Catch­ing the eye this month.

The 44-me­tre So­laris su­pery­acht con­cept from Duffy London prom­ises silent run­ning and a 45-knot top speed, with ethanol power, so­lar pan­els and wa­ter­jets. It boasts a com­pos­ite plan­ing hull and six elec­tric mo­tors driv­ing wa­ter­jets to har­ness the so­lar power. With bat­tery tech­nol­ogy pro­gress­ing in leaps and bounds, the de­sign­ers say this could be a fea­si­ble project by 2020. An ethanol-pow­ered tur­bine pro­vides short bursts of ex­tra grunt.

Part of Boca do Lobo’s Me­ta­mor­pho­sis se­ries of fur­ni­ture is this rein­ven­tion of its Di­a­mond Side­board. Cre­ated in com­pos­ite wood and lacquer, It’s a beau­ti­ful piece, if faintly alarm­ing at first sight be­cause of the gath­er­ing of in­sects, cast from brass and nickel coated. “It started as a game be­tween de­sign­ers – who could make the same look dif­fer­ent? We laid out a se­lec­tion of bugs on the piece and thought, why not?” says Marco Costa, head of de­sign from Boca do Lobo. A con­cave and con­vex mir­ror com­plete the range. The piece re­tails for €33,130.

World’s Finest In­ter­na­tional ski re­sorts has teamed up with Bode Miller and Bomber Skis, to of­fer a signed set of hand-crafted skis to guests at the Eagle’s Nest chalet. The six-bed prop­erty is in Kitzbühel. Shown are Bomber’s All Moun­tain Woodie, cre­ated in sand­wich con­struc­tion, which re­tail from $2,500.
