The ’MP4-X’ concept was established to harness Mclaren’s vision for the future of motorsport technology by employing alternative power sources, adaptable chassis and computer systems that can communicate in the event of a failure or problem. The formula one team equipped the concept with the most cutting edge technological solutions that exist in the world today to create a race car that could exist in the distant future.

In the world of sailing, Swan yachts are called “the Rolls Royce of the sea.” Many of their owners regard them as works of art (“my Picasso”), not just because of their cost, between fifteen and twenty million euros, but also and above all for their uniqueness. The latest project of the Finnish yard, run since 1998 by Leonardo Ferragamo, is the 115-footer, designed by German Frérs. The first boat to touch the water (of the four built so far) was Solleone, owned by the Italian businessman.

Located in Wadi Abou Jamil at the western periphery of Beirut’s city center, the design of this 1,200-square-meter penthouse by MiaSKAMLA was primarily driven by the desire to create airy spaces that would unite comfort with a minimalist feel, while simultaneously embracing the home’s superb geographic location by taking full advantage of its peripheral views. The main entrance opens up into a vast living room, a formal reception space, as well as the dining room. Fully-glazed and unpartitioned, this area enjoys natural light and floor-to-ceiling views of the sea, city and Mount Lebanon.

SuperNikka is one of the few custom-built boats to have been produced in Italy in 2015, constructed by one of the country’s outstanding yards, Vismara Marine, and signed by the Irish studio Mills Design.

The hotel’s design is the brainchild of commercial photographer Johan Hellström. The building stands out against the surrounding landscape while at the same time acting as a natural extension of it, reflecting the former quarry’s shapes and colors. Hellström’s re-imagining of the factory’s existing infrastructure began with the crumbling worker’s canteen. He and his wife renovated the space to include 18 rooms, using recycled local materials such as limestone, concrete and hardwood.
