petit h, an exhibition by Hermès lands in Singapore, opening from 22 November to 15 December this year and held at Hermès Liat Towers.
Notable for its unique approach to the creation of desirable Hermès objects, the petit h initiative brings together artisans and artists to work with materials for which other Hermès métiers have no further use. Creation at petit h therefore works in reverse, since the starting point is neither a preconceived idea nor a grand design, but leftover materials or abandoned remnants with which skilful hands and clever minds use to improvise, combining them in a thousand and one different ways.
The petit h workshop mischievously gives form and meaning to unique, limited edition objects in shapes and colours that do not necessarily go hand in hand, and above all that are not obvious matches.
During its stopover, petit h grows its roots deeply into the lifestyle and culture of the city - by creating special edition products, curating a meaningful assortment, and even, working with a local designer for the event’s scenography. For the edition held here, Singaporean industrial designer, Ms. Olivia Lee, has been tapped by Creative Director of petit h, Godefroy de Virieu, to lend her vision for our event's scenography.
