By Anna Dowsland in New Illustration on Thursday 23 May 2013

Misery City is a new surreal noir comic from Markosia Publishing in London. The illustrations, by Vassilis Gogtzilas, are beautifully daring and dark. The story is written by Kostas Zachopoulos and tells the tale of Max Murray, an unlucky trench coat detective, forever damned in the concrete labyrinth of Misery City. Hunted by Hell’s lurking […]

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Thursday 23 May 2013

Chinese street artist DALeast states on his profile that he is “currently a human being”, which seems a bit of an understatement seeing how he creates all these ambitious spraypainted mural works wherever he goes. He’s been out and about in London in the last few weeks, doing some eye-popping 3D-like damage in places like […]

Seemed like quite a while back since we mentally hyperventilated over the fact that Wish.co.uk actually organized zombie-fighting adventures in malls, so you can imagine how thrilled we were to find out that they’ve now emerged with even more zombie fun. There’s the Zombie Boot Camp, where you can learn how to shoot zombies down […]

THE HELLO TOMORROW SERIES: No cold feet at this boutique hotel

Zac Editor

By Zac in Cool Travel on Saturday 30 March 2013

Luxury boutique hotel Eccleston Square Hotel claims to be London’s most high tech hotel, and it’s easy to see why. While the rooms are gorgeous enough, they are also fitted out with 46” high-definition 3D plasma TVs, surround sound systems, iPod docking stations, VoIP phones and your very own iPad to tinker with. For those of us who hate cold bathroom floors, the marble bathrooms come with under-floor heating. If that doesn’t spoil its guests, we don’t know what will.

THE HELLO TOMORROW SERIES: Lights out, now go to sleep… we mean eat

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Food and Packaging on Saturday 23 March 2013

The city of London is a pretty exciting place visually, so it seems almost counterproductive to dine in the dark. But that’s exactly what you’ll do at Dans le Noir? London, where you can experience the world in pitch black while blind waiters serve you your organic meal. It’s supposed to help sharpen your other senses in the meantime, so we can’t think of a better place to start training for super-sensory powers than dining in the dark. Unfortunately, the restrooms are fully lit for safety reasons, so you can’t practise there.

THE HELLO TOMORROW SERIES: This London gallery is a work of art itself

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Architecture on Friday 22 March 2013

The inspiration may be water, but the Roca London Gallery designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, with its minimalistic undulating contoured walls and neutral, monochromatic hues, is so other-worldly that it calls to mind a spaceship instead. Even the tiles have wavy edges. Most of the galley’s furniture, from the reception desk to shelves, are made of glass-reinforced plastics.
