Cartier In Motion
|Author||Norman Foster ; Ed.|
|Status||out of print|
This magnificent publication marks an exhibition curated by Norman Foster, which took place at London’s Design Museum in 2017. Richly illustrated, the book explores the life and times of pioneering watchmaker Louis Cartier and his circle of friends in the context of early 20th-century Paris, highlighting the many connections to the period’s art, automobiles, aircraft, engineering, and fashion. Rather than envision a typical exhibition that would start and end with Cartier’s famed products, Foster presents a celebration of an era, with various artefacts and memorabilia reflecting a break with tradition, and illustrating how Cartier’s verve played a part the emergence of a truly modern lifestyle.
