What’s new in the world of design: December 2017

Continuing our travel theme this month – as it is the holiday season after all – we have pulled together the latest and most stylish in design for the jet setters among us. From high end airport lounges to luxurious camper vans, we’ll have you travelling in style. Take a look…

1.Cathay Pacific’s The Pier Business Lounge in Hong Kong

Newly opened in Hong Kong is ‘The Pier’ by Cathay Pacific. Modelled after iconic Hong Kong experiences, you can enjoy a teahouse, noodle bar, market-like Food Hall, and – a must for long haul travellers – a relaxation zone complete with low upholstered loungers and footstools and the ‘Bureau’, where workaholics can access iMacs, printers and other business tools. The design is based on warm natural materials and subtle touches of oriental detail.

2. Airstream Globetrotter

New from travel trailer company Airstream is their luxe ‘Globetrotter’ edition. Sophisticated, clean and modern – this isn’t your normal camper. Stretching 27-foot long and featuring a shower, and double bed, and a choice of natural elm or dark walnut interiors, this van will have you hitting the open roads in class.

3. Qantas’ London Lounge at Heathrow Airport

Early next year, Qantas will be launching its much anticipated direct 787 Dreamliner flights between Australia and London. So, it’s only fitting that they open a stylish new lounge to match!

The multimillion dollar lounge was designed by global design firm, Woods Bagot and took more than a year to build.

But the result is beautiful: a combination of stone, marble, timber, leather and brass finishes with forest green fabrics. That’s what we call first class travel!
