Zetter Townhouse – London

The Zetter Townhouse is one of those boxes I haven’t ticked yet, but I hope I will very soon. At least for a few drinks, I am sure it is definitely worth it. This Georgian Townhouse has only 11 rooms and two suites. It is a quirky and eclectic hotel, perfect for a different London experience….

PET lamp at Vinçon

Every time I visit Barcelona, I like to walk down Paseig de Gràcia and stroll around Vinçon. This shop is a design institution in the city. The building itself is a wonderful piece from 1899, designed by Antoni Rovira i Rabassa and it was owned by the famous painter Ramón Casas. Vinçon is one of those…

Designer Zoo – Copenhagen

During my trip to Copenhagen I tried to visit as many interesting shops as I could. There are plenty of quirky and small shops around the city centre, but Designer Zoo is worth crossing the sex shops of Vesterbro into the “new hipster” bit of Copenhagen. This shop is a very interesting guild of designers, mostly ceramic,…

Terrace in Barcelona – Casa Gracia

It’s been quite a while since the last post. This time of the year is the busiest and most hectic. But Hunt for Design is back. This time I want to show you a small project in Barcelona. Casa Gracia is one of the coolest hostels in the city, if not the coolest one. Jardinets…

Ibérica Marylebone – Spanish tapas & design

I was due a visit to Ibérica Marylebone a long time ago. I tend to avoid Spanish food outside Spain, as it is generally overpriced and tiny portions. The tapas culture allows you to have a very nice meal trying many different dishes, but in previous experiences the restaurants serve two meatballs or a stupid toast…

Indoor Plants

As I mentioned in a previous post, when referring to the workplace, plants contribute to our wellbeing even if we are not aware of it. Not only the workplace but your own house will be enhanced by some nice plants. There is a tendency in interior design to avoid any living plants and use only…

Boo – Barcelona

Another interesting finding from Barcelona, highly recommended by The Hunter: Boo – Fashion Selection of unique pieces with heritage. This shop stands out for its design and atmosphere. Alex is the owner and creative mind behind the shop decoration. It is not a huge space but he made the most of it. Black envelops everything,…

Lane Crawford – Hong Kong headquarters

A happy employee is a productive one. There is no doubt about it, our working environment is a determinant factor of how good we perform. This philosophy should be much more common than it really is. Think about Google and their offices which look almost like a kindergarten classroom. That’s why big companies, fighting for…

Interview with Antony Poels (Sculpture)

Antony kindly agreed to my request for an interview and here it is. . Antony Poels was born in Surrey and has lived in Worcestershire since 1978. Amongst…

Jonathan Adler – Pottery

I discovered Jonathan Adler’s work very recently when I visited his shop on Sloane Avenue. But he is a very well known potter, designer and author. In his shop I found lots of interesting pieces, not only pottery but cool rugs and furniture. I would define it as fun and colourful. He launched the first…

Hotel Missoni – Edinburgh

Last week I stayed in the most fashionable hotel in Edinburgh. Ever since it opened in 2009, Hotel Missoni has become a place to see and to be seen. The location couldn’t be better, overlooking the Royal Mile.

Christmas shopping

Again this time of the year! And some hardcore shopping to do for many. I have to say I am more of a selective shopper and never buy something because I have to. Another key detail, expensive doesn’t mean better. Having said that, I never set foot in a shopping centre. I’d rather walk around…
