Botequim Paulista feels like the only place to go when you feel like meeting up with your friends or something like it. It's traditional boteco, with tables in the street, the two owners as waiters and very see-what-happens food - ovo de codorna, sliced calabrezza and peanuts.
This is a little general but there’s so many great cinemas in London, I can’t choose just one. I probably go to Screen on the Green most often as it’s nearby and shows great films, has really comfortable armchairs and serve drinks to your seat as well as hosting director Q&As and late night screenings. Other favourites include: Curzon Mayfair, Renoir, NFT, Barbican and Prince Charles cinema where I’ve been to a great Movie Maths triple bill; RoboCop + The Raid = Dredd. I can’t get rid of anything so compile all my tickets in a file chronologically, which also serves as a map of where I was living at any one time; depending on which cinemas I frequented the most.
Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (of Central Park), Prospect Park is where I go running in better weather and find an endless supply of flotsam and jetsam for casting in projects all year round. Thickets of trees, hidden paths, and rolling hills are an endless source of inspiration.
Possibly one of the most interesting places in Europe, its volcanic landscapes may make you feel like being in Mars. But also El Teide itself, the highest place in Spain, and the view of the other six Canarian islands during clear days makes it an amazing place. If you are a photography and/or hiking lover, this is a place for spending hours discovering its different landscapes and views, and there are many hiking routes around, in the National Park area. The most famous is the one from the bottom to the top of El Teide, from around 2.200 to 3.718 meters over sea level.

My name is Lavinia and I am a jewellery maker based in Florence and temporarily living in Shanghai doing an artist residency.
I’m fascinated by the artificial or natural patterns i see around me and my pieces emerge through the repetition of elements, as combined with three fundamental aspects which dialogue together: movement, flexibility and weight.

Jos Buivenga can be passionate about a lot of things. He loves to paint, listen to music, brew an almost perfect espresso... but nothing challenges and rewards him more than designing type. If ever he was stranded on a desert island he would still draw alphabets in the sand, even if there was no one else to see them.
He is the founder of exljbris, the one-man Dutch font foundry through which he releases and offers his typefaces. For 15 years, his online friends and fans could follow the development of his typefaces and download the results at no cost. In 2008, while still working as an art director at an advertising agency, he released his first commercial typeface Museo with several weights offered for free. That strategy paid off and Museo became a huge bestseller. Partly thanks to that success he now calls himself a full time type designer.

No need for instructions we believe in ‘less is more’ and ease of use when defining our designs. Our toys provide limitless fun.
We are deeply inspired by the links between modern art and objects for children And have an innate admiration for what children can teach us.
