    Tour of Ace Hotels Around The World.

    21st March

    Ace Hotels really do live up to their name. Each one has a unique style, a fascinating history, and an Ace Philosophy at its heart. For Ace, hospitality is “compassion” and the hotel is a “potential for real, fluid community.” Ace Hotels are iconic around the world for their fresh approach and for changing the way of the hotel industry across the board. Since Alex Calderwood, the late founder of Ace Hotels, decided to convert a maritime workers’ hotel in Seattle with his friends and open the first Ace Hotel in 1999, hotels haven’t been the same. With passionate, creative ideas driving them, Ace has lead the way for boutique hotels with a difference.

    The Inaugural Aesop Berlin Store by Weiss—heiten.

    15th November

    Weiss—heiten have designed the first signature store in Germany for Australian skin care brand, Aesop. The store recently opened on Alte Schönhauser Street in Berlin, Mitte. Reflecting Aesop‘s approach to build unique site-specific stores that reflect local qualities, Weiss—heiten explored the unique character of Berlin, it’s tension between the contrast of old and new, roughness and beauty, urban and nature. Inspired by Gerhard Richter’s colour studies and monochromatic canvases and by the city’s industrial history and everyday charm, the interior assumes a palette of leaf-green and a quietly clinical aesthetic…

    Camper Flagship Showroom by Neri & Hu // Shanghai, China.

    5th November

    The Camper store is a reinterpreted two storey traditional house, sliced in half and opening itself up to the “laneway” within the warehouse which it sits. The slice is expressed with a bright red rubber, which is the same rubber used for Camper’s shoe souls and branding. An angled mirror terminates the laneway so the reflection visually completes the other half of the sliced house. Materials have been recycled from demolished residential sites, creating a diverse and textural palette, steeped in the history and memory of the city. The wire hangers displaying shoes from above make reference to the drying laundry of the alleyways…



    Shiny Disco Balls: Disco Volante by Lukas Galehr // Vienna, Austria.

    25th October

    And just as I thought I’d seen it all, along comes a giant Disco Ball Pizza Oven… I’m literally squealing with excitement at this little nugget of genius. Disco Volante is a Viennese pizzeria designed by Lukas Galehr. This interior is a shining light of example of the power of a single design element – its ability to completely transform the space and take it to a whole new level cannot be underestimated. The client brief called for an atmosphere of a typical southern Italian pizzeria, while capturing the spirit of the “Italo-Disco”era of the 1970s and 80s. Galehr’s stroke of genius was to turn the heart of the pizzeria, its wood fire oven, into a giant disco ball with a rotating mechanism. I know! Take THAT John Travolta. Your Saturday Night Fever moves ain’t got nothin’ on this baby…
