Jewelry and Watches: The designer of the internationally recognized wristwatch with a Braille face, Haptica, David Chavez will be a featured designer at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, as part of the Smithsonian Institution’s “National Design Triennial: Why Design Now? exhibition. The exhibit opens May 14 and runs through January 9, 2011.

The Why Design Now? exhibition explores works of designers who address human and environmental issues with their creations. Categories range from architecture to product design to fashion to graphics to new media and to landscape design as a sampling of the wide berth of featured designers. GE sponsors the show.

“The invitation to participate in the 2010 National Design Triennial came as a welcomed milestone as well as an opportunity to bring attention to a consumer market that is often overlooked,” said Mr.Chavez. For me, the aesthetic value of this Braille watch was just as important as its functionality.”

It’s about time.
