Review Milano Design Week 2017: Abet digitally printed laminates for the new SWATCH ART SPECIAL by PAOLA NAVONE
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 – were exhibited, have been made of digitally printed Abet laminates reproducing the pattern that characterizes THAMMADA.
