On 11 June, Swiss watchmaker MB&F opened its 2nd M.A.D. Gallery in Taipei, in collaboration with Taiwanese retail partners Swiss Prestige. The expansion of the influence and footprint of the innovative yet quirky brainchild project of founder Maximilian Busser comes shortly after its first boutique opened in Geneva in 2011.
The M.A.D.Gallery Taipei is located in the recently inaugurated, spectacular Mandarin Oriental, in the heart of vibrant Taipei. The Gallery’s interior design matches the look and feel of the Geneva address and also showcases a selection of MB&F timepieces together with other forms of mechanical and kinetic art: to name a few, Chicara Nagata’s stunning motorcycles from Japan, kinetic objects by UK-based Laikingland, stainless-steel sculptures by Chinese artist Xia Hang, or the ‘Machine Lights’ crafted by Frank Buchwald in Berlin.
