London’s openings continue apace, with Resource office’s most excitedly anticipated being the first UK outpost of Ace Hotel. Why have we worked ourselves into such a frenzy about yet another design hotel in London? For us, Ace Hotels have defined an era of hotel design: an eclectic, perfectly executed mix of urban graphics and art with vintage and bespoke products, usually with the city’s hottest chef sweating it out in the kitchen.
The London branch will be no different. Located at 100 Shoreditch High Street and opening this September, the new hotel will fuse together UK craftsmanship with contemporary haute-design. Those residing in its 265 rooms will be able to slip under covers exclusively designed for the hotel by APC and partake in culinary excellence from the founders of East London favourite Bistrotheque.

For the Resource team, travel is not cheap. It’s not a right, it’s a privilege and we feel very lucky to travel and explore the world in the name of our work. One of our greatest and guiltiest pleasures is to turn left on an aircraft – to arrive at one’s destination in style and comfort, feeling refreshed and ready for the trip ahead, is a joy. And while low-cost airlines have enabled international travel for the masses, for us this pile ‘em high attitude to travel cheapens the experience. As the airlines desperately try to scrape profits from their industry, more and more commentators and experts are coming up with ideas to put more bums on seats. And removing traditional seats is an idea being mooted with alarming frequency. While Ryanair’s boss might have raised the idea with his tongue firmly in cheeky, Italian airline cabin design company Aviointeriors has put the ‘Stand Up Cabin’ idea onto the drawing board and come up with the Skyrider concept, creating a pitch measuring less than 23 inches based on the seat of a scooter. And while its inventiveness is to be applauded, if the choice is to travel in comfort or travel standing up, we’d rather wait and save our flying time.
As an antithesis to this high density seating, our review of the marvellous Emirates’ Airbus A380 will be going live soon.
