The story of “2”
Regularly, through immersive exhibitions, we display, rearrange and distort things that we have produced within the spheres of art, fashion, music, publishing, theatre or cinema, making parts of our world tangible. Visitors are invited to wander through these time–space–hubs, which are structured using original display elements. This peculiar collection of objects materialises and reveals our ‘icons, indices and symbols’ in real life.
As a world must have language and grammar, the WORLD OF M/M has an original geometric typeface. “2” is the watch of this world, with the 12 hours represented in colourful volumes displayed in a circular space – a gradated black hole. “2” tells the time of the WORLD OF M/M, a perfect microcosm and a portable universe that projects seconds, minutes, hours and days onto the wrist, in a disruptive spiral between the 2 axes of space and time.
—M/M (Paris), October 2021
M/M (PARIS) very first timepiece, tagged with offbeat names – “2HAPPY”, “2LAZY” and “2BUSY” — the series indicates time with a bespoke, extraordinary 3D dial in a playful, fashionable modular typography.
30 years after their inception in 1992, M/M (PARIS) articulates for the first time their unique design language on their very first timepiece series. M/M (PARIS) believes there are no boundaries between creative realms. Having proved their statement over the past three decades with prolific works across all the creative industries, the 2 of them have distilled their minds and charisma into a series of three unique timepieces, built around a bespoke dial showcasing M/M (PARIS) world famous typography like a display of miniature sculptures on the beholder’s wrist, telling both time and stories. Proportions of watch hands and design of modular numbers on the dial reflect the philosophy of the duo by putting time in context.
