The event had the hand of Toshiki Kiriyama of TRUNK LTD. ( also the responsible for the production of Grand Seiko’s exhibition last year on Milan Design Wkk 2018), as well as from the contemporary design studio We+, and even from the computer graphics director Shingo Abe. The exhibition was mainly focused on two main keywords: “FLUX” and “movement.”
“FLUX” portrayed the concept of continuous and gradual change over time, while “movement” presented some stunning visual computer graphic imagery made to represent the “perception of time” that is generated by the serenity of Spring Drive’s glide motion.
