August 16th-21th I had the pleasure to visit and photograph the cool boutique hotel The Waterhose At South Bund in Shanghai, China which is part of the Unlisted Collection. Local architects Neri & Nu transformed a 1930s factory in the river docks into an industrial-glam boutique pad, fusing the framework (steel supports, concrete walls) with design classics and high-tech gizmos. Each of the 19 bright rooms has a slightly different layout. I also love their gorgerous restaurant Table NO. 1 where they ‘re serving world influeced modern European food in a casual and contemporary setting. The hotel is a member of Design Hotels.
August 9th-13th I had the pleasure to visit and photograph the beautiful boutique hotel The Opposite House in Beijing, China which is a part of the Swire Hotels. The hotel is designed by the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and located in the fancy quarter Sanlitun in Beijing. The slate and natural timbers used in the airy studios, suites and penthouse give it the fee of urban tranquil retreat.
This summer I’ve been picking a lot of red currants in our garden. I made smoothie with strawberry, red currants, sugar and skyr; that’s really a combo that I love on a warm and sunny summer day. Likewise I made sky icecream with read currants which tasted heavenly served with some freshly picked red currants on the top.
July 8th-10th I had the pleasure to visit and photograph the beautiful design hotel Skt. Petri in Copenhagen. Skt. Petri is a member of the Design Hotels which is a collections of hotels who presents hotels with a genuine hospitality, culturel authenticity, thoughtprovoking design and architecture. The hotel is situated on a beautiful street in Copenhagen’s quiant, trendy Latin Quarter. Skt. is a fine example of superior minimalistic Scandinavian design and modern comfort. The elegantly furnishes rooms come in a coloured palette of blond Wood, salte grey and burnt orange. Cozy armchairs, standing lamps with lightcoloures Shades by Moooi. Likewise the rooms has a fabulous view over Copenhagen
Saturday May 28th I had the pleasure to participate in and photograph the Skagerak 3 Days of Design event at the Skagerak Flagship Store in Copenhagen. It was such a lovely and cozy day with delicious food made by the Danish Restaurant Stedsans and sweet people. The two desigers Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Nordentoft from the store Stilleben did talk about the Edge pots that they’ve designed for Skagerak.
