Ikepod was born 24 years ago and has since died not once, but twice (well, three times, sort of). It is now coming back for an overdue third coming. Joshua Munchow thinks that the third time’s a charm for this iconic brand from the 1990s.
Ikepod launched in 1994 without a history, so co-founder and designer Marc Newson could create his own playground. and that is exactly what he did. And there is no better example of his joyful design than the Ikepod Megapode launched in 1999.
The Phillips Hong Kong Watch Auction: FOUR particularly interested us due to the presence of a subset of 43 watches for sale called “43 Watches & Encounters: The Laurent Picciotto Collection of Contemporary Watches.” Please enjoy our commentary of the auction results for these timepieces.
The Saatchi Gallery on Kings Road in trendy Chelsea has played host to SalonQP in London for the past four years. It is a fantastic venue and a great place for the brands attending to showcase their wares.
What an eclectic mix of brands and watches on show this year, too! Come with me on a virtual tour.
Glass can also be incredibly beautiful and breathtaking. Exhibit A: the Ikepod Hourglass by Marc Newson. Without glass we would have lost ships at sea; we would never have seen the wonders of space or the marvels of the microscopic. The Ikepod hourglass begins with a long tube of perfectly clear borosilicate glass and continues with so much more. Including nanoballs.
