Hublot and ECAL, the Lausanne University of Art and Design, have teamed up for this limited edition limited edition sledge that is perfect for hitting the slopes on.
The Hublot Sledge features ash wood for the structure, hand-sewn leather for the seat, carbon fibre for the handles and steel for the runners.
In line with the “Engineered Craft” principle, these 4 materials have all been hand-worked by artisans at the peak of their craft.
The prototype was created in partnership with Graf, a company from Thurgovie, based on the “Roedel” competition model.
The result is a beautiful object which not only boasts an incomparable design, but is also fast, stable, manoeuvrable and robust, and would be equally at home on the snow-covered slopes as on display in a handsome chalet.
The Hublot Sledge is the fruit of a collaboration between Hublot and ECAL, as part of the MAS-Luxe course (Masters in Luxury Design and Industry) for which Hublot has been one of the main sponsors since its inauguration.
The Sledge will be officially on display to mark the Alpine World Ski Championships in Garmisch Partenkirchen for which Hublot is the Official Timekeeper.
Limited to only 10 pieces worldwide, the high tech sledge will be officially on display to mark the Alpine World Ski Championships in Garmisch Partenkirchen for which Hublot is the Official Timekeeper.
