A Symphony of Nature and Time

Inspired by the changing colours in the natural world, the collaboration between Japanese architect Tadao Ando and Bvlgari on the Serpenti Tubogas collection unveils a chord of seasonal allure.

The Serpenti Tubogas collection is a fusion between Japanese architect Tadao Ando’s style and Bvlgari’s celebration of the transient beauty found in nature’s ever-changing canvas. Tadao’s artistic vision infuses vitality into the iconic serpent, delicately capturing the essence of the shifting seasons through a captivating array of materials such as green aventurine, tiger’s eye and pink or white mother of pearl. Each watch within this series serves as a testament to the innate harmony and rhythm of the natural world, seamlessly intertwining Bvlgari’s rich heritage with the artist’s profound respect for the dynamic hues of nature. Reflecting this symbiosis, each timepiece is named after the seasons in Japanese.
