USO – The Perfumed Cloud at Louvre Abu Dhabi

An Art Installation Created by Cartier’s In-house Perfumer Mathilde Laurent

Exhibition Period: From Now to Feb 1st

From now to 1 February 2020, in parallel with the exhibition 10,000 Years of Luxury, Louvre Abu Dhabi presents an olfactory art installation entitled USO – The Perfumed Cloud (USO: Unidentified Scented Object), created by Cartier’s in-house perfumer, Mathilde Laurent, and Transsolar KlimaEngineering.

 

In line with the museum’s mission to propose innovative experiences, this installation offers a magical sensory journey through a cloud of perfume. Visitors are invited to enter a transparent glass cube resting on water to climb a spiral staircase that leads above a floating cloud.

Previously presented on the forecourt of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2017, USO – The Perfumed Cloud is a unique immersive installation combining immaterial architecture, sensoriality and the prowess of climate technology.

 

Indeed, the installation—inspired by L’Envol de Cartier, created by Mathilde Laurent in 2016—rests on a delicate balance: the superposition of three layers of air of different temperatures inside a glass cube. The cloud comes clearly into focus in the space between the lower layer of cold air the upper layer of hot air. The perfume released can thus be discovered above the cloud, at the top of the stairway.

 

“USO – The Perfumed Cloud”
Exhibition 10,000 Years of Luxury, Louvre Abu Dhabi

Dates: From now to February 1, 2020

Open: Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
Thursday and Friday from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm

Closed: Mondays

Furla meets Kiki and Lala, the Little Twin Stars

Kiki and Lala are legendary figures created by Sanrio along with Hello Kitty.

Kiki and Lala are two twin stars born on 24 December 1975 on Omoiyari Star in the Yume Star-Cloud. They have travelled a long way to Earth to learn how to be the best, shiniest stars, they can be. Lala is the eldest, though a little timid. She loves drawing and writing poems and is a great cook! Kiki is filled with curiosity about everything, which makes him a little cheeky sometimes. He loves star-fishing and inventing things.

After the success garnered by its capsule collections dedicated to Hello Kitty, Furla presents a new project: “Furla Little Twin Stars”, the two most iconic and successful Sanrio characters, loved and celebrated all over the world.

A joyful product proposal, animated by three prints with the Little Twins and floral motifs in baby blue, white and baby pink shades.

The prints come to life on the Metropolis, Furla’s iconic crossbody bag in Ares calfskin for the small size and in saffiano for the Mini size, with its classic gold colored metal chain and closure, with the addition of the personalized flap with Kiki and Lala’s faces.

Pouches and cosmetic cases in two sizes (medium and large), coin cases and cardholders in printed saffiano leather complete the collection.

The “Furla Little Twin Stars” collections will arrive in Furla stores in January 2020, with a preview in China, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, and Australia, and from 15 January in selected Furla flagship stores worldwide. Hong Kong and Macau will be launched the collection from January 3rd, 2020.

QANTAS OPENS DOORS TO BRAND NEW LUXURY FIRST LOUNGE IN SINGAPORE

Qantas has officially opened its newest First Lounge, a luxury space spread over 1,000 square metres at Singapore’s Changi Airport.

The new First Lounge will operate in tandem alongside the airline’s existing International Business Lounge, providing capacity for 240 customers and a bespoke offering for Qantas’ First Class passengers and top tier frequent flyers.

The new build was designed by Australian designer David Caon in collaboration with Kelvin Ho of architecture and design firm Akin Atelie and features a number of Singaporean influences across the look and feel of the lounge as well as the food and beverage offering.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the opening of the new lounge is a reflection of the airline’s extensive premium investment in the region.

“Since our A380 flights have returned to Singapore, we’ve seen an increase in demand for premium travel which has also translated to an increase in the number of travellers enjoying our lounge hospitality.

“This is our fourth Qantas First Lounge, and each time we build an entire new lounge facility from scratch, we speak to our frequent flyers to get a better understanding of how customers like to spend their time in the lounge and tailor it accordingly. Our customers told us their key priorities when travelling through or from Singapore is space to relax and do some last-minute work, a quick shower, and a meal before departure so they can maximise their sleep onboard.”

Qantas Creative Director of Food, Beverage and Service Neil Perry said the dining experience is inspired by Singapore’s vibrant culinary culture.

“The Singapore food scene is one of my favourites in the world. The iconic hawker markets and fine dining restaurants inspired us to design a menu that gives customers an authentic taste of Singapore without leaving the airport,” said Mr. Perry.

“Singapore cuisine has an incredible balance of flavoursome ingredients which influenced new signature dishes like the grilled skate in browned sambal butter with capers.

“Customers visit the First Lounge at different stages of their trip, so we included items like poached eggs with mushrooms and salsa verde on sourdough and First Lounge classics like the chicken club sandwich with salt and pepper squid, intended to cater to our customer and their taste buds regardless of where they are on their journey,” added Mr. Perry.

David Caon said, “We wanted customers to feel a sense of calming luxury as soon as they walk in to the First Lounge, so we combined some of the classic Qantas First Lounge design features, such as the prominent marble and oak seen in the Sydney First Lounge, and added an authentic Singaporean twist featuring plenty of greenery.”

Dining and Bar

An open kitchen will serve up a Rockpool a la carte seasonal menu designed with Singapore’s vibrant dining culture in mind. Local delicacies like a signature tea smoked duck breast with pickled cabbage and Chinese mustard and a laksa with crayfish, bok choy and fried shallots, along with customer favourites such as the Salt and pepper squid with green chili sauce.

The lounge also features a cocktail bar with lounge seating, serving French champagne, seasonal spritzes, unique cocktails inspired by Singapore, like a Calamansi Mojito – made from the local Calamansi fruit, Singaporean & Australian beer – and a variety of Australian wine. View Singapore First Lounge Menu here.

Non-alcoholic healthy beverages such as kefir and kombucha, barley water and a Rockpool ‘House Lemonade’ are available, along with all day barista service with Vittoria coffee and as election of savoury bar snacks and fruit.

Wellness

Wellness continues to be a major inspiration and the new Qantas First Lounge brings the outside in. Live greenery features throughout the lounge to soften the space and bolster the atmosphere, while the use of natural materials and colour palettes is designed to help relax customers.

A unique faux ‘skylight’ in the shower suites and lounge area will replicate natural daylight and help adjust the body clock as customers transition through multiple time zones.

Workspace

Business travellers have the choice to work in an open, communal setting or individual lounge chairs with high dividers. USB and charging ports are located throughout the lounge, with wireless printing, Wi-Fi and TV screens for customers to stay charged and connected.

The new premium space is Qantas’ fourth First Lounge across its global network, joining Sydney, Melbourne, and Los Angeles. The opening is part of the multi-million-dollar investment for customers on its Singapore services and complements the expanded Qantas International Business lounge at Changi, which combined now offers seating for more than 800 customers.

The most popular cocktail served at the Qantas Lounge in Singapore is Calamansi Mojito, the most requested coffee is a latte and the most requested dish to date is the crayfish laska with more than 70 expected to be served per day.

All proceeds from sales of the stockings will be donated to THE ONE which awards US$205,000+ to three exceptional humanitarians every year. The funds have enabled awardees to build mobile ambulances, schools, medical centres, homes for the needy, and provide food, water and medicine to tens of thousands.

“We’re extremely grateful to have the support of JOYCE and so many renowned designers and creators. Each stocking is as unique as the humanitarians we honour and help. The proceeds will support heroes who lift individuals, children and families out of poverty and suffering every day.” – David Harilela, Founder and Global Chair of THE ONE.
