In 2010, Maurice Lacroix and Wallpaper jointly launched their first collaboration project with designers Gwenaël Nicolas, Arik Levy and Neil Barrett, reinterpreting the 2007 Red Dot Design Award-winning work Pontos Décentrique GMT Bento series eccentric time wrist table.
In this year’s collaborative project, Le Méridien and Wallpaper are looking for designers who can always assert their beliefs and inject personal style into their work without compromising. The end result is this impressive trio: Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, Italian architect Rodolfo Dordoni, and Belgian designer Kris Van Assche.
