For the opening of Château Borély, now Musée des Arts Décoratifs, de la Faïence et de la Mode in Marseille, Mathieu Lehanneur has designed a monumental chandelier for the entrance hall. “This chandelier was conceived as a rope of light crossing the ceiling, only bands of light and glass are visible. It is not an object.

Unusual and timeless, Take Time ! by Mathieu Lehanneur is the reinvention of an old classic for the digital age to create a new contemporary unisex, watertight and compact archetype. With an ideal synthesis of the codes of the watch- making tradition for the Instagram generation, the French designer draws upon the collective psyche ‘between the pocket watch and the pendulum of Professor Cuthbert Calculus’ to finally take a firm grasp of time. Lovely to look at as well as to use, Take Time ! nestles in the palm of your hand, slips onto your wrist or onto your belt. As the months go by the Take Time ! range will diversify with new colours, new sizes and new materials for all those for whom time is simply an accessory. From 8th September to 25th December 2012, Mondomio is hosting the Lexon Time watch collection in its showroom at 38 rue de Bellechasse in Paris (7th).  Lire la suite…
