- Vacheron Constantin has collaborated with Singaporean industrial designer Olivia Lee, on an interactive installation to celebrate LESS’ENTIAL, at the Maison’s Singapore Marina Bay Sands Boutique.
- The installation is currently available in the Vacheron Constantin Marina Bay Sands Boutique in Singapore.
In spirit of Vacheron Constantin’s Less’ential yearly thematic, “Elements of Time” is a collection of interactive sculptures that explore the subjective and sensorial passage of time – representing cadence, flow and geometry. The installation’s vibrant colours contrast against the boutique’s natural hues, evoking an invitation to interact and experience the concept of time. Supplementing the installation, the boutique is enhanced with static sculptures depicting sand falling – capturing the moment of being frozen in time.
“Elements of Time is a delicate concept often gone unnoticed in the modern-day urban lifestyle. We are excited for clients to experience the excellence of Vacheron Constantin timepieces and immerse in the installation which heightens one’s sense of sight, sound, and touch, appreciating the passage of time. ”
Gaël Porte – Vacheron Constantin Managing Director, SEAO
Vacheron Constantin’s timepieces represent Less’ential, where the essence of excellence lives in many subtle details – a slender silhouette, clean lines, precision, and mechanical virtuosity. “Elements of Time” intends to represent the same link – where simplicity is the essence of beauty and provoke deliberation and evolution of mechanisms.
