Shanghai-based interior designers and architects Coordination Asia have completed a new breed of telecom stores named AER for AISIDI, one of China’s leading resellers of mobile and digital products and services.
AER is a retail brand that offers customised mobile services in a playful, cool and customer-focused environment. The architects took on branding as well as VI and store design for AER. The first AER store has now opened in Shenzhen and new stores are planned to open China-wide soon.
Inspired by the growing importance of mobile Internet use in daily life in China, the firm created an out-of-the-box brand that turns the act of purchasing a mobile product into an active and fun experience. AER is based on a great understanding of mobile lifestyle, in which mobile devices keep you connected, entertained and updated through a variety of online and offline apps.
The store layout of the commercial property has been designed as an interactive environment that caters to the needs of different target-customers: Trendy, Lifestyle and Tech Savvy. Products are thematically presented in combination with related accessories, apps and carriers on custom-made presentation tables with ‘serving trays’. Following a black runway from the entrance, customers find the App Bar where they can try out mobile apps on a large interactive screen. Painted pegboards are used to cover the walls of the store. This allows display shelves to be hung freely within the whole space and to be changed location at all times. The whole interior is flexible, so that changes in layout can be made quick and easily.
Valencia-based architects and interior designers Masquespacio have designed the office for Spanish Law firm Zapata y Herrera. Completed in 2012, the contemporary office design can be found in Spain’s third largest city Valencia.
According to the architects: “First of all the old beams were restored, making them an essential element of the project. The use of wood is significant in the office design, not wanting to stand out, but in order to transmit confidence as one of the most important values of Zapata y Herrera. The use the of colour grey takes over, symbolising stability and professionalism, while the use of black transmits a certain elegance and seriousness with which the firm practices its profession.
“On the left side of the office we can find the central element, which is a curtain made of wooden strips that repeat the colours of the firms’ values. It is noteworthy to mention how the small space was maximised using L-shaped tables positioned above the storage lockers.
“In front of the previous contemporary office space and behind the reception we can find the interns area with a sense of green offered by a range of Aloe Vera plants matching with a green chair from Javier Mariscal, made from a 100 per cent recycled material.
“Also alongside the boardroom from where you can see the Float couch, this has been designed by Karim Rashid for the Spanish brand Sancal.”
Grenada and The Grenadines are widely considered to be the most unspoilt cruising grounds in the Caribbean. Famed for its people’s warm and gregarious hospitality the ‘Spice Island’ of Grenada has a varied topography of mountains, rainforests and waterfalls, fringed by icing sugar beaches and cooled by trade winds.
As the closest island to the Grenadines with an international airport, and lying south of the hurricane belt, Grenada offers a year round safe haven in the southern Caribbean. The Grenadines and Grenada also provide easy access to a variety of other cruising destinations such as Trinidad and Venezuela, as well as Canouan Island in the Grenadines. Additionally Grenada’s close proximity to Barbados makes it ideal for residential owners there, to make the short flight to cruise the idyllic Grenadines.
Overlooking the historic capital St Georges, the prestigious Port Louis Marina opened in 2007 and has transformed Grenada’s yachting amenities. Owned and managed by Camper & Nicholsons Marinas since early 2008, the luxury marina supplies all the services of a state-of-the-art marina. Designed to reflect the traditional Creole architecture, the marina offers 170 berths, including 30 superyacht berths for vessels from 25m to 90m LOA, and 7m drafts.
The luxury marina is home to one of the top restaurants on the island, in the Victory Bar & Grill, overlooking the superyacht dock and picturesque Carenage. The dining scene on the island is varied, ranging from local fare at BB’s Crabback on the Carenage, to international cuisine fused with Caribbean offerings at Savvy’s restaurant at Mt.
Grenada hosts a full calendar of boating events throughout the year. From the annual Grenada Sailing Festival, to the Spice Island Billfish Tournament, Grenada is fast becoming known as the Caribbean’s ultimate yachting destination.
