A STEP BEYOND THE FUTURE HAUTLENCE UNVEILS ITS NEW CONCEPT D’EXCEPTION, VORTEX

HTL_VORTEX_3_600x340The Neuchâtel-based contemporary watchmaker HAUTLENCE unveils its second and highly awaited Concept d’Exception, VORTEX. First launched in 2010, HAUTLENCE’s Concept d’Exception timepieces are extremely sought-after thanks to their extraordinary displays of time powered by incredible mechanical solutions that push the boundaries of traditional watchmaking. Avant-garde and daring, VORTEX is a true showcase of HAUTLENCE’s boundless creativity and audacious approach to watchmaking, reinterpreting all the design codes that are dear to the brand, such as a multi-level reading of time, materials that play on transparency and the use of nonconformist shapes. VORTEX is much more than simply a wristwatch; it is truly an exceptional timepiece featuring three patents in a mind-blowing three-dimensional case that offers a glimpse of its impressive movement from all sides. Inspired by contemporary architecture, this unique case flaunts a new look every hour as the cage of the regulating organ rotates 60 degrees every 60 minutes, thus turning VORTEX into a mesmerising mechanical piece of art.
“Pushing the boundaries whilst respecting tradition,” explains Founder and CEO of HAUTLENCE Guillaume Tetu while summing up the launch of VORTEX. “The idea behind the watch was to reveal our creative approach to watchmaking in a new Concept d’Exception. Ergonomic, contemporary and truly avant-garde, VORTEX remains true to HAUTLENCE’s design codes with its multi-level display of time, play on transparency, nonconformist geometry and link between mechanics and aesthetics. By combining all of these elements, we have created a watch that is powerful and majestic.”


Limited to 88 pieces, VORTEX displays half-trailing hours, retrograde minutes and a power-reserve indicator. Its futuristic and lively design changes every hour, as the entire regulating organ rotates 60 degrees every 60 minutes. Powering this new timepiece is a redesigned and reinterpreted version of the innovative in-house automatic calibre HR2.0 presented in the first Concept d’Exception. Named HLR2.0, this impressive new calibre is angled at 90 degrees, resulting in a remarkably ergonomic and modern timepiece.
HAUTLENCE collaborated with the prominent Parisian design studio BBDC, Berra Blanquer Design Consultants, to create VORTEX’s eye-catching and state-of-the-art design inspired by contemporary architecture. BBDC is active in many industries and is renowned for having brought to life several bestselling watch designs ever since its foundation in 1996.

Paris has long been the homeland of the artist. It is a city to which creative spirits make pilgrimage, while appreciative spirits love to bask in the atmosphere. There’s no better way to kick off your stay than by enjoying the Michelin-starred cuisine of Le Cinq, renowned restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris. From there, tour the newly opened Louis Vuitton Foundation, a striking building designed by Frank Gehry, which has as its mission the fostering and promotion of artistic creation on national and international levels. It also has a magnificent collection of fine art that must not be missed. Survey more of Paris on a private cruise along the Seine, and bid the city farewell over dinner in the Eiffel Tower.

The delightfully chic Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris was the first stop for travellers on the Backstage With the Arts tour and served as an ideal home base for the adventures ahead.

Diverse architecture in Lisbon

Lisbon, home to a spectrum of architecture from classical to Manueline to Gothic, offers the opportunity to explore art and architecture to your heart’s content. Start with a guided tour of the Berardo Collection Museum and then tour the ornate, Manueline-style Jeronimos Monastery. An excellent hub for travellers, Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon offers its own take on artistic décor. Allow at least three days to absorb the best of Lisbon: Be sure to visit the Museu Nacional do Azulejo, the Palais de Santos, and take a guided walk through Chiado Square and the surrounding area.

Visionnaire: a new flagship store in Dubai

Vissionaire1

First Flagship Vissionaire Store in Dubai

First flagship store in Dubai for Visionnaire, which lands with a 670 sqm showroom at Jumeirah First, Beach Road(near Four Season Hotel), one of the most exclusive districts of the capital city.

The area, a penthouse on the beach, is organized on two levels and alternates classical codes, related to the luxury tradition, to more contemporary codes which absorb the atmosphere of the city.
The setting follows the linguistic codes of the new furniture collection, inspired to a dandyism with gothic victorian atmospheres: luxury sofas for conversation, lacquered wood, precious chandeliers, a selection of contemporary art works and a wide outdoor collection make the Dubai showroom the real “place-to-go” of the metropolis for all those architects and interior decorators who search for “one of a kind” solutions. Luxury, style and quality: these are the founding values of Visionnaire, brand that, today more than ever, goes beyond a simple furnishing proposal.

Tailor-made projects, based on the customers’ needs, make Visionnaire the ideal partner both for private living projects and for luxury contract proposals. Thanks to this approach, Visionnaire has the opportunity of expanding
all over the world in the name of a new way of making furniture, not strictly connected to the product, but to a life philosophy.
