commissions inspired by the Conservatorium’s cultural and musical history.   The Conservatorium has an illustrious, century-long past where society has always gathered together. This is especially apparent today in its elegant bar and restaurants. The restaurant Taiko rede nes contemporary Asian cuisine with authentic dishes made of local, seasonal products. Taiko takes its name from the Japanese for ‘drum’, and is located in the percussion room of the old music school. For something more casual, there is the Brasserie where platters full of healthy dishes greet customers as they arrive and afternoon tea is served every day. Lastly, the Tunes Bar serves cocktails, which are best enjoyed during the weekend when the in-house DJ brings the room alive.   The Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre marries innovative Western practices with ancient Eastern traditions. It boasts seven treatment rooms, including a double treatment suite, and o ers some of the nest signature spa treatments in Amsterdam. There is a private Hammam for purifying scrubs and massages. Akasha also features Amsterdam’s only Watsu pool for tailored hydro-treatments and guided meditation, as well as a large gym featuring Life Fitness equipment and private studios for yoga, pilates and more.     Located on Museumplein – Amsterdam’s historic cultural hub – the Conservatorium is surrounded by legendary artworks, ne examples of the applied arts and classical and jazz music in a set of world-famous institutions. Paintings by the Netherland’s greatest master can be found at the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum has a team of historic Dutch masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Frans Hals. Contemporary art is shown close by at the Stedelijk Museum and Moco Museum and opposite is the Concertgebouw, which has one of Europe’s best music programmes.
