A Film About Coffee is a love letter to, and meditation on, specialty coffee. It examines what it takes, and what it means, for coffee to be defined as “specialty.” The film whisks audiences on a trip around the world, from farms in Honduras and Rwanda to coffee shops in Tokyo, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York. Through the eyes and experiences of farmers and baristas, the film offers a unique overview of all the elements—the processes, preferences and preparations; traditions old and new—that come together to create the best cups. This is a film that bridges gaps both intellectual and geographical, evoking flavor and pleasure, and providing both as well.
The result was a curved form interior, which set the whole house as well as the inhabitant’s life, into motion. The ‘skateboarding’ element is adopted in every possible way. When the client asked me to design a home where she could be able to skate, I immediately eliminated the idea of just putting a mini ramp in the living room. For me, the challenge of this project was to make a living space where the ramp, the bowl and all the interpretations of those terms would actually become the building elements for this space. I wanted to make a ‘ramp house’ and not a ‘house with a ramp’. So I started imagining a space where the straight line would become curved and the flat surface would become a ramp or a bowl. Playing with these forms and with the variable transitions which offer, my main goal was to create a functional open space where aspects of daily life would adopt ‘ the feeling of acceleration’ which is basically one of the main characteristics of skateboarding. In that way, the whole space is in actual motion and somebody can flow from one space to the other, skating or walking.

Since the first edition was held in 1999 (in an airplane hangar), Iceland Airwaves has become one of the premier annual showcases for new music – Icelandic and otherwise – in the world. It’s made a heap of friends and won many fans along the way, and been lavished with praise pretty much everywhere they write about music. Example: Rolling Stone magazine called it “The hippest long weekend on the annual music-festival calendar.”
Some of the world’s most exciting artists have performed there, too. The Shins, The Rapture, TV On The Radio, Florence and the Machine, Klaxons, Hot Chip, Flaming Lips, Wolf Parade, Bloc Party and Fatboy Slim have made the short hop from Europe or North America to share the stages with Iceland’s finest talents, including bands such as Björk, Sigur Rós, FM Belfast, GusGus, múm, Of Monsters and Men and Seabear, to name but a few. And when the live bands have done their thing, top DJs from all over the world spin across the city until the crack of dawn.
But there’s more to Airwaves than music. Reykjavík is quite possibly the perfect festival city – small enough to be welcoming, sophisticated enough to offer cultural, historical and nightlife diversions to rival cities ten times its size. Maybe twenty. Who knows? And it’s surrounded by some of the most unique and astonishing natural beauty you’re ever likely to see (this is a grand statement, but you should just see it).
Roll out of bed, hose the party remains out of your hair and hop on a bus. Before you can remember what you did the night before, you’re looking at geysers, waterfalls, lava fields – all the best that a volcanic island has to offer, including the world-famous Blue Lagoon, favorite soaking spot of the international hung-over glitterati. Mmm! You can really taste the hipster!
With inclusive package tours from major international gateways starting at less than you might expect to pay for airfare alone, getting neck deep in one of the hottest, coolest music festivals anywhere is maybe just a little too easy. Poke around the site, sign up for email updates, check the prices from your neck of the woods, and read about what’s in store for 2014. Then come and join the party.
Welcome to Iceland. Welcome to Iceland Airwaves!
In September 2014 GoPro announced the HERO4, available in Black Edition and Silver Edition, which replace their respective Hero3+ generation predecessors. The Hero, a budget camera, was also announced.
The HERO4 Black Edition still has a 12mp CMOS and a f/2.8 fixed maximum aperture. It adds Bluetooth connectivity, and a new processor claimed by GoPro to be twice as fast as that of the HERO3+ Black Edition, doubling the frame rates in most resolutions. The HERO4 Black Edition can record 4K video at a frame rate of 24, 25 and 30 fps. In Superview mode, 4k is only possible at 25 fps. Many other rates and resolutions are available. The Hero4 Black Edition still shoots stills at a maximum of 12MP with a maximum burst rate of 30 fps. With Wi-Fi disabled at 4k/30 the Hero4 Black Edition battery life is claimed by GoPro to be 65 minutes, increasing to a maximum of 1h 50′ at 720p/120. The HERO4 Black battery is rated at 3.8v, 1160mAh, 4.4Wh in a different form factor than its predecessors. Initial side-by-side comparisons of HERO3+ and HERO4 Black edition video results suggest that the newer model has more detail at long range, and similar performance at close range.
The Hero4 Silver Edition is basically a Hero3+ Black with the addition of a touch screen, the first GoPro with this. The HERO4 Silver supports Wi-Fi and also includes Bluetooth as in the HERO4 Black.
The Hero4 models maintains the H.264 video codec of previous versions and MP4 file formats. GoPro claims the mono microphone in both the Black and Silver Editions have twice the dynamic range of the Hero3+, and that the HERO4 Black and Silver Editions have improved low light performance.
The GoPro HERO was released at the same time as the HERO4, with a 5MP still camera and the same video resolutions as the HERO3 White Edition, carried over from the HD HERO model of 2010.
A juke és footwork műfajnevekkel körbehatárolható dalhoz egy viszonylag egyszerű, mégis sokak számára ismerős témát választottak: a félresikerült műmájer lepacsizásokat. Biztos mindenki ismeri azt a kifejezetten kellemetlen érzést, amikor a túl lelkes sokadik ismerős egy sima kézfogás helyett valami egészen más pózban kezdi el mozgatni a karját üdvözlésképpen, aminek általában csak valami kínos bénázás lesz az eredménye.
A húst a jól bevált Nagyvárad téri hentestől szerzik be és csak komoly előkészületek után, helyben sütik ki, a pékáru is frissen, szinte még melegen érkezik Pestről. A design minimalista, a piros és a fehér színek dominálnak a bárszékes helységben. Nyáron a teraszt is megnyitják, így már a szabad ég alatt is élvezhetjük az ebédünket/ vacsoránkat.
LÄRM is a techno club launched on the spring of 2014. 200 technolovers can fit in its all-black hall where sound is the main attraction. There is no such thing as decibel-limit here, which is unique in downtown Budapest. What LÄRM has to offer is professional acoustics, a Martin Audio sound system and an armageddon-esque vibe all over the place. The club is on the first floor of another popular venue of Akácfa street, Fogas Ház.
The band culled their name from the Variety Slanguage Dictionary, a glossary of Variety ’s frequently-used slang, which was provided by the Hollywood insider publication to help not-so-savvy readers decipher its content. The magazine used the term to refer to drive-in theatres, because of their privacy and romantic allure for teenagers.
This eclectic mix of thrill-seekers gather each year atMonte Piana because it is “easy” to tightrope (relative to Everest, sure) and it has an inherently mythical, magical quality. While most of us struggle to take a casual somersault off a standard diving board, a fear of heights is obviously not on the cards for these guys. This could perhaps be the perfect way to overcome such fears?
Monte Piana is among the Dolomites, offering a spectacular 360 degrees view out across the range and over the Lake of Misurina below. The views are astonishing, the heights are dizzying, and the thrill of hopping into your hammock for a quick chat with a nearby dangling human are second to none. There are – of course – harnesses, so it should be pretty easy to relax and just stroll across, right?
Nick Murphy has played for a band called Sunday Kicks, and an electronic/dance duo “Knicks”. He has also played under the name of Atlas Murphy. Murphy decided he needed to play under a stage name after people came to his shows thinking he was a different and already established musician named Nick Murphy. He settled on the name Chet Faker as an homage to Chet Baker: “I listened to a lot of jazz and I was a big fan of … the way he sang, when he moved into mainstream singing. He had this really fragile vocal style—this really, broken, close-up and intimate style. The name is kind of just an ode to Chet Baker and the mood of music he used to play—something I would like to at least pay homage to in my own music.” Other influences he has cited include Bob Dylan, as well as his mother’s Motown albums and his father’s “chilled out Ibiza CDs”.
He first rose to prominence after his cover of Blackstreet‘s “No Diggity” went viral online, reaching #1 on the Hypemachine chart in May 2011. He released his first EP Thinking In Textures on 22 March 2012 to positive reviews, being described as “wonderfully loungey” and praised for its ability to “mix subtlety with impressive beauty”.The EP was also popular with fans, with single “I’m Into You” landing at number 24 on the 2012 Triple J Hottest 100 chart.
Faker has worked with several other artists since the release of his debut EP, including collaborations with Flume and remixes of songs by MS MR and The Temper Trap. He was a featured vocalist on Say Lou Lou‘s “Fool of Me”, which was named Best New Track by Pitchfork in May 2013.
He released a new single featuring Kilo Kish on 12 August 2013. In September of 2013, Flume announced that he and Faker had recorded an EP, stating that the final result “doesn’t sound particularly like Flume or specifically like, you know, a Chet Faker record it really is kinda like a hybrid of both sounds going to one” and he feels like everything they did with the EP “was collaborative about the whole effort, and I think that shines through.” Faker’s debut album, Built on Glass, was released on 11 April 2014, which was preceded by the release of lead single “Talk Is Cheap” and its accompanying music video on 11 February. The album debuted at number 1 on the ARIA Charts.

Fall 2004. Anton Sandqvist, a civil engineer with a booming career in an international electronics company and a house in Nacka outside of Stockholm, contemplated the current situation. his job was interesting and well-paid with close to 100 days of travel per year, yet something was missing. he wanted to be able to express his creativity, have influence and build something up. The strict world of suits didn’t feel like home to him, and he dreamed of a job where he could be himself. Just for the fun of it, and to fill up some of the space in his basement, Anton bought an industrial sewing machine over the internet.
One night he decided to try his skills at making a bag. The design of the Swiss brand freitag’s messenger bags ap- pealed to him, but he wanted a bag that could hold a laptop, since he was carrying one around all day in his work. The style of the bag had to be robust and casual, not too dressy. almost 30 hours of work later, the bag was finished.
People immediately started asking him where he had bought it, and when the fourth person asked the same thing, a thought flashed through his head: The idea of manufacturing and selling this type of bag—functional, well-designed and not too expensive.
A few days later Anton found himself with his self-produced bag in front of Grandpa in Stockholm, a newly opened fashion store. he built up his courage for a while, and then entered. Luckily, the staff’s reaction was enthusiastic and the store bought ten bags on trial.
That same night Anton searched the web for manufacturers, and finally found one that made bags for the Russian military. Several phone calls and good deal of persuasion later, the company agreed to take his order. after a couple of weeks, a pallet of material was delivered to Anton’s living room, transforming it into a temporary storage room before he sent everything off to Estonia for sewing.
About a month later, the basement held the first 100 Sandqvist bags.
About a year and a half later, in 2006, Sandqvist had a small but established production of bags and about 15 retailers in Sweden, but the business was still run in Anton’s time off from work. in order to save in on shipping costs, an- ton often delivered the bags to the retailers himself, with his scooter, but the new deliveries from the manufacturers were filling up his basement. at the same time, Anton’s younger brother Daniel and his childhood friend Sebastian had built up their pop culture magazine People from a small fanzine to one of Sweden’s biggest free magazines.
They had an office downtown and a wide network of con- tacts in fashion and the media. in order to make things run smoother, Sandqvist’s stock of bags was moved to a storage room at the People office, and Anton changed his schedule at the electronics company, working shorter hours with a lower salary, spending more time at his desk in the storage room. Daniel and Sebastian were offered an ownership stake in the company in exchange for carrying boxes, arranging photo shoots and writing press releases. but most important, the three new colleagues now designates a new direction for the company. Sandqvists design development had been relatively modest—the main focus was still tarpaulin bags which were mostly sold to design stores. at this stage, a brand new collection aimed at men’s fashion retailers was developed. in the cramped storage room of the People office, Anton drew a new bag model, Arne, which became hugely successful.
Arne and the rest of the 2007 collection were designed in artificial leather, for that authentic seventies feel and in order to keep the prices down. The manufacturing process was moved to china, and Arne was accompanied by rune, Meryl and dustin, bags that were produced in thousands of copies. Thanks to the new collection, the bags started to show up in fashion magazines. The three founders were now getting to know and understand the principles of the fashion business. for the first time they participated in the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair, where important contacts were established and the first international orders were made.
Aiming for the next level, a complementary range in real leather was soon launched, and in 2009 the first Sandqvist backpack saw the light of day.
Anton had read a book about the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen’s journey through the northwest Passage, which had inspired him deeply. Consequently, he created a backpack in durable canvas with straps in vegetable-tanned leather, which carries the legend’s name.
The search for highly skilled leather suppliers led to two factories in india with a long tradition of tanning and sewing leather. one of them was started as a Swedish government aid project with the aim of creating jobs. All of the factory’s machinery comes from a closed down Swedish factory, and its employee gender mix is balanced. Noor and Anjum, a devout muslim couple in their thirties with two young children, own and run the factory. Most of the communication is done through Skype, sometimes from Sandqvist’s snow-covered log cabin in the woods, a distinct contrast to the heat of the Indian plains.
In 2010, Sandqvist continued to grow. In the daytime: more retailers, the first sales agents outside of Sweden, a larger collection, an online store, invoicing, and delivery control. In the nighttime: drawing bags. That summer, Anton made a big decision—to leave behind the security of his part-time job with a fixed monthly salary. his wife Anna persuaded him to challenge his concerns about not being able to pay the rent and support their two children. Sandqvist was ready for its first full-time employee.
In november 2010, Anton finally got his own office and had over 60 bag models in his collection, enjoying life at its fullest. When People magazine was put on ice, Daniel also became a full-time employee and later Sebastian was hired by Sandqvist as well. The Swedish fashion magazines Café and King each awarded the company a design prize—and soon enough they had their own store premises in a basement with an entrance door to one of Stockholm’s busiest streets. Exactly one year later, Sandqvist’s second store opened, in Gothenburg.
Anton’s hobby activity in a suburb basement had now grown into a company with seven full-time employees, and one retailer had become 350 — of which 300 abroad. And most important: Sandqvist was becoming a buzzword among design-conscious customers around the world.
Anton rides his bike through the dark of December, along a row of bare trees, and picks up his second son at kindergarten on his way home. Ideas and thoughts stir in his mind. Sandqvist’s first local manufacturing facility is about to start up. The website is being rebuilt. Two new employees will soon be hired. The sample collection for the fall of 2013, in total over 700 products which will be delivered to eight sales agents all over the world, has to arrive on time. but just a moment later, all thoughts of work vanish, as the first flakes of snow start to fall. »If there’s a heavy snowfall next week, I’ll take the day off and do an overnight tour in the natural reserve of Tyresta and try out our new big backpack,« Anton thinks. »After all, it’s pretty nice to have your own company and be able to do whatever you like.«
Az AMOEBA alap koncepciója az volt, hogy azokkal az emberekkel szeretnének forgatni, akikkel az elmúlt évek alatt bármilyen szinten kollaboráltak, esetleg közös úton járnak, vagy szimplán csak tisztelnek. Elmondásuk alapján megdöbbentő volt, mennyire gazdag lett a felhozatal, épp ezért sajnos nem tudtak mindenkit felvonultatni a klipben.
A videót Sabák Péter és jóbarátja, Gábor Márton készítette. Három héten át, heti 4-5 nap forgattak. Miután mindenkivel egyeztettek bringára pattantak – vállukon az állványokkal és a kamerával – és így járták a várost. A premier május 5-én a Toldiban volt, ahol egy óriási bulit csaptak a srácok.
It is nearly impossible to stay hungry in Kazinczy Street: there’s Hungarian and Mexican street food,Thai souper, and even kosher pizza. Lovers of theJapanese and Chinese cuisine were rather neglected until now, but with the opening ofRamenka, changes are coming. We can choose from five types of ramen + a miso soup with all kinds of toppings: bok choy (Chinese cabbage), bean sprouts, corn, eggs, pork, beef, chicken, seafood, etc. One of the five is naturally a vegetable variant (with the same meaty broth, though), the others use white and red meats, so they try to give more alternatives of theTokyo recipe. The pricing fits Király Street‘s little brother, but the portions are huge. They also havegyoza (homemade pasta filled with minced meat and two kinds of onions), an usual dish for ramen places, and unique salads: Japanese radish, chili potatoand Chinese cucumber. The design is sleek andminimalist, and the 8+4 seating places suggest thatcollective experience and flavours are in the foreground here.

Watch as the camera floats slowly and quietly above the floor, appearing to dance along with Arthur to the videos hauntingly moving song “Sail” by AwolNation. The single is the driving song from the solo project by Aaron Bruno(formerly of Hometown Hero, Under The Influence of Giants and Insurgence). After you hear the song in the video, we suggest grabbing it for yourself, putting your headphones on and taking a few slow motion walks around your block at night so it can transform the world around you.
Az Arctic Monkeys első sikerét a „I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” című kislemezzel érte el, amivel első helyre kerültek az angol kislemez-eladási listán. Első nagylemezük, a Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not 2006 januárjában jelent meg, és a brit zenei történelem leggyorsabban fogyó debütáló lemezévé vált, ezzel felülmúlva az Oasis Definitely Maybe lemezét. A lemez nagy sikert aratott, és egyaránt megnyerte a 2006-osMercury Prizet és a 2007-es BRIT Awardsot a legjobb brit album kategóriában. A zenekar második lemeze aFavourite Worst Nightmare 2007. április 23-án jelent meg, és több mint kétszázhuszonötezer példányt adtak el belőle, valamint jelölték a Mercury Prize díjra. Az együttes továbbá 2008-ban megnyerte a legjobb brit zenekar, és a legjobb brit album címet is a BRIT Awardson.
Az Arctic Monkeys sikeréhez nagyban hozzájárult a rajongók által terjesztett demó felvételek, és az online fájlcserélők. Ők voltak az egyikei az első zenekaroknak, akik az Interneten keresztül terjedtek el, ezzel megmutatva a lehetőségét annak, amerre az új zenekarok elindulhatnak. Az együttes végül a Domino Records-szal szerződött le.
The Ivankas are dreamers and doers living in the fabulous city of Budapest in the middle of Central Europe, where the 20-year old fragile democracy is now facing a most serious paradigm shift. Through their creations with concrete, their affinity for the material and a constant search for new technological solutions, their work speaks volumes about their country of origin, and also about their approach to design.
Since its inception, IVANKA Studio has made a name for adding a design perspective to what is otherwise widely viewed as an industrial material. It is famous for its unique wall panels, FLASTER Tiles, for its special technology of monolith exposed staircases, for the Jankovits-Ivanka Concrete Sound audiophile loudspeaker design and high end engineering. IVANKA made its successful Milan Design Week debut with SEEYOU Gravestone in 2009. Embracing a 21th century taboo subject they presented AFTERLIFESTYLE – universally speaking spiritual design that transcends life. After being received with enormous enthusiasm last year at 100%Design London 2010, IVANKA’s FLASTER Tiles became an international success and were used in prestigious Liberty London’s newly renovated Beauty Hall with commissions also underway for Wahaca, Ganapati restaurants and Geronimo Inns pubs.
Pairing up with two young Hungarian fashion designers, Katalin Ivanka invented a new textile based on the esthetic qualities of concrete, and created a second segment of the first FASHION ’GENESIS’ Collection of Concrete wearables and accessories where real high performance concrete meets soft leather and textiles.
The IVANKA brand acts like a living organism that conceived and born, it enters relationships, has values, a unique identity and a personality. It loves to take risks and to improve based on both intuition and strategies.
2011 December IVANKA established its third company: IVANKA Factory Zrt. corporation. (Nearly ten years ago the two founders Andras and Katalin have started with IR-Comp BT. limited partnership, an already existing company taken over for the start of their brand new activity. 2011 January IVANKA Concrete KFT.,-an LTD. had also been founded for the division of the main export products.) Developing the small family business of husband and wife into a new professional corporate structure opened the door to investors and led to the opening of anAdvisory Board, a body of professionals from different fields of expertise to become involved in giving the Board meaningful assistance in its decisions and day-to-day life.

2012 őszén megnyitottuk a Jurányi Produkciós Közösségi Inkubátorház kapuit Budán, egy olyan miliőben, amelynek közelében akkor még nem volt színház vagy alkotóműhely.
Az intézmény célja egy aktív, működő háttér, egy kreatív alkotói bázis, szellemi műhely létrehozása, ahol számos produkció és projekt elő- és utóélete nyerhet biztonságot azáltal, hogy próbák, díszletmunka, jelmezkészítés, zártkörű munkabemutatók valamint raktározás, tárolás, irodai munka, pályázatírás folyhat itt.
A cél kettős: egyrészt szeretnénk egy stabil, közös otthont találni az egyre inkább széteső független színházi és alkotóművészeti szektornak, bízva abban, hogy az egy fedél alatti együttes munka, még termékenyebben sarkallja az alkotókat az összefogásra, a közös produkciók létrehozására. Másrészt szeretnénk kialakítani a budai miliőben egy olyan centrumot, ahol a színházbarát fiatalok akár csak egy kávé mellett vagy egy színházi előadáson szívesen eltöltenek pár órát, és aktív közösségi élettel töltik meg újra az elhagyott oktatási intézményt.
Jó estét ősz, Jó estét Dávid!
A múlheti “Amuser” vacsoránkat néhány technikai ok miatt áttettük November 6.-ára, Budapestre, amit a Bródy Studios Courtyard-ban rendezünk meg.
Szakonyi Dávid munkásságát már korábbról ismerve jutottunk arra az elhatározásra, hogy amint ideje és utazásai engedik, őt hívjuk meg hozzánk, vele pedig Titeket a Konyhakör legközelebbi vacsorájára. A vacsora összeállításában Dávid Európát átszelő kulináris világa maradéktalanul megmutatkozik. Hazai élményeiről tanúskodhat a Rosenstein vagy a Boscolo étterme a Szalon, a külföldiekről pedig a Cannes-i, Relais des Semaillers, ahonann éppen két hete ért haza egy kis időre, a következő állomás előtt, ezt a különleges vacsorát adva nekünk aBródy-ban.
Ha néhány szóban leírhatjuk, úgy az ősz, nemzetközi koncepción alapuló kuzin lesz a mostani Konyhakör témája, amelyre ezúttal egy harmincöt fős asztalt terítünk meg Nektek.

“Fotográfiám fő célja, az időtlen női szépség bemutatása a divat fényében, a modern múzsa ábrázolása egyszerű és letisztult formában, a klasszikus portréfotó gyökereiből táplálkozva – fogalmaz a fotóművész. – Számomra a szereplő személyiségének, habitusának, spirituszának bemutatása az elsődleges, a divat csak ezután következik. Egyre jobban vonz a szabad és kompromisszummentes alkotás, több önálló, hosszútávú projekten dolgozom jelenleg, és szeptemberben készülök bemutatni saját fotóművészeti, divat és kultúrális magazinomat, a Supernation-t.”
Kicsi, formás, finom, szinte a végtelenségig variálható, az Egyesült Államokban és Britanniában pedig olyan fontos kiegészítő, mint itthon a VIP-kártya. Utcán, coffee shopokban vagy épp ahol tetszik, az eredendően lengyel, majd pedig zsidó körökben világhírűvé vált péksütemény, bár nem a legördöngösebb ételek egyike, mégis nehéz kifogni az igazit. Egy csapat budapesti arc korábban ugyanerre a következtetésre jutott, és megcsinálták életük első bagelezőjét, a Budapest Bägelt, umlauttal.
