Battersea Power Station was lit up for the sound-and-light show The Golden Ratio Musical hosted by iconic watchmakers Jaeger-LeCoultre. As a way to celebrate the “arithmetical equation that defines beauty,” Jaeger-LeCoultre collaborated with genre-defining British artist TØKIO M¥ERS who composed a stunning original symphony to accompany the light show. As part of their Made of Makers programme, Jaeger-LeCoultre commissioned the piece of music.
Showcased at the 1931 Cinema, a venue at the recently restored Battersea Power Station, The Golden Ratio Musical brought together a dynamic and deft display that tells the story of the Golden Ratio, or what we know as the discovery of the mathematical formula 1.618, also known as Phi (φ). ‘golden number.’ The event, which has already awed audiences in Los Angeles, Shanghai, and now London, shows the beauty of the ‘golden ratio’ and how it can be used across nature, architecture, and luxury craftsmanship, like watchmaking.
The event is a nod to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s own original design of Reverso was crafted with the Golden Ratio in mind, representing the universal signifier of beauty and harmony. It’s been nine decades since the first variation of the Reverso yet still, to this day, it is one of the watchmaker’s most defining timepiece.
