A fun, practical light that really makes a statement.

Asterisco is a new lamp by Valencian design studio, Cuatro Cuatros for Lzf.  Its presence is so punctuating that the studio decided to call it Asterisk. Its clever integration with a lectern makes this lamp ideal for restaurants, hotels and hospitals just being next to the phone to take notes

Kalm …

A statement of clean and expressive lines, Kalm is Artifort’s large, new cosy armchair by French designer Patrick Norguet. It is a sanctuary in its own right, a place to unwind and get comfortable. With Kalm, Patrick Norguet has created an iconic, luxurious and comfortable high-back armchair for your living room or study.

Kalm is not only a beautiful chair that will earn a special place for itself in your home. According to Norguet, it is also ‘an expressive armchair that is suitable in any project environment. Several Kalm armchairs grouped together will definitely define a hotel lobby or meeting room and create a distinguished and iconic image.’

MMM | Mai Khoi

Monday Morning Music is back this Friday at The Newsagency.

You’ve heard of K Pop and J Pop but have you ever heard of Saigon Boom Boom?

The new music video single is by Mai Khoi, a Vietnamese musician who recently moved to Sydney to start a multi-racial band by the name of Fish Sauce.

Mai Kho hit the headlines last year when her controversial single Selfie Orgasm was removed from Zing MP3 after receiving close to 300,000 views in the first week. There were even calls for the video and song to be banned from her homeland – communist Vietnam – for the obscene lyrics and first-ever depiction of a naked woman in a music video.

Her new creation, Saigon Boom Boom is a throwback 80s synth-driven dance song inspired by the pomposity of Goldfrapp and the theatrics of Hotline Miami and classic Madonna.

Co-produced by Ken Lewis, known for his work with Eminem and Kanye West, the song is a musical mash-up of psychedelic themes as diverse as Grum and even Monster Mash.

Reflecting these diverse themes, a lo-fi music video boasts a sensory orgy of colours, effects and overlays, as Khoi sings and skips around New York City’s Lower East Side in between interludes of animation and visual effects.

“She’s got that 80’s Madonna swagger, self-secure woman, I know who I am vibe,” says Grammy Award recognised producer Mark Tarsia, who mastered the album.

MAI_KHOI

Mai Khoi is no stranger to controversy and as a Vietnamese celebrity is somewhat of an anomaly for having spoken out about LGBT rights, violence against women, and traditional gender stereotypes.

From a country that has made virtually no musical inroads outside of its own culture, Mai Khoi is charting a highly independent path.

See Mai Khoi this Friday night at The Newsagency – a solo acoustic performance

Remember you read about her first on the KE-ZU blog.
