In its third year as a global Associate Partner of Art Basel, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Audemars Piguet presented their innovative stand in the Collectors’ Lounge at Art Basel in Hong Kong 2015. Inspired by Audemars Piguet’s home the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland, the stand entitled ‘MINERAL LAB’, created by leading French designer Matieu Lehanneur will appear in an altered form, as its design concept shifts seasons from winter to spring.
The evolved 2015 edition of the Hong Kong venue included an eco-living wall, as well as a newly-commissioned sound work by French artist Alexandre Joly.
To coincide with the Art Basel in Hong Kong, Audemars Piguet announced renowned curator and artist, Ruijun Shen as the second guest curator for their innovative art commissioning project, the Audemars Piguet Art Commission. Shen will work with a selected artist to be announced in early 2016 to create a new work later that year.
