An admirable miscellany of inspiring finds from around the globe.

Restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse

Restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse and Restaurant Le Dalí at Hôtel Le Meurice, Paris, have been recently revamped by designer by designer Philippe Starck, while the multi-Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse has designed a whole new menu for each restaurant to complement the revitalized design. The new design and menu both celebrate his culinary philosophy, guided by the watchwords of excellence, elegance and experience.

The chef preserves the authentic flavours of exceptional ingredients. The excellence of ingredients and technical mastery form the foundations of la cuisine de l’essentiel, an idea Alain Ducasse cherishes.

Hôtel Le Maurice Restaurant Le Dalí

Alain Ducasse has created a new menu of contemporary cuisine, designed to be shared or served in half portions for light aperitif dining. Under the talented direction of Executive Chef Jocelyn Herland, enjoy a selection of Parisian brasserie dishes or take a creative culinary journey of delicious Mediterranean cuisine.

Le Dalí is a very Parisian place to be seen, as well as a cosy, welcoming hideaway. Philippe Starck already left his mark here in 2007 and has now initiated a second aesthetic exploration. As if to answer Dalí himself, who said “ my entire life is determined by two conflicting ideas: the top and the bottom ”, the designer plunges into the space’s depths, both vertically and horizontally.

Buster + Punch LED Bulb

With energy consumption rising to unprecedented highs, governments across the world passed measures to phase out incandescent & filament light bulbs in favour of more energy-efficient lighting alternatives.

Two years ago, Buster + Punch in London set themselves the challenge to be the first independent design label to produce the worlds first designer LED bulb and to achieve two things. First was to make LED sexy. Second was to create a more useful light bulb that would give off both an ambient warm glow and a focused spot light - something never achieved by a single light bulb before. The BUSTER bulb raises the bar in lighting technologies. A bulb so elegant in design and light quality, LED is finally having it’s ‘moment’.

QT Sydney

'Eclectic, quirky, beguiling' and 'surprising' are just a few words that naturally come to mind when staying at Sydney's QT Hotel - as Yarubar did this Summer. The property, which melds two of Sydney’s grandest and most prominent historical buildings - the State Theatre and Gowings on Market & George Streets - is a unique mix of pure theatrics, grandeur and cutting edge technology. With its sumptuous, dramatic interiors - featuring much original architecture - bespoke furniture and wonderful collection of art, QT delivers a highly unique experience. More than this, the hotel's staff are possibly the most charming we've met to date - especially the bewigged, red haired greeters who describe themselves as 'Directors of Chaos'. How very QT. With lifts that talk to you (‘Hasta la vista baby' on exiting) and other highly unexpected treats, the final word we'd use for QT Sydney is 'charming'.
