I think this is the time of year when we really allow for that lull to properly set in; it doesn’t mean it needs to be all about the hammock, but it certainly demands a focus on the good life. And that’s exactly what this issue of Scan Magazine is all about.tumn diary is packed full of music festivals, book fairs, ‘hygge’ immersion and an oyster feast? For now, I hope you are busy soaking up the last bit of warmth, lake swims, fresh salads and mental space, and if you need reading material for that hammock, I know just the thing…Linnea Dunne, EditorInspired by our resident design editor Ingrid Opstad’s lush picks, we allowed ourselves to dream big and made the design section a big one this month: think atmospheric paintings, delicate ceramics, meaningful jewellery and more. And then we listened intently to the gourmands inside, because a worldclass whisky just complements a summer evening with a book on the porch so well – and planning the restaurant visits on that next trip to Finland works a treat for the comfort levels, too.SCANProducing the Danish travel theme and autumn guide to Sweden served as solace when the summer felt that bit too short – a reassurance of sorts, promising that the next season brings cosiness and comfort too, wherever in Scandinavia it takes you.

Perhaps you are a snorer yourself, or know someone who snores? Well, there is now help at hand. The pioneering Eezyflow sleep collar reduces snoring and also works as a travel collar – so you can get better sleep, and a better quality of life. By Malin Norman  |  Photos: EezyflowEezyflow sleep collar is a top-of-therange medical device for snorers, made of high-quality materials including pure polyurethane foam, known as memory foam, and is designed to reduce or eliminate snoring. Its founder, AnnChristine Krook, explains the idea behind the sleep collar: “I have lived with snorers since I was ten years old. 30 12 | Issue 127 | August 2019years of frustration and a great many sleepless nights helped me see a pattern,” she says. “The snoring stopped in a certain sleep position, on the side with the head slightly tilted back and the mouth closed.” Krook devoted herself to finding a solution and studied medical data, attended sleepcongresses and conferences, and met with a number of doctors and researchers in order to learn about snoring, its causes and risks. She discovered that the sleep position she was trying to attain could be compared to the so-called recovery position, in which an unconscious but breathing person can be placed as part of first aid treatment.Social snoring and sleep apnea Snoring can affect both men and women, and as recognised by Krook, snoring has been a global social problem for decades. The definition of social snoring is to snore without breathing pauses or with lessScan Magazine  |  Design  |  EezyflowAbout Eezyflow: • CE-marked medical device. • Manufactured in Sweden and   Denmark.  • Cast in specially made molding tool.  • Collar made of soft memory foam.  • Height adjustable.  • Fabrics, certified 100 per cent organic cotton.  • Weighs only 180 grammes.

It can have a negative effect on health, memory and mood, and disturb sex life, family relationships and working life. It might eventually lead to sleep apnea syndrome, which is classified as a disease that needs to be treated. The ground-breaking Eezyflow sleep collar has been tested by medical experts in cases of social snoring. It can also be used in combination with other anti-snoring measures, such as a snoring rail or nasal dilator, and works perfectly as a travel collar when travelling. The physiologically designed Eezyflow sleep collar is soft, relieves pressure, and is adjustable in height. The purpose is to free the airways by holding the head slightly tilted back, the jaw slightly advanced, and the mouth closed. While Eezyflow cannot provide relief for everyone, it can certainly help many people get a reduction or elimination in snoring and obtain a better night’s sleep – and thus, a better quality of life.What is snoring? Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures and the resulting sound due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. In some cases, the sound may be very soft, almost silent, but in most cases, it can be loud and unpleasant. Snoring during sleep may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Research shows that snoring is one of the factors of sleep deprivation. The severity of obstructive sleep apnea is classified as follows*: • Normal sleep (social snoring): less   than five events per hour of sleep. • Mild sleep apnea: five to 14 events   per hour of sleep. • Moderate sleep apnea: 15 to 29   events per hour of sleep. • Severe sleep apnea: 30 or more   events per hour of sleep. *Information from www.sleephealth.orgWeb: Facebook: Eezyflow Instagram: @eezyflowsovkrageIssue 127 | August 2019  |  13Tick, tock, boom — Swedish watches, designed by you Take an ancient invention, add full design customisation, and sprinkle with topclass customer service. What you get is a watch brand that makes your heart go boom. Scan Magazine spoke to Niklas Dahlgren, the man behind the brand that’s making watches unique and enjoyable again.different elements to create one holistic design, and it just didn’t make sense to me that the customer wouldn’t get to choose how to do it.”By Linnea Dunne  |  Photos: Elin StraatThe market wasn’t quite ready yet for Dahlgren’s industry-changing concept, but over the years, he fine-tuned the idea – creating prototype upon prototype until he had solved the challenges of insisting on a fully customisable watch,"I’m passionate about developing products from a consumer perspective. I'm not even really a watch fanatic – I just want to offer an amazing product that exceeds the customers' expectations," says Niklas Dahlgren, founder and CEO of BOOM Watches. And perhaps that’s exactly why he ended up starting the business he did: one that lets the customer choose – in a real way. He was based in London, working as a bartender, when he came across the watch manufacturer STORM and went on to become the exclusive distributor 14 | Issue 127 | August 2019of the brand’s products for the Nordic region. More than two decades later, he had built up an impressive CV with professional experience from not just STORM, but also brands such as SKAGEN, Camel Active and Gant Time. “It struck me when I was working with STORM that the whole industry was quite static,” Dahlgren reflects. “People would get a new watch every five, maybe seven years – it was quite dull. That’s actually when I had the original idea for BOOM Watches; I understood how the production worked, how we put togetherScan Magazine  |  Design  |  BOOM Watchesincluding not just the strap, but also the outer case, the bezel and the inner casing. And then, in 2017, the new brand was officially launched with a big boom, as it were.A brand of open minds The name, BOOM, stands for Brand of Open Minds, the founder explains. “We’re challenging the conventional watch, which can be quite boring and traditional,” he says. “Plus, in my opinion, to say that something is booming is very positive; it means it’s going in the right direction.” A BOOM watch comes with a standard two-year warranty, going up to three years if you register online – that’s unmatched by anyone in the fashion watch industry. Should any part turn out to be faulty, you’re guaranteed an instant instore replacement, which makes a lot of environmental sense: replacing parts as required, rather than replacing the whole watch. And sure enough, BOOM has a loyal base of customers who keep returning to buy new, additional parts for their watches. Ordering a BOOM watch is incredibly easy, as should be expected from a brand that puts the customer and usability first. But it’s enjoyable too; as you choose from the different colours and design elements, you watch your unique watch take shape on the screen in front of you in real time. There are no compromises, and it’s quick – as is the delivery,with your own, unique watch arriving in a neat box the following day. “You have to remember that we’re not a trend item,” stresses Dahlgren. “Trends peak and then disappear. We have a broad clientele with 14-year-olds as well as 75-year-olds buying our watches, and everyone can find a quality watch that suits their style. We’ve also got gift boxes that allow you to keep a kit at home to mix and match with, so you can match tan straps with your tan shoes, for instance.”Modern and modular It’s an interesting proposition, the customisable watch. You might think that watches would be a thing of the past, considering everyone has the time on their smartphone in their pocket. But while a whole new segment of smart watches and fitness gadgets is growing at an impressive speed, Dahlgren sees another development for the old timepiece. “Many people feel rushed all the time already – they don’t want more things trying to grab their attention. There’s something nice about being able to check the time without getting your phone out,” he says. BOOM Watches offers that possibility, along with the customisati
