November 19th, 2012
sam-jerichow-brakket-01-preview

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Sam Says: The initial idea was to use the classic 7-segment digits and take their center segments away. To emphasize the missing of the center segments and to give the numbers an alien look, they have been given a big gap in the middle and a more dynamic look. The result are four pairs of brackets.

Delamination 001

Design submitted by Peter from the UK.

Peter says: I have always liked furniture and other products made out of formed and laminated materials like ply-wood. This type of material lends itself to ribbon like geometric and organic forms  which often have very dynamic looks. I decided it would be nice to design a watch around these types of forms with a laminated look, “Delamination” was born.

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: I thought about how when drawing round objects to make them look 3D, it often helps to include a reflection on the curved surface. Inspired by this idea, and the technology used for Kisai Rogue, I developed this pendant watch for ladies, called Droplet.  On a long chain, it’s easy for the wearer to turn it around to see the time, yet still have a neat looking fashion accessory.  Other people probably won’t even realize it’s telling the time. :)

Design submitted by Sam from Germany.

Concave LED watch with ripple effect

November 7th, 2012
concave0917

Design submitted by Heather from the USA.

Heather says: I came up with the idea for Concave when I thought about making circular digits, one behind the other.  In order to accomplish this, although the display is flat, I imagined each digit to be a curved surface, like a contact lens, for example.  By placing the digits one behind the other, and increasing size, we can see these concentric circular digits, each whose center segment is being partially blocked by the digit in front of it.

Design submitted by Colby from South Africa.

Colby says: With inspiration from the intrigue of The Bermuda Triangle and crop circles, coupled with the classic feel of 1960-1980′s sci-fi movies, the ‘Bermuda’ was born. My underlying principle was to use an unconventional watch shape, and include a one-of-a-kind function.

K-sec LCD watch for star travellers

November 1st, 2012
K-sec_01

Design submitted by Cory from the USA.

Cory says: There are no seasons on a starship. No weeks, months, or years. The minute becomes meaningless, since there are 60 of those in an ‘hour’ and 24 of those in a ‘day.’ Star faring humans long ago began using the Kilosecond. Metric time, for when the rotation of a distant homeworld no longer holds any bearing.
