Coordinated by architect and designer Rodolfo Dordoni, it’s a collection of furniture that perfectly balances classic and contemporary – an aspect synonymous with Italian design.

Tea connoisseurs will be glad to know that established French brand Kusmi Tea is finally available in Singapore. The company uses only whole leaves from tea-producing countries such as China, India and Sri Lanka, to produce its original secret recipe and exclusive blends with distinctive flavours. There are over 90 varieties of teas, from the classic black and green teas to those infused with hints of delicate spices, fruit and flowers, to enjoy any time of day. The latest exclusive launch to look out for is the white tea by Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse – the rare leaves used are harvested by hand only once a year, and comes in a refined textured, white-and-gold canister.
