Patricia Urquiola Presents Ideas For The New Panerai Store

Originated from enthusiasm for Italy’s outstanding design, the high-end sports watch brand Panerai and internationally renowned designer Patricia Urquiola have opened a new round of cooperation. Patricia Urquiola will conceive a new concept for five boutiques of the Florentine brand Panerai. All five projects have strategic significance for Panerai and will be launched in the summer of 2014, including new flagship stores in Florence, Hong Kong, Miami, and new specialty stores in New York and Paris.

  Patricia Urquiola was born in Spain, studied and worked in Italy, and has deep roots in Italy. She has worked with many well-known masters in Italian design history, including Achille Castiglioni and Vico Magistretti. Its design career is mainly based on Italy, and has created various types of projects for many well-known brands around the world. The opportunity for the collaboration between Urquiola and Panerai began in the 2011 O’Clock-time design, design time exhibition, where she led the design and art direction of the exhibition. The partner of the high-end watch brand Panerai for this exhibition, the theme is the relationship between time and design, curated by the Triennale Design Museum of Milan, and successively exhibited in Milan and Beijing.
   Panerai Global CEO Angelo Bonati said, ‘Inviting Patricia Urquiola to build and create a new concept store is an exciting challenge. We have gained a deep understanding of Patricia through the O’Clock exhibition, which extends to A deeper and strategic foundation for cooperation. I call it a challenge because this cooperation inspired many elements: on the one hand, a high-end brand with a military background, a strong and unique image, upholding unique values ​​and showing in simplicity. Classical aesthetics; the other side is a Spanish designer with different elements, fully showing her boundless creativity from her ability to color, shape and break through the conventional. But we have the same dedication, including love for design, rigorous Style, heritage of the brand and the pursuit of excellence.
  The strategic significance of the five projects fully demonstrates the importance of Patricia Urquiola’s cooperation with Panerai. The first project was in the most historic Florence store. Panerai founded this store in 1860, located in the Archbishop’s Palace, facing the Baptistery. Store windows will be increased from one to four. As one of the historic monuments in the Tuscan capital, the restoration works to be completed will fully follow its original features. The second project is located in the heart of Canton Road’s high-end luxury shopping district in Hong Kong. It will become the world’s largest Panerai specialty store after a few months of unveiling. Hong Kong is a major city in the global luxury watch industry. For Panerai, it has been an important market for many years. The third project is located in Miami’s new design park, which is dedicated to developing into one of the world’s centers for high-end brands, design and contemporary art. Another project is also located in the United States. In cooperation with Patricia Urquiola, Panerai opened a new specialty store in the most advantageous location on Madison Avenue in New York, replacing the old store currently located across the street. Patricia Urquiola’s last project is the second Panerai Paris store, which will soon be unveiled in the summer of 2014, in the high-end shopping area Rue de Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
   Patricia Urquiola said, ‘I consciously share my heart with Panerai, because we share the same values, we are also meticulous in design and technology, but we don’t show traces, we don’t show off, and the style is simple. Those who are interested can discover the meaning and it is worth it. Trust and fully feel the dedication and persistence of quality.
  As new stores open one after another, details of the new concept will be fully revealed. Each design combines local features with the history and personality of Panerai. The sea world can also be felt in the design of the new store. Because Panerai first supplied precision instruments for the Italian Navy, it has deep roots in the ocean, and thus created the first Panerai watches born in the 1930s and 1940s.
