CULTURE CLUB

On Nov. 3, Surface hosted the 57th installment of our Design Dialogues series in partnership with Jaeger-LeCoultre to celebrate the heritage Swiss horology brand’s newly opened Reverso 1931 Cafe on Manhattan’s Upper East Side—and the 90th anniversary of its namesake timepiece. This edition, moderated by Surface senior editor Ryan Waddoups, featured Stephen Harrison, the chief curator of the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute, lettering artist Alex Trochut, and perceptual artist Michael Murphy. The latter two spoke about their practice and participation in Jaeger LeCoultre’s Made of Makers program, which invites world-class artists to collaborate with the brand’s expert artisans to explore the intersection between the creative industries and horology. When the conversation wrapped up, guests enjoyed pastries specially designed by Paris-based chef Nina Métayer. Notable guests included Arielle Assouline-Lichten, David Weeks, Ara Thorose, and Anne-Laure Ritter. Photography courtesy of Jaeger-LeCoultre.
