Cars by Stephen Bayley


‎"A car is the most symbolically rich thing we ever buy. No other artefact requires such investment of energy, money and passion to manufacture. No other artefact sucks such cupidity and yearning from its consumers. Cars are overwhelmingly potent, and there are reasonable and rational forces trying to curtail our use of them, but once - as Henry Ford realised long ago - you've let the genie of consumer freedom out of the box, there's no putting it back."

~ Stephen Bayley, on the sexual allure of cars

「 Perfection in Imperfection / Imperfection in Perfection 」

a culinary repertoire through the senses of
Chef Janice Wong


"In 2010, I subjected myself to 72 hours of blindness. Social activities; absolute solitude; music, painting — I put myself through these experiences in an effort to train my senses. But it did more:
without my sight, my imagination was set free. I couldn't see a thing, but I could see everything."

~ Janice Wong, chef and owner of 2am:dessertbar
