What Islanders’ Belmont Arena Can Learn From Western Arenas

This past week, I watched the New York Islanders take on the Vegas Golden Knights, Arizona Coyotes, and Colorado Avalanche. Each city is completely different from the other and that personality is reflected in their hockey arenas. The Islanders are slated to open Belmont Arena before the 2021-22 season, and they too will look to add the Long Island identity into their home. What can Isles ownership take away from the west and make Belmont one of the nicest places to watch a hockey game? Vega...

Danish Light: 8 Ideas to Steal from a New Restaurant in Copenhagen by a Studio on the Rise

Midway through a particularly bleak New York City winter, I’ve been fantasizing about a potential escape—most recently, to Copenhagen. A few weeks ago I was planning an imaginary/hopeful trip, looking at airfares, and poking around the Internet for new hotels and wine bars to try when I stumbled upon Hverdagen—a new restaurant in the city’s industrial-cool Kødbyen neighborhood with warm, clean-lined interiors, paper lanterns, and terra cotta-colored details—and added it to my wish-list itinerary...

Pensa Tackles Aluminum Luggage Redesign for Zero Halliburton

Erle P. Halliburton wasn't an industrial designer, but he was both an industrialist and a designer. In the 1930s he traveled to various oil fields in America, implementing the new method of oil well cementing he'd invented; the frequent travel led him to design his own suitcase, which was made from a then-newfangled material called aluminum.The suitcases caught on, and in 1938 Halliburton launched his own company to produce them. Movie star Marlene Dietrich was a fan, and either Halliburton form...

How a Lakers coaching staff of strangers blended to lead the West’s top team

CHICAGO — The Lakers might not be where they are today if not for a very crucial task that helps keep them humming. It’s an area that falls under the expertise of assistant coach Mike Penberthy, who once won a title with the Shaq-and-Kobe-era Lakers. When coaching staff meetings invariably bog down with the minutiae of game planning, he’s often the one who makes the decision to shake things up. “I’ll be like, ‘You know what, I think we need some donuts today,’” he said. “I’ll grab one of the you...
