Here at PIP Towers we’re rather taken with the notion that architect Feix & Merlin spend most of their time jet-setting between London and São Paolo attending elegant soirées and high profile dinner parties rather than doing any work. So it was raised eyebrows all round when we discovered that they’ve foregone the air miles to produce the new white Massa marble pendants. It turns out the Dorchester, Wentworth and Charlotte have Brazilian curves, hand-crafted Italian style and a very English sense of decorum. Prices are a little ‘Club Class’, but pay peanuts and you get monkeys, right? Oh, I need to catch a flight to Rio – Taxi!
