We all enjoy the hour lounge hosted by master Alex :-) What if this place really existed? The Vacheron & Constantin team in France, headed by Jean-Yves Di Martino, did just that yesterday for 2 hours in a hidden place on the left bank, aptly named the "Secret Gallery".
Check by yourself,
An entrance hidden in a secret yard on the left bank of Paris.
A very cosy interior dedicated to the Patrimony
A coupola that would make a very nice watch design
Then we could choose a print of our favorite model and selected words like: modernism, simplicity, hisory, balance...
Then one the artists present would realize a drawing over the watch print taking into account the worlds selected.
I selected Aurelia Jourist, who does very nice litographies, to customize my Patrimony print
A finally there was an interesting animation around the Patrimony theme in a dark room with two projectors beaming on a set of translucid screens. Extreme beauty of which the stills below only show a fraction
And of course there were exquisite food and drinks.
- Alex should get some funding to create this real hour lounge on a permanent basis
- If Vacheron & Constatntin shop were designed that way, the shopping experience would be way better :-)
Best regards to you all.
