Designer Profile: William Sawaya

Eschewing the notion that art is in the eye of the beholder, architect and designer William Sawaya considers the inherent artistry of anything—be it a painting, a candlestick, a table lamp, or a chair—to be connected to the expertise and dedication of the artist (or designer). He believes that things made carefully, with respect for the material, attention to detail, and deep commitment to craft, have intrinsic value as art, especially since they are “practically unique, strongly individual and ...

Bombs and blood feuds: the wave of explosions rocking Sweden’s cities

Incidents involving explosives have risen to crisis levels in a country where the crime rate is lowThe first thing Daniel Georén registered was a cacophony of car alarms.

What’s behind a phobia of holes?

Fear of clusters of holes and cracks, called trypophobia, may be evolutionary in origin. But as details are shared, it is becoming a social contagion. By Chrissie GilesJulia was around 11 years old the first time it happened. She let herself into her dad’s apartment in Malmö, Sweden, dropped her schoolbag and flopped on to the sofa. She switched on the TV and turned to her favourite channel in time for the cartoons. The screen filled up with a cartoon man with a huge head. On his chin, in place ...

World Juniors Should be Held in Winnipeg

There’s no more passionate fanbase in the hockey world than in Winnipeg. Attend a game at Bell-MTS Place when the Winnipeg Jets are in town and you’ll find ample evidence of that. The Winnipeg White Out in the playoffs drew national attention and became nearly as big a story as the playoff run itself. The decibel meter rose to levels usually reserved for stadiums that fit four times as many people and the crowds were a marketer’s dream. Now imagine that same atmosphere, that same level of ...

The European Holiday: 14 Ways to Decorate the House, from France, Sweden, and More

Each year we find ourselves taken by some new tilt on the holiday decorations: one year it was Scandi style, with clean-lined ornaments and plenty of charm; other years we’ve looked toward no-cost and small-space decor. This year, I’m planning a late-December trip to the snowy storybook city of Stockholm, so I’ve been inspired by the (varied) old traditions of western Europe. From France to Sweden to Ireland, here are a few ways to decorate for the holidays like the Europeans do. England: Trim ...

Table for none: When food turns you off

MALMÖ, Sweden — The idea that anything labeled “food” can be described as “disgusting” is a minefield, running up against cultural tastes and personal preferences, not to mention the shrinking availability of some countries to feed all their people. But clearly, if every human had a cornucopia of the world’s edibles laid out on a […]

The Disgusting Food Museum Curates 80 of the World’s Most Repulsive Dishes: Maggot-Infested Cheese, Putrid Shark & More

Often we get to know each other by talking which foods we like. Perhaps even more often, we get to know each other by talking about which foods we hate. Entertaining disagreements tend to arise from such discussions, usually around traditionally divisive comestibles like anchovies, cilantro, brussel sprouts, or the Japanese dish of fermented soybeans known as natto. But however many of us prefer to avoid them, these foods all look more or less conventional compared to the dishes curated ...

Violence breaks out at symphony over concert-goer's loud snack bag

I remember when I was a young kid, I sat in a movie theater watching That's Entertainment with my friend and her family. Bored, I fiddled with my candy, and after unwrapping one too many pieces, my irritated friend's mom snatched it all away from me. Silence was restored. But with adults who don't know each other, restoring silence in a theater can take an ugly turn. Such as it did last week, when a man trying to enjoy the symphony in Malmo, Sweden couldn't take the sounds of his neighbor's scr...
