Vacheron Constantin presents the “Arts & Crafts & Design: Time according to ECAL and Swiss Craftsmen”, an exhibition produced in partnership with ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne and the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte for the Swiss Pavilion at the Milan Expo (May 1st – October 31st 2015), and presented as a preview during the Salone del Mobile at the Museo Bagatti Valsecchi in Milan.

This original approach links contemporary creation to several time-honoured know-hows. Within the framework of this project, Vacheron Constantin has asked 12 students from the Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship of ECAL to combine their creativity with that of experienced craftsmen in order to produce unique objects and demonstrate the richness, the variety, as well as the relevance to contemporary creation of these artisanal crafts. Under the leadership of Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin (Studio Formafantasma) these 12 “duos” have worked on the same theme, Time, and more precisely on the cyclical time of the seasons, using materials as diverse as paper, stone, glass or carbon.
