ems and the application of age-old ideas. While born into a family of successful and creative bankers, Messel’s interests ran towards the arts from an early age, experimenting in all manner of mediums, from drawing and painting to fabrics, wax, and paper mâché. His fifty-year-long career, launched in 1925 with a mask collection created during his student years at Slade School of Art, would traverse a broad field of artistic endeavors, from theatrical stage design to film sets and on into the world of interior design and architecture. At each stage, he would prove a master of an eccentric romanticism, defying reality to create a vision of delicate whimsy and elegance.

Dottling Luxury Safes...Legendary for Engineering...

llector’s Room. Naturally, those who have everything wish to keep their hard-won treasures. A Dottling Luxury Safe or Collector’s Room ensures they do while looking simply exquisite in the process. Case in point: Dottling Colosimo “Watch Safe” Double Wing. Inspired by the iconic 1954 Mercedes 300SL “Gull-Wing,” the mini-safe’s clock and toggle switches are respectful nods to Gull-Wing. Its sumptuous lines harken directly back to the impeccable styling of that legendary automobile. Colosimo Double Wing is the ideal manifestation of the Dottling ethos. Were James Bond himself to hand-select a safe to secure his valuables, it would surely be none other than that of the century-old Magstadt, Germany bespoke company whose pledge of beauty and craftsmanship in the safe making is uncompromised.

El Greco...and the Whispering Spirits of the...

annerist movement which inspired his new interpretation of reality, or the primacy given to color rather than the traditional standard of form? Perhaps El Greco himself made it clear when he famously stated that “I paint because the spirits whisper madly inside my head.” These spirits would lead El Greco on an artistic journey as bold as his brushwork, a journey that would ultimately inspire future painters and writers alike and win him worldwide fame. In his lifetime, his success was limited and transient, the world at large not quite ready for the vision that informed his work.

Titanic Survey Expedition ...View the Legend Two Miles...

he timepiece and the man who wore it was submerged in the icy water of the North Atlantic Ocean, beyond hope or help. These are, but a few of the artifacts discovered amongst the eerie remains of the Titanic. It may be less than a league under the sea, but the most legendary shipwreck in modern times was still too deeply hidden for the layman observer until now, when deep pockets will allow for the viewing of the legend, two miles down, from inside a manned submersible. Over a century since an iceberg famously sunk the unsinkable, the Titanic Survey Expedition seeks to document that which remains.

Mata Hari... the Legendary Courtesan Who's Deadly...

twice. A woman of exotic beauty in command of her impulses, with a charming wit and keen intelligence, she would turn her misfortunes to her advantage, using her every talent to survive in a world that gave her little and, in the end, took her all, including her life. At one time, a free spirit deemed ahead of her times, the young divorcee who danced for her supper and became the most celebrated courtesan of her day, would ultimately be caught in the web of extraordinary times that labeled her a double-agent while condemning her for the very exploits for which she had once been revered and celebrated.

Tom Ford... Influencing Contemporary Culture...

ly pleasing appearances, and drives toward artistic perfection. A man who prefers a monochromatic look, Ford grew up fascinated by design and spent part of his youth rearranging the family’s furniture. His real estate agent parents encouraged him to pursue his passions, so he studied at NYU, acted in commercials, and enrolled in architecture at Parsons School of Design. Ford shifted his interest to fashion after interning at Chloe in Paris and sketched at Cathy Hardwick despite having little fashion knowledge.

Elon Musk, SpaceX...and the First Manned...

focused on their first mission to Mars, but the consequences of success could be far more profound and far-reaching than simply interplanetary travel. But then, Elon Musk, the CEO and product architect of Tesla, has never been one to think small. If anything, he feels most space programs have not been ambitious enough, a condition that cannot be said to apply to his SpaceX program. Beyond the moon, beyond space travel, Musk seeks to revolutionize space technology and secure the future of humanity by colonizing Mars. Since 2002, his company SpaceX has worked towards this dream, developing spacecraft that have shattered the glass ceiling on space exploration.

RMI Expeditions...Will Guide You to the Iconic Summit of Mount Everest

e Royal Geographical Society in 1865, Everest has thrilled, tested, and thwarted climbers ever since. Along the way, it has sparked mystery and debate, as when George Mallory and Andrew Irvine launched a gallant summit charge on the morning of June 8, 1924. Last observed near the mountain’s zenith, the two would later vanish into a cloud bank. No trace would be seen of either for more than three-quarters of a century until the 1999 discovery of Mallory’s remains on the North Face. In the 65 years since Hillary and Norgay became the first to the summit and returned to tell the tale, Everest has lost none of its tempting luster.
