The Geneva Motor Show, 2011 – The Journey Continues…

Instead of commenting on what’s new and interesting, I prefer to simply download a few observations and thoughts that occurred whilst in Geneva this year.

London Fashion Week A/W’11 – Textures & Prints

A/W ’11 is predominantly seen as the darker, more subdued season, calming down after a summer of outlandish dressing. But in a way only London Fashion Week could get away with, a subdivision of designers are turning their backs on the norm – probably as a result of this endless winter! This season saw a […]

CES 2011: The Great Future of TV and digital content debate rages on …

As we exited the registration hall at CES 2011, we were handed a hefty book called ‘Screen Future’. We were jet-lagging and very tempted to ‘recycle’ it quickly as we weren’t too keen to lug this heavy tome around with us. But by the end of the day we were glad we had hung onto our copies as the debate about ‘TV and the other screens in our lives’ was bubbling away furiously inside the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

Nice design and stuff

Every week I’ll be sharing some things that I think are interesting, beautiful, funny or just lovely, from the world of design, art and architecture. I will try not to make it too much of a personal wish list, but if you are wondering what to get me for Christmas…

Snapshot: Interiors 2011

Last week I went up to Birmingham NEC to visit the Interior 2011 show. Firstly, it’s no Milan when it comes to looking at cutting edge trends in furniture , but that is not really the point of the show.

The second best thing after sliced bread? Milk bottle openers

On returning from my local corner shop with a bottle of milk, I laid out the tools required to formulate the perfect cup of tea: kettle-on, sugar-out, mug selected , tea bag dumped. Tea making has become so habitual, it’s something that’s assumed to be done with ease by all.

Should airport scanning become more sensitive to cultural differences and basic human rights?

Because of what I do, I spend a lot of time thinking about cultural differences. Whilst travelling recently, a simple procedure at an airport challenged my perceptions of how “culturally-sensitive” I really am, and got me thinking about the interconnectedness of modesty, security, and human rights.

Delivering better experiences: A trip to Kastrup

Both work and personal life regularly take me to Copenhagen’s principal airport, Kastrup. Unlike many airports, Kastrup is one of the few that I actually look forward to passing through, to the extent that on a number of occasions, I have actually tried my best to arrive early, just to spend more time there.
