Does alan lo ever sleep? Don’t get us wrong—the spectacled superdad al­ways looks per­fectly rested and perky to boot—but be­tween his work with the Press Room Group, Dud­dell’s, Para Site, the Arts De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil and the Am­bas­sadors of De­sign, we’re flab­ber­gasted that he has time to do any­thing else at all. The past few months have seen him in Venice for the bi­en­nale, in New York for the Frieze Art Fair and in Basel for De­sign Mi­ami/basel. Now that Lo’s back on home turf, he’s hard at work on a new ca­sual din­ing con­cept with Bri­tish celebrity chef Tom Aikens, fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful re­launch of The Pawn. Lo says it will open at the end of the year. He’s also col­lab­o­rat­ing with renowned Ja­panese ar­chi­tect Sou Fujimoto to cre­ate a new re­tail des­ti­na­tion for the “con­tem­po­rary ur­ban male.” Called the Third Street Ar­cade, Lo sus­pects it will be launched in Novem­ber. Phew, we’re ex­hausted—but ex­cited.

cool, calm and col­lected Alan Lo al­ways has some­thing to smile about
