editor’s note

Travel has long fired the imagination. Throughout history, many adventurers have embarked on life-changing expeditions that broaden the mind. While our personal journeys may not have the epic scope of literary odysseys, the modern traveller can easily attest to the irresistible allure of wanderlust. In this issue, we discuss the myriad ways travel can change our visual perspective and shape the ways in which we design our homes. The annual Milan Design Week is a rich source of inspiration for designers and homeowners alike; we covered the fair and discovered trend-setting collections in our report (pages 44 and 74). Elsewhere, our well-travelled writers explore the revitalised waterfront districts in London, Hong Kong and New York (page 68). These former industrial sites are becoming vibrant neighbourhoods filled with creative initiatives to inspire…

HISTORIC BEAUTY A former theatre has been transformed into The Hoxton Portland, a new American boutique property designed in response to the building’s past life and the city’s thriving arts scene. The public areas of the Portland hotel have been revitalised by Fettle to incorporate the original wooden columns, old plaster finishes, and textured concrete with the architectural elements of its new extension; a plush mix of mohair, velvet, dark wood and leather complete its handsome look. thehoxton.com STYLISH DIVISION Now available bigger than ever, the sculptural look of the Shanghai bookcase by Bavuso Giuseppe from Alivar creates an instant visual impact; its large proportions makes it suitable as a room divider too.

When Jaime Hayón’s collaboration with Fritz Hansen first started in 2011, it came as a surprise to pundits and even the Spanish designer himself. “It’s been a very intense relationship,” admits Hayón. “I was supposed to be the person that would definitely not fit the company when they met me. I was too wild, too crazy.” Fast-forward to today, this unexpected pairing has since proven to be a winning partnership. Since then, Hayón has created collections that tap into the brand’s furniture-making repertoire while embracing his joyful aesthetic. Most recently, the Madrid-born designer created a series of showrooms for the brand in Asia, including its Singapore flagship (pictured above). “I try to create an atmosphere that has the feeling of being in a hotel or a home,” he explains.

STAY SAVONA 18 SUITES A once-abandoned building gets a new lease of life as a boutique hotel. The residential-style interior by the Italian architect and Memphis co-founder Aldo Cibic creates an intimate atmosphere while preserving its authentic Milanese flavour, combining the retro charm of the structure with contemporary decor.

Designed by Rgastudio, its interior features precious details in brass and marble, with an Italian touch conveyed through the original masterpieces on its walls. pinacotecabrera.org SHOP SIX GALLERY Curated by David Lopez Quincoces and Fanny Bauer Grung—the duo…
