Heather says: I was thinking about how I could make a flat LED display appear 3D, and it occurred to me that I could give the appearance of a sphere by using some curved lines. Then I broke up some of these lines asymmetrically to form four digits, each comprised of 5 rows of 3 dashes.
Laszlo says: The Sonar watch is an analog-binary hybrid concept where the hours indicated in usual place and the minutes indicated in binary format. Power on your brain, think in binary and read the time quickly. Give me 0101 stars and share this with your friends!
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.
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.
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. 🙂
