Contest: All you need is a camera
Just as going digital democratised the sometimes uppity world of photographers, so to has the introduction of HD features that have made movie-making increasingly accessible to anyone toying with a semi-decent camera. No more lugging around heavy and bulky equipment that costs an army and requires years of in depth studies to manoeuvre. Since adding-on […]
A few words about our iPad app
Our iPad app having hit Apple’s AppStore last week, we thought it useful to give you a little background information on it. You know, the why, who, what, when and all. We first started toying with the idea of developing an iPad app towards the end of the summer 2010. Apple had just released its […]
Those everyday little things
What better way to tackle our pick of items that tickle our fancy this month than by pigeonholing them into categories? Not just any categories. Categories we entertain somewhat of a love and hate relationship with. Love because they inspire our everyday. Hate because they make our everyday budgets smaller by the day. Photographer Melika […]
Let there be light
With our wardrobe summer lift nearly complete, there still are a couple of things we need to bag before setting sail for the month. Need a watch, a pair of sunglasses, shoes, a perfume, a pair of Chinos and sandals. Easy. Writers Nicholas Lewis, Philippe Pourhashemi and Randa Wazen 01. Scent of a summer We […]
Getting diggy with it: our QR codes
You might not have noticed it, but we took a step closer to the future in our last edition, the red album. Indeed, QR codes (those god-ugly barcodes you can see at the tail-end of some of the red album’s stories and features) were introduced to our pages, the sole purpose of which is to […]

Goods from the Gulag
Just when we thought we finally had found an excuse to call in caviar by the kilos and crates-full of vodka to brighten up our days, we settled for nostalgia over flamboyance. Frugal meals and geeky memories prevailed, which didn’t stop us from messing about with KGB worthy spy gear or Tsar-like ornaments. Photography Benoit […]
Tap that thang: we want to hear from you (in return for some booze)
Our iPad app comes out early January. Expect a more engaging and immersive editorial experience. Print, digital, video and sound – all-in-one. Its starting point will be the magazine (as with pretty much everything in Word world), its scope the neighbourhood (you know, Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Eindhoven, Maastricht, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Koln) and its reach […]
Take a mental cruise across Belgium’s modest territory; go for a quick imaginary spin along its motorways, through the bigger cities and down the country lanes. Notice any recurring features? While ‘medieval wonders’, ‘peaceful country- side’ and ‘millions of road signs’ are all valid answers, you couldn’t have possibly missed the ubiquitous construction sites, ongoing […]
Some like it rough
Unpolished, stiff, battered and worn-out, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this month’s showstopper selection was handpicked by a bunch of brutes. A far cry from the smooth and flashy must-haves spread all over the glossies’ gargantuan September issues, we lay our latest cravings bare and rough. Photography Benoît Banisse, art direction and styling facetofacedesign 1. […]

The Special Showstoppers: At the back of the bus
The nomadic lifestyle of the band on the summer festival circuit is both a blessing and a curse. While such movement adds exponentially to both industry cred and the rock ‘n’ roll allure, the effects on both sanity and hygiene can be much less desirable. Whether struck by stress, boredom, the sense of imprisonment, or […]
We made your world
Many of the objects that we overlook or take for granted have had an extraordinary role to play in human history. From concrete to the cathode ray tube: yesterday’s breakthrough discovery often becomes tomorrow’s trash. Photography Guy Van Laere Additional research Hettie Judah “For over one billion people in the developing world, glasses are a […]
Life at the cutting edge can get pretty exhausting – kept awake at night by genius ideas, burning through the shoe leather as you sprint your way too and from the patent office, wrestling frustration as things fail to fall into place just so – we thought we’d help out with a little selection of […]
