Dutch world record holder goes for apples

Filed under: Food & Drink by Orangemaster @ 10:56 pm


Luuk Broos, the Guinness World Record holder for biggest champagne glass pyramid (50,116 glasses, watch him pour the champage) since July 2017, is going for his next challenge: the world record for piling up apples.

Together with residents of Vinkel, Noord-Brabant, Broos is going to attempt to pile up some 6000 apples in order to break a world record. Besides champagne glasses, Broos also broke a world record a few years ago for piling up 5500 oranges, a feat he called “the biggest success of my career”.

Dom Pérignon teams up with Dutch designer Iris van Herpen

Filed under: Fashion,Food & Drink by Orangemaster @ 9:50 am


Dom Pérignon has collaborated with Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen to produce a limited-edition champagne box and 3D-printed sculpture, as part of its Power of Creation project (not the bottles in the picture, the ones in the video)

Iris van Herpen’s gift packs were created specifically for the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004, drawing inspiration from concepts of metamorphosis and the length of time involved in making Dom Pérignon. Each box is signed by the designer and bears a sprawling, crystal-like green graphic set on a black backdrop.

There’s a video by German-born fashion photographer Daniel Sannwald to accompany the product, which I had to sign into to prove my age. The video also features some of Van Herpen’s creations and a nice dark green tone that just works for me.
