May is a month of arts and design, with Art Basel Hong Kong running from May 15 to 18, and Le French May unfolding. Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet is also channelling the spirit.

Working in collaboration with French designer Mathieu Lehanneur, the watchmaker will create a VIP lounge at Art Basel, inspired by its headquarters in Le Brassus in the Vallée de Joux. Inside, you will find a reflective video piece by Austrian video artist Kurt Hentschläger and a retrospective exhibition of Audemars Piguet timepieces, including all new models of the Royal Oak Offshore.
