The story behind the design can and must be as beautiful as the design itself.
Honest by. was launched in January 2012 by Award-winning designer and art director Bruno Pieters. Honest by is the world’s first 100% transparent company where customers should be able to make the most informed choices possible.
The packaging and graphic design of the “Wisdom Candle” is minimal and graphical, using bold primary colors and straight lines, clear typography and Bruno Pieters quotes. The candles were designed and conceived somehow simultaneously with the interior design of the new Honest by. flagship store that opens last December in Antwerp. Their design reflects also Bauhaus-style which can be found in the accessories-collection (scarves, 3D printed accessories, wisdom postcards…)
“Amber-Pepper” is made with 90% organic wax and is available as limited edition at Honest by. in Antwerp and at selected Calming Park retailers.

FOUR SEASONS MALDIVES
Kuda Magic + Endless Blu 2 is the new bespoke music compilation inspired by the two award-winning Four Seasons Resorts Maldives : Kuda Huraa and Landaa Giravaaru.
Compiled and arranged by prolific Swiss music-designer Olivier Rohrbach in conjunction with Hello Stranger, the selection has been created in response to guest demand, following the huge success of its 2012 predecessor.
Featuring two distinct yet complementary selections, the double CD echoes the pulse and pace, sounds and spirit of Four Seasons Resorts Maldives. Kuda Magic reflects the Maldives’ exotic location and its fantastic fusion of influences: Indian, Asian and Arabic. Endless Blu – drawing its title from Landaa Giraavaru’s Blu Bar - channels a more "modern Maldives," elegant and effortlessly cool, moving from lazy chilled electronic to more lounge-friendly beats.
“The vibe at Four Seasons Maldives Resorts is quite magical – for this second volume I felt drawn to a synthesis of sounds that reflected its local and international influences, and musical melting pot experience,” explains Rohrbach, who also moonlights as an international DJ, producer and journalist. “It’s a sleek, sophisticated album with a fabulous, dream-like and eclectic soundtrack, designed to evoke perfect memories of Four Seasons Maldivian paradises when back home.”
Compilation highlights include Chris Coco’s incredible remix of the Maldivian song Reethi Raje, recorded in Malé especially for this CD; a chill-out version of the single Sunlight by The Magician; and Here for you by Gorgon City, one of the UK’s most acclaimed new dance acts, featuring vocals by Laura Welsh.
Four Seasons Resorts Maldives Regional Vice President Armando Kraenzlin praises Rohrbach on his slick second selection: “Our first collaboration with Oliver was a huge success and prompted some incredible feedback from our guests. Music is so evocative and a great catalyst for relaxation but by encapsulating the essence of a place in such a personal and expressive way, Oliver’s selections have the power to resonate even more deeply. Volume 2 is an equally beautiful tribute and we can’t wait to share it with our guests.”
Available in all guest rooms at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa and Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, and for sale in the Resort shops.

OUD – BLACK EDITION
OUD, one the new scent of the Black Edition's trilogy, photographed at Hotel Edition London.
Oud oil is distilled from agarwood which is one of the most precious and expensive natural raw materials in the world. Oud wood is often burned in the incense-filled temples of Bhutan and its perfume has gained great cultural significance.
Calming Park’s ode to Oud evoques the deep and vibrant artisanal traditions of the Middle East. The nargamota oils, the amber notes combined by the cosy accents of oud, cedar and santal woods make it a magnetic-chic elixir that a scent adventurist will love.
Available at selected Calming Park stockists from fall 2014.

KUDA MAGIC & ENDLESS BLU
A musical bouquet inspired by Four Seasons Resorts Maldives
Compiled and arranged by Swiss music-designer, Olivier Rohrbach, in conjunction with OM Records, the double CD features two distinct yet complementary selections that reflect Four Seasons Resorts Maldives most evocative venues: Kuda Huraa’s Island Spa – a private isle dedicated to renewal and repose– and Landaa Giraavaru’s Blu Sunset Lounge, where sea meets sky across a two-kilometre lagoon.
“When I visited Four Seasons Maldives Resorts, I was drawn to these two different but equally enveloping areas,” explains Rohrbach, who also moonlights as an international DJ, producer and journalist. “In reflection, Endless Blu is a lazy, sexy, eclectic mix with an accent on up-tempo songs, inspired by feet in the sand and basilfennel cocktails. Kuda Magic is more spa-inspired, incorporating the Night Spa and its open-air lunar rituals into a relaxing mix, sometimes ethno-oriented, sometimes mysterious, but always with a soft dreamy touch.”
Kuda Magic + Endless Blu is available in all guestrooms at Four Seasons Resort Kuda Huraa and Four Seasons Resort Landaa Giraavaru and for sale inthe Resort shops.
