It took them almost ten months of construction, but on the 17th of May Doloris will open their doors to the  surrealistic ‘Meta Maze’ and rooftop bar. Doloris’ Meta Maze (as the maze is officially called) is the new creative, touristic hotspot of Tilburg and the Netherlands. A surrealistic maze of 400 m2, full of art and a touch of Alice in Wonderland, Narnia or Stranger Things. A walk- or climb-through art experience with over 40 rooms of surreal art, designed and built by the creators of Karmanoia. In the realm of Doloris you immerse yourself in a world beyond ours. As you follow oblique pathways, slip through hidden loopholes, walk through walls and encounter mysterious objects, time becomes fluid. Meta Maze is the only “immersive art experience” of this format in Europe and unique in the world in terms of form.

YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends the past few years. Every day, thousands of movies are uploaded with new and interesting content. We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of 3 videos which our colleague Micha Luksenburg thinks are worth watching.

This week a video about the food that’s being served at Korean game cafés.

Have you ever tasted woodworms? Well, they seem to be considered ‘the new oysters’ in the Philippines! And a video about a very popular ‘Japanese style sandwich’ that is being served in Los Angeles. Instagrammable! lees verder

Last January we visited Miami Beach, unfortunately just one night and last minute so the hotel was fully booked. But in the morning we hired bikes to stroll the scenic bike path of Miami beach and took a short moment to visit this particular and truly artistic hotel. Even breakfast was fully booked but walking through the entrance to the garden with the famous Damien Hirst’ sculpture ‘Gone but not Forgotten’, was worth the visit. The Faena Hotel Miami Beach is part of the ‘Leading Hotels of the World’ and is famous for their commitment to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary. Faena Hotel Miami Beach features remarkable works by artists including Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Alberto Garutti, Gonzalo Fuenmayor, Manuel Ameztoy and Juan Gatti.

So if you’re going to Miami Beach and love art, we definitely recommend you to check whether you can stay at this artistic hotel! You could also try to make a reservation at one of their restaurants or have a sip at the Saxony bar.   lees verder

The place can be used to get some work done or for example if you have time to fill between meetings, or if you just arrived in town after a long flight and need somewhere to freshen up before going to your office or a meeting. lees verder
