This autumn, the deepest diving pool in the world will be put into operation near Warsaw (exactly in Mszczonów). The project is called Deepspot and is unique by its size, but also because of the transparency of water. Crystalline depth of 45 meters (8,000 cubic meters of water, 27 times as much as in ordinary 25-meter swimming pools!) will provide pool users with an extraordinary experience. Great place to practice your diving skills! lees verder

Created in collaboration with Whisperlodge, hotel Moxy NYC Chelsea recently announced the launch of exclusive titillating bedtime story videos for guests. Featuring Bella Thorne and Dani Thorne (COM3T), along with Caroline Vreeland, they are taking guests on a sensory-stimulating journey. The A.S.M.R. Bedtime story videos will be available at Midtown Manhattan’s boldest new hotel opening, Moxy NYC Chelsea by Marriott International, exclusively in-room for one month beginning April 15th. Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (A.S.M.R.) is a sensory phenomenon where viewers feel pleasurable tingles from specific visual, auditory and haptic triggers.

We were kind of surprised to watch the videos from Moxy’s NYC Chelsea A.S.M.R. Bedtime Stories! We don’t think we will fall asleep with the A.S.M.R. bedtime story (check the next page) but it might inspire us to go downstairs to eat something!

Concrete proudly presents the opening of its latest hotel project, the Andaz Munich in Schwabing. Like a kaleidoscope, the Andaz hotel reflects the culture and tradition of the neighbourhood, creating a stimulating and inspiring atmosphere where guests and locals can feel at home. Weaving state-of-the-art technology and old traditions into the interior, reflecting what makes Munich unique, forming a sense of tension that can be found throughout the hotel design. The many facets of Bavarian culture run like a leitmotif through the design. This is reflected from the largest scale to the smallest details. Many icons associated with the city of Munich have been reinterpreted or abstracted as small highlights drizzled throughout the hotel, while traditional materials have been given a modern interpretation via a contemporary design language, including a ‘golden pretzel’. lees verder

EARTH Water, the fairest water producer in the Netherlands, is taking a pioneering step in the sustainability of product packaging. By adding the new plant-based cap, the packaging material of the 33cl cardboard packaging is now 100% reusable.

Spirited Union Distillery | The first rum distillery in the Netherlands

21-3-2019

The grey cobblestone streets and stately canal houses of Amsterdam; they are far from the sandy beaches, palm trees and ferocious pirates we associate with rum. Nevertheless, it was under the Dutch rain where the Spirited Union Distillery and its Union55 rum were created. In 2015, Ruben Maduro found himself fed up with the sickly sweet and artificial flavors in his beloved (spiced) rums. “I travelled all over the world as a brand ambassador, bartender and trainer. And one thing struck me: The lack of innovation in rum.” One and a half year later, in early 2017, an experiment had evolved into an uncategorized rum. A botanically infused one.. lees verder
