Gems of Time 2014

Asylum Supervisor

The exhibition, which ran as part of SalonQP fine watch fair, focused on the fusion of fine jewellery and horology. We were responsible for fabricating the showpiece set, displaying the most intricate and expensive watches.

Working closely with the designer, Asylum produced refinements to the set so all relevant jewellery cases could be fitted exactly. The details such as frame, skirting and coving shape were explored until the client was happy.

For the entrance of the set, there was a projection on the wall, surrounded by a large bespoke frame. A rig was constructed that securely held the projector and its wires. On location it was possible to adjust the position in small increments very easily until the image was perfectly aligned.
