Anki Linde and Pierre Saalburg of Paris-based LSL Architects say to each his own limit—and that the couple who own this rambling Paris apartment happen to have a higher threshold than most. These clients—she’s a film director/writer, he’s co-owner of a satirical newspaper, and they have two kids—approached the remodel of their Rue de la Rochefoucauld quarters with a playful spirit, and the architects responded in kind. “Each space is designed as if it has it...

French Bob: A dose of vintage flair for the Triumph Bobber

The success of the Triumph Bobber has not gone unnoticed by the more savvy custom shops. It’s the fastest-selling motorcycle in the history of the British brand, but unfortunately it’s tricky to customize—because Triumph largely ‘got it right’ at the design stage. The French outfit BAAK has just finished this 2020-spec Bonneville Bobber 1200, and it looks superb. But there’s a bigger story than just the bike. Rémi Reguin, boss of the Lyon-based workshop, will open new premises in the USA next...

Watch Martin Scorsese’s Brand New Short Film, Made Entirely in His Office Under Quarantine

Most who saw the last feature by Martin Scorsese, 2019's The Irishman, saw it at home. That had to do with the fact that the budget came from Netflix, which surely aimed to get its not inconsiderable money's worth by offering the film on its own streaming service as soon as possible. If The Irishman's financing and distribution was a sign of the times, Scorsese's new short is even more so: shot on a smartphone by the famed director himself, it recently premiered on Mary Beard's BBC speci...

A Lime investor predicts only 2 or 3 scooter players will win after COVID-19, meaning there's going to be a major crunch in Europe

Scooter startups are at a crossroads with COVID-19 and potential capital scarcity forcing an increased focus on sustainability and careful use of cash. In the US, the market has matured, allowing two to three operators to thrive per city, but in Europe there are more than a dozen operators which investors say is impossible to sustain.  The re-opening of cities from lockdown is a litmus test of scooter companies' ability to scale and survive after the COVID-19 crisis.
