An admirable miscellany of inspiring finds from around the globe.

Falling Back To Earth by Cai Guo-Qiang

Cai Guo-Qiang's solo exhibition, ‘Falling Back to Earth’, at the Queensland Art Gallery features three major installations, including two newly commissioned works directly inspired by the landscapes of southeast Queensland, which the artist visited in 2011. The centrepiece of the exhibition - Heritage (2013) - features 99 replicas of animals from around the world, gathered together to drink from a blue lake surrounded by pristine white sand. The second installation, Eucalyptus (2013) responds to the ancient trees of Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast hinterland, while the third - Head On (2006) - is a striking installation of 99 artificial wolves leaping en masse into a glass wall, on display in Australia for the first time.

Jing Yaa Tang - Beijing

Jing Yaa Tang is a Swire Hotels‘ collaboration with internationally-recognised restaurateur Alan Yau as lead designer and concept consultant. It marks Alan's first entry into Beijing and Mainland China. Jing Yaa Tang introduces a selection of Beijing roast duck dishes, simply prepared and expertly executed. The menu will extend to Chinese regional favourites. The restaurant is set within a striking contemporary Chinoiserie theatrical style design which opens into a central social dining space. Design accents reveal layers of dark lacquer application with plum and burnt orange detailing and ornamental highlights to capture and intrigue. Elevated dining viewing platforms run parallel on each side of the central area replicating a theatre itself.

BOX by Bot & Dolly

"Box" explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. They believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.

The Collection by Simon Gudgeon

The Collection is the latest range from leading British sculptor Simon Gudgeon, best known for his very large scale, minimalist forms inspired by encounters with the natural world. The Collection offers smaller versions of the large editions that he has become recognised for, including Isis and Search for Enlightenment, which stand in Hyde Park and at One Hyde Park, London, respectively, and Pheasant and Lyrebird, both in situ at Gudgeon’s celebrated Dorset sculpture park, Sculpture by the Lakes.

Eagle Low Drag GT

The Eagle Speedster is world renowned for a re-interpretation of the car that Enzo Ferrari described as “the most beautiful car in the world”; the Jaguar E-Type. As a dedicated open sports car, the Speedster lacks touring practicality but Eagle have addressed this with their latest creation; The Low Drag GT. A purposeful high performance continental touring E-Type with styling taking the best from the three original ‘Low Drag Coupes’ that were built in the 1960’s. All aluminum lightweight body is combined with Eagle’s high torque 4.7 litre engine. Practical solutions missing from the original race-cars have been discretely included with high quality luxurious bespoke finishes and precise execution throughout. Production will be limited to just a few.
