Pedal pushing

Madone, the latest generation of race bikes from Trek Bicycle, combines advanced aerodynamics, ultra-lightweight and superior ride quality. The bike’s IsoSpeed design not only smoothens the road for riders, but also reduces fatigue. Madone SLR comes with both disc and direct rim brake options. It also has stem options and additional bar sizes apart from +/- 5 degrees of bar rotation.

Changing times

The Luminor California 8 Days DLC takes several of the most characteristic Panerai ingredients—the California dial, the titanium case coated in DLC (diamond-like carbon), and the hand-wound P5000 calibre mechanical movement with a power reserve of eight days—and combines them in an original way with a completely new cuff strap of supple natural leather

Wooden charm

These chairs from Cane Boutique have been carved out of a single solid block of acacia wood, which has been weathered for a period of six months. The pieces do not have any polish to enhance their look, and can be used indoors and outdoors with equal ease.

Silver linings

The Burnished Bamboo collection from ArgentOr Silver, known for its superior quality hallmarked silverware, combines oriental beauty and minimalistic design to create utility adornments. These ornaments add versatility and grace to their surroundings.
