    Audemars Piguet Showcases New Living Room At Art Basel Hong Kong 2015

    Audemars Piguet showcases the newly created living room of the Art Basel Hong Kong 2015, including new custom installations designed by French artist ALEXANDRE JOLY. At the same time, Audemars Piguet is pleased to announce that it will restart the innovation booth in the collectors’ living room of Art Basel Hong Kong 2015. The booth is called ‘MINERAL LAB’. It draws inspiration from VALLÉE DE JOUX in the Swiss Jura Mountains, home of Audemars Piguet, and is designed and produced by the famous French designer MATHIEU LEHANNEUR.
       As its design philosophy changes from winter to spring, the presentation form of the booth will change accordingly. The updated 2015 version of the booth will also feature an ecological living wall, a new custom sound installation designed by French artist Alexandre Joly, and will also showcase the extraordinary female traditional timepieces launched by Audemars Piguet from 1900 to 2015.
       In 2015, the Audemars Piguet living room brought a new breath to Mathieu Lehanneur’s imaginative design. The first display of this design was at the Art Basel Hong Kong last year. Its design will draw inspiration from the fields of science, nature and technology. Lehanneur added an ecological living wall surrounding the living room, which was stably covered with moss. Lehanneur uses the wisdom and heritage of Audemars Piguet to express the transition and change of the four seasons in nature. In order to complement the new design of the Audemars Piguet booth at Mathieu Lehanneur, we commissioned French artist Alexandre Joly, based in Switzerland, to customize a new sound art work for Art Basel 2015.
       Joly’s work is mainly a combination of vision and sound, often creating installations that are closely related to a specific place, and explores the relationship that humans can grasp with nature, technology, and the environment in terms of perception, imagination, aesthetics, and ethics. In his work, Joly mixes sounds recorded in natural things (including weather, landscapes, insects and frogs) and fuses them with electronic sounds and frequencies, highlighting the sound characteristics of these materials and independent entities, Visual scenes accompanied by these sounds are also presented. Alexandre Joly records natural sounds around Surabus and Audemars Piguet manufacturing and museums. Joly will create a customized Audemars Piguet voice and play it along the Audemars Piguet booth’s ecological living wall at Art Basel 2015, vividly explaining Mathieu Lehanneur’s design concept.
       Audemars Piguet will showcase historical and contemporary women’s timepieces as a core exhibit at Art Basel 2015. These beautiful timepieces are beautiful and elegant, and the year of manufacture spans from 1900 to 2015. Since the brand’s inception in 1875, Audemars Piguet has been making beautiful women’s timepieces. Making women’s timepieces challenges all technical and aesthetic traditions. From a technical point of view, in order to meet the trend of increasingly compact and simple women’s timepieces,
       The watchmaker must make the movement as small as possible. This exhibition will show from an artistic perspective, how to rely on the ingenuity of various artisans, including enamelers, metallurgists and jewellers, to make exquisite case decoration and devices capable of containing these delicate mechanical elements. The fine diamond and sapphire bracelet watch made in 1916 fully demonstrates this ingenuity, and this watch will be displayed at the Audemars Piguet booth. For decades, Audemars Piguet has been a pioneering brand in the art and design of women’s timepieces. Many of the world’s first miniature timepiece mechanisms are produced by Audemars Piguet. The women’s small pendant watch produced in the 1880s is the love of time. One of the miniature timepiece mechanical devices produced by him.
       Mathieu Lehanneur is a famous French designer at the forefront of the international design scene. He combines design, science, technology and even poetic communication elements in a very innovative way. His humanized design can serve the best of humanity.
       He graduated from the French National Institute of Advanced Industrial Design (ENSCI), and his works have been awarded by the Museum of Modern Art in New York (New York, USA), Pompidou Center for Contemporary Art (Paris, France), Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco (San Francisco, USA), and the Ile-de-France Foundation for Contemporary Art Permanent collections of important art institutions such as the Society (Paris, France) and the Design Museum (Ghent, Belgium).
       Mathieu Lehanneur has designed for Triumph Champagne, Issey Miyake, Quentin, Cartier, Burchuna Flo, etc., and has also completed a number of amazing projects, such as the Church of Saint-Silaire (Meyr, France), Di Arconas Hospital (Paris, France) and Paris’s most popular landmark place ‘Electric’.
       Alexandre Joly was born in France in 1977 and currently lives and works in Geneva. Alexandre’s work is closely related to sound creation. Whether it’s around installing equipment or performing, Alexandre always explores the possible interactions between materials, objects, and sound. Over the years, Alexandre Joly has used miniature speakers called ‘piezos’ in many works. He shows sounds recorded in natural things (weather, landscapes, insects, frogs, etc.) and mixes them with electronic sounds and frequencies.

    About Chanel J12, Lan Siqing And Cousin F Have Something To Say

    If you have to have a watch in a woman’s cabinet, Chanel J12 may be the first choice for many people. why? Not only is it classic, but the brand also challenges tradition and subverts itself on the basis of classics. Constant innovation is also its success. J12 has become a ‘symbol’, which represents the pinnacle of ceramic watches; it has an avant-garde design style of ‘black or white’. What kind of charm does the “J12” watch have? We invite two women Lan Siqing and cousin F who are very authoritative in the watch industry and have a strong attitude towards fashion to see what they say.

    Picture from Cousin F

    Chanel J12 series watches have been born for 18 years. Why do you still choose J12 watches today as there are endless new models and constantly changing?

    Lan Siqing (watch and jewellery critic and public account ‘Lola Capital’, Lan Siqing): The name ‘J12’ has revealed the ambition of Jacques Helleu (design director of Chanel in 2000) in this watch Under the highest and most stringent specifications, we have created watches with both technology and aesthetics and functions.
    Cousin F (famous luxury influencer Li Fei, Cousin F): Comfortable to wear, this is the unique advantage of ceramic watches, skin-friendly and moist like jade is not just talking, in the actual wearing process, make the wrist comfortable and natural Burden is also one of the very important principles of table selection.

    Picture from Lan Siqing

    In private, you all wear Chanel J12 watches. What is the most special thing about J12?

    Lan Siqing: Before the advent of J12, it was almost impossible for high-tech precision ceramics to enter the field of boutiques, let alone J12 raised the definition of high-tech precision ceramic watches to high-end luxury status. This is its most successful point.
    Cousin F: Chanel premiere, classic, but square watch; Boy · Friend, simple yet elegant, but square watch; Code Coco, stylish and stylish, or square watch. I am a huge fan of square watches myself, but from a design point of view, the circle is indeed more traditional and low-key and suitable for the wrists of a wider range of people. This is why even if there is a focus series every year, J12 will appear in the Basel showroom at the same time with new products.

    At this year’s Baselworld, Chanel’s new J12 Untitled watch is unique

    When it comes to materials, a large part of the reason people are familiar with the J12 series watches is because of the special material used in watchmaking-high-tech precision ceramics. What do you think the use of this material represents for J12?

    Lan Siqing: Differentiate from other brands and form an independent style belonging to Chanel. Black as the first color choice for J12 watches is not only an important mark color of the Chanel brand, but also because of the optimization of black high-tech ceramic production technology, so that Chanel can bring black J12 watches to the market. White is also Chanel’s signature ‘color’. It is said that it was because of the white required by the design director Jacques Helleu at the time. When the black J12 watch was launched, because the technology could not meet its strict white requirements, the white J12 was marketed at night. I don’t know if this statement is true, but if you compare the texture of the J12 white ceramic watch carefully, you will find that the high-tech ceramic material used in the white J12 watch: rich and fat as white as jade, is indeed the best of all white ceramics. Excellent.
    Cousin F: High-tech precision ceramics are not the first to use Chanel for watchmaking, but it is certain that it is Chanel that has allowed ceramics to flourish in the field of watchmaking. To this day, everyone still thinks of ways to improve ceramics in making The use and proportion of watch fields to maximize the characteristics of this material.

    In addition to the special nature of the material, what is the most attractive aspect of J12 in your design?

    Chanel J12 GMT Dual Time Watch
    Picture from Lan Siqing

    Lan Siqing: Breakthrough. From various aspects of technology, design, wearability, and functionality, J12 has a variety of looks. Mademoiselle launched a cartoon-like Chanel lady placed in the center of the faceplate, with both hands as hands to indicate time, just like Chanel Dancing to time, humor is a rare style of J12, but it is also Mademoiselle. It is the most attractive design in the J12 series.
    Cousin F: Today when I look back, I think that it is not only the line design that is as elegant and official as the official claim, it is actually the cramped, boy-like neutral temperament that causes unisex wear.

    As mentioned earlier, the J12 series is not only a single style. In fact, Chanel has also made a lot of attempts and breakthroughs in terms of technology and functions. Can you talk to us about any crafts that surprised or even surprised you?

    Chanel floating tourbillon movement
    Lan Siqing: The technology is reflected in the constant pursuit of tourbillon technology, which can represent the most intuitive and beautiful device of high-level watchmaking: the tourbillon. Chanel has been launched in the J12 series as early as 2005. At that time, the first Chanel J12 tourbillon watch was a traditional fixed-bridge tourbillon, which was made by the famous Swiss advanced movement factory Le
    Joux-Perret for Chanel. In cooperation with APRP in 2008, the J12 tourbillon watch began to be equipped with a floating tourbillon device made by APRP. The floating tourbillon does not have a traditional fixed bridge. Therefore, Chanel can use the brand feature mark to design its tourbillon device. To better match the taste of Chanel.
    Cousin F: In the intervening year of the birth of black and white J12, the observatory-certified black and white chronograph was also invented. I am a bit vague about these two memory points because during those years, Chanel went back and forth There are many complicated functions superimposed on the basic model of J12 black and white: tourbillon, moon phase, two places … Among them, I like J12 when the two places are clear and not overwhelming, with Chanel-style aesthetics.

    What does J12 show you?

     Lan Siqing: After nearly 20 years, J12 series watches have gone from classics to diversified styles. It is not easy to challenge the tradition. It is even more difficult to subvert the self-established classics. Just like Ms. Chanel on the road of creation, she always Continually proposing change, proposing creation and renewal, so much is said, but in fact the same thing is said: the classics are not staying in place, not immutable, but they have obtained immutable truth in the ever-changing.
    Cousin F: For ordinary people, J12 is just a piece of watch, like a tweed jacket, two-tone shoes, 2.55, and a little black dress, a Chanel-style invention. But beyond the present time, more importantly, it reveals a certain style, which is the deep skill that few brands can do.

    Finally, are there any tips on sharing watches for everyday use?


    Picture from Cousin F
    Lan Siqing: Take 12 · XS as an example. The design of the Chanel J12 watch subverts the tradition of fine watchmaking and has a unique way of self-interpretation in complex functions. The emergence of 12 · XS shows that the J12 is worn more closely to the thought of clothing. The smaller diameter XS can be worn in combination with leather gloves, bracelets, etc., making the style of J12 more complicity with fashion.
    Cousin F: I hope that in the process of selecting watches, you will return to rationality, control, and small size, and not to be led by the so-called ‘Oversize’ wind.

    Summary: Variety, classics, breakthroughs … We can’t simply sum up the pleasant surprise of Chanel J12 in a few words and sentences. When you really have it, actually feel its touch and the radiant light it emits under the light, you will understand this sentence: With Chanel J12, you have more possibilities.

       The 18K rose gold and platinum models are limited to 18 pieces each. The ‘Drilling Well’ single-question timepiece presents an attractive force. The dial pattern is vivid and attractive, and the details depicted are very accurate, as if you are in it and completely surrounded by the scene.
       The watch itself is more realistic in its workmanship. The oil pump arm that drills the oil well is a movable device. It will move up and down with the sound of the time signal. When the hammer hits the string, the drilling well will move in synchronization. Although the watch is a very complicated device, the operation of the ‘Drilling Well’ single-question stopwatch is simple. Simply press the on / off button lightly, the self-buzzer can be started or stopped according to your preference. When the hour hand points to the hourglass on the left, the self-timer function will stop. Conversely, if the pointer points to a small dot, the self-timer will start. Athens Watch is one of the early renaissances of the manufacturer of the watch technology, and is still the world’s few watchmaking brands that use active figures on the dial to make the watch.
       The watch uses the same master enamel technology that is unique to Athenian watches, an art that is highly valued by watchmakers and collectors. In addition, when Athens Watch produced ‘Drilling Oil Well’, it also added extremely difficult hand-carving skills.
       First, the sculpting expert will make the shape of a gold medal by hand, determine the thickness of each part and carve out a lifelike pattern. The enamel craftsman then fills the surface with black enamel. This method is to sculpt some grooves on the thick metal surface, fill it with moist enamel solution, and then bake it at high temperature until the enamel is melted. After the enamel surface cools down, remove excess enamel with a human hand and polish it to make the surface shine. After that, the gold medal will be returned to the carving expert for final modification. After these multiple and complicated processes, drilling wells, pipelines, buildings and landscapes came to life.
       Athens Watch ‘Drilling Well’ single-minded timepiece represents the ultimate craftsmanship of top-level watchmaking, combining ancient tradition and the most advanced watchmaking technology to create a watch that pays tribute to the business world stage.
