Hublot Loves Art

“The art of fusion” has been a guiding principle of Hublot, beginning with their first timepiece that featured a gold case and rubber strap. Since then, the watchmaker has released one daring watch after another, receiving design prizes along the way.

Hublot makes it a point to frequently collaborate with artists and designers from various fields who share the same visions and passions as they do. In 2015 the watch house established the Hublot Design Prize, an award which enables young artists and designers to garner the public’s attention by showcasing their boldness and creativity.

Discussing the importance of art, Jean-Claude Biver, chairman of Hublot’s board says, “Unlike technology, art never becomes obsolete. A painting by Matisse or Renoir may not be liked by the new generation, but it can never be obsolete.”

Hublot and Richard Orlinski

Richard Orlinski is a top-selling French contemporary artist represented by more than 90 galleries around the world. Orlinski is an advocate of art’s democratization which is why his works revolve around everyday subjects and are presented in public spaces. His sculptures feature bright colors and diamond-cut like facets, which take inspiration from pop art and industrial materials. It was their shared enthusiasm for innovation as well total design freedom that led Orlinski to collaborate with Hublot.

Fusing the world of watchmaking and sculpture, Orlinski incorporates precious metals with his artistic style. As seen in the Orlinski Classic Fusion 40mm in King Gold and in Titanium Pavé, the watches display a faceted case and dial that plays around with light and shade, similar to the French artist’s sculptures.

The same thing goes with the Aerofusion Chronograph 45mm in King Gold Jewellery and in Titanium Pavé. Once again, Orlinski’s characteristic folds are present but this time presented with an open-worked dial.

Upon describing his collaboration with Hublot, Plescia-Büchi calls it a match made in heaven. He firmly believes that they are the epitome of the highest level of technical and creative innovation in their respective fields.

Plescia-Büchi designed the Sang Bleu models with the intent to showcase how the world of tattooing can be fused with the world of watchmaking. He does this through unifying precious materials symmetry and strong geometric lines as seen in the Sang Bleu One Click 39mm in King Gold Pave and in King Gold Blue.
