Check Out: Reiko Kaneko tableware at Symphony



It might seem like an unlikely marriage but the ceramicist Reiko Kaneko successfully blends Japanese and British influences to create fine bone china tableware and home accessories. Tea sets by the young designer are now exclusively available at Dubai Mall's luxury multi-brand boutique, Symphony.

A graduate of London's Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Reiko established her studio in the UK capital in 2007. Born in Britain but raised in Japan, she has developed a unique style that combines the best of both cultures. Her ceramics are made in the UK's Stoke-on-Trent, the home of bone china, and combine centuries-old production techniques with contemporary designs.

We love the Lip Tease, a tea cup, mug and saucer set that turns lipstick marks into a decorative feature. Available in gold or platinum, the lip print is suitably subtle but still stands out against the milky white of the bone china. The collection's gentle humour is characteristic of Reiko's creations and is a delightful way of dealing with a very traditional material. The simplicity of Reiko's designs ensures that the charm of the bone china is not lost, merely enhanced.

Managing the separation process

  • Choose your nursery carefully in the first place
  • Relax – and hopefully your child will follow suit
  • Inform the staff in advance of your child’s likes and dislikes.
  • If you need some extra time to talk to the teachers, make an appointment a few days in advance, rather than attempting to chat on your child’s first day
  • The longer you stay, the more upset your child will become. As difficult as it is, walk away. Say a proper goodbye and reassure your child that you will be back
  • Be patient. Your child might love it one day and hate it the next
  • Stick at it. Don’t give up after the first day or week. It takes time for children to settle into a new routine.And, finally, don’t feel guilty.

The Energy Research Centre

Founded 50 years ago as a nuclear research institute, scientists at the centre believed nuclear would be the “solution for everything”.
Although they still do, they discovered in 1955 that the Netherlands had a lot of natural gas. “We still had the idea that, by 2000, it would all be nuclear,” said Harm Jeeninga, director of business and programme development at the centre.
"In the 1990s, we found out about global warming so we focused on energy savings and tackling the greenhouse gas effect.”
The energy centre’s research focuses on biomass, energy efficiency, the environment, wind and solar, as well as energy engineering and socio-economic research.
