SINGAPORE (May 22): Pure, clean air

Hospitals in Singapore caring for Covid-19 patients benefited from Sharp which has donated 80 units of its FP-J30 air purifiers with Plasmacluster Technology. Changi General Hospital, Ng Teng Fong Hospital and Singapore General Hospital received much-needed air purifiers that can cover an area of 23 sq m — the size of a patient ward or staff lounge. For two decades, these Sharp air purifiers have provided clean and pure indoor air to users. A joint study done by Sharp with Kitasako Institute in 2004 confirmed that there was a dramatic reduction in bacteria and viruses in the presence of Plasmacluster Technology Ions.

Game on

Make a game night of it at home and have fun with the family. Since we cannot go out to kick a football and neither are there any football matches being played, the next best thing you can do is get this Louis Vuitton’s Babyfoot foosball table. Choose from Monogram canvas, the darker Monogram Eclipse or the Damier Graphite that comes in a myriad of colours such as cyan, pistachio and fuchsia and a bi-coloured caramel and white version.

Treasures to behold

Omega is adding to the De Ville collection with Trésor, a collection for women who appreciate fine timepieces. The 36mm and 39mm models will fit any wrist and each has a stainless steel or 18K Moonshine gold case. On the dial, there is a domed 18K Moonshine gold with an embossed silk-like pattern, and white mother-of-pearl. On the steel models, all hands are rhodium-plated, while the gold editions feature diamond polished hands in matching 18K Moonshine gold or 18K Sedna gold. Each model has 38 single-cut diamonds following the curves of the case and an additional diamond on the crown, placed within the Omega flower in red liquid ceramic. Watch is powered by Omega’s Calibre 4061.

Graphic designs

Sports and heritage with innovation are design inspirations for Onitsuka Tiger’s latest collection: Lawnship 3.0, Lawnship PS, Lawnship TS, GSM and Tiger Corsair. The designs are inspired by the Bikini sous la Pluie collection. Bikini sous la Pluie is a brand run by surface pattern designer Caroline Bourlès. Her lively and playful graphic art attracts many people who follow her creations. For the History Graphic Pack series, Onitsuka Tiger adopts graphics consigned to her under the theme of Tokyo on the upper of this new line of shoes.

Eco-friendly zip bags

We need to make a change in this world of “use and dispose” and create things that are more environmentally friendly. Try the non-toxic Lexngo’s Silicone Flexi e-Zip bags that will replace single-use plastic storage bags. The Silicone Flexi e-Zip Bags (small) ($40) are a suitable alternative for storing or holding fresh produce like fruits, meat or vegetables. These bags are safe for the freezer as well as for microwaving. And with the pandemic happening, you can use the Silicone Reusable Fly Bag ($40) to store clean and unused masks or sanitisers.

Kindness prevails

No one is spared in this pandemic and instead of not doing anything, Novena Global Lifecare (NGL) has created a new business unit making Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) medical supplies for frontline workers. To date, more than 100 million units of medical essentials have been made and delivered all over the world. With the success of this, NGL has been appointed by the various government’s coronavirus task force to support with both sourcing and compliance management across a number of medical PPE supplies including invasive ventilators, PPE masks and Covid-19 test kits. Here is how you can help: Buy a box of masks and the founders will donate $1 for every box of masks sold worldwide to charity.

 

 

 

 

Anniversary special

It is hard to believe that the Casio Edifice is 20 years’ old this year. Like all great milestones, Casio celebrates it in a big way, with a launch of the ECB-10HR model with Honda Racing, a motor sport that is showcased all over the world. This, the third collaboration, features a sleek design that is swathed in black and red — the colours of the Honda F1 crew who supports the Scuderia AlphaTauri Formula One team. Dial is made of carbon with a number 20 on the bezel while the leather band rounds off a sporty look.
