Bang & Olufsen Introduces the Golden Collection

Design Bang & Olufsen today announced the Golden Collection – a luxurious new colourway comprised of the Danish audio company’s most popular and enduring products.    The Golden Collection celebrates memories created with family and friends as we all spend more time home this year. From the modern design icon Beoplay A9 home speaker to the Danish audio company’s flagship active loudspeaker Beolab 90, the products in the collection are reimagined in colours and materials associated with warmth and lasting value: golden-hued aluminium, earth-toned textile, genuine lambskin, solid oak and Carrara marble.    “We love that our customers build emotional connections to Bang & Olufsen products, much like they do with a well-loved piece of furniture. Those connections become lasting memories. So not only does the Golden Collection celebrate our commitment to craftsmanship and longevity in design, it also celebrates our 95-year history of crafting memories together with our customers”, says Bang & Olufsen VP of Design Gavin Ivester.   The Golden Collection is comprised of nine products, each of which has become a staple of Bang & Olufsen’s product portfolio:   Beosound Balance (2500 EUR)features golden-hued aluminium detailing, white knitted textile, and an elegant Carrera marble base – marking the first time that Bang & Olufsen has used Carrara marble. The organic nature of the marble means that no two speakers are identical, adding an extra layer of exclusivity to an already stunning speaker. Beoplay A9 (2750 EUR), a wireless speaker regarded as a piece of furniture by designers, features a gold tone aluminium ring, light oak legs and a sand-coloured fabric cover produced by Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat. Beosound 2 (2000 EUR), known for its unique conical shape and powerful 360-degree dispersion of sound, features a double anodized gold tone aluminium body, produced at Bang & Olufsen’s aluminium factory in Struer, Demark.  Beovision Harmony (from 19500 EUR), Bang & Olufsen’s premium TV experience known for its magical unfolding movement, features a new golden-hued aluminium sound centre, a matching floor stand, and a hand-crafted speaker cover made of aluminium and light oak veneer. Beovision Harmony comes with a Beoremote One remote control, made out of a single piece of gold tone aluminium.  Bang & Olufsen’s state-of-the-art active loudspeakers, Beolab 50 (from 30000 EUR) and Beolab 90 (from 75000 EUR), feature golden hued aluminium detailing, and warm sand-coloured textile, and hand-crafted light oak accents.  Customers can also take the Golden Collection to go with the award-winning Beosound A1 2nd Generation (250 EUR), which features a pearl-blasted golden-hued aluminium grill, a genuine leather strap and an aluminium tag displaying the Bang & Olufsen logo.  For personal listening experiences, consumers can enjoy Beoplay H95 (800 EUR), the brand’s flagship headphones, or Beoplay E8 3rd generation (350 EUR), its best-selling true wireless earphones in the luxurious new colourway. Beoplay H95 features sand-coloured lambskin earcups and golden aluminium user interface. Beoplay E8 comes in a sand-coloured leather wrapped wireless charging case and feature elegant golden-hued aluminium detailing.    Pricing and availability: The Golden Collection will be available to purchase on www.bang-olufsen.com, in Bang & Olufsen and select third party retailers from November 17, 2020 - Bang & Olufsen’s official 95thbirthday.

Daily Paper Introduces Its First Scent ‘Modern Nomads’ Created In Collaboration with Zenology

Lifestyle For their first-ever scent –– a home fragrance –– Daily Paper chose to collaborate with Amsterdam-based fragrance driven lifestyle brand Zenology. With their origins in the hotel industry, Zenology helps you bring the luxury hotel experience into your home through sensual fragrances that are crafted specifically to give an immersive olfactive experience. Daily Paper’s three Founders worked closely with Zenology to create a scent that captured and recreated the variety of colors, textures, and sensory landscapes of their countries of origin, evoking powerful memories of their experiences traveling back to the motherland.   ‘Scent is such a key part of the whole travel experience for me. I've known the brand Zenology for a while –– we’ve used their Ambiance Trigger in the scent Camellia Sinensis in our own Flagship stores and Headquarters. After I met Jeroen Oude Sogtoen (Zenology’s Founder and Creative Director), I knew that we needed to do our own fragrance one day, one that would capture the DNA of Daily Paper and felt personal to our individual heritages and identities. When we started working on this collaboration, we asked ourselves ‘what would Daily Paper smell like if it was a scent’? And now we have our answer.    –– Abderrahmane Trabsini, Co-Founder of Daily Paper.     The scent which comes wrapped in Paper Accord comes in two sizes –– a travel-friendly 70 ml (2.37 fl.oz.) bottle that’s small enough for your hand luggage liquids, and a larger 300 ml (10.14 fl.oz.) version for the home – and are priced at €20 ($25) and €49 ($65) respectfully. The Daily Paper x Zenology Fragrance launches on November 6, 2020, at 12 PM CET (Central European Time) and will be available at both Daily Paper and Zenology web stores and retail spaces as a permanent product, alongside a curated selection of our closest retailers.

Illy caffè is proud to present the new illy Art Collection

Illy caffè is proud to present the new illy Art Collection

Design Illy caffè is proud to present the new illy Art Collection featuring the work of Stefan Sagmeister, celebrated designer who used the blank canvas of the iconic illy espresso cup to express a deliberately disruptive concept: “Now = Better”.   The slogan, that in this delicate historical moment might seem out of tune, is in fact quite the contrary: the artist’s acute reflection right now becomes a strong symbol and message of renewed hope for the future. What Sagmeister seeks to suggest is to take some time, even during a coffee break, to try to change our vision of the world looking at it from a long-term perspective.      In the new, colorful illy Art Collection the minimalist decorations of the saucer, made of precious minerals, are mirrored on the titanium surface of the cup. In a play on perspective, the outline of a graph creeps up the side demonstrating curves in growth, objective data of a progressive improvement over a long period. This intriguing representation of information coupled with a prudent vision allows the “better data” – which we might otherwise have neglected thanks to the distractions of everyday media noise – to become immediately evident.   Using his own personal, ironic, and direct dialect, Sagmeister casts interesting reflections on time insinuating that perhaps we do not notice it but living conditions have improved compared, for example, to the last century.The impression we get from the pressing information that surrounds us reflects a world out of control, always on the edge of the abyss. But if we look at it from a long-term perspective, many aspects that concern humanity have in fact improved: life has lengthened, deaths from wars and natural disasters have decreased, the majority of people now live in a democratic regime. About 200 years ago, 9 out of 10 people did not know how to read or write; today the ratio has decreased to about 1 out of 10.    “The illy Art Collection project by Stefan Sagmeister has thrilled us from the start – explains Massimiliano Pogliani, CEO of illycaffè – it is exactly what one expects from a brilliant ‘cultural agitator’ such as himself. It reminds us that we must continue to maintain a positive approach towards humanity which, despite everything, continues to progress even when difficulty strikes like whatwe areexperiencingnow. This message is nourished in small daily gestures like drinking a coffee which, with illy, becomes a moment of inspiration, a stimulus to find happiness in everyday life, an invitation to live each minute to the fullest.”     The Stefan Sagmeister collection is available beginning in November in the following formats:    2 espresso cups at the suggested price of 48 € 2 cappuccino cups at the suggested price of 58 € 4 espresso cups at the suggested price of 88 € 4 cappuccino cups at the suggested price of 108 €   illy Art Collection:   The illy Art Collection came to life in 1992, an idea of Francesco Illy: they are signature cups numbered and signed, to date, by over 100 internationally renowned artists. Great masters such asMarina Abramovic, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Louis Bourgeois, Mark Quinn… among several other young creative talents.     An object of everyday life, the Matteo Thun-designed cup thus becomes a blank canvas inspiring the protagonists of contemporary art, turning the gesture of drinking an espresso into an experience that involves the senses and the mind.  Illy caffè is proud to present the new illy Art Collection featuring the work of Stefan Sagmeister, celebrated designer who used the blank canvas of the iconic illy espresso cup to express a deliberately disruptive concept: “Now = Better”.   The slogan, that in this delicate historical moment might seem out of tune, is in fact quite the contrary: the artist’s acute reflection right now becomes a strong symbol and message of renewed hope for the future.

LACOSTE X NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

LACOSTE X NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

Fashion Lacoste and National Geographic unite for a collaboration that celebrates the beauty of the natural world.   Lacoste is proud to work with National Geographic on a capsule collection that combines Lacoste’s timelesssilhouettes and celebrated ts with the rich, majestic prints and forms of the animal kingdom. It is acelebration of this Earth and all its wonder; and a call to action to remind of the importance of conservation. The central inspiration for this exclusive range ofmenswear, womenswear and childrenswear comes from the ambitious National Geographic Photo Ark project. Ledby award-winning photographer and National GeographicFellow Joel Sartore, the Photo Ark is a long-term effort to document every species living in the world’s zoos, aquariums, and wildlife sanctuaries. The project, and in turn this new collaboration, aims to celebrate the diversityand splendour of the animal kingdom. To craft this collection, Lacoste meticulously combed Sartore’s existing archive of over 10,500 species, nally deciding to spotlight four key animals, chosen for theirvibrant stories and exceptional beauty; the Grévy’s Zebra(Equus grevyi), the Green and Black Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates auratus), the Halloween Pennant Dragon y(Celithemis eponina) and the Jaguar (Panthera onca).Watch as the croc goes stripey like the zebra, or speckled like the dart frog.   Across the collection, the dazzling coats and scales of thesefour species are interpreted as graphics and prints. Wearerscan adopt the spots of the Jaguar, or wrap themselves in the mesmerising wing of the Dragon y, with its hypnotic,delicate cross-connecting lines. Education is paramount – every garment within the collection comes with a special hangtag detailing information about each species. Did you know that most Poisonous Dart Frogs aren’t poisonousat all? Or that the Halloween Pennant Dragon y gets itsspooky name from its orange wings? Or that the spots ofthe Jaguar are called rosettes, and that while Leopards have these too, only the Jaguar has spots inside its spots? Naturally, all the materials within this collection, from the recycled polyester of the bags to the organic cotton of the polos and the natural rubber outsoles on footwear, are eco-responsible: all have been certied sustainable and recycled.   In keeping with its focus on celebrating the diversity of the natural world, this collection is broad and encompasses various categories, from tops and sweaters through to sunglasses, trainers, bags and underwear. Classic t-shirtsin red and navy come with customised printed croc motifs.A polo, available in two separate ts for men and women, comes entirely covered in bold Jaguar, Zebra and Frog prints. So too do bags; an elegant, roomy tote comes with rosettes, while a classic backpack, available in three prints, is idealfor those on the go. Nodding to the way animals transformand camou age, the padded jacket, available in Dragon y and Frog prints, is reversible, changing effortlessly fromenergetic animal print to classic navy. Sunglasses boastplayful printed frames, while boxers come decorated with a splattering of crocs, each customised to recall one of the collection’s four hero animals. A special trainer, the Gagnant, a twist on the classic René shoe, comes with a Zebra-printedcroc motif on the outer and an eye-catching Zebra striped lining and insole. For children, society’s instinctive animal lovers, there is a special sweatshirt with a customised giant crocodile in Zebrastripes or Jaguar spots. This is a collection for customers with a keen eye forobservation. Look closely, and you’ll spot many clever yellowdetails that celebrate the famous design of the NationalGeographic magazine. On the necklines of polos and sweaters, a bold yellow stripe recalls the magazine’s cheerful borders. Toggles on jackets are also rendered in bold yellow, while allfastenings are branded. Once released, the Lacoste x National Geographic collection will bring to life the beauty of the jungle, forest, grasslands and waters, reminding many of the importance of the animalkingdom. This ambitious colla is a celebration of all that is important and magical in nature; and a tribute to the breath-taking creativity found across species, and across our planet.   The Lacoste x National Geographic collection will be available from November 11th 2020 in Lacoste’s e-shop and in physical stores and wholesalers.

A NEW CARTIER COLLECTION OF OBJECTS THAT SUBTLY ENTER INTO EVERYDAY LIFE

A NEW CARTIER COLLECTION OF OBJECTS THAT SUBTLY ENTER INTO EVERYDAY LIFE

Jewelry To treat yourself or give as a gift, for today or for the future. Stylish objects with that extra something to bring beauty into your life. For ourselves, for mothers, for babies, to inspire, to say thank you, to mark a special occasion, for supporting you, for being in your life, to surprise or show your love...   As simple and intriguing as they are, from music boxes to writing papers, they form part of a long established tradition. Since 1880, Cartier was interested in everyday objects, from the earliest fragrance bottles to powder compacts, from inkwells to stationery presented in its own dedicated exhibition at Cartier New York. Through decoration, writing and travel, Cartier explores everyday life, like it explores the cultures of the world. By the 1930s, shortly after the creation of the S for Silver department – intended for the creation of luxury gifts and useful objects such as lighters, pocket watches and belts – Louis Cartier, the founder’s grandson, highlighted the importance he attached to accessories in an interview with the press:  “In fact, we do not only produce luxury jewellery. I would say, monsieur, that jewellery like ours is as capable of adorning a woman’s shoulders with a dazzling necklace as it is of filling her handbag with a powder compact, a mirror,  a small comb and even business cards, all stamped with the same seal of originality and art.” Louis Cartier.   A notebook and pencil for writing, a rattle for the baby, a game of solitaire to play, a vase for decoration... all these objects respond to the desire to bring joy to yourself and others. Four collections around the theme of decoration, writing, childhood and games to bring beauty into your life. They start with the selection of precious and irresistible materials. Metal, porcelain, leather, paper, cashmere: choices influenced by criteria of elegance and durability. Four collections of objects, from practical to playful, delicate to portable, for young and for old, all linked by their emblematic codes: panther, Double C, menagerie... Maison signatures echoing the history and universe of Cartier. To treat yourself or give as a gift, for today or for the future.

Filling Pieces presents AW20 Editorial ‘Au Revoir’, shot in Morocco by Miftha Bahardeen

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: BREITLING’S CHRONOMAT FOR WOMEN

Watches Lights, camera, double debut: we’re thrilled to present Breitling’s new Spotlight Squad as we launch our line of Chronomat 36 and 32 watches – for women of purpose, action, and style.     “Our inspiration for this new collection is the Breitling woman herself, as represented in our #SQUADONAMISSION campaign: a woman of purpose, action, and style who’s at the top of her game,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.     Some people have mastered the art of not only shining in the spotlight, but also shining their light on others and inspiring change in the world. Three of them are on our Spotlight Squad: Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland, and Yao Chen. These extraordinary entertainers are at the top of their game, and have shattered the stereo­ types clinging to their gender and respective fields. Originally from South Africa, Oscar­winner Charlize Theron has proven her versatility in numerous roles and genres. In 2004, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress after playing a serial killer in Monster. In 2019, she starred in and co­produced the dramaBombshell, for which she was nominated for another Academy Award. In 2007, dancer Misty Copeland was only the second African­American woman to be promoted to soloist with American Ballet Theatre (ABT); in 2015, she was the first African­American woman to become a princi­ pal dancer. That year, Time magazine named her one of the world’s 100 most influential people. Chinese TV and film actress Yao Chen has won many awards, including the Audience Choice category of China’s Golden Eagle Award (2010) and Best Actress at the Busan International Film Festival (2016, Asian Content). In 2019, she won the Golden Mulberry Award for Lifetime Achievement at the Far East Film Festival.     A Passion for More:   In addition to excelling on screen and on stage, these three are not afraid to take control of their own story­ lines while trying to improve the lives of others. Indeed, they form a tenacious squad of women who stand up for their beliefs and the issues closest to their hearts. Breitling CEO Georges Kern adds: “Who better than Charlize Theron, Misty Copeland, and Yao Chen to turn the spotlight on major global causes as they redefine what it means to be a strong woman? Three leading stars known for being fierce and pushing boundaries. What binds them together is the Spotlight Squad and Breitling’s dedication to change, diversity, and reshap­ ing the world we live in.” “And now – dedicated to women – the new Chronomat 36 and 32 collection embodies flair, confidence, and an active lifestyle.”     Ready for any Mission:   With its commitment to core values and innovation, Breitling is also about pushing boundaries, whether it is high above the clouds, on the ground, or deep below the ocean waves. As versatile and attractive as the Spotlight Squad, its latest collection – the Chronomat 36 and 32 series – takes women wherever they want to go. Breitling’s first­ever Chronomat designed for women is suitable for any mission. While its roots are in the 1980s, this forward­looking timepiece is dedicated to innovative women of today who are reshaping atti­ tudes and challenging stereotypes. Sporty yet elegant, this modern­retro­inspired watch easily takes its wearer from business meeting to the beach – and everywhere in between. It symbolizes competence and effortless style.     Dutch Ambassadors:   Igone de Jongh trained at the National Ballet Academy in Amsterdam and The Royal Ballet School in London. Subsequently, she is promoted to principal soloist at the age of 24. Trust, perseverance and optimism are her core values. Even when she ended up wrong at twelve with the risk of never being able to dance again, she has not given up on her dream. What followed was an impressive career, which, thanks to her unique way of movement, brought about packed houses and standing ovations.   “For me, time is being in the moment: honest, sincere. Train and practice until my coordination and timing are right - are one. Then you become weightless, as if time stood still. Moments that make everything worthwhile. ”     In addition to being an actress and film maker, Hanna Verboom is also a social entrepreneur. Hanna is the founder of Get It Done (2007), an organization that inspires and activates people to work for others. At the end of 2014, she founded Cinetree, an on-demand film platform that, together with experts, makes a selection of inspiring films and documentaries every month. In addition to her own businesses, Hanna is committed to local, sustainable brands and social initiatives. Big dreams, small steps, this is her entrepreneurial mantra.   “Time is everything, it's the one thing we can't hold on to. It's the one thing we can't control or buy. That is why I consciously choose to only do things that I really believe in. ”     Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing is an actress and singer. She starred in LOVE IS_, a series for the Oprah Winfrey Network, and in REALLY LOVE, for which she received a prestigious acting award at the American festival SXSW. Growth is the great motivator in her life. During the filming of the lead role in 'How expensive was the sugar', an impressive time arose in which she could use her great talent and learned the importance of gathering knowledge. She received a nomination for a Golden Calf for this role.   “For me, time is surrender, showing myself my most vulnerable side. Time is endless and has no beginning and no end. It's about how much you enjoyed something, with your heart, the purest compass. ” Lights, camera, double debut: we’re thrilled to present Breitling’s new Spotlight Squad as we launch our line of Chronomat 36 and 32 watches – for women of purpose, action, and style.     “Our inspiration for this new collection is the Breitling woman herself, as represented in our #SQUADONAMISSION campaign: a woman of purpose, action, and style who’s at the top of her game,” says Breitling CEO Georges Kern.     Some people have mastered the art of not only shining in the spotlight, but also shining their light on others and inspiring change in the world.

SALLE PRIVÉE launches “CODE”

SALLE PRIVÉE launches “CODE”

Beauty CODE is an aesthetic design for all senses, designed to take a 12 ml (travel size) perfume well protected and in a stylish way everywhere.   The design designed by Patrick Munsters is inspired by the geometric shapes of the SALLE PRIVÉE logo. The name “CODE” refers to “symbol language”, codes used to communicate. It's also related to the repetition in the item, the circles in the squares, the almost mathematical geometric appearance.   The aluminum design invites you to click the perfume bottle through the holder over and over again, an addictive movement. The precision and craftsmanship of the product made in a Dutch studio create a perfume holder that has not been seen before. It works without a cap and thus only serves as a holder, so that it can simultaneously serve as an elegant display in the bathroom, on a desk or on a sideboard.     Two fragrances are available with the holder:   - LE TEMPS PERDU: A seductive and addictive Eau de Parfum. The fragrance has a layered, minimalist composition and refers to the most important work of writer Marcel Proust, a novel in which he focuses on the role of memory (and the influence of smell on it).    - CONCORDE: The fragrance pays homage to the world's first and - to date - only supersonic passenger jet, a technological feat far ahead of its time. Concorde became the ultimate symbol of the jet-set lifestyle. The perfume pays homage to the glamor of the 1970s jet set. A powerful, intense fragrance with an intriguing temperament that will turn heads.      SALLE PRIVES CODE is available in three versions: a 12ml double set with Concorde, a 12ml double set with Le Temps Perdu, and a set with both fragrances. Price (2 x 12 ml + CODE): € 98.

Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign

Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign

Fashion Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign, a perennial voyage transcending the times, an emotional journey across landscapes and borders, an innocent curiosity for what lies both beyond and within. At Louis Vuitton, travel goes beyond discovering a physical destination, it is equally a process of self-discovery, a personal journey. Through an entirely local production team, dreamlike settings photographed by Viviane Sassen come to life as the core values of the House are translated into imagery: the Art of Travel, dreams and escapism, transmission from generation to generation, and continuous optimism.   Imagination takes flight to Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice, an island of light and darkness with mesmerising landscapes. Through contrasting scenery, from the island’s southern black sand beaches and mystical peninsulas to the northern dramatic glacier lakes and small lava caves, children appear, as if in a reverie. Beds of ice and snow lay softly on background plains, with shy rays of light daring their way through the misty skies. The high standing mountains mirror themselves in the infinite pool of water, calmly sectioning off colours of blue and grey.   The inner child is set free towards a dream, gazing upon the bright future with a sense of innocence and joy. And as in a child’s world, anything is possible: hat boxes become musical tambourines, Alzer trunks magically morph into an Eiffel Tower, the surreal sized keys to trunk locks parade along the island’s coastline. A sense of freedom with the lightness of tomorrow, a voyage to a land within.   Photographer Viviane Sassen takes her lens on an emotional journey beyond Iceland’s ethereal landscapes for the House’s 2020 brand campaign. Icelandic school children venture across the island’s impressive nature, playfully exploring the horizons of the island. Since the 1980s, globetrotting photographers have captured the iconic Monogram and galleries of personality portraits in everchanging scenery, shot in unexpected corners of the world, each artist creating powerful imagery still relevant today.     Louis Vuitton reveals its new brand campaign, a perennial voyage transcending the times, an emotional journey across landscapes and borders, an innocent curiosity for what lies both beyond and within.

Maita restaurant, Haarlem

Maita restaurant, Haarlem

Food  An evening at Maita will give you an experience you want to repeat, a mix of a contemporary urban environment, spectacular service accompanied with great cuisine. The Nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian) cuisine is at the heart of the Maita expirience bringing new bold flavors to the Netherlands. Nikkei cuisine embraces eye catching colours & full bodied taste brought forth by our quality ingredients. In short Maita is all about quality, ingredients and flavours.     We had a pleasure speaking with the founders of the restaurant.     Tell our readers about your restaurant concept, being a Peruvian & Japanese inspired restaurant? And how did you decide to open it in Haarlem?   We call it Nikkei kitchen, because of Japanese immigrants living in Peru which represent 10% of the population in Peru, which are called the Nikkei people.  Cocina Nikkei it’s what we call it in Spanish as well.    We were always following the food trends in the world. Because there was no Peruvian or Peruvian-Japanese restaurant in The Netherlands at the time we decided to open the first one. Firstly we were exploring the option of opening it in Amsterdam, but then as that is already a saturated market with a lot of restaurants we though why not open it in Haarlem where people like to go out and eat as well as try new things, however we did not know much about Haarlem ourselves at first.   At first people were saying that such a high-end concept is not going to work in Haarlem and now we are fortunate enough to have people returning and becoming regular costumers, also customers coming from other cities to Haarlem just to come to Maita.      Tell us more about your menu and its amazing dishes.   All the dishes are designed for a shared dining experience. Starts with para picar (smaller bites), followed by a variety of traditional ceviches with very powerful and well spiced flavors. Ceviche is actually a national dish of Peru.   Following that we suggest ordering tiraditos, which is Japanese inspired Sashimi with tiger milk. Following that we offer a variety of sushi rolls including nigiri and uramaki with Peruvian touches including a Maita signature roll, which we highly recommend.  We also have a menu of signature cocktails to match with the dishes or you can go for a wine-paring as well as other soft drinks etc. Our popular signature ingredient is PISCO, therefore we call our bar PISCO BAR. The selection of warm dishes vary from beef, chicken, sea bass which is our best-seller and more incredible dishes. We also are proud of cooking our dishes on the Japanese barbeque: Robata  which is a big part of our concept. Lastly we also offer a  few sweets such as Matcha tiramisu and frozen coconut to name a few. Since recently we are also open on Mondays, when we offer a special Sushi based menu with 10 special sushi rolls and they call it Monday Sushi Madness.     "When entering the restaurant first thing you notice is the beautiful mix of colors that take you right away to Peru and Japan. You can also see the open kitchen which makes the experience ever more fun. We can easily say this is our favorite restaurant in Haarlem for the quality of the food, uniqueness of the menu and concept as well as their signature cocktails and beautifully designed restaurant. We higlhy reccomend it and for the ones not from Haarlem, worthy of a visit. It is a perfect place for a dinner with friends or a date."- Timotej Letonja     Due to the current situation they also offer a delivery and take-away menu with some of our signature and popular dishes.
