7:32 am
his ice is in hot demand all over the world. time is of the essence in this business, as we find out from thomas, who knows exactly how to break the ice for his customers. ah. busy busy busy this is thomas ooh de room. you could call him an ice cold norwegian business man. busy he sells frozen water to build ice. hotels were to carve wintery sculptures, and he has a special relationship with ice. that doesn't leave him cold. it's melt in the summer time it melt when it gets hot, it melt. if you bring it inside an as a business point of view, it's very good because if the customers is happy for what they got on want to have it again, that will have to buy over and over again because his melts and go back to the nature us walter, blue norway has vast landscapes,
7:33 am
clean water and harsh winters. so the raw material he needs is right at his doorstep. we are on the lake. yeah. very close to my eyes. farm. just one hour, east or slow. and in this area, it's normally not so much snow, but it's still normally cold, so it's gives clear and good ice quality. after nature has taken its course, he brings in the big gun. he saw the ice into even sized flocks. the ice can even bear the weight to heavy equipment using his tractor, he cuts long even tracks in the frozen lake. he must not lose any time, but the blocks of ice fries again quickly. the biggest challenge is to stay on the ice and not under dice, or i will say it's important to try to have 90 degrees angles every cut because
7:34 am
then it's easier when you use it later. we don't know if it going to be love big ice wall of stack, a big pile ice to make a big ice filter. ice sculptures and hotels may be relatively new. but ice harvesting dates back centuries. the industrial each lead to a boom in the sector, norway remain to top export her of ice right up to the 1960s. and companies and private households weren't the only ones buying. there. we had some high quality ice as well at that time, and that slightly bit to say market a. so we are selling to, for example, the high and cocktail bars are in london. they also both that sort of castilla royalties. they had it, and that it should be so clear that duke india read the newspaper true, a better big ice block. nowadays, the ice is transparency, is especially important. each block weighs around a ton. with the right quality
7:35 am
a block sells for about 700 euros. and it can be shipped worldwide if necessary. the blocks are used to carve intricate patterns or massive structures made of snow and ice, like this ice hotel in sweden. here, everything is made of ice from the reception to the bar in the rooms. and even the artworks are made of ice. one thing i may be never get used to it. that is so strong. it can carry a lot. oh wait. and i said, it's all so soft. he stories some 400 to 500 tons of ice on his ice farm in order could come in any time. sometimes his expertise is also called fort, he's already supplied ice to major hollywood film productions. it's a lot of different things that i and never had
7:36 am
a billeted to see if i hadn't been working with snow and ice. so that's the best part to it. but personally, i think i'm more happy when i am on the beach with 30 degrees, sa sunshine, burning out over my head instead o. stay in the shallows and minus 10 or minus 20 minus soda degrees. sounds like great vacation plants. as long as he doesn't have to put them on ice to take on more exciting jobs in the cold. busy for many soccer fans around the world, german professional player boss john shrine stagger needs. little introduction. as one of the top players in the game. he enjoy boyd, an illustrious career, with byron munich ken, to played for the german national team in 3 world cups. well shine steiger retired from soccer at the age of 35, but he is making headlines again, things to a new book which takes of close look at his life, both on and off the pitch. ah,
7:37 am
thus the insurance dagger is a german soccer legend. 2 years after entering his career, he's back in the limelight along with his wife, an advantage, and was author martinez. ethan martinez, you to has written a book about fancy and shine snag divorced the youngsters. miss nick, i'm very fond of busty who is coming and of course, you can't avoid developing a bit of a fatherly feeling towards some one when you're twice as age for my multiple sources. vaccine shine stagger, wanted his biography to be written, and a friend recommended author martine suitor. when the 2 met up, be instantly hit it off 10 minutes into the meeting. they already decided to work together from all 4 barons in one of her 1st meetings. busty
7:38 am
said above, i'd rather read a 1000 game scores than a single box is full. and you didn't like that last night on the country that i was thrilled because it made you all the more interesting as a character in a novel or not marine for it from martinez yoder insisted on writing more than just a biography. and so boston shine stagger, became the character of a biographical novel one that strictly sticks to the facts. his, me, reiney girl is no less novel. no, we're connie, but i can't make things up from scratch for the novel. a visa, the story telling style is what makes it novel ask the art the his at taylor is, does it all? mosquito martinez it lives and zurich is one of the most popular and successful contemporary swiss writers. he achieved fame at mostly through thrillers. his books typically mixed fiction realism and social criticism,
7:39 am
in which he explores the dark side of the financial world or genetic engineering. but for his new book, martin theater didn't have to come up with any of the stories. we think the thousands of feet long come under the light of the smell. i think the book is very believable. chanel for folk. tom, for those who have followed me closely, it's easier to identify which parts are 100 percent real and which as martin said, i've been slightly adapted to other or so from that perspective, i can totally see my life story in the book. so that was important. table of let me live on dog dust, little bit of horse, his wife anna yvonne of ich got to read the manuscript in advance, especially because of my thing, right? thing i think it's really touches something lived inside. then of course it was
7:40 am
a different reading from all this them around and them there were some things about him that they learned maybe from the book to but um yeah i my said was very emotional and i did have some theories in my id. former tennis world champion, and a van of ich has been together with bassetti inch fine staggered since 2014 martin luther also interviewed her for his book research and discovered a previously well kept secret that from oven garbage for october home. i was curious about the engagement found talk and asked, i wanna do tell me about the marriage proposal and faith, and she answered, well hm, i've never told anyone about it before. darcy, here it turned out to be such a romantic story that i was so happy that i was allowed to write it for their boss to. so i liked the busty. so romantic professor announced even as a little boy, he watched royal weddings with such great interest. her father really like how may
7:41 am
i say i could fall and ah, nasty and shy and stagger. is romantic. as you can see in the wedding photos from 2016 and as to how he convinced anna yvonne having to marry him, that's revealed in the new book. one of you most people would probably look at these items and see them either as flea market fines or even chunk that has to go. but the greek designer cost us lumbered us, might view them differently. most likely, i'm the potential them for a new chair or table. well, i'm british creates furniture collages from almost anything that he can get his hands on and the result is an eclectic mix of household items. we visited him at the studio in athens, where he lets his imagination run wild. this unusual
7:42 am
mix of materials and shapes is what characterizes the sculptural furniture by greek designer, hostile slum burritos. he turns whatever he finds into homogeneous artworks. blade try not to become specialist than some material, but the changing materials all the time and just visiting different families, let's say of, of materials are just to bring some new energy in. try some new things. experiments ah, make mistakes. the greek designer makes his elaborate creations in his workshop, in the greek capital, athens, a cheer. he is working on a fountain to have an idea in your head, and then you try materialize it. but then the material also has its own character and he told substance. and he done said his buck. and maybe sometimes you don't
7:43 am
like the answer. so you have to fight, or you have to collaborate. the most challenging thing is to put them together. how do you hold together a piece of ceramic with a piece of marble? how do you hold together a piece of stainless steel with a piece of glass? lambert, this is work. is attribute to periods such as the barrack style. for example, his elemental cabinet is a reference to a masterpiece of art history. the famous buttons and cabinets in 2004. the 18th century worth was auction for record price of around $30000000.00 euros, making it the most expensive item of furniture in the world. i was just trying to create this contradiction between a form that represents something very expensive, like the bud mental cabinet ah, but then may needs for materials that i collect that have no value

7:45 am
or some roof tiles. someone was renovating their house and they just throw them away. for, for me, they are gold broken, marbles sinks. this is one of my favorite materials to collect, and no one picks them up because they're super heavy except me. larry, this is represented by the renowned carpenters workshop gallery in paris. there is unique furniture collages are sold for 5 figure psalms. i understand the work as a, as a live organ. the is in the sense that a, you know, there is, there is an idea. there is a seeds that then we plans into the studio which is the ground. and then this think if we, if we love it and take care of it, and we will give it our energy in our time, then it starts. it's not, it's growing. castile embry, this is a designer and also somewhat of a full suffer. who enjoys international recognition
