Row NYC Making you feel brand new featured

Running a hotel in a city that never sleeps might sound like a bad idea. But firstly, it’s only a catchphrase people. And secondly, there’s a new breed of hotels that are harnassing rather than fighting the raw energy of the city – without sacrificing even one of your forty winks.

Since opening towards the start of 2014, Row NYC is a front-runner is this regard and as part of a…

Fortunen Nordic nonchalance featured

It’s not easy to make the transition from daylight nosher to late-night swiller, but Fortunen makes a sterling job of it. Their (poorly kept) secret?

This massive exhibition space, along with its equally ample brother in Beijing, has long been a cutting-edge powerhouse on the international contemporary art scene.

Re-conceptualized in late 2012, the cavernous multi-room space now displays an array of sculpture, installations, photography and painting from figures such as Mexican-born, Berlin-based Damián Ortega and the pluralistic, medium-hopping German Christian Lemmerz.

Paustian A modern design fetishist's haven

This interior design store is way more than just a Danish Ikea. Besides owning an extensive catalogue—one of Denmark’s largest furniture retailers—the Scandinavian franchise is also the sole importer of household design names that would make any modern design glutton an immediate fan: Ruckstuhl, Verner Panton, Charles and Ray Eames are but a few of the hidden gems inside the store.

At the very least, swing by the Nordhaven docks for a glimpse of the Jørn Utzon-designed storefront, and grab a snack at the restaurant of the same name.
