Our Monthly Obsessions

Alice & Fifth Nightclub, Johannesburg

The latest underground avant-garde nightlife venue in Johannesburg, the hot spot for luxury dining.
It is a darkly masculine night club in a rich, retro style with velvet upholstery, dark wood, brass fittings, heavy drapery and no windows.
Designer Tristan Plessis and his Studio - A/Tristan Plessis Studio, designed the space in a version of edgy decadence.
“The feel was intended to be nostalgic of a time gone by with a contemporary twist and a slightly dark undertone”, Says Plessis
The target customers are those seeking an adventurous night out in a Johannesburg style - a supper club with live performances.

Enso Ango hotel, Kyoto

With five separate locations around the center of Kyoto, Enso Ango is Japan’s first “dispersed” hotel, though scattering the rooms and amenities a few roads apart it's not for lack of space: the aim is to immerse guests in the local culture. Each of the 5 buildings has its own particular styles, features and functionalities, combines traditional and contemporary minimalist design. A broad team of designers and artists bringing a different flavor to each of the five buildings, created everything from the decor to the uniforms, furniture and fittings, as well as the interior gardens, known as Tsuboniwa – a common feature of Kyoto houses.
It is the first hotel from new brand Ango Hotels, and guest activities include Zen meditation, cooking classes, guided night runs, yoga, tatami mat workshops and talks from local artists.
Its hope is to bring the traveler to a deeper experience of the lifestyle and culture of the city.

John Anthony dim sum, Hong Kong

Located at Causeway Bay’s Lee Garden Three, Hong Kong, John Anthony Dim-Sam restaurant hopes to push the boundaries of culinary innovation. The restaurant design takes its cue from the life of a cross-cultural pioneer, but also references a retro, Chinese canteen in east London. Designed by Shanghai and Hong Kong-based architecture and design studio Line- house, the restaurant is named after John Anthony, the first Chinese-born man to be naturalized as a British citizen, in 1805. The design drew on John Anthony's journey, exploring the fusion of architectural styles and materiality between east and west as well as colonial architecture blurred with eastern detailing, to create a British tea hall turned Chinese canteen. All the lighting and most of the furniture for this project were custom designed, in-house, working with local craftsmen. Expect the unexpected with progressive cooking techniques, globally sourced ingredients and unique harmonies in flavor, accompanies with striking design.
