Who better than Mr. Stefan Boublil, the creative director of the apartment, to kick off our collection of Gift Ideas for 2012? Our thanks to Stefan, as we know he’s busy running the business and the apartment broadcast, as well as generally providing better design for branding, marketing, and interior design worlds. Well done, sir, you deserve everything on your list.
Stefan’s note to Santa:
i hope you are doing well and kept your cholesterol levels under control. by the way, thank you for all the presents last year, i especially enjoyed the herpes. which is why i have been pretty nice this year, well, apart from that thing with that guy that time, but otherwise pretty nice. these are the presents i would love to receive this year by the artisan beer and quinoa chips i will leave by the ceramic heater.

yes, books are on their way out but sometimes, still, you need a different format to accurately express an idea. this is that idea.
thank you for the a.d.d. you gave me 42 years ago. and thank you to the good people at Small Planet Digital for making it beautiful and easier to cope with.

purposefully for re-gifting to the woman in my life, these platforms (or any other in her sumptuous collection) will be the perfect complement to the nothing else i will encourage her to wear this christmas.
