For the past few weeks I have worked on a new series. It’s unusual for the blog, but not for me. Since this website is formed by my interests, it is just a matter of time before Hermès appears more often than once a year.
Some of us dream of pausing time, or going back in time. But we can never stop the march of time.
Hermès presents The Gift Of Time – an exhibition at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Designed by Hilton McConnico, the exhibition tells a story (or several) about Hermès with contemplations of time. The concept of time is inherent to all the exhibits, with the exhibition space represented as time itself – with a circular, clock-like, walk-through layout. It provides playful interpretations to time (free time, suspending time, cycles of time, what comes with time, etc) with the use of Hermès products to construct various installations.
Whether you are a fan of Hermès or not, you should plan a trip to The Gift Of Time. The exhibition is free and will be open to public from now till 12 August 2012, 11:00AM ~ 09:00PM daily. Some areas of Tanjong Pagar Railway Station are also open to public during this period.
Have you ever wondered why people would pay a small fortune for Hermès products? Or why do Birkin bags command years-long wait lists? Or why do their stores carry this mystical air of timelessness? Learn about the magic behind Hermès
