A love for building brands has seen London-born Taymoor Atighetchi launch The Tab, a digital news platform, followed by the creation of Papier, a one of a kind fine stationery brand. Though you could say that he’s got his entrepreneurial hands constantly full, Taymoor’s ideal weekends include indulging in a good balance of food, art and time spent with friends.
Your chill pill
Genmaicha tea – I live by it.
The ultimate weekend
A good weekend should have food, art and friends in equal measure: Lunch at Maltby Street Market, afternoon at White Cube Bermondsey and evening cooking for friends. Sundays (in the winter) should be spent with a dog, newspaper and a fire.
Your favorite place in the world
Florence – the birthplace of Renaissance art and architecture. You can still feel the spiritual and cultural importance of the city as you wonder through its narrow streets.
Pick your poisons
Drink: Aperol Spritz – they take me back to Italy every time and you can’t help but love the neon color.
Food: Mum’s Persian saffron chicken – it’s her own secret recipe. Anyone who has ever tried it will understand. She’s been offered investment on numerous occasions to open a restaurant that ONLY serves it.
Song: I Feel It Coming by The Weekend and Daft Punk
Show: Fawlty Towers. I must have watched each episode over 30 times and it still cracks me up.
The most recent thing you added and / or checked off your bucket list
Checked Off: Travelling through Rajasthan, India. One of the most beautiful parts of the world.
Face your fears
Piano recital aged 13, performing in front of 50 parents at school. Nightmare – still haunts me. I’ve never performed publicly since.
#TBT to the first memory that comes to mind when you think of a crazy weekend
The McDonald‘s breakfast menu… most disappointing sight ever.
One person you wish would follow you on social media
David Beckham – such a legend.
Here for a good time, not for a long time – What’s your guilty pleasure?
Shisha – some people say it’s as bas as smoking but it’s a once a month thing.
