Vacheron Constantin is back to Homo Faber – celebrating artisanal talents in a wide range of disciplines, like fine watchmaking, enamelling or engraving. The Geneva Maison exhibited at the ‘Details: Genealogies of Ornament’ set in the Nautical School exhibition area at Fondazione Giorgio Cini.
The motto – ‘Crafting a more human future’ – of Homo Faber reflects the dedication for the beauty of creation, and the amazement of the ever-curious free mind. The Homo Faber opened its gates on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore between 10 April – 1 May, 2022.
Lesage, the creator of beautiful embroidery was also present at Homo Faber. Artisans of the Maison shared their unique skills at workshops in the ‘Discovery and Rediscovery’ section of the exhibition. We too took the needle in our hands.
Homo Faber’s ‘Discovery and Rediscovery’ section is the place for those wanting to look behind the scenes and solve some of the most astonishing decoration mysteries. We were delighted to learn about the sculpture-like grisaille visuals reproduced on enamel at Vacheron Constantin.
