This issue is dedicated to our beloved Executive Editor, Neil McLennan, who unexpectedly passed away recently. Neil had been a well-loved part of the Livingetc family for more than 12 years and he will be dearly, dearly missed. Over the course of my career, I learnt a lot from him. He was the master of tone, king of the one-liner, expert at conceiving narrative, but above all he had flair. A flair for fashion, a flair for language and a flair for fun.

A café concept from DWA design studio and Lambert & Fils sought to encourage mealtime conversation with inclusive u-shaped tables and doughnut inspired bars, pictured, while Georg Jensen teamed up with artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset to launch a signal-blocking ‘slumber bed’ for smartphones. 2 MATCH POINT Grab your visor and pile up on Pimm’s – Wimbledon is just around the corner.

THE NAME TO DROP federica biasi Federica Biasi’s story is a tale of two cities (or rather two trade fairs, to be less romantic but more precise). Having been nominated by esteemed Italian architect Andrea Branzi for Maison&Objet’s Rising Talent Awards in Paris, 2018, fast forward to this year’s Milan furniture fair and the young designer’s ascent to the top looked complete. Her new launches for big-time furniture brand Gallotti&Radice included Sophie (a sofa version of last year’s smash-hit armchair, maturing from baby pink velvet to a rust red bouclé) and Jolie – a mega-watt, mouth-blown glass and satin brass light that can be used as a pendant or wall fixture. Elsewhere, Biasi can be found flexing a more Art Deco-inspired design muscle as art director at manufacturing firm Mingardo, bringing to the…

for many, working in the glam world of fashion would be a dream job, but Anna Barnett found herself gravitating towards her first love: cooking. After landing a debut book deal in 2015, her career change was inevitable. Today, her fresh cooking style has made her one of the most sought-after new chefs for people in the know. Sum up your business in five words… Food, seasonal, varied, collaborative, travel. When was your light-bulb moment? The moment I realised cooking and writing about food could be a career. I’ve always been passionate about food but was working in fashion at the time [as international sales manager for House of Holland]. I suddenly knew what I could achieve if I poured all my energy into my own goal. What was your big break? Getting a…
