Escape the winter blues in the Hygge Hideaway at Regent’s Place

If, Like SEEN, you long for warmer weather this February, go and experience the Danish way of life with the launch of the Hygge Hideaway, a mood boosting pop up for anyone working in or visiting Regent’s Place; the busy work and social hub located between King’s Cross and Paddington. Open until 16th February, the Hygge Hideaway is about taking a moment out of a busy day to stop, breathe and enjoy life’s small pleasures. Situated within an inflatable heated dome in Regent’s Place Plaza, the pop up will provide a haven in the heart of the city for visitors to curl up in fur throws, mood lighting and cosy surroundings.

A number of intimate Nordic-inspired craft workshops, including a Scandi-style Valentine’s Lino Print workshop will enliven the Hideaway. Guests can also learn how to Hygge with tips written by self-care expert Hannah Massarella, to help make the winter months more enjoyable. Visitors will be handed special postcards to take away, so they can practise the tips at home. Therapeutic and restorative yoga sessions will also take place on 16th February, allowing guests to ease themselves into their afternoon and balance an active lifestyle.

Renowned bakery Ole & Steen will be present on 15th February serving authentic Scandinavian treats. Dishes will include open sandwiches served on carrot rye with fillings such as Rare roast beef with pickled cucumber and remoulade; Line caught hot smoked salmon and egg mayo; and Danish blue cheese with pickled pear and rye chips, alongside their popular sweet dish, cinnamon social – a shareable Danish pastry with cinnamon and vanilla custard. A range of herbal tea will also be available to try from Joe’s Tea.

New Wave Clay: Ceramic Design, Art and Architecture by Tom Morris – SEEN Reviews

This lavishly photographed book is very seductive. The ceramics herein are beautiful, strange, monumental, quirky or minimalist but having drawn the reader in, the book asks the pertinent question: are art and craft completely separate in their aesthetic and cultural sensibilities?
