Supernature finds a new home in Como Dempsey
Step into Supernature’s new home and you’ll find a calming space tucked away amongst lush greenery and awash with natural light. Since its opening in 2001, the brand has long established itself as a leader and pioneer in Singapore’s organic and natural products retail landscape. Now, its new abode marks a fresh beginning, unfolding as a full lifestyle destination that offers a seamless retail and dining experience alongside regular workshops to change the way we eat, dine and live. Organic products make up 70 percent of the items that line the shelves here, with the remainder being natural products for special dietary requirements. A certified nutritionist and naturopath not only helps to curate supplements and share expertise with the team, but is also available on-site three days a week to guide customers with wellness advice.
Beyond the aisles of the retail section, in-house cafe Glow beckons. Start with the Mezze Platter, featuring three delectable dips of choice alongside fresh crudite and gluten- and grain-free crackers. The salads here are also outstanding, from the Tuna Salad with peppers, olives and spicy chermoula dressing, to the Broccoli Salad with green grapes, kale and organic barley. For something more substantial, the succulent Crispy Porchetta is roasted to crisp, golden-brown perfection—served with sautéed pears, fennel and onions to balance out the heavier flavours on the plate. Beyond being truly delicious, each item on the menu has been carefully prepared in a way that is wholesome and nutritious—embracing the idea that wellness begins from within, in the nourishment of our bodies.

The Apple Watch Series 9 is more intuitive than ever
With every new iteration of the Apple Watch comes novel innovation to enhance its wearer’s lifestyle. This year is no exception. The latest Apple Watch is smarter and built with a more powerful watch chip, the S9 SiP, alongside a revolutionary update featuring a new double tap gesture that allows you to simply tap your index and thumb twice to activate primary functions on your Series 9. This includes picking up calls, playing or pausing music or stopping a timer. Enabled by the lightning fast Neural Engine and a new complex algorithm—which detects tiny wrist movements and changes in blood flow—actions on your watch can now be a single-handed effort.
From faster processing to a longer battery life of 18 hours on a single charge, there’s no doubt that the Series 9 is more formidable than ever before. This iteration also goes a step further with Apple’s sustainability efforts, with select case and band combinations being some of the tech giant’s first carbon-neutral products. New textures and fabrics are explored—like a Finewoven band, a durable microtwill with a suede-like feel, made out of 68% of recycled content.

Dyson releases its first robot vacuum, the nifty 360 Vis Nav™
Robot vacuums are true lifesavers. Through the MyDyson™ app, you can send your vacuum moving while you are out for dinner, or even while you are on vacation. Its Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) technology maps out your house at first go, before it processes what it has seen and detects the various areas it needs to clean. The 360 Vis Nav™ also employs 26 sensors to perform specific tasks, including dust detection, obstacle avoidance and wall detection so it can clean right to the edge. This includes the piezo sensor, which detects what humans consider invisible dust particles, and automatically adjusts its suction power to get rid of it. Its brilliant fisheye lens and 360-degree vision system also gives the vacuum a comprehensive view of your home—ensuring even the most pedantic will be suitably impressed, as it never misses a spot.
What’s more, the 360 Vis Nav™ is fitted with a Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor, which allows for a capacity of up to 110,000 revolutions per minute—giving Dyson’s robot vacuum a strong sixfold advantage over its competitors. Its new triple-action brush bar is a noteworthy feature, as it combines three ways to deep clean with powerful suction. There’s the soft nylon for large debris pick-up, anti-static carbon fibre filaments for fine dust pick-up, and stiff nylon bristles for carpets. After a thorough vacuum of your home, one quick push of a button empties the bin and you’re all ready for your next clean.

The Whispering Angel Vintage 2022 arrives in Singapore

A pure rosé that proves remarkably easy to drink, it unfurls on the tongue in an elegant symphony characterised by a vibrant acidity that gives it compelling structure.

It is this intricate composition that gives way to a wine of such outstanding versatility—making it a distinguished dining companion that elevates every culinary experience.

Louis Poulsen launches the Pale Rose collection
With a new lamp collection, Louis Poulsen introduces a fresh dimension to the colour pink. Inspired by designer Poul Henningsen’s fascination with the interplay between colour and light, the collection takes beloved classics by Poul Henningsen and Vilhelm Lauritzen and gives them a subtle and elegant makeover. A beautiful new pale rose colour palette perfectly aligns the collection for modern interior trends, while still maintaining the designer lamp label’s striking designs. Take the PH 2/2 Question Mark Pale Rose Table Lamp, for instance, instantly recognisable with its unique curved stem. In this pink-hued reimagining, the addition of mouth-blown pale rose glass shades adds a romantic sophistication to the design—each piece a unique work of art.
