With roots in England and offices in London and New York, Bryan O’Sullivan Studio works with clients around the world to create contemporary and enjoyable design that is both elegant and eclectic. Informed by O’Sullivan’s encyclopedic knowledge of design and architecture, projects span residential, hospitality, restaurants, bars and yachts. The hallmark of the design studio is a simple and authentic glamor inspired by classic French and Italian architects of the 1940s, 50s and 60s, but always on the lookout for something new.

What was it like coming back to your hometown of Kenmare for the Park Hotel revamp? The Park Hotel has always been a marker of special occasions for me, so it was amazing to have the opportunity to work on a space that I held so close. Although I have lived overseas for nearly 20 years, I still call Kenmare home. This is the place that motivates me the most.

How would you describe the style of the Park Hotel in Kenmare? As I already loved the Park Hotel so much, I was very conscious not to interfere with the traditional style for which it is known and loved. It was rather to update it with benevolence. John and Francis Brennan, the two brothers who own the hotel, have spent many years collecting the antiques and works of art inside the hotel. These provided an excellent starting point.

What is the process for a renovation of this nature? Is there a certain element you start with? Because of my background in architecture, that’s often where we start, and this project was no exception. Through this process, we realized that the restoration of the interior terrace allowed for a new connection between the living room and the restaurant, as well as an opportunity to build an interior window. Thus, the piano can now be heard in all evening rooms. We also discovered various opportunities that would bring in natural light and brighten up the spaces.

Kenmare is quite different from London and other cities where you often work. How did geography play a role in your design? The views from the Park Hotel are breathtaking and for this reason the lounge bow window became a real focal point during the refurbishment. We introduced a curved banquette to make it a feature of the room, and we pulled the curtains outside the reveal to ensure light and views were both maximized and framed. Likewise, the antique mirror in the champagne bar ensures everyone has a glimpse no matter which direction you’re facing!

How did you first become interested in design? I have always been very interested in art and design from an early age. My grandfather had a construction company and used to hand draw floor plans. I remember hanging around his office mimicking his sketches. Art has always been my favorite subject in school. I used to skip class and go to the art room where my teacher let me hide and doodle and paint.

What trends have you noticed in design? There is more emphasis on craftsmanship and manufacturing and moving away from mass production. There are so many talented artisans and specialists and incorporating their skills into a piece of furniture or an interior can transform the room or space. There’s also so much trash these days that we really try to design spaces and rooms that are meant to last from this generation to the next and beyond.

The Mill started hosting pop-ups in other cities and was considering a permanent space in Delhi before the pandemic hit. Now that spending has focused on e-commerce, with the launch of a content-rich website.

Let’s be phygital

Niche brands outside of India face a difficult task in negotiating the complex and potentially costly balance between physical and digital retail. Local expertise is essential. The Collective, an Indian multi-brand retailer launched in 2009 by the fashion division of conglomerate Aditya Birla Group, aims to provide a strong platform offering both options to brands.

The Collective is now a major player in multi-brand luxury, selling more than 85 brands in stores in 11 cities and also via e-commerce. “Online has helped customers better discover niche brands,” says Amit Pande, brand manager at The Collective. “Our content strategy helps people engage with niche brands a lot more. It helps now that India is Instagram’s biggest market.

A key brand is Kenzo, first launched by The Collective in 2016. The Kenzo Tiger pattern is a consistent bestseller, while around 30% of Kenzo’s sales in India are now online.

Reliance Brands Limited (RBL), India’s largest player in the luxury market, has partnerships with more than 60 luxury brands, including big names Tiffany, Burberry and Giorgio Armani, among others. Last year, the company launched Aijo Luxe, its own e-commerce platform, which has 265 brands. “There is a huge untapped opportunity as the Indian consumer is hungry for globally recognized niche luxury brands,” says Sumeet Yadav, Group Vice Chairman, Reliance Brands Limited. “They fill a need because sometimes these brands are able to reflect a consumer’s personality in a way that mainstream luxury brands cannot.”

Aijo Luxe brands include Stella McCartney, Cult Gaia and Isabel Marant, with Veja Shoes, Marc Jacobs and Alice + Olivia joining the mix this year. Yadav says that while online is important for building brand recognition, some form of physical presence is imperative for sales.

The White Crow has stores in eight cities and stocks various brands, including Salvatore Ferragamo.

furniture dealer France takes up 19,000 square feet of space to 181 Madison Avenuebrokers for confirmed deal.

The brand plans to leave its flagship location at 151 Wooster Street behind for the former Midtown location of Domus design centerwho recently moved to 134 Madison Avenue, according to New York Postwho first reported the deathI.

The new location will give Poltrona Frau 8,000 square feet on the ground floor and an additional 11,000 square feet on the lower level when it opens in early 2023.

Andrew Kahn, Chris Stanon, Fanny Fan and Jack Pfalzgraf of Cushman and Wakefield represented both the owner, APF propertiesand the tenant in the transaction.

C&W declined to provide terms of the deal, but said corner locations in NoMad range from $175 to $250 per square foot. The APF did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The 275,496 square foot mixed-use building at 181 Madison features both office and retail space, along with a 169-foot wrap-around frontage and 17-foot ceiling heights.

The famous 19-story Art Deco building was previously owned by Tishman Spire and The Cogswell-Lee Development Group – who bought it in 2014 for $185 million – before the APF picks it up.

Founded in 1912, Poltrona Frau has been headquartered in Tolentino, Italy since the 1960s. Although known for its distinctive handmade designs, it is perhaps best known for manufacturing custom luxury seating for yachts, cars and planes.

It also designs seating for high-end theaters, auditoriums and showrooms.

Having been featured in places such as Studio Zaha Hadid, Foster & Partners and David Chipperfield ArchitectsPoltrona Frau became part of Haworthbrand portfolio in 2014, according to C&W.

Uma Subramanian says she found her true love in life at age 9, with a trip to Space Camp. Since then, she has been fascinated by anything that flies.

In this episode of Office Hours, Subramanian, now CEO of Aero Technologies, talks about his unique journey in aviation and his plans to create and grow a luxury aviation company.


Subramanian graduated in aerospace engineering and began his career working for NASA. After a few years working in aerospace at a time when the space race was not really a national priority, she decided to take a detour to business school.

“I come from a very engineering-focused company and a very engineering-focused background. So I knew a lot about space rocket propulsion jets, like how do you fly that? But I didn’t really know how the world worked,” Subramanian said.

Going to business school was an eye-opening experience, she said, offering her “a spectacular way to make sense of the world in a very compressed period of time.”

After working for Rolls Royce and becoming managing director of the European branch of TaskRabbit, where he went from selling airline jets to airplanes to organizing gardening groups, Subramanian returned to his fundamental love: l ‘aviation. Through an incubator run by Airbus, Subramanian found herself working at Voom, a company that aims to make helicopter travel accessible and affordable for urban markets.

“So that was my first real entrepreneurial job as CEO. And the goal was basically to make urban air mobility a reality,” Subramanian said.

It wouldn’t be the last time Subramanian ran a cutting-edge aviation company.

She joined Aero technologies in 2019, an airline and aeronautical company that aims to make the flight experience an event in itself. Aero focuses on the wealthiest customers and focuses on routes from Los Angeles to Los Cabos or Aspen to San Francisco.

“There are routes all over the United States that are similar to this where there is a high concentration of people, a steady state of people going back and forth, supplemented by vacationers,” Subramanian said.

She sees the company’s mission as building a luxury brand in aviation. For Subramanian, this means building a brand that resonates with the traveler beyond the basic service of flight.

“We’re really building a brand that’s so much more than just air travel. It happens that air transport is what we offer, but we offer many other services to the customer,” Subramanian said.

Volkswagen subsidiary Skoda’s electric Enyaq could be too successful https://monclerpaschereenligne.com/volkswagen-subsidiary-skodas-electric-enyaq-could-be-too-successful/ Tue, 03 May 2022 08:58:00 +0000 https://monclerpaschereenligne.com/volkswagen-subsidiary-skodas-electric-enyaq-could-be-too-successful/ Skoda Enyaq iV electric car (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images) Getty Images If a car manufacturer starts out as a value brand, such as Kia or Hyundai of Korea, and due to great success over the years, advances into high-end territory, acclaimed for its quality and higher prices in the market, stakeholders will be united […]]]>

If a car manufacturer starts out as a value brand, such as Kia or Hyundai of Korea, and due to great success over the years, advances into high-end territory, acclaimed for its quality and higher prices in the market, stakeholders will be united in their praise and urge you to keep up the good work, right?

Probably not if you’re Volkswagen-owned Skoda and you’re starting to encroach on VW brand territory. And especially if you look at the success of Skoda’s electric SUV, the Enyaq. (Skodas are not sold in the United States).

Last year, from a standing start, Skoda sold nearly 42,000 all-electric Enyaqs to take 7and place in the Western European sales league, about 10,000 below the VW ID.4 SUV in 4and place and the VW ID.3 sedan is nearly 68,000 (3rd), according to Schmidt Automotive Research.

Enyaq’s prices are as high as VW’s, but not by much, and the iV80 Founders Edition, which later, sells in Britain for £48,415 ($60,700) after tax and before subsidies. Skoda is currently launching the Coupé iV, a sports version of the Enyaq and a further upscaling.

Union leaders at the VW brand fear Skoda, much the same under the skin as a Volkswagen, is overrunning its station and cannibalizing sales, and have reportedly suggested the latest tech be held back by the Czech-based suitor . They may well get their wish as Skoda’s next 3 electric cars are expected to be positioned under the Enyaq and will include a small car, reducing its impact on VW electric products.

Matt Schmidt of Schmidt Automotive said Enyaq’s momentum had been dampened somewhat by production hiccups caused by the semiconductor crisis and then by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Competition is also intensifying.

“The Koreans are arguably the toughest competition right now with the Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq5 and soon to be the Genesis (Kia/Hyundai’s premium branch) GV60, giving VW a run for their money. Chinese manufacturers like SAIC’s MG may well target potential Skoda customers they left behind (as its prices rose),” Schmidt said.

The West European market for electric cars grew from zero to around 1.2 million last year, but settled into a narrow range of mostly mid-to-high priced SUVs, with no signs of trying to respond to the market massive. Analysts at French auto consultancy Inovev said manufacturers appear to be happy to sell less volume with higher profits per car.

“This will create a real problem for consumers. In 2030, (when British car buyers are banned from buying new internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, probably followed by major European countries as well), consumers will still have to use their cars and certainly won’t automatically switch public transport or alternative transport. models such as bicycles or car sharing. If European manufacturers cannot offer cheaper electric cars, the Chinese will,” Inovev said in an email.

Inovev said nothing is about to change in terms of electric car technology, while premium brands will continue to launch large sedans and SUVs. Solid-state technology offers big improvements in battery range and performance, but this is unlikely to happen before 2030 to 2035. At the bottom of the market, the Citroën Ami and Renault Twizzy have performance too limited to generate many sales. Chinese vehicles like the Wuling Hong Guang Mini, the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, could be modified for European use.

“The conditions for a real mass market development of the electric vehicle are not yet in place,” Inovev said.

Meanwhile, he said the Enyaq would be a strong competitor, inside and outside the VW Group.

Schmidt agrees that VW should try to move Skoda down the market a bit.

“An awesome trick right now would be if VW could bring the Skoda helium balloon closer to earth, allow VW to take that premium price position and offer a high-volume profitable BEV ‘popular car’ with a badge. Skoda”, Schmidt mentioned.

Meanwhile, Skoda’s first electric vehicle has been enthusiastically received and this Founders Edition will turn heads with its large wheels, illuminated grille, gloss black trim with bronze door mirrors, while its ‘crystal face’ grille that lights up, wireless phone charging and snazzy interior will remind us that this Volkswagen subsidiary is no longer a cheap and cheerful value brand.

The spec is generous, so it should cost close to £50,000, ($63,000), but for that money you’d expect this big, solid SUV to have all-wheel drive, not just rear-wheel drive. Maybe the electric seats too. This “80” version has an 82kWh battery and a 125kW DC fast charging capability that could allow you to fill 80% of the battery in 38 minutes.

Like most all-electric vehicles, the Enyaq is a great city car but limited on the highway. The range claim for a full battery is traditionally fanciful – the boast is 324 miles and my average over 6 home charges was 266 miles. That’s an 18% miss. Almost a one-fifth shortfall, but better than most.

On the highway, the story was worse than most, but not outrageously so. I calculated that at an average speed of 75 mph the range was depleted at a rate of 40.6%, giving a theoretical range of 158 miles. There’s a cheaper Enyaq with a 62kWh battery and six interior designs to choose from. There are four-wheel-drive versions. The entry-level 62kWh battery model has a claimed range of up to 256 miles. Prices start at £34,185 after tax ($42,800).

Pickleball courts are a hot new piece of equipment. (Getty)

It is a game from which the brine came.

Mansion Global reports that the hot new amenity in upscale retirement communities, housing estates and resorts are indoor and outdoor courts for playing Pickleball – an old-fashioned combination of tennis, badminton and ping pong. nearly 60 years old than nearly 4.8 people who play every day find it dill-icious.

“Buyers are definitely asking questions about pickleball,” Wendy Pines, sales manager of Casamar Residences, which has homes starting at $1.5 million, in Pompano Beach, Florida, told the publication. “They’re excited we’re going to have it on the property and it appeals to people of all ages.”

Pickleball plays like badminton without the shuttlecock, replacing what was first a whiffle ball (before settling on a plastic ball with multiple holes), and uses a more tennis-esque net and specialized racquets that are similar, but larger than these. used to play table tennis.

Its popularity has only grown since its invention in 1965 on Brainbridge Island in Washington State thanks to its simplicity of play, inexpensive equipment and popularity in community centers, school gymnasiums, parks , health clubs, YMCA facilities and retirement communities.

And this has led the major manufacturers to take it into account in their plans for new developments.

“Whether it’s a retirement community, a planned housing development with a variety of product types for different ages and demographics, or a private club, you name it, they add pickle[ball]Chicago-based designer Mary Cook, who specializes in multi-family developments and amenity facilities, told the publication.

At the Miami Standard Residences, which are slated for completion in 2023, developers have designed an indoor lot that can be used as a party room, with disco balls hanging from the ceiling. Spectators and players will be offered branded clothing and paddles based on Wes Anderson’s film ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’.

And at the Abaco Club in the Bahamas, where cabins cost up to $3 million and villas up to $12 million, an underutilized area has been transformed into lighted pickleball courts and a half-court basketball court the along a palm fringed palm tree. road leading to the beach.

“It opened up the whole area and changed the dynamic,” Matt Young, Abaco Club’s director of outdoor activities, told the publication. “Plans are underway to build a sort of outlet, with a coffee stand in the morning where people can sit and watch pickleball or have a cup of coffee between games.”

Representatives for residential developer Optima, which has properties in Scottsdale, Arizona and Chicago, said they are planning an outdoor pickleball stadium in a luxury apartment tower in Scottsdale.

“We’re excited to build resident programming around this new feature, possibly hosting a tournament,” David Hovey Jr., Optima’s COO and Principal Architect, told the website.

With all of these Pickleball plans in the works, it looks like this trend won’t be going bad anytime soon (yes, that pickleball pun is planned).

If you’re interested in a large luxury SUV with a stunning interior and up to 8,700 pounds of towing capacity, Lincoln can meet your needs. But only if you’re willing to wait. Ford’s luxury brand will no longer attempt to keep its full-size 2022 Lincoln Navigator SUV in stock on dealership lots, the company has announced.

Its website now reads: “The 2022 Lincoln Navigator is available by custom order only. Some models, trims and features may not be available. Please contact your local Lincoln Dealer for updates and information. ‘aid.

Custom car ordering helps you get exactly the color and feature combination you want. But that can mean waiting months for your new vehicle to be built.

Blame the ongoing microchip shortage and Ford’s long-term strategic plan.

A worldwide shortage of microchips has prevented automakers from building cars fast enough to meet demand. High-tech models like the Navigator can have as many as 150 tiny processors. Chips being rare, Lincoln reduced the functionality of the large SUV.

2022 Navigator models leaving the factory today come without the optional Active Park Assist system. Instead, Lincoln is installing the sensors and hardware with the promise of adding the chips to enable it at a later date.

But it’s not just the flea crisis. Ford has long planned to move to a made-to-order model where buyers order the car they want before the automaker builds it, rather than the traditional model where buyers choose from a stock of cars at the dealership. The Navigator may just be ordering sooner than expected.

It joins many of Ford’s most successful new models in taking the catalog approach. The Ford Bronco, F-150 Lightning and Maverick small pickups are all available almost exclusively for pre-order.
