Coming in 2015

Inspiresto Brussels & Antwerp
Northern lights and designs galore, here are 2 destinations to discover or rediscover. The Belgian institute has given rise to some of the most superb franchises from Pain Quotidien to Exki. An expedition to the source of this creativity involving 2 cities that are each a melting pot of all European influences, enhanced by an irresistible design sense.

Inspiresto Copenhagen & Stockholm
In terms of gastronomy, winter is right here (enthusiasts get it). Since 2003, the year of the launch of Noma in Copenhagen and the publication of the Scandinavian cuisine manifesto, the great northern wind has been blowing across kitchens. The pinnacle of local products, authenticity, simplicity and natural presentations, emergence of smoked, acidic and even burnt flavours… the Scandinavian influence has arrived! To understand its richness and capitalize on opportunities, Inspiresto takes you for a walk in the alleys of the Danish Vesterbro, one of the trendiest places on the planet, to high-end Swedish Ostermalm, to unearth concepts and ideas that certainly hold promise.

Trend safaris
