David Chang's Momofuku



Chef David Chang's first cookbook is long, laced with profanity and full of complicated, labor-intensive recipes, many of which require obscure ingredients like kochukaru (Korean chili powder) and sliced country jowl. In food circles, it's one of the most highly anticipated books of the year.
Mr. Chang, 32 years old, has emerged as one of the country's hottest chefs since launching Momofuku Noodle Bar, then a 27-seat restaurant in downtown Manhattan, in 2004. Today, he has accumulated three more restaurants and two Michelin stars, and visitors from all over the world endure long waits for his inventive creations. Much as Wolfgang Puck leapt to national fame in the early 1980s when his Spago restaurant in Los Angeles launched California cuisine, Mr. Chang is the anointed star of the current dining scene—the young gun that other chefs world-wide are watching and copying. continue..


I really enjoyed watching this minus the pork & alcohol prospective. really interesting & inspiring story he has;)I really luv his consistancy & drive. It's proves through patience & consistency you will persevere.

The Glacier by Gus Wüstemann

In the attic level of a historic building in Lucerne, Switzerland, the Zurich-based architect has built what he describes as a “glacier” – a sculptural staircase that leads up to a rooftop terrace.
The lacquered staircase has been expanded into a broader structure of shelves designed as nooks to sleep on, sit on and generally inhabit as the social hub of the otherwise open-plan apartment.
Wüstemann says: “All things that look like architectural details I want to get rid of. When I look at it I don’t see kitchen or bedroom, I see a landscape.”
The landscape concept was used to connect the main living area with the roof terrace, which overlooks the old town of Lucerne. One of the key functions of the white steps is to funnel daylight down from the rooflight and into the apartment. There are also lights built into the abstract, geometric structure that allow for it to be used as a multi-purpose space.
Wüstemann was influenced by the landscape around Lucerne, which is made up of glacial mountains and valleys. “We imagined the terrace as the summit,” he says, “the place where the sun is shining, and the flat as the sheltered valley.”
The white floor also reflects light into the depth of the plan, and is conceived as the lake at the end of the glacier.
The rest of the living space is equally ambiguous in its use. Enclosures made from chipboard – the kind used on construction site hoardings – can be opened and closed to display and then hide rooms.
“The opening and closing of the bathroom and bedroom changes the intimacy of the whole thing,” explains Wüstemann. The bedroom door has a gap at the bottom, meaning people in the living area can see the feet of people within – like in a swimming pool changing room, or a Japanese bathhouse.
“I always try to free the elements of programmatic occupation. The notation disappears – I want them to be very free in my mind. I want to be able to play football in there; or have an art exhibition.”

Guys, I'd lay around here all day & sleep  like sleeping beauty..lol..I think I want my crib painted back white with white curtains & white linen..I think I'll do that! Like Gus Wüstemann said "have an art exhibit"LUV THAT soooooo!:)Defiantly my new Deco inspiration clean & airy!

 Over the course of her illustrious career, the makeup artist Pat McGrath (pictured here) has worked with the world’s top designers (Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin), hottest supermodels (Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell), and biggest stars (Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez). In this Q&A, the New York–based McGrath—now the global creative design director at Procter & Gamble Beauty, which includes Max Factor and CoverGirl—dishes to VF Daily’s SunHee Grinnell and Laura Katzenberg about beauty trends, being backstage, and her must-have products of the moment.

VF Daily: When did you know you wanted to be a makeup artist?
PMG: In my late teens. I was dressing up and going out to clubs a lot. I was obsessed with doing my makeup, both for evening and daytime. One day I was walking around London and a famous television presenter asked me about my makeup. When I told her I did it, she asked if I would do her makeup sometime.continue...vanityfair

The 64 rooms and suites blend design and functionality, maximising comfort. Architect, Vincenzo De Cotiis, a fashion designer of HAUTE collections, has used an eclectic mix of materials, including scratched mirrors, burnished brass, iron, black stone and cement. The STRAF's location, only steps from the Duomo cathedral, places guests at the core of Milan, moments from the fashionable Via Montenapoleone, the shopping districts and La Scala Opera house. After a day of pounding the Milan streets in search of just one more pair of shoes, try the Japanese massage chairs in the fifth floor chromo and aromatherapy rooms. A sure bet for tired limbs and worn-out minds.
