On Friday 13 March, Audemars Piguet celebrated the unveiling of its updated Collectors Lounge at Art Basel in Hong Kong, as well as the announcement of Ruijun Shen as the guest curator for the Audemars Piguet Art Commission in 2016. The pop-up space during the art fair was inspired by the Swiss watchmaker’s home in the Vallée de Joux. The stand entitled ‘MINERAL LAB’, created by leading French designer Mathieu Lehanneur appeared in an altered form, as its design concept shifted seasons from winter to spring.
The venue also included an eco-living wall, as well as a newly-commissioned sound installation by French artist Alexandre Joly and an exhibition of Audemars Piguet’s exceptional women’s heritage timepieces from 1900 – 2015.
The launch party of over 500 guests included Hong Kong celebrities Sandra Ng who showcased a white gold and diamond Millenary 5201 full-set timepiece and Louis Koo who wore a Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph.
