Omega’s new power reserve chronometer, featuring one of the brand’s most sophisticated movements, is a pared-back addition to its De Ville Trésor line. The very first Trésor, introduced in 1949, was a refined dress watch with a slim profile and a 30mm movement that the brand referred to as the “treasure.” This version continues to balance horological innovation with minimalist design. It’s fitted with a manual-winding calibre, which debuted in 2019, and inside the 40mm 18-carat yellow-gold case are a silver dial with power reserve indicator and small seconds sub-dials.

Glowing Terms

Luca Nichetto’s colorful glass furnishings debut at Stellar works’ new Manhattan showroom.

Seven years after the shuttering of Manhattan’s iconic Pearl Paint, Shanghai-based design firm Stellar Works is taking over the ground floor of the 1860 building that once housed the shop for its first permanent U.S. showroom.

Debuting with the space will be designer Luca Nichetto’s new Space Invaders collection, a series of tables, lamps and trays he created for the brand. With guidance from Stellar Works creative directors Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, Nichetto decided to combine their core materials—woods and metals—with his expertise in glassblowing, a craft that links generations of his Venetian family. He conceived of the pieces as compact, easy-to-move accessories that would work well in changing hospitality and workplace environments.

For the Dhala table and lamps (shown), Nichetto stacked minimal metal frames with bulbous Murano glass beads in juicy colors, while the Kaali tray is a halved egg of solid wood resting on a bright ceramic stone. Nichetto, who has studios in Venice and Stockholm, describes the objects as “friendly creatures peppered throughout a room that can, hopefully, make you smile—something we could use a lot more of these days.” Stellar Works Dhala table lamp, $1,650, stellarworks​.com. —Laura Raskin

Double Takes

A new show at Dallas Contemporary is an immersion in the world of artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov.

Russian-born conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov are renowned for their multisensory installations—complex and fanciful dreamscapes, sometimes optimistic, at turns rather dark. Paintings have always been a part of these alternate realities but arguably never the main attraction: “This is the first time we’re doing an exhibition where there’s mostly paintings. It’s very unusual for us,” says Emilia, 76, of Paintings About Paintings, the couple’s latest institutional show, which just opened at Dallas Contemporary in Texas. Though the program features an array of recent and new works on canvas—like Two Fragments (2019), shown—there is more to the story. The exhibition space has been completely transformed to resemble a museum from the past, and within this larger installation live smaller components, one of them musical, others interactive, including the 1998 work Charles Rosenthal: The Auction, 1927–1928, a more than 20-foot-wide painting of a busy auction hall, imbued with electrical elements that light up with the push of a button. The exhibition returns to the thematic interests that the Kabakovs have pursued for more than 30 years: utopia, fantasy, reality, oppression and escape, among them. “The work is concentrated on today,” explains Emilia, whose trips from the artists’ Long Island, New York, studio to Dallas have been her first since the pandemic began. Ilya, 88, has remained at home. “Where do we escape to during a time like this? For Ilya, it is an escape into the painting,” says Emilia. “The artist is concentrating on everything that is going on inside: The outside world exists, of course, but it is so far away right now.” dallascontemporary​.org. —Natalia Rachlin

MATTER OF FACT

On Beauty

As a K-pop singer in Seoul, Paul Baek found his skin was under constant scrutiny. When his music career went bust, the Harvard grad developed a vitamin C brightening serum so promising he raised $9.1 million in funding to start his skin-care brand, Matter of Fact. The trick? The serum stays fresh even after a year. $92; matteroffact.com. —Mickey Rapkin

Object of Desire

Tiffany & Co. has a long history with locks, dating back to the 1870s, when it sold functional padlocks. The lock shape later appeared as a decorative element on key rings, money clips, brooches and necklaces. Now the brand is mining this past for a jewelry line, Tiffany Lock, launching next year with four bracelets. “We created a unisex collection that offers a strong message of inclusivity,” says Alexandre Arnault, Tiffany & Co.’s executive vice president of product and communications, who has been charged with re-energizing the jewelry firm since

LVMH

acquired it earlier this year. Made in 18-karat yellow and rose gold, and available with or without diamonds, the bracelets will feature a swivel clasp that evokes a padlock in a subtle way. tiffany.com. —Jessica Iredale
