Fuorisalone 2017: Abet laminates for the new Swatch Art Special by Paola Navone

27 March 2017

A modern nomad between east and west, her style transforms the world into a global village.

For her Swatch Art Special THAMMADA (the word comes from a Thai expression meaning “simple things”) Paola Navone created a mix of geometric and natural elements – dots and stripes, black and white, blue and red flowers – that unexpectedly come together to form a harmonious pattern. There’s a mischievous touch, too, as the design is invaded by a camouflage pattern apparently going viral – multiplying, spreading fast and leaping playfully from one simple thing to the next.

The big tables on which the watches – produced in a limited and numbered edition – are exhibited are made of digitally printed Abet laminates reproducing the pattern that characterizes THAMMADA.
