What we have here is a true work of art. I honestly adore this gadget, a timepiece called the Lamina Nixie Clock. It brings back a retro feeling while looking absolutely rugged. The thingy puts up some electronic numerals that make you feel like being part of history. Furthermore, the piece was manufactured by hand by the acclaimed artist Zoltan Acs, from maple and walnut woods, while boasting a series of brass disks and gears which confer it three different looks – Steampunk, Industrial and Art Deco. The timepiece is powered by antique Russian Nixie vacuum tubes which let out

The name Dom Perignon makes me regret not having celebrated the coming of the New Year with a bottle of genuine champagne in my hands. Never mind this, I still love exquisite sparkling wines as well, but they pale in comparison with such a champagne, let alone when greeting you from a gorgeous cooler. The Kyoto champagne cooler was designed and manufactured by the Australian designer Marc Newson, in collaboration with Seikado, a brand from Japan, in fact a workshop that was founded back in 1838, in Kyoto. Both the sides of the cooler feature pewter pieces, serving as holders

The story behind the William Grant & Sons Ltd. Distillery had become extremely interesting starting with the year 1962. The famous brand, founded back in 1886 by William Grant, has known two substantially important events.

The character had then filled it with newly made distillate from the Balvenie Distillery. Currently the brand’s Malt Master, David Stewart was hired as apprentice at that time, which
