Chef Corey Lee partners Hyundai to open a new restaurant in Singapore

Here’s another cool, new spot to add to your restaurant hit list. Na Oh, which translates to ‘moving from inside out’ in Korean, will be a cultural destination for hansik cuisine, craft and design. Set to open this June at the Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Centre Singapore, the restaurant will be led by San Francisco-based three Michelin-starred chef, Corey Lee (Benu and San Ho Won), marking his first project in Southeast Asia. Na Oh will also be the catalyst for the centre’s two-storey vertical smart farm, the world’s first robotics smart farm that will be open to all visitors.

The world’s first collection of diamond-set electrical switches

It’s an electrifying idea, setting switches with diamonds and gemstones and turning them into works of art. Created for the wealthy who care about a house that looks good, the collection is the work of S by Salanitro and Pirker Electricité, two Geneva-established brands that redefine everyday objects with elegant sophistication. It is made entirely in Switzerland, with seven models (CHF 7,000 to CHF 70,000) currently available. Each switch combines bold innovation with centuries-old craftsmanship, and can be personalised to complement the style of any space.

This Timur Bozca-designed yacht will be launched in 2025

Enata Marine, the shipyard behind the world’s first flying yacht, is now constructing the first yacht for Mirarri, a new luxury yacht brand by Rashed Al Shaali. Designed by the award-winning Timur Bozca, the 16.7-metre vessel will incorporate will be the epitome of elegance and innovation, with carbon fibre, Kevlar and titanium for lightness and Enata’s proprietary ‘Wingman’ system for remote control of various parts of the yacht. Other cool features include a dynamic glass dome that will bathe the interior in natural light, and a bespoke BBQ and bar for al fresco dining with a view. The first Mirarri yacht is expected to be ready in 2025.

The return of the dragon

H. Moser & Cie.‘s Streamliner Centre Seconds Matrix Green, known as the ‘Green Dragon’, is making a comeback. Since its release in 2020, it’s earned praises far and wide, quickly becoming an iconic piece before going on a break to further develop its aesthetic and technical features. Thankfully, that’s over, and the Green Dragon is back with a new self-winding calibre HMC 201 and updates, such as a wider opening for the gear train and winding system to be viewed, and a bevelled rotor that still promises a power reserve of three days. It also comes with a brand-new ‘Purple Haze’ colourway that’s equally striking. Yours for CHF 21,900.
