MONDRIAN, DOHA, QATAR

As anyone familiar with Mondrian hotels knows, understatement is not the chain’s defining trait.

BURNING MAN

BURNING MAN The organisers eschew calling it a festival. It’s festive, to say the least. But Burning Man is simply Burning Man, an annual event that celebrates art, human relationships and our adherence to natural impulse. The event has its own rich history: It started on a beach near San Francisco with 20 people celebrating […]

MONACO? NO, I SAID PORTO MONTENEGRO

MONACO? NO, I SAID PORTO MONTENEGRO Montenegro is starting to wake up, or maybe the rest of the world is awakening to Montenegro. As the small, shy sibling on the Balkan peninsular, Montenegro remained in relative global obscurity until it gained independence in 2006. It turns out they have a good thing going in Montenegro, and […]

BRUTALISM FOR THE WRIST? THAT’S HUBLOT’S CONCRETE THINKING
