Pretty weird, as it may seem, this is in fact not a toy Batmobile. The guys at Lazareth, one of France’s lesser known carmaking brands, have recently unveiled a striking 4-wheeler they’ve named the Wazuma V8F Matt Edition. As odd as it may look, this is a very interesting project, with two largely spaced wheels at the front, while the two at the rear seem to be tied together. Muscle-wise, the Wazuma V8F boasts a mighty 3.0-liter V8 engine, manufactured by Ferrari, delivering 250 HP. It doesn’t seem that much indeed, but do remember this vehicle tips the scales at just 650
A superbly elegant thematic line, the Christopher Columbus collection by Zenith has recently been added a brand new member. The newest member of the lot is the Hurricane Grand Voyage, a stunning 10-piece limited edition timepiece boasting with features for the royal class. First of all, the Zenith Christopher Columbus Hurricane Grand Voyage comes with a micro-painted, engraved and enameled caseback. The level of detailing on this segment is simply mind-boggling – there’s a gorgeously engraved portrait of Columbus, surrounding the gyroscopic mechanism, alongside a sextant to the far right. Above these two one may notice the representation of Columbus’ flagship during
I’m not entirely sure that a Beetle would first come into mind when thinking of furniture design. Well, Andrea Colombo and Linda Assandri have recently put together a fantastic looking armchair, which, you guessed it, bears the face of a VW Beetle. In fact, the story is rather interesting – it was penned down by two apparently different characters: a famous iconic cars aficionado and a passionate for Swarovski glitter and bling. Quite extraordinary indeed, as the Beetle Armchair belongs to none of the categories, specifically speaking. ZAC Glamour Design lies behind the aforementioned two, having put together Car Art and Baroque
Swiss watchmaker and eyewear brand Tag Heuer launched a series of luxury phones with the Meridiist which debuted back in 2008. Since then they haven’t changed much about the phone, but now the 2nd generation is lighter, thinner and more powerful than before thanks to a new processor and a great battery that will apparently last for 28 days on a single charge. Dubbed as the Tag Heuer Meridiist II, this handset retains the 24/7 concierge service much like the first generation, and also includes original features like the dual sim slot and the automatic time zone update via GMT, which can
If you want the best, you have to pay for the best. And the Petiole Hammock is by far the king of hammocks. Handmade in Sweden and recipient of Les Découvertes award for innovation and creativity at the prestigious Maison & Objet design show in Paris, this is what a hammock should be. With its electropolished 304 stainless steel pole and up to 86% UV protective canopy, this hammock is sure to make almost any view pleasant. The Petiole Hammock retails for $35, 000 which is probably quite affordable for the rich and famous. Sturdiness is another strong element of this hammock

This year’s SIHH in Geneva saw Piaget combine almost a decade and a half of watchmaking nous with a keen eye for high jewelery design, resulting in a number of extraordinary watch collections for women including the standout Limelight Gala diamond watches. With its stylish curves and gem-set bezel featuring a trail of progressively sized brilliant-cut diamonds, the Limelight Gala collection whispers of Piaget’s glamorous initial foray into jewelery watches in the 1960s. Entirely in tune with its incomparable aesthetic the Limelight Gala collection reveals a distinctive personality imbued with a sense of glamorous chic. At the crossroads of art, design and
For decades, Ferruccio Lamborghini’s Riva Aquarama sat in the corner of a boat yard, stashed underneath a tarp, rotting into oblivion. Forty-five years after it was commissioned by old man Lambo himself, it’s back on the water, complete with not one, but two classic Lamborghini V12s. Uncovered by a Riva collector in 2010, the Riva Aquarama Lamborghini underwent a complete restoration at the hands of Riva World. But to keep the Aquarama original, the owner of the Dutch shipyard in charge of this restoration traveled back and forth to Italy to visit the Lamborghini museum, meticulously documenting every detail before work began.
