Celebration of Cartier in Motion With Star Studded Party
The exhibition was opened by Cyrille Vigneron, President and CEO of Cartier International, and Sir Norman Foster, one of Britain’s most revered architects.
Cartier in Motion, which runs until 28 May 2017 at the London Design Museum, explores the creativity of Cartier and its design vision. Curated by Sir Norman Foster, this exhibition explores the creativity of Cartier and design. Cartier in Motion includes over 170 exhibits alongside rare insights into the research and work of the designers at Cartier through extracts from material found in the Cartier Archives.
Notable attendees to the opening party included stars from across the creative arts and businesses including Laurent Feniou, Martha Hunt, Jim Chapman, Roksanda Illincic, Caroline Issa, Kim Hersov and Sandra Choi.
Whilst telling the story of Cartier watchmaking and the invention of the modern wristwatch, Cartier in Motion explores the change in society at the turn of the 20th century. Amidst upheavals in art, architecture, travel and lifestyles, the traces of a new world could be seen and this is illustrated through each of the main themes of the exhibition. This includes the evolution of Paris and its influence on Cartier shapes, Louis Cartier’s connexions with Alberto Santos-Dumont and other pioneers of the age, the birth of the modern wristwatch, the everyday accessories designed to cater to a glamorous inter-war lifestyle and the evolution of Cartier watch designs and Cartier craftsmanship.
Cartier is a Global three times winner of the 2014-2015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 World Branding Awards in the Fashion – Jewellery category.
