NetJets, a Berkshire Hathaway company, unveiled a new installation with artist Frida Fjellman in Basel to celebrate the start of Art Basel. NetJets has been an Associate Partner of Art Basel for sixteen years. Ahead of the Basel show opening, the private aviation firm chose to work with Frida Fjellman, a critically acclaimed Swedish Craft Artist, in creating an innovative installation on display at the NetJets VIP lounge in the Art Basel Collectors Lounge.

Frida Fjellman’s piece ‘Crystal Atmosphere’ commissioned by NetJets for Art Basel 2017

Frida Fjellman is one of Sweden’s most prominent Craft Artists. Her hyperreal creations in ceramic and glass blur the lines between the disciplines of Craft and Fine Art and transports the viewer into a dreamlike world of myths and fables. Frida was commissioned by NetJets to create deliver an eye-catching installation that complemented the notion of air travel along with recognising the company’s engagement with design and art.

Fjellman decided to reimagine the ceiling of the NetJets VIP lounge around the theme of a Crystal Atmosphere. The installation incorporates approximately 100 glass prisms of different sizes and colours that are all hung at different heights creating a dreamlike atmosphere where the visitor automatically becomes a participant among the glass crystals. Frida worked closely with the Boda Glass factory to create the installation. Located in the famous glass blowing town of Boda Glasbruk, in Småland, Southern Sweden, the region is known as the Kingdom of Crystal and has been producing glass since the 18th century. The installation took over two months to create and each individual prism was created by hand by the skilled master glassblowers of Boda Glasbruk, each of whom have over 15 years’ experience in the craft.

Frida Fjellman’s piece ‘Crystal Atmosphere’ commissioned by NetJets for Art Basel 2017

I was interested in exploring the almost magical sense of tranquility that you experience when cruising above the clouds – flying is perhaps one of the few oasis of calm in our increasingly interconnected digital society. Crystal Atmosphere was designed to impart a sense of calm to the viewer as well as to intrigue and fascinate, making the visitor reflect and take a step back from their everyday lives. I hope that this will be a memorable and unexpected experience for the guests. said Frida Fjellman

Philip Baer, Regional Vice President, NetJets Europe commented: “Art Basel in Basel is an annual highlight for our Owners, both in Europe and across the globe, many of whom are avid art collectors and enthusiasts. NetJets has supported Art Basel in Basel since 2002 and our long-running involvement is testament to the show’s continued position as the world’s leading platform for Modern and contemporary art. This year we wanted to take our partnership with Art Basel one step further and through our collaboration with Frida, NetJets continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing innovative and exceptional experiences for our customers”.

Every year NetJets creates a six-day event at Art Basel in Basel and Art Basel in Miami Beach with their VIP lounge providing owners with hospitality throughout the week, as well as access to the show during the VIP days. The aviation firm saw flight traffic to Basel increase around 19% between 2015 and 2016 and this year is expecting in excess of 90 flights.

* 47% of consumers would view a business more favorably if it served high quality coffee
* Millennials are six times more likely to view a business harshly, while men are twice as likely to take their business elsewhere if served poor quality coffee

Businesses are being urged to take a fresh look at their coffee offer to delight their customers and improve the customer experience. The call to improve the services on offer follows new research, commissioned by Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) Professional, that reveals 72% of consumers expect to be served a hot beverage when making a significant purchase or when seeking professional advice.

The survey of 1,000 consumers, revealed at the launch of JDE’s new Promesso coffee solution, also highlighted the power of coffee to make an unforgettable first impression, with one in two consumers likely to view a business favourably if it served high-quality coffee in the lobby or reception area. The research also showed that men are twice as likely to take their business elsewhere if businesses neglect their coffee offering, while millennials are six times more likely to take a negative view of a business as a result.

Image result for coffee

“Coffee plays a significant role in consumers’ lives and provides those all-important moments of relaxation and indulgence,” explained Heike Wiesner, JDE Professional. “Businesses need to examine how high-quality coffee can be one of the subtle nuances that puts them ahead of the competition, and change how their customers view them. It’s important not to risk disappointing your customers by taking a chance on your coffee offer.”

Consumers’ appreciation of the breadth of coffee styles and flavours has dramatically increased, resulting in coffee overtaking tea as the nation’s favourite hot beverage. In the UK, more than 21 million cups[iii] are consumed each day out of home and there is an expectation for high quality and variety, regardless of the location.

To create the opportunity for customers to enjoy the personalisation and service that they have come to expect – irrespective of where they are – a high-quality coffee solution is needed. JDE’s Promesso offers businesses just that. Recognised by the Red Dot Awards for product design, Promesso impressed the judges who said it ’embodied an entirely new generation of fully automatic coffee makers’. Its ‘stylistic idiom that skilfully borrows elements from the era of Art Deco, blending with modern details’, unprecedented coffee personalisation and clearly designed touchscreen fascinated the judges, who described it as ‘elegant to handle in office environments’. Its perfect combination of functionality and quality is combined with effortless interaction and ease of use. No training is needed and it’s easy to maintain, requiring no more than seven minutes per week to clean, just 13% of the time needed to service fully automatic espresso machines.

It offers consumers fresh-bean quality coffee, tailored to each consumer’s personal taste, serving up to 130 cups per hour using JDE’s Promesso Blend No.1. Made from the finest selection of 100% Arabica beans, Promesso Blend No.1 is optimised for an Espresso coffee taste profile. This characterful, UTZ Certified sustainable coffee carefully combines roasted notes with rich aromas for a deep, well-balanced taste with a sweet nuance and is at the heart of Promesso’s personalised offering. For example, Promesso enables users to customise every element of their favourite hot beverage by adjusting the strength, volume and even coffee to milk ratio. Favourite beverages can even be saved to a personal profile, making it easy to access personalised drinks at a touch of a button.

“Consumers are all different – they have their individual style, personal tastes and unique character – and this drives their desire for a coffee that meet their needs and mood, no matter the activity or location,” explained Wiesner. “Promesso is a coffee solution that is smart, innovative and takes care of itself. As businesses look to improve their customer service and stand out from the competition, the coffee they choose to serve could be that all important differentiator. Promesso is ideal for businesses in the corporate and hospitality sectors looking to serve premium quality coffee without the hassle and training required by more complicated coffee solutions.

“It allows businesses to surprise and impress customers with a high-quality coffee shop experience, that surpasses their expectations, improves customer service and enhances consumer’s perceptions of the business. It means businesses across the corporate, hospitality and leisure sectors can treat their customers to a hot beverage experience that offers the quality to impress and consistency to deliver the perfect coffee, in every cup. With eight varieties of premium hot beverages on offer, and endless personalisation options, businesses and their customers no longer have to compromise.”

A fashion initiative launches next month at Embargo 59 on the Kings Road to encourage body confidence among young disabled adults.The stylish Kings Road bar is celebrating Fashion Week (14th-18th February 2014) with a special cocktail collection that will be available for seven days only.

Each drink sold will raise £1 for the Find My Style project run by charity Flamingo Foundation (www.flamingofoundation.org,) funding personal styling sessions for young disabled adults.The sessions are led by personal stylist and master image consultant Hannah Jean, who will be working with participants to explore fashion, style and body confidence and adapting items of clothing.

 

At just 26, Hannah became the youngest director to be voted on to the board of the Federation of Image Professionals International which accredits the image industry internationally. She says, “Image and confidence in what we wear can make a huge difference, but young disabled people can feel removed from the fashion scene and find it difficult to find on-trend clothes that suit their style and their body.

“This project is a fantastic way to open up the world of fashion and demonstrate that everyone can find or adapt clothes to show off their individuality and tastes.”

The cocktails are:

Shake Your Tail Feather – A romantic, decadent and dreamy drink that positively encourages a wiggle of those tail feathers. Taking inspiration from flamingo feathers seen on the catwalks, this is a fruity, punchy cocktail that is perfect for those who want to dance the night away.  With Havana Club Especial or Bacardi Superior rum, fresh lime, mint, sugar, peach liqueur and fresh peach are muddled over crushed ice and topped with soda.

Moody Blooms – Florals are everywhere for spring/summer 2014 but they have had a serious makeover. Gone are the days or pretty posies – for next season think tattoo art and 3D blossoms. Garnished with edible petals, this is a summer garden in a glass. Crème de pêche and Stolichnaya vodka are mixed with apple juice and grenadine. Topped with champagne and finished with an edible flower.

Fancy Fondants – Pastel shades are all the rage, especially when worn head-to-toe for a big hit of girly style. This cocktail embraces that ultimate in pastel confection and recreates the sweet taste in a pumped-up drink. Kwai Feh lychee liqueur and Stolichnaya Vanil vodka are shaken with fresh lychees, passion fruit syrup, apple and lemon juices.

All That Glistens – Shiny fabrics are expected to be everywhere, and this cocktail maintains the look with a cool shimmer that looks as good as it tastes. Bacardi Superior rum is blended with crushed ice and lime juice and you can choose from a selection of fruits to enhance the taste.

Sheerly Temple – Transparent and flimsy fabrics are key next season so be prepared to flash the flesh. Everything should be see-through, so this clever cocktail keeps things simple with first-class ingredients.  Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey and Luxardo amaretto liqueur are shaken with hazelnut syrup and apple and cranberry juices.

The Square Root – Checks, tartans and squares are definitely the must-have print for spring/summer 2014. Get the look in your glass too with a layered cocktail that combines a whole host of flavours. Makers Mark whisky, fresh lemon juice, Angostura Bitters and sugar syrup are shaken hard and served over ice.

English Rose – Pink, in all its shades, is the key colour for the season. From palest salmon to dusky damask, flirty fuschia to bright bubblegum, every outfit should have at least one bit of pink. Hendrick’s gin and Bottle Green elderflower cordial are shaken with apple juice and crushed raspberries.

“Bringing together fashion and cocktails to support this wonderful project is a real privilege for us,” says Simon Downwood, General Manager at Embargo 59.

“The new drinks taste and look amazing and we’re excited that young disabled people will be able to explore and enjoy fashion trends with the help of Hannah and Find My Style.”

Embargo 59 has become an institution among Chelsea’s elite clubbers and is one of the hottest nightclubs for spotting the latest fashions. With its unique and heady combination of glamour, serious partying and must-have style, it is the place to be seen.

In Sydney’s famous outdoor venue The Domain, two fantastic free events are set to delight, kicking off with Chicago’s R’n’B, soul and disco diva Chaka Khan on the opening weekend, and Sydney Symphony Orchestra performing Gustav Holst‘s astrological suite The Planets, conducted by Hamburg State Opera Artistic Director Simone Young, in Symphony in the Domain.

 

Against a backdrop of some of the world’s greatest theatre and dance, new Australian works of magnitude and cultural importance dominate this year’s theatre program. The world premiere of Black Diggers (directed by Wesley Enoch and written by Tom Wright) unfolds the untold stories of 1000 Indigenous soldiers who fought in World War One, whilst Michael Kantor and Tom E. Lewis’ indigenous re-working of King Lear in The Shadow King has recently premiered to a rousing reception by audiences in Melbourne, Australia.

A highlight of the 2014 program is Henry Purcell‘s romantic tragedy Dido & Aeneas in Sasha Waltz‘s wondrous reimagining of the great opera, featuring stunning choreography, a prologue performed in a giant fish tank underwater, and celebrated Baroque orchestra Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin.

Internationally acclaimed choreographer Shaun Parker returns to Sydney Festival with the world premiere of Am I, whilst Halina Reijn performs the lead role in the retelling of the 1927 monologue by Jean Cocteau in La Voix Humaine. Philip Glass presents a live score to Godfrey Reggio‘s Visitors following its premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and after a five month sell out season on London’s Southbank LIMBO returns to heat up the 1920s Speigeltent in the wildly expanded Festival Village.

In Parramatta in Sydney’s west, the favourite free event Parramatta Opening Party is back with free music and festival fun, and everyone’s favourite yellow friend Rubber Duck is back too!

For the first time in a 100 years, 28 artist studios in the exclusive Bolton Conservation Area in Chelsea, London  are available for sale.

Discreetly nestled between the expansive crescents of Gilston and Redcliffe Roads, SW10, the quiet, tree-lined enclave of Bolton Studios is among one of London most prestigious residential addresses. Built in the late 19th century, the artists studios have been carefully renovated into double height, galleried, one and two bedroom apartments. The studios have been developed by the  Realstar group in collaboration with Grantham, who have overseen all design aspects of Bolton Studios in order to maximise natural light, living and storage space. Amenities include a concierge service and there are secluded communal gardens, only accessible to Boltons homeowners.

Ed Lewis, Savills head of London Residential Development Sales, who is marketing the properties says:  ‘’The Bolton Studios are a relic from Chelsea’s artistic past that are being transformed into Chelsea’s future.  Owners will be able to enjoy living in one of London’s most valuable residential areas of London in a loft style space that will be the envy of their contemporaries.”

Ryan Prince, Realstar Group, says:  “We feel fortunate and excited to bring these historic artist studios into the 21st century.  We’ve strived to create a living environment which is both contemporary and highly functional.  Although you’re only a stone’s throw from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of the Fulham Road, the gardens of Gilston Road provide an absolute sense of peace and quiet.”

Bolton Studios available from £1.265 million, available through Savills

Editors Letter for Chelsea Monthly’s 3rd anniversary issue!

Welcome to our 29th issue of Chelsea Monthly and our third anniversary! Yes, the luxury and lifestyle magazine which was launched merely a few years ago by the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea turns 3 this year. Apart from planning a perfect celebration to end all celebrations, we have also been busy interviewing, travelling and sampling some of the greatest restaurants, hotels, and destinations to give you a firsthand experience right from the horse’s mouth. Excuse the pun! We also send our Travel Editor to the fantastic island of Mauritius to fully experience what the Luxury Heritage Resorts has on offer and as soon as he stepped back into London. He was sent back on a mission yet again to Ibiza to uncover the luxury side to the famous island. Not content, with travel our food journos have also been carefully selecting some of the finest exclusive restaurants in London. From Nipa to Naga, the new Red House in Chelsea to Giglamesh we got it covered with pages and pages of what can only be described as food to live for! We figured there’ll be a need for a decent rest and why not rest like a king or queen. So we embarked on a search to discover some of London’s unusual luxury hotels all offering their version of eccentric, unique and luxury all rolled into one. Our events team has also been hard at work, successfully completing the planning, organising, and delivery of the 1st annual British Young Business Awards together with Business Secretary of State, MP Vince Cable. Over 15,000 entrepreneurs took part in the voting and a total of 450 attended the actual awards at the prestigious Mayfair Hotel. Busy, wasn’t the word last month. We also gave birth to a sister publication in the other side of London. Camden Monthly Newspaper was launched but shhhhhh… we are secretly in a friendly competition so good luck to the staff across the pond but this is Chelsea Monthly so we do thinks slightly differently here!

Back to this issue, we touch base with music superstar Jessie J and welcome back Kate Nash to the fold whilst more importantly concentrating all our efforts on celebrating the arrival of a new royal baby. Congratulations to Prince William and Kate Middleton. Gone are the days, were Prince William and I used to party at the good old Boujis in London. The young man is now growing up to be a ‘young man’ and quite rightly so as we dedicate our third anniversary front cover to the rise and rise of the humble Prince!

Sticking with the royals, in our Out & About section we catch up with Prince Harry at a special charity polo event in the US and celebrate the 270th anniversary of Moet & Chandon a much loved Champagne here in the office and I assume by millions out there in the big old world. Apart from planning our next big National Luxury & Lifestyle Awards in conjunction with the Z-Phone by Zuricom. It’s clear to see that we are consistently hard at work to bring you our readers the best and northing but the best! Until next time let’s raise a Moet & Chandon glass of champagne to our 3rd year in existence, the birth of a new royal, the nominees & winners of BYBA 2013 and obviously as we sip our champagne the final big cheers goes to the 270th anniversary of Moet & Chandon… Until next time. Enjoy!
