[ Overview ]
With precious stones that are miraculously formed over an expanse of time, and designs inspired by all things under the sun, including the world’s cultures and nature, Cartier’s creations are a product of outstanding artisanal techniques. The works are engaged in a dialogue with the earth and civilization that transcends both time and space. Based on the theme, “Crystallization of Time,” and made up of three sections, “Colors and Material Transformation,” “Forms and Design,” and “Universal Curiosity,” this exhibition explores Cartier’s groundbreaking designs. Moreover, the New Material Research Laboratory (Hiroshi Sugimoto and Tomoyuki Sakakida), which oversaw the design of the exhibition scenography, has created a cyclical space inspired by time to invite visitors to an unique viewing experience.
