The main focus of this exhibition for Milan Design Week this year will be the Spring Drive, which consists of an innovative mechanism characterized by precision and the smooth glide motion of the second’s hand. So with the help of a team of Japan’s cutting edge artists, this mechanism will be brought to life in a series of installations that will allow visitors to enjoy a sensibility and beauty related to Japan, as well as having a clearer notion on Grand Seiko’s view of the nature of time.

The initiative for Milan Design Week will be reflected in two words: “FLUX” and “movement.” “FLUX” will be presented by We+ and it will be portraying the concept of continuous and gradual change over time. To obtain the effect allusive to that idea they will be using a special liquid, which, when a soft light is reflected on it, will allow its motion to be visible. “movement” on the other hand, will be created by Shingo Abe and will be featuring visual computer graphic imagery in order to represent the “perception of time” that is generated by the serenity of Spring Drive’s glide motion.

Take a moment to enjoy some of the highlights of Milan Design Week 2019

The exhibition hall will be enveloping visitors in a soft cocoon-like atmosphere, made with a “Koyori” washi paper. This delicate yet sturdy hand-made paper will be surrounding the corners of the hall and will make the conditions to allow the visitors to enjoy a uniquely Japanese sensibility and beauty.

Grand Seiko has always been known as a luxury watch brand that pursued the true essence of time since its birth all the way back in 1960, through its subtle design aesthetic as well as its precision in every detail of every watch. Once again in Milan Design Week, they will have the chance to show an element that makes them unique among many watch brands.
