We are a bit behind with this as the event ended on Sunday, but we still wanted to recognise the island of Grenada’s achievement of having taken part in the 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia for the first time in the island's history after three consecutive appearances at the Art Biennales in 2015, 2017 and 2019.

The theme for 2021 “how will we live together” encouraged architects to imagine spaces where people can generously live as a community and Grenada participated as an official National Pavilion. Entitled 'COethos', the exhibition presented the recently completed parliament building located at Mount Weldale, overlooking the capital of St. George’s, the Carenage and Grand Anse. It was curated by Marco Ballarin, Stefano Tornieri, and Massimo Triches of the Babau Bureau Collective and led by local architect Bryan Bullen, co-founder of the Caribbean Office of Co-Operative Architecture (COCOA).

Designed by Benjamin Hubert, this innovative, layered mask takes its cue from athleisure in a bid to encourage use on the move.

Bermuda National Gallery is currently holding 'Flotsam + Jetsam: The Cost of Modern Living', a solo exhibition by Meredith Andrews in conjunction with Keep Bermuda Beautiful (KBB), one of the oldest charitable organisations on the island. As part of the fundraising programme for the organisation, Andrews is showing nine archival prints, the proceeds from the sale of which will benefit both the Bermuda National Gallery and KBB. In addition to the pieces on display, twenty fine art prints of each artwork numbered and signed by the artist will be available for purchase from the Bermuda National Gallery exclusively, and can be ordered via their online store.

Our last feature this week on Spanish designer Jaime Hayon has been languishing in our drafts since December 2020 so fittingly it's an older piece. Hayon created the Monkey side table in 2015 for furniture brand BD Barcelona.

The simple, graphic Smile Stool designed by Jaime Hayon for Benchmark is a joyful and expressive piece.

We've just realised we have quite the backlog of Jaime Hayon posts for some reason, so we have decided to get them out of the way... by featuring all of them this week. 

Known for his whimsical and fantastical creations, Hayon has produced a limited edition collection of decorative objects with renowned crystal manufacturer Baccarat.
