Last year we provided readers with the first images of the US$15 million Adastra superyacht being constructed in China. The incredible watercraft has since traveled 4,000 nautical miles (7,400 km) through the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand and earlier this month was presented with the 2013 World Superyacht Award for Most Innovative Design.  Read More

The new art installation expresses Jaguar's future design language

It may look like the strangest concept vehicle ever, but the new art installation unveiled by Jaguar as part of Clerkenwell Design Week in London is, according to the company, a “vision of Jaguar's future design language.” Created by Royal College of Art students in conjunction with Jaguar Advanced Design in Whitley, Coventry, the installation was the winner out of nine entries in the Jaguar Advanced Design competition.  Read More

The Harry Winston Opus XIII features 59 minute hands, 11 hour hands and a concealed 'HW'

The average watch uses a simple formula of rotating inner hour and minute hands pointing at fixed numerical designations. The Harry Winston Opus XIII, the result of a collaboration with renowned watchmaker Ludovic Ballouard, turns that simple formula on its ear, using an outer ring of 59 moving minutes and 11 moving hours.  Read More

The We5S adds a luxury mechanical timepiece to the iPhone 5

For some time now, the rise of the mobile phone has been seen by many as the death knell of the watch. Why, they ask, would anyone carry around a device that just tells the time when their phone can do that and much more? Smartwatches look set to bring the wristwatch back in style by bringing smartphone functions to a wristwatch form factor, but WATCHe of Switzerland has taken a different approach to combine the two with the We5S – a luxury mechanical watch set in a re-positionable frame designed to fit the iPhone 5.  Read More

The new version of the Numi also includes ambient lighting

The toilet is often referred to as "the throne," and Kohler is almost taking that expression literally with the introduction of its new Numi model. We've already seen the Kohler C3 toilet seat, which was pretty advanced in its own right, but the Numi certainly wears the crown as one of the most feature-packed toilets we've ever seen, and it comes with a US$6,650 price tag to match.  Read More

The Mo Ventus luxury house concept from Todd Theodore Fix of FIXd Architecture/Design

Architects are increasingly designing houses which produce as much energy as they consume, which has led to a plethora of innovative sustainable homes, some conventional in design and some decidedly not. The Mo Ventus luxury house concept from Todd Theodore Fix of FIXd Architecture/Design falls squarely in the latter category, with plans that call for retractable screens that regulate heat and light, along with a curved design to harness wind power more efficiently.  Read More

The BMW K1600GTL (Photo: Loz Blain)

The BMW K1600GTL is a luxury mega-tourer. It falls into that category of bikes that has next to zero relevance to me at this point in my riding life cycle, as I've got no current plans to circumnavigate Australia or have a crack at the Saddlesore 1000. And yet I've actually been hanging out to get my hands on one of these things, because it features what I'd call the single coolest innovation I've seen on a motorcycle since I first put aside my prejudices and felt just how good the Piaggio MP3 tilting 3-wheeler is to ride. It's the second coolest thing I've thrown a leg over this week.  Read More

The Kayak 1 – if you have to ask, you can't afford it

Rich folks ... they have their immaculately-appointed yachts and classic wooden motor launches, but they pretty much have to use the same sit-on-top kayaks as the rest of us, right? Not if the Kayak 1 has anything to say about it.  Read More

The Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Woody-Tailgate Trailer adds a touch of class to any tailgate ...

The Neiman Marcus fantasy gift guide is famous for offering extravagant items for the person who has everything – last year's guide included the Jetlev flyer and a special edition McLaren 12c Spider, for example. Also on the list was an item that at first glace might seem a bit pedestrian in comparison – a caravan. But the Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Woody-Tailgate Trailer is luxury all the way, unfolding into a luxury rolling bar complete with a giant ice chest and leather appointments that ensure it will add a touch of class to any tailgate party.  Read More
