Alternatives: from Krayon's most poetic clock to Prouvé's chairs

Four years after winning the Innovation Award at the GPHG 2018 for his first creation Everywhere, Krayon has just won the Calendar and Astronomy Award at this year's Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève for a new masterpiece, Anywhere. He now offers an unprecedented complication: What if it were possible to know the exact time of sunrise and sunset at a specific location chosen by each? Wherever you are or imagine you are.

And anywhere on the planet. Anywhere is the clock that indicates the length of the day and the time of sunrise and sunset, wherever you choose to be. A first in watchmaking, a bespoke ephemeris created by Rémi Maillat, engineer and watch designer, and founder of Krayon that seeks to indicate the time of our intimate relationship with the Earth. "Because there is no place more important than that of each one, the one you imagine, the one of a fond memory, the one of your heart," says Maillat.

Chairs bear more stress on the hind legs, since they are the ones that absorb the weight of the upper body. The engineer and designer Jean Prouvé applied this simple idea to the unmistakable design of the Standard chair that is reissued, as is, for Vitra.

It is available with a wooden seat and back or in the Standard SP plastic model. And there is also the Chaise Tout Bois, a version made entirely of solid wood and plywood, like those edited by Jean Prouvé during World War II in response to the scarce supply of metal.

CamperLab offers an avant-garde and distinctive vision of fashion. It is a hotbed of disruptive ideas translated into the form of transgressive designs, experimental silhouettes and a daring chromatic palette such as the impressive Venga boot designed to provoke in trend key.

The Madrid gallery Hilario Galguera presents El cuarto flamenco. Avalancha, his second exhibition in Madrid. This group show, which can be seen until February 4, is made up of works by four Belgian artists: Willem Boel, Maxime Brigou, Marie Cloquet and Stijn Cole (in the image).

Seventy One is the gin designed by the legendary fashion photographer and artist Mert Alas. It has taken more than four years to see the light of day and selects only exceptional, high-quality botanicals through a bespoke production process.

Each limited edition is slowly aged for 71 nights in oak barrels, providing unrivaled smoothness and adding an extra dimension of sophistication, imbuing the spirit with a golden shimmer.
