On Thursday January 24, Bangkok’s top celebrities, socialites and notable names gathered on the ground floor of Central Embassy. Japanese luxury watch brand Grand Seiko was unveiling its art installation — ‘The Flow of Time’ — in Thailand for the very first time ever, and Bangkok’s glitterati were ready to celebrate.
After its grand debut at Milan Design Week back in 2018, The Flow of Time made its way to Bangkok, and an opening reception was held to commemorate the affair. The event was led by managing director Katsumi Kubota, and general manager of Seiko (Thailand) Kenichi Kito. Distinguished guests enjoyed an exceptional evening of mingling, free-flow champagne and delectable cocktail bites before experiencing an exclusive preview of the exhibition itself.
Who Was There?
The launch was well attended by Bangkok’s top faces, including Onchuma Durongdej, ML Kathathong Thongyai and Fa Benedetti. Satoshi Yoshiizumi — one of the Japanese artists behind the exquisite installation featured — flew in directly from Japan to share stories behind the exhibition’s making.
