HOW TO EXPERIENCE HEDONISTIC LIFESTYLES

Luxury comes in many forms and has no ready-made standard solutions. Individual dreams of comfort, beauty, and functionality, brought to perfection, go far beyond basic needs. But they allow you to experience hedonistic lifestyles as an ideal form of interaction between your vision with the distinct and creative approach of professionals who are able to put them into execution

And when it comes to architecture and design, such professionals are Studioforma, this year´s Multiple Winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the categories of The Best Luxury Architect Studio in Switzerland and The Best Luxury Furniture and Homeware for “PAM chair ” in Switzerland.

The story of the premium architecture company Studioforma began in 2002 when two young architects, Alex Leuzinger and his former business partner, became business partners and founded their own globally operating architecture and design studio. Both of them received their professional education at the prestigious Swiss university for science and technology ETH Zurich. During their productive collaboration, the partners built a team of top professionals and created an impressive portfolio of architecture, retail interior, and furniture design projects.

Several years later, Alex Leuzinger bought out his business partner’s share and became the sole owner of Studioforma. Today, he and his team continue to successfully develop the company, confirming its leading status in the field of luxury architecture and design in Switzerland and worldwide. For nearly 20 years, this team of passionate and experienced architects, interior architects, planners, and designers has taken a holistic approach to creating spaces and objects that perfectly meet the needs of the company’s affluent clients.

Studioforma’s extensive experience includes innovative architectural projects (design and construction of buildings from scratch, restoration of existing buildings, reconstruction of facades, expansion of buildings, preservation of historic buildings), interior design, development of spaces for retail (including concepts for famous luxury brands Swarovski, Hugo Boss, Hublot, etc.). When working on each project, the Studioforma team puts the client’s vision at the forefront. Taking the client’s wishes as a basis, the company creates and shapes properties and objects that meet the highest standards of precision and perfection, but the main criterion remains the client’s ultimate satisfaction with the result.

The company’s DESIGNLAB is a workspace where the boldest creative ideas for creating products that combine technological innovation and craftsmanship are embodied. The list of DESIGNLAB’s works includes projects on the creation of designer lighting devices, household items, headphones, and furniture.

One of Studioforma’s most outstanding projects was the PAM chair, a piece of furniture developed in collaboration with Italian manufacturer Meroni & Colzani and presented at Milan Design Week 2016. The PAM chair was highly acclaimed by the design industry and received high praise from the expert committee of Luxury Lifestyle Awards.

The collection includes handmade wooden tubular chairs, armchairs, chaise longue, and sofas imitating the structure of a palm leaf. Made of oak, the pieces are characterized by their impeccable finish and slender, feminine silhouette. The PAM chairs have a curved, organic shape, with the seat and back merging seamlessly into one. The chair creates a sense of relaxation and well-being and is the perfect solution for luxury residential spaces, modern restaurants, and tropical hotels.

WITH LUXURY 778 Ltd

Purchasing luxury real estate in one of the most magnificent places on earth is a transaction in which two parties, the seller and the buyer, play key roles. However, a huge responsibility falls on the shoulders of a third party, the companion, who takes care of making sure that the old and new homeowners are happy in the process and at the end of the transaction.

The real estate agent should become not just a broker but also a mentor and sometimes a trusted friend who will consider all the needs of both parties and lead them to the desired results. Such mentors are the dedicated specialists of Luxury 778 Ltd, this year’s winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury Real Estate Brokerage in Switzerland.

Real estate agency for ultra-high-net-worth individuals Luxury 778 Ltd was founded in 2012, but the idea of the company and the formation of the network arose long before that. The founders of the agency are father and son, Stefan and Daniel Ittig. Both came to this with a solid background in real estate under their belt. Stefan Ittig has over 40 years’ experience in building and remodeling homes, and Daniel has worked in architectural offices for 14 years, most of which were related to high-end real estate.

Stefan supported his son’s idea of starting their own company. They became business partners, managed to combine an innovative approach with an in-depth knowledge of the industry and offer distinguished clients from around the world a unique and comprehensive range of services for the sale of luxury real estate in the most attractive regions of Switzerland.

And if you need to sell or buy a luxury property in an exclusive area of Switzerland, you can also appreciate the benefits of working with Luxury 778 Ltd right now.

As a seller, you will have the assurance of your home’s safety, as Luxury 778 Ltd thoroughly checks each potential buyer by a rigorous qualification process before viewing the house. Therefore, only those few people who will be really interested in buying your property, and not the crowds of people who just want to look or even have more malicious intentions, will get into your home.

If you are the buyer, the experts at Luxury 778 Ltd will get to know your wishes for your new home and use all their resources to make your dream of the perfect home a reality. With a minimum of time and effort, you will find what you are looking for. On average, clients of Luxury 778 Ltd find their dream home in 1-3 viewings.

Given these factors, the company’s impeccable reputation among clients and industry professionals is recognised. As connoisseurs of services of the highest quality, the Luxury Lifestyle Awards experts have carefully studied the activities of Luxury 778 Ltd and appreciated the agency’s achievements.

With a passion for luxury, the team at Luxury 778 Ltd surrounds each client with care and attention not only while looking for a home. The new homeowners can count on assistance in getting to know the new place of residence, its surroundings, advice on all questions related to the property, as well as in matters of repairs and construction works.

PARENTING IS AN EXCITING JOURNEY

Parenting is an exciting journey that comes with its unique set of responsibilities – your child’s safety and comfort topping that list. While you want the best of everything for your little one, be it experiences or products; you’ve got to make sure that you’re making the right choices. Creating an environment for your kids to grow and thrive in is a great responsibility for parents.

Evolur products are designed to help parents create safe, top-quality, magical spaces for their kids throughout their growing years. This year, the brand évolur has won the Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury Kid Beds in the World.

Evolur is a part of the DOM Family, one of the largest and most trusted baby care brands across the United States of America. The brainchild of two brothers, Mark and Joey Srour, who opened a small baby products retail store in Brooklyn, New York in 1988, Evolur has, along with their team of industry experts, always strived to innovate and provide their customers with top-notch products and a stress-free buying experience. Their hard work and dedication have helped the company expand into five different brands – Evolur, Dream On Me, Sweetpea Baby, Slumber Baby, and Kidiway.

The common thread that ties all DOM Family brands together is the desire to create a wide range of quality products that meet the needs of families and be a complete baby care solution for parents across the continent. They design and manufacture everything from cribs to bassinets, walkers, highchairs, strollers, toddler beds, and many more products. Evolur is the DOM Family’s luxury brand, which designs and manufactures premium 5-in-1 convertible cribs, nursery collections, gliders, rocking chairs, strollers, high chairs, crib mattresses, and rugs. It was Evolur’s focus on safety, attention to detail, and their refined craftsmanship that caught the attention of the Luxury Lifestyle Awards experts.

 

 

 

 

 

Evolur upholds the concept of affordable luxury and aims to offer premium quality, safe, and thoughtfully designed products for dream nurseries. For over 30 years, the brand has been designing products that provide a seamless mix of form and function, providing long-term value to families across the United States.

It would be safe to say that nursery products by Evolur have great customer satisfaction rates. A large customer base, including celebrities, prefer these stylish and exquisite high-quality products to furnish their nurseries. They are attracted by the handcrafted design details, exclusive finishes, and long-term convertibility. The cribs are designed to transform into stylish toddler beds, day beds, and full-size beds with a headboard & footboard.

Each of the Evolur furniture collections is designed to evolve with the kid from the infancy to adulthood. They represent a perfect blend of impeccable quality and innovative design with luxurious versatility. The convertible cribs have three mattress height adjustment features to lower the mattress as the child begins to sit or stand. The beds have a strong and sturdy wood construction to ensure long and reliable performance for your little one’s comfort.

Each of the cribs is thoroughly tested by independent laboratories for compliance with all US and Canadian bedding regulations. Striving to make the safest products for the nursery, Evolur designers and engineers create beds according to the highest standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), and American Society for testing and materials (ASTM).
