HIGH-SYSTEM PU (POLYURETAN) FAUX LEATHER – Nisha Designs

Modern artificial leathers are coated with polyurethane (PU) instead of PVC, as PU is much more environmentally friendly in production, use and disposal.
Conventional PU, however, has the disadvantage that moisture and bacteria can penetrate through the openness of the pores and thus permanently damage the PU.
A new manufacturing process enables PU artificial leather to be produced with closed pores, so that there are no fractures in the surface – it is much more durable and hard-wearing.
Our artificial leathers SOLO, KANO, JAGO, ENA and ROMY have been produced with this special PU manufacturing process, called High System PU.
 

Our modern faux leathers are also particularly soft and insensitive to soiling. They are quick and easy to clean. With over 300,000 rubbing cycles, our faux leathers are durable and robust. Due to their permanent bi-elasticity, the materials can be easily upholstered according to all processes customary in the upholstery industry. 
The advantages of High System PU faux leather are:

  • free of phthalate
  • high and permanent elongation
  • particularly hard-wearing
  • easy care
  • insulating against cold
  • breathable
  • PU is recyclable

Faux Leather

Garry is a high-quality HSPU faux leather with a textile look. It conveys visual cosiness and comfort and at the same time offers the functional advantages of faux leather.

Romy has a beautifully grained, matt surface that can hardly be distinguished haptically from genuine leather. The leather look is supported by warm natural shades.

Ena is modern and bold with its smooth, metallic surface and strong accentuated colours. In addition to the classic metallic tones such as gold, copper and silver, strong tones such as orange and red stand out.

Jago has a natural leather apperance; its slight vintage look makes it extremely suitable for the furnishing of a modern hotel. It is ideal for headboards, bed surrounds and seating furniture of all kind. The authenticity of the faux leather is underlined by the colour range which concentrates on natural and grey tones.

Kano is a faux leather with a fine graphically embossed structure and a modern metallic sheen. The colour range comprises metal tones such as steel, titanium, silver and bronze as well as black and white.

Solo has a large colour palette with strong colours paired with natural leather tones. Solo is particularly beautiful in combination with upholstery fabrics from the DELIGARD series.

Art Words Around The World: Terms To Create And Craft In Other Tongues- Babbel- Nisha Designs

Art jargon is highly nuanced. It can be hard to decipher the meaning of so many words, especially if you’re a native English speaker and the words come from a language other than your mother tongue. Add to that the fact that a lot of people see the world of art appreciation as inaccessible, elitist or snobby, and it’s easy to see how learning art words, terms and expressions can be a formidable task.

But art is truly one of the world’s universal languages, so it shouldn’t be hard to talk about! With a little primer on important art words and movements, you can be ready to talk about sculptures and sketches, paintings and pictures, and everything in between! Here are 10 of some of the world’s most popular art words from other languages and what they mean.

Art Words And Expressions From Around The World

chiaroscuro — this Italian word literally means “light-dark” (from chiaro, “light,” and oscuro, “dark”), and it refers to the balance and contrast between light and shadow in a work of art to convey a sense of movement and volume. It was a favorite stylistic device of Baroque artists of the late 16th and early 17th centuries like Caravaggio, who often recreated religious narratives with dramatic energy and heightened emotional tension.

Renaissance — this French word translates to “rebirth” (naissance just means “birth”) and refers to the post-medieval period in Europe, concentrated in the Italian Peninsula, that placed an emphasis on humanism and the resurgence of classical Greek philosophy and ideals. Some of its most famous leaders included Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.

Bauhaus — founded in Weimar, Germany and operating from 1919 to 1933, Bauhaus was perhaps one of the most influential modernist art schools of the 20th century, shaping the development of artistic style in Europe and the United States in the interwar period and onwards. Fusing art and the industrial design of manufacturing, the artists of the Bauhaus school sought to bring a sort of social and artistic relevance into an otherwise soulless aspect of functional creation.

Dada — founded in Switzerland in the throes of World War I and continuing in its immediate aftermath, the Dada movement (or “Dadaism”) highlighted the chaos, horrors and disillusionment of war by focusing on scattered, unconventional and nonsensical elements that conveyed the artists’ disgust with the existing sociopolitical order and how it gave rise to such catastrophic human conflict. The name’s etymology is unclear. Some claim it’s just nonsense syllables chosen at random, others say it comes from the French word for a child’s hobbyhorse (dada) and still others think it comes from two of the Romanian artists’ way of saying “yes, yes” (da, da) in their language.

De Stijl — also known as “Neoplasticism,” de Stijl (literally “The Style”) was a Dutch art movement of the early 20th century led by artists Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. As a reaction to the highly decorative Art Deco movement and the horrors of World War I, de Stijl focused on basic geometric forms and solid, often primary colors meant to represent a more spiritualized, utopian view of art and the world, as well as to combine form and function effortlessly.

graffiti — this word has been adopted into English to refer to often informal (but sometimes very intentional), stylized street art typically spray-painted onto walls or other public surfaces. It comes from the plural of the Italian word graffito, which refers to a scribbling or scratch in a surface (and which is the diminutive form of the word graffio, “a scratch”). Since the 1970s, graffiti has become an integral part of urban and hip-hop culture, but it’s existed as a concept since at least the time of the ancient Romans.

Gutai — one of the most influential art movements of post-World War II Japan, this association of artists placed a heavy emphasis on individualism in response to the pre-war totalitarian regime. The Japanese word “gutai” translates to “concreteness,” and it focused on the physical connection between the human spirit and a whole range of materials. In response to the isolationism that had defined their nation’s position in the world, Gutai artists mastered cross-cultural networking, spreading their ideas across the globe.

memento mori — this term goes all the way back to get its name from the Latin of antiquity. This term, one of the most famous art words from Latin, translates to “remember you must die,” and it refers to motifs (in artwork, but also in life in general) that remind viewers of their own mortality and the ephemeral nature of life itself — items like skulls and hourglasses, for example.

Tropicália — this Brazilian art form emerged in the 1960s as a way to give contemporary art a Brazilian flair distinct from the heavily European cultural domination of the era. A movement that sought to shake up the status quo, it became a sort of rallying movement for the country’s progressives and rebels, and it touched all aspects of the artistic world, from visual arts to music to literature.

bodegón — the Spanish word for “still life,” this type of visual artwork — usually in painting form — gets its name from the Spanish word bodega, meaning “storeroom” or “tavern.” This genre of works — many of which were revolutionary in their time (around the early and mid-17th century) for their intense naturalism, displays compositions of inanimate objects — frequently depicts food and drink, jewelry, dishes, art supplies, flowers or other everyday items. The austerity of the bodegones is meant to convey a powerful moral message about the fleeting, sometimes tragic, nature of life.Practice the art of language learning.

You Can Vacation And Sleep In A Giant Wine Barrel AND Drink Wine All Day- Nisha Designs

img

Trying to attract tourists, restaurateurs build facilities where people can sleep in interesting forms. so, many winemakers have facilities that associate with grapes and wine. For example in Douro, Portugal in the facilities of Quinta da Pacheca sleep is organized in huge wine barrels.

Here, people who want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the cities can relax in these quaint and romantic barrels and savor their original wines.

The estate has existed for 280 years with a 140-acre vineyard. To be there and spend some time is a dream of every wine lover, and with great and original accommodation, this can be near perfection.

The giant wine barrels are designed to look like the actual wine barrels they use in the vineyards. The property owner Paulo Pereira and Maria do Céu Gonçalves designed and built them from pine.

Each apartment is 30 meters long and has a breathtaking view. It has a light window that makes the room feel much bigger than it is.

In this “wine room” tourists can use the shower, the bathroom, and the front deck. They don’t have to do anything but slow down and indulge in the beauty that surrounds them. The bed has a round shape that is rarely found in other tourist places and in real life.

KINDS OF WINE In QUINTA DA PACHECA

Their grapes grow along the river on steep hillsides. They produce beautiful reds, whites, rosé, and port wines.

KINDS OF FOOD

Excellent wine connoisseurs know that every wine tastes best when served with local food. In this tourist destination, visitors are also able to taste their wonderful wines with many local delicacies.

Also locally made jams and olive oil can be found here, which is a must-try. The property has a restaurant that offers all the services, so tourists do not have to go elsewhere.

THE DOURO WINE REGION

The valley of the Douro wine region is home to ports and enriched wines like Sherry. Mountainous terrains will delight anyone who learns about the region and are in itself a sufficient reason to put it on the list of next destinations.

This region is up to Barca de Alva, which is the oldest branched wine region in the world. It is characterized by a carved deep valley of the river, on the side of which, by the hand of man, mountain areas have been turned into soil and walls and planted with vines. The whole region is green in summer and blue in autumn.

The knowledge of grapes and wine is passed on from generation to generation. The landowners removed the terraces overtime to expose the vines to the sun and thus provide the necessary warmth for the grapes. This unique wine and landscape are created from the fruits of the earth and human labor.

 COST TO STAY AT QUINTA DA PACHECA

The price is similar to many other accommodations in the area, about $ 250 per night. As this is a great trip for most people, it is necessary to get tickets to Portugal, regulate everything regarding travel documents and head to that destination.

The best ice hotels, igloos and snow villages open in 2020- Lonely Planet- Nisha Designs

Cozy up in the coldest hotels in the world © Iglu Dorf / Massimo Cappuccio

In longitudes where long johns are all but compulsory and rugged alpine regions where the snow tumbles down sideways, creative grizzled folk brave the cold to cut and chisel and craft chunks of frozen water into sparkling ice hotels, uplit overnight igloos and snow-covered villages for mere non-mountain mortals to sleep over. 

Iglu Dorf – Gstaad, Switzerland 

Built using traditional igloo techniques, but with tunnels connecting each of the 11 rooms, it takes around 3000 hours to create the Iglu Dorf hotel in GstaadSwitzerland each winter. With breathtaking views out across the crucible of the vast Bernese Alps and its crown of fir trees, this slice of wonderful isolation can be enjoyed by up to six guests in a room overnight. 

With a sauna and swimming pool just outside as well as homemade mulled wine and a traditional hot cheese fondue, this is Switzerland in its purest mountain mode. Iglu Dorf also builds overnight igloos in Davos-Klosters, Stockhorn and Zermatt in Switzerland as well as on Zugspitze in Germany, and the Kühtai ski area in Austria.

Icehotel – Jukkasjärvi, Sweden

First built in 1989 in JukkasjärviSweden, this is the original Icehotel. It’s crafted annually from 2500 two-ton blocks of snice (snow and ice) plucked from the vast meandering Torne River. At the end of the season it simply melts and the water returns to the river. But whilst it’s up, its shimmering catenary arches and individually-designed rooms with snow statues and ice artwork make it a startling imaginative triumph. 

Located in northern lights territory, high up into the Arctic Circle, guests can also try husky sledding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. For the artistic, there’s ice sculpting as well. Can’t wait for winter? The Icehotel 365 offers 20 suites, an ice bar and an art gallery all year round. Plus it’s run entirely on renewable energy.

Arctic SnowHotel – Rovaniemi, Finland

Rovaniemi‘s Arctic SnowHotel is in Lapland, where Santa Claus kicks back for 364 days each year. Standing on the toes of the Arctic Circle, this part of Finland cycles through eight seasons, but it’s the sparkling magic of winter that’s most alluring: a calming white-scape of thick, crunchy snow; the swirling purples and greens of the northern lights; the excitable yap of huskies waiting to pull their sledges.

But hidden amongst these miles and miles of white wilderness is Arctic SnowHotel, a fully-functioning 30-room igloo that’s built afresh each winter using ice from the nearby Lake Lehtojärvi. The bedrooms are built of snow and ice, as is the bar, the restaurant and the chapel. Snow saunas and outdoor hot tubs also help make the most of this winter wonderland. 

Arctic SnowHotel is open December 15–March 31.

Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel – Alta, Norway

Sculpted deep beneath the magnetic gaze of the aurora borealis, the world’s northernmost ice hotel in AltaNorway, is also one of the biggest. Some 250 tons of ice and 7000cu meters of snow are used each year to freshly carve its 20 double rooms, three family rooms and five suites.

Located on the banks of the Alta River, a short snow sled from the Cathedral of the Northern Lights, the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel also has uplit ice sculptures, an ice bar and even its own ice chapel for couples hoping to melt hearts. The beds have reindeer leather as a natural sleeping mat and sleeping bags capable of withstanding temperatures of -22°F (-30°C), but the sauna (no, not located inside the ice hotel) opens at 7am each morning. Just in case.

Sorrisniva is open December 20–April 7.

SnowVillage – Kittilä, Finland

Created from 350 tons of crystal clear natural ice and 20,000 tons of snow, this extravagant SnowVillage in Kittilä, some 125 miles (200km) into the Arctic Circle, is crafted with the care and precision of a medieval church. Decorated with ornate ice sculptures that change year-on-year, each work is lit up in the swirling colors of the aurora borealis. 

As its name suggests, this isn’t just an ice hotel. There’s a restaurant made from glacier-clear ice, a chiseled ice bar that gleams like a diamond, and a beautiful ice chapel too. Each snow suite has been individually designed and brought to life and, yes, there are saunas nearby as well.

SnowVillage is open from December 21–April 4.

Schneedorf Igloo – Hochötz, Austria

The Ötztal in Tyrol is one of those striking Austrian gram-oramas: a sweeping valley of glittering chalets dwarfed by the brooding dark hulks of snow-covered schist and gneiss striding starward. But up here, nestled some 2670ft up the mountainside in the ski region of Hochötz, you’ll find Schneedorf Igloo. Beneath what looks like a fresh dump of plump white snow is actually a hotel with enough room for 44 people to survive a blizzard overnight.

The silence is rejuvenating at night as the temperatures drop and the constellations start to twinkle against winter’s blueberry-dark sky. Dinner is gooey cheese fondue and the on-site snow bar has enough potent liqueurs to keep guests warm until sunrise. Thankfully, the igloo toilets here are heated.

Schneedorf is open Wed–Sun from December 26–April 4.

Tomamu hotel.png
This is Japan’s only ice hotel © Ice Village Tomamu

Ice Village Tomamu – Hokkaidō, Japan

Japan’s only ice hotel is a shades-down dazzler. Surrounded by uplit birch trees, the exclusive genetically-domed igloo sleeps just two people a night on its stylish ice beds, with an outdoor arctic bath and a heated dressing room to keep their lucky bones warm.

Located at Tomamu in Hokkaidō, near the smooth wide runs of Tomamu ski area, the temperatures regularly tumble to -22°F (-30°C). That may sound like visitors are consciously choosing to be cryogenically frozen, but it also means that Ice Village Tomamu guests have access to an ice rink, an ice slide, an ice instrument room, an ice chapel, an ice bar, an ice sweetshop, an ice bakery and – you’ve guessed it – an atelier that only uses ice.

Ice Village Tomamu is open December 10–March 14.

There are real fires in the rooms at North America’s only ice hotel © Hotel de Glace

Hôtel de Glace – Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier, Canada

North America’s only ice hotel is in Saint-Gabriel-de-ValcartierCanada, and will be cutting back on the poutine this winter to present a slimmed and trimmed version of its typical regal self because of COVID-19. However, that doesn’t mean the ice chandeliers and hand-chiseled snow sculptures will come crashing down – if anything, this luxurious igloo, which comes complete with an ice chapel for weddings, becomes even more exclusive.

Hosted on the outskirts of Quebec City, master craftspeople detail the igloo’s fine frozen furniture, gleaming ice entranceways and curved snow roofs each year. With hot tubs and a sauna under the stars as well as real fires in each room, no guests should go to bed cold. There are even real mattresses and an isolating bed sheet to ensure a great night’s kip. Hôtel de Glace usually opens earlier than January 2, depending on the weather.

Hôtel de Glace is open January 2–March 21.

Snowhotel Kirkenes – Kirkenes, Norway

So far up the longitude meridian that there’s only really Svalbard in the way of Kirkenes and the North Pole, this wonderful Norwegian snow hotel is open 365 days a year. In the cold, blizzard-blanketed winters this is reindeer and husky country: a quiet, isolated region endured by only the most hardy of creatures. But for overnight guests, it’s a beautiful once-in-a-lifetime spot for a winter vacation.

Inside the plump hotel itself, artists bring each bedroom to life with snowy bas reliefs of local winter animals like wolves and owls, whilst specialist ice sculptures that line the halls and ice bar area turn frozen water into glacial artworks worthy of Frieze Art Fair.

Snowhotel is open year-round.

Being of service to ONENESS- Serving the greater good- Nishante- Nisha Designs

Years back I was leading a group of non- profit organization in San Diego. We had about 9-11 board members. We had an event that we all were preparing for and towards the end we had a little setback.

We were all discussing how to approach this situation. As one of our board member said let’s cancel the event completely. And he went a little too far enough and took the opportunity to make this event all about him and his ego. Diverting attention from the core situation which in my awareness wasn’t bad at all just needed a tweak but ok, here he goes off bringing fear to the situation, personal threats, making it all about men, women in authority, bringing doubt and question to the leadership and skill, threatening to stop the organization and what it stood for if he did not get his way, feeding information to people in the room and to people in the community that had nothing to do with what we were talking about? Ya talk about evil/ chaos in action. In short once things got quiet in the room. There was only one guy and myself on the same page. Rest were still choosing what to do.

So as a leader I chose to go ahead with the event as planned with some back up and tweaking whatever it took to keep it going. Because my focus and intent about my position and this organization and this event wasn’t about me, wasn’t about fear, wasn’t about the fame or recognition, wasn’t about what will people say, wasn’t about who is in authority, ego, power or to prove to anyone or anything, it wasn’t about me winning or loosing.

My focus was on the bigger picture serving the organization which I was responsible for as a leader. The intent I had created this event in the first place was to serve and raise money for a non profit to help in need.

I wasnt afraid at all. But one bad apple causing chaotic shit in my world of order that I could not fathom with because all his choice did was serve him not the greater good by his thoughts, action and words of intent.

So I made a statement as the leader to chose to continue with the event whether anyone was with me or not. And yes I did have that right to choose according to our organization by- laws. And they say truth, justice always prevails . Regardless of the havoc my DJ showed up, event was a hugeeee success in the history of this organizations chapter and we made enough to give the help we could.

It is our responsibility to choose leaders who are about serving the greater good and not making it all about themselves. To choose who stand for truth and not lie. Who stand for justice and not fraud and manipulation. Who are responsible in there choices, words and action.

We are here to serve. This planet is about serving in our own life and to our planet as ONE.
