CVSTOS Challenge Dani Pedrosa

CVSTOS recently made a new partnership with Spanish MotoGP racer Dani Pedrosa, resulting in a limited edition timepiece, co-created by Pedrosa himself (together with watch designer Antonio Terranova). The watch is inspired by the world of motorbike racing and it’s a vision of style and technique, very light and powerful in the same time.

Chess stools, by Giorgio Bonaguro

Italian designer Giorgio Bonaguro had the idea of crafting a series of stools shaped represented by traditional chess pieces. You will find the Bishop (“Alfiere”), the Queen (“Regina”) and the Pawn (“Pedone”), made from solid scented cedarwood and having a great design (for example, the Bishop is cut by a diagonal that serves as a magazine rack). Expect for more and maybe you will complete a chess table on your terrace.

we love it, so we also love this little monster who can take incredible shots, even if it measures only 2,2 by 3,9 by 1,2 inches (98.5 mm x 54.9 mm x 30.4 mm),
with a total weight of 6,1 ouncers. Aluminium dials, metal finish, 3.0 inch touch screen, wi-fi connectivity and a price of 749,99 on Amazon.

Petiole Hammock

What’s better than resting your bones in a hammock, part of a gorgeous landscape, having a cocktail by your side and… let’s stop here?! You can find hammocks all the way. But a hammock with a 35.000 USD value is harder. Made in Sweden and a big hit at the The Maison & Object Paris design show, in Paris.
But what makes this hammock so special? 304 stainless steel pole and a super protective UV canopy. Plus the fact that if you have a maximum of 250 kilos, you safetely enjoy it: it’s soooo sturdy! Last but not least, Petiole is a hammock built for two. How would it look in your backyard?

Carbon Dream

Minerva J.M. Brabazon

It’s about Minerva, a Belgian car company, founded by Sylvain de Jong and with it’s golden era between 1902 and 1938. And it’s about this come-back, named J.M. Brabazon, first car since 1956, a beauty with a V12 engine under the hood and with a maximum speed of 248 mph (400 km/h), way too similar with celebrities like McLaren P1 or Ferrari LaFerrari. What else? Carbon fiber, 19-inch alloy wheels, full LED headlights. But wait! J.M. Brabazon is only a prototype. When it’s officially launched we’ll let you know the price. So start saving!
