Mechanics, craftsmanship meet at Cartier 'garage' in Macau
Friday, February 09, 2018
Luxury jeweler Cartier is presenting its iconic creations, including Juste un Clou, Panthère de Cartier and the classic Love collection at an exhibition in Macau.
The jeweler's innovations and creativity are being housed in a pop-up display, called ‘Precious Garage’ that Cartier is hosting at T Galleria by DFS, Macau, Shoppes at Four Seasons until February 28.
The installation was designed by New York-based Puerto Rican visual artist Desi Santiago. His concept of a luxurious automotive garage integrates the technique of shape casting with the intricacy of internal machinery, interpreting the design philosophy of Cartier – to elevate the everyday into extraordinary jewelry pieces.
The ‘Precious Garage’ explores mechanics and jewelry craftsmanship. Cartier jewelry and watches are displayed in working tool drawers alongside scattered instruments used by car mechanics. An elevated gold Corvette drips golden liquid onto the floor.
