BLOMMERS AND NIELS SCHUMM

Amsterdam-based photographers Blommers and Niels Schumm both studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and started working together in 1998. They operate in a zone between fashion, art and photography, with shifting perspectives, where images move back and forth between different meanings. In this shoot for Baron Magazine, Blommers and Schumm made normal objects appear erotic. ‘It’s nice that people think they are perverts, looking at these boring still lifes,’ they say.

TORIN CORPORATION FACTORY by MARCEL BREUER & ASSOCIATES (1963-1964)

(Torin Corporation Factory, Nevilles, Belgium, 1963-64)

During the course of an illustrious 50-year career that took him from the Bauhaus to New York, architect Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) generated a huge, influential and varied body of work. This is a comprehensive study of his oeuvre, looking at both Breuer’s built and unbuilt work. He was a master of concrete technology and produced hundreds of buildings and designs that are distinguished by the diversity of their structure, material and form. He has been referred to as “the last modernist”. This text aims to make it clear why his work was so revered.

LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH 5000 QV QUATTROVALVOLE (1985)

In 1985 the engine was improved again, bored and stroked to 5.2 litres (5,167 cc) and given four valves per cylinder (quattrovalvole in Italian). The carburetors were moved from the sides to the top of the engine for better breathing — unfortunately this created a hump on the engine deck, reducing the already poor rear visibility to almost nothing. Some body panels were also replaced by Kevlar. In later versions of the engine, the carburettors were replaced with fuel-injection.

KRUG UNVEILS THE FLÂNERIE CHAMPAGNE COOLER

Krug has listened to Krug Lovers, who love to share and appreciate their favourite champagne in unexpected places, and has created the Krug Flânerie.  The House has played with the codes of luxury leatherwork to create this practical and ingenious “must have” article.  Bearing the Krug stamp, its adjustable shoulder strap gives the option of carrying it slung across the shoulder or held in the hand.  Arranged in the form of stars, the strips of natural cowhide interweave to form a slouch bag, while subtly recalling the numerous vintages that make up the rich blend of Krug Grande Cuvée.  They reveal glimpses of the deep cherry-red interior, evoking the emblematic colour of the House of Krug, and in which a detachable cooler encases Krug Grande Cuvée, preserving it at the ideal temperature of 10ºC for two hours. Price: £185 ($200).

NUGGETS: ORIGINAL ARTYFACTS FROM THE FIRST PSYCHEDELIC ERA 1965-1968 (BOX-SET)

That the most famous garage-rock record of all time, the Kingsmen’s “Louie Louie,” is buried on the last CD of this four-disc box is very much in keeping with the spirit of the (often) one-hit wonders that people Nuggets. Here, “Louie Louie” is just another great song. An elaboration on the 1972 double LP, which is included in its original sequence, this set piles on dozens more great moments of inspiration, guts, chutzpah, and sometimes sheer commercial calculation. How else to explain the advice “Look at yourself” from the likes of the Strawberry Alarm Clock, whose idea of mind expansion seems limited to putting together two very vaguely related nouns–”Incense and Peppermints”–so their swinging Farfisa-led track will have something, anything, for verbal content? There’s loads of such wisdom on display here, prefab and otherwise, usually delivered as rabidly as possible. (Try the Remains’ “Don’t Look Back,” Mouse and the Traps’ “Maid of Sugar–Maid of Spice,” or the Music Machine’s “Talk Talk,” which was actually a hit.)

POINT LINE SURFACE by OSKAR SCHLEMMER (1928)

Schlemmer is one of the lesser-known Weimar and Bauhaus artists. This book is a catalog of the Baltimore Museum of Art show now touring the United States. Various essays describe the social and political climate of the times and Schlemmer’s work in experimental theater and dance. Chronology of his life (with photographs) is included, along with descriptions of the contents of the show. Schlemmer took the human figure and tried for a geometrical objectivity, but emotional mystery still remains. The numerous color plates, many of them rarely if ever reproduced in an English-language book, will be of interest to artists and scholars.

DEATH & CO (NEW YORK)

Despite the ominous name, there’s nothing gloomy about this speakeasy styled bar. Hiding behind distinctive doors, the interior exudes a cool, jazzy vibe, low-lit and intimate. Kerosene lanterns and crystal chandeliers add to the atmosphere, scattering shadows up the gold-flecked walls. The cocktails are truly superb, mixed by bartenders, who learned their trade at the likes of the Pegu Club and the Flatiron Lounge. There’s also a plentiful array of well-chosen wines, scotches and whiskies. This is one for people who like their bars grown-up and atmospheric rather than riotous and super-trendy. And the name? Well, in yet another nice touch, it’s a reference to a Prohibition-era art movement.

GOVERMENT CENTER by EDWARD LARRABEE BARNES (1965-1969)

(Office Building, Massachusetts)

The eminent architect Edward Larrabee Barnes is a member of the generation of influential modernists that emerged in America after World War II. After studying architecture at Harvard University under Bauhaus masters Marcel Breuer and Walter Gropius, Barnes set up his own practice in New York in 1949. Since then, over the course of a long and varied career, he has worked in a modern vocabulary shaped by his own approach to geometry, composition, and siting. Barnes is a fellow of the American Institute of Architects and has received the AIA Twenty-Five-Year Award, the Thomas Jefferson Medal in Architecture, the Harvard University 350th Anniversary Medal, and some forty other awards for design excellence.  The projects in this monograph present the full range of Barnes’ work: office buildings, museums, botanical gardens, private houses, churches, schools, camps, colleges, campus planning, and housing. The extraordinary Dallas Museum of Art and the much-admired Walker Art Center in Minneapolis are among the museums shown. The houses include his best known, among them the Osborn, Hecksher, and Dallas houses. Office buildings presented include the dramatic IBM Building at Madison Avenue and Fifty-seventh Street with its popular interior bamboo garden, the office tower at 599 Lexington Avenue, both in New York, and the Federal Judiciary Building in Washington, D.C. Among the academic projects are the early, widely influential Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Camp Hidden Valley for the Fresh Air Fund, dormitories at St. Paul’s School, arts facilities at the Emma Willard School and Bowdoin College, and several campus plans, including those for the State University of New York at Purchase and the Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis.  Peter Blake’s introduction presents Barnes’ work in both its architectural and cultural contexts. Blake also discusses Barnes’ background and the evolution of his designs over the years, closely analyzing particular built works. Barnes’ personal comments on each project provide further insight.

LE LION BAR (HAMBURG)

Though comparatively new on the scene, Le Lion’s Bar de Paris is a classic bar in every sense. One of the best bars in town, it’s also one of the stand out cocktail bars in Germany – full stop. It’s not a fashion-driven bar, far from it; the ambience is sophisticated, without ever feeling pretentious and the drinks are truly something. The bartenders really know their business, their knowledge of cocktails are encyclopedic and they are genuinely enthused about their craft – real care is taken in the preparation of every drink. Of course this level of service and craftsmanship comes at a price, Le Lion isn’t cheap but the quality of the experience is worth every penny – these are world class cocktails. An upmarket evening is guaranteed, but booking a table is very much recommended.

W, LEICESTER SQUARE (LONDON)

(From £249 GBP per night)

Flashbulbs pop, and perfect smiles flash in front of W Leicester Square, a place of dreams and heroes in the legendary city of London. Strike a pose (and make it a good one.)      An ice-white exterior, with changing-color highlights, leads you to a mostly-black interior highlighted by 648 multi-faceted disco balls  “Star-studded” is a term often used to describe Leicester Square, and in turn, W Leicester Square. You see, although celebrities may not eat or age, they do in fact need to sleep. So, when the cameras stop flashing at the many theatre previews, the young and fabulous retire to the slick corridors of W Leicester Square.  The celluloid dreams of many reside in this shining beacon, spread throughout 192 rooms including 21 suites. Each is designed in a palate of gold and bold, with graphic prints adding a little punk into the mix. iPod holders are of course on hand for those “back-to-my-room” after parties.  Socializing is obviously a big concern at W Leicester Square, and there are ample opportunities to excel at this favorite British pastime. Check out Wyld bar for grooves so new they’ve yet to hit the Internet, and cocktails so original, they’ll have you hard pressed to drink anywhere else.  Down in the Lobby, white, gold, leather, and glass wrap guests in a luscious environ in which to enjoy tea, British fare, and some very fine people watching.  For something a bit zestier, head to the Spice Market. Southeast Asian tastes are remixed and re-mastered by none other than Jean-Georges Vongerichten, a celebrity in his own right. Get ready for a dining experience akin to sharing a meal in a Thai street market – without all the tuk tuks vying to mow you down.

LA SEANCE DE PEINTURE by FRANCOIS-EMILE BARRAUD (1932)

François Barraud (14 November 1899 – 11 September 1934) was a Swiss painter.Barraud was the eldest of four brothers who all painted or sculpted at various points in their lives. The brothers, François, Aimé, Aurèle and Charles, were largely self-taught artists having been raised as professional plasterers and house painters. Barraud attended evening classes at the local art school in 1911 together with his brothers. In 1919, he exhibited his paintings in La Chaux-de-Fonds and participated in the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Basel. Encouraged by the success of the exhibitions he left Switzerland in 1922, and moved to Reims in France where he worked as a house painter for two years. He married Marie, a French woman, in 1924. Marie subsequently featured as a model in several of his paintings. Around 1924 or 1925, Barraud found work in Paris as an artist and craftsman. While living in Paris he studied painting at the Louvre. François Barraud painted mainly still lifes, female nudes and portraits, including several double portraits of himself and his wife, Marie His precise, realist style of painting developed under the influence of the old Flemish and French masters he had studied at the Louvre.  Barraud suffered periods of illness throughout his life and died of tuberculosis in Geneva, in 1934, at the age of 34. Arthur Stoll held a major collection of François Barraud’s works. His works are also held in the Musée des beaux-arts in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the Coninx Museum in Zurich and the Foundation for Art, Culture and History in Winterthur.

THE MUNSTERS

I love this series!!!

The Munsters is an American family television sitcom depicting the home life of a family of monsters. It stars Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster and Yvonne De Carlo as his wife, Lily Munster. The series was a satire of both traditional monster movies and popular family entertainment of the era, such as Leave It to Beaver. It ran concurrently with The Addams Family.  The idea of a family of comical monsters was first suggested to Universal Studios in the late 1940s by animator Bob Clampett, who wanted to do a series of cartoons. The project didn’t see development until the early 1960s, when a treatment or ‘format’ for a similar idea was submitted to Universal Studios by Rocky & Bullwinkle writers Allan Burns and Chris Hayward.

This format was later handed to writers Norm Liebman and Ed Haas, who wrote a pilot script, Love Thy Monster. For some time, there were executives who believed the series should be made as a cartoon and others who wanted to see it made using live-action. Finally, a presentation was filmed by MCA Television for CBS, using live-action.  The series aired at night once a week in black-and-white on the CBS Television Network from September 24, 1964 to May 12, 1966, for 70 episodes. It was broadcast weekly on BBC1 in the UK. It was canceled after ratings dropped to a low due to the premiere of ABC’s Batman, which was in full color.[citation needed] Though ratings were low during its initial two-year run, The Munsters grew in popularity during decades of syndication. This popularity warranted a spin-off series, as well as several films, including one with a theatrical release.

PUBLIC (CHICAGO)

PUBLIC, conceived by Ian Schrager, is an entirely new class of hotel. Its fundamental attributes are innovative, sophisticated, authentic style; spot-on, personalized, empathetic “essential” service; lasting comfort with complete functionality, all at an affordable price and offering tremendous value. For the first time, this type of hotel experience will be available for everyone and anyone who wants it.  Ian Schrager has taken the best from the luxury segment, boutique hotels and select service to create a new genre of hotel where everything has been rethought and every original idea updated.  At PUBLIC, service matters most. But the key point of differentiation is in the kind and quality of services it offers. The brand will only offer services that matter, those that guests really want and need rather than an array of superfluous services they do not use.  PUBLIC Chicago is a complete transformation of the Gold Coast’s famed Ambassador East Hotel and its historic Pump Room restaurant. Rich with a cultural heritage that spans decades, the hotel and the Pump Room was a place to see and be seen and played host to a multitude of celebrities and people from all over the world and all walks of life.  A reinvented and reimagined hotel and Pump Room with a new food concept by James Beard award winning chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, will continue to be the fashionable spot it was originally envisioned to be, for an eclectic mix of people who come together to socialize and dine as they have for past decades. It will still be the hotel and Pump Room, but better.  PUBLIC Chicago’s 285 spacious and oversized guest rooms and suites are individually furnished with integrity, taste and superb functionality. Decorated in a soothing, “no color” color palette, the interiors evoke a sense of ease and comfort and the character of a home away from home.

(The Pump Room restaurant)

The Pump Room restaurant offers reasonably priced, delicious favorites in a relaxed, comfortable, and exciting environment. The new food concept was created by world-renowned chef and 2011 James Beard award winner Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Original Pump Room menu classics were reinvented and recreated by Jean-Georges providing his special touch and amazing style.

He will support local purveyors, regional flavors and offer a “farm to table” experience. At night, the restaurant’s bar transforms into a supper club recapturing the glamour of the 30′s and 40′s with a modern twist. Offerings include late night tapas style small plates as well as local, domestic and international draught and bottled beer; exotic, specialty cocktails by our own mixologist, and great music. The restaurant is open for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, After Work/Happy Hour and weekend Brunch.

LUCIA NOVA (VALLETTA)

The new boutique self-catering accommodation in Valletta, Malta.  Lucia Nova, a Maltese house – historic, slightly worn at the edges, a little bit of the old mixed with the new. Distressed original walls preserved for their beauty, are combined with beautiful fabrics and contemporary design furniture and lamps. Located in the old quarter of the town, where the windows and balconies are festooned with the day’s washing, hanging out like street decorations ready for a parade.
