Lightweight and breezy, Allbirds Tree Runners are made using FSC certified eucalyptus tree fiber that is breathable and environmentally friendly. Each pair delivers the signature comfort Allbirds is known for, making them perfect for your next adventure this summer. They go with just about anything you’re wearing, pack light, and stay comfy during every phase of your summer travel itinerary. The newest colorway – Whitecap – is inspired by natural colors at the beach, making them an excellent choice for your next getaway or the time spent dreaming of the sand while you’re stuck in the office.

Born in 1933 as an instrument for AUTOmobiles and AIRplanes, TAG Heuer has evolved their now iconic dashboard timer once again into the Autavia Isograph Watch. The timepiece nods to the 1960s model with a rounded case, beveled lugs, and an interchangeable brown calfskin strap while an oversized crown echoes to its in-flight heritage. Although its exterior is familiar, its innovative interior is built for the modern adventurer featuring a chronometer-certified Calibre 5 automatic movement with a carbon-composite hairspring, making it immune to gravity and shock. Its 42mm case comes with a polished ceramic bezel and a smoky blue, black, or grey dial.

  • Combining environmentally low-impact technology with high-impact design, the Salzburg Solar A-Frame House is an eco-friendly option in Salzburg. The holiday home was originally built in the 1970s. A black facade and timber screen entry gives the exterior a modern look but the biggest update isn’t that obvious. Solar modules mounted on the sloped roof supply not only enough energy to power the home, but can also charge an electric car. Within its minimalist white interior, insulation reduces heating and cooling needs while clay boards cool the inside in the summer and store heat in the winter. The spacious ground floor houses the main living area with sleeping lofts above. Just outside a wall of glazing, a wooden terrace overlooks the Chiemsee Alps.

  • Ace is branching out in the Big City with another New York hotel. Considered a spin-off, Sister City enlists Dieter Rams’ “less, but better” philosophy for a simplified stay in Manhattan’s Bowery neighborhood. Their guest rooms combine Finnish saunas, bento boxes, prehistoric cave dwellings, and the silence of John Cage’s 4’33” to create 200 simplified retreats, minimally adorned with custom Italian furniture, warm, neutral hardwoods, and soft Noguchi lanterns. This stripped-down approach aims to encourage guests to leave their rooms and explore the area’s museums, restaurants, and cafes. Also in the building are a ground floor restaurant and Last Light – a rooftop bar serving cocktails, local drafts, and unobstructed views of the city.
