Sandworm is an organic structure/space/creature realized on the dunes of the Wenduine coastline, Belgium.

A Hanukkah Celebration That Riffs On the New Eatery’s Menu

Marking the festival of lights, Ben Murphy’s still lifes of schmaltzed radishes, bagels and half-sour pickles set amid rarefied tableware are inspired by English restaurateur Russell Norman’s newest endeavor, Mishkin’s. A charming homage to the vanishing world of London’s east end cafes of the 30s and 40s, Norman’s “kind-of Jewish deli with cocktails” mixes in themes from New York’s Lower East Side.
