Is this real life? D&CO #Dynamos Discover Virtual Reality


Last week, Miami experienced an art takeover! Fairs, parties and museum exhibitions gave residents and visitors dozens of options to explore during Miami Art Week. However, the Durée & Company Dynamos had no problem choosing which show to attend because the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami’s newest exhibition challenged time itself!

MOCA hosted an artist reception to celebrate the opening of “How to Unlock a Portal” by Swedish artist Jacob Felländer on Wednesday, Dec. 6. Attendees included Miami tastemakers and art aficionados from around the world – all enjoying cocktails, canapes and live music.

The groundbreaking exhibition mark’s the artist’s US debut and represents Felländer’s creative journey over the past 15 years. “How to Unlock a Portal” leads the viewer into another dimension by traveling through a fusion of virtual reality, painting, photography, and sculpture. By capturing not one frozen moment in time, but several, Felländer challenges the definition of time, space, perspective, and depth. Put on the virtual reality goggles and the room disappears as you deeply enter the painting in all of its degrees.

If you missed the exhibition at Art Basel Miami Beach, “How to Unlock a Portal” is on display until February 11, 2018. Grab a pair of virtual reality goggles and get ready to jump into Jacob Felländer’s world! Take a sneak peek into virtual reality here.

D&Co Dynamos Celebrate the Opening of Coastal – Ft. Lauderdale Beach’s Newest Oceanfront Restaurant


Last week, Durée & Company celebrated the grand opening of Coastal, Atlantic Hotel & Spa’s new restaurant featuring Italian-inspired Mediterranean coastal cuisine and oceanfront views.

The grand opening took place on Wednesday, Nov. 29 and featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor Jack Seiler and Commissioner Chip LaMarca. Following the ribbon cutting, guests sampled several of the restaurant’s signature dishes and cocktails prepared by Executive Chef Rocco – such as the Swordfish Meatballs, Lobster Milanese, Cucumber Mint martini and Lime in the Coconut.

The opening celebration showcased Coastal as the perfect venue for a party with a semi-private dining room that seats up to 22 guests.

The #Dynamos enjoyed the oceanfront views so much that we’re hosting our holiday party there this week! We’ll be ordering off Coastal’s Sharing menu – an excellent option for large parties.

With its stylish dining venue and innovative menu, Coastal is a must-visit! And, the outdoor seating is the perfect way to enjoy the South Florida winter. So, head over to this beach-chic restaurant for an enjoyable meal and sophisticated dining experience. For more information, visit www.eatcoastal.com and follow @EatCoastalFl on Instagram.

iFLY Fort Lauderdale is now delivering the dream of flight to adventure seekers in South Florida. People of all ages and abilities can experience human flight in a safe, comfortable and fun environment – without having to jump out of an airplane. Each indoor skydiving facility is a marvel of engineering that replicates the sensation of freefall, creating conditions that allow people to fly on a smooth cushion of air. With the help of iFLY-certified flight instructors, customers learn to fly, control their bodies in the air and experience true human flight.

Since 1998, more than eight million customers worldwide have experienced human flight at iFLY in a variety of ways: as a fun excursion with family and friends, a student on an educational Science, Technology and Math (S.T.E.M.) field trip, a professional skydiver or member of the military for training, and as a corporate customer looking for a unique team building activity. Thanks to iFLY, flying is finally available to everyone.

To prepare for their flight experience, customers complete a training class guided by one of iFLY’s flight and safety instructors. They then are equipped with flight gear, including goggles, helmet and flight suit, and enter the flight chamber by leaning forward into a smooth cushion of air, with a flight instructor at their side.

All flight packages include training, flight gear, and flight time with an International Bodyflight Association (IBA) certified instructor. The IBA established the gold standard for training and safety standards for indoor skydiving instructors. All iFLY instructors meet or exceed IBA standards.
