Richard Orlinski teams up with Hublot
“This is a creation where time becomes a work of art, and where art becomes an expression of time!”
Known for his large scale sculptural installations such as the Wild Kong in Cannes, the Crocodile in Miami and the Bear in snowy Courchevel, French born artist Richard Orlinski has ventured into a new design collaboration.
Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot celebrates the arts by joining forces with Orlinski to reinterpret their signature Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph. The 45-mm timepiece emulates the artists angular sculptures with the design focusing on angles and reflections crafted by the ridges and facets of the piece. The watch reveals a totally innovative design, where folds, edges and features are reflected.
“The fusion of our two universes – that of Hublot who takes precious materials to create exceptional products, and my own bright world of colour inspired by Pop Art – came about quite spontaneously, almost naturally”. – Richard Orlinski
“Original, bold, intriguing, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski is a sculpture which tells the time. Unique, its entire structure is bevelled, shaped by the facets created by the world’s bestselling contemporary French artist. Its three-dimensional silhouette meant completely redesigning the construction of the case, whose facets have been extended to all the contours of the bezel.” – Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO, Hublot
Alongside Orlinski’s horology venture, the artist continues to unveil his life sized sculptures in new locations all over the world. Most recently in Paris with a big red Panda to celebrate the growing cultural and commercial relationship between the city of Chengdu in China and the 6th arrondissement, Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
