New Alessi Grow Watch Available at Watchismo - Designer: Andrea Morgante of Shiro Studo




 
The 'Alessi Grow Watch' is a new timepiece designed by Andrea Morgante of London-based Shiro Studio for Alessi.  The watch concept is derived  from the 'act of growing' which often results in forms and patterns which we can all instinctively relate to.  The surface of the design features a rippled texture, much like the muscle fibers which lay below our skin.  Perceived as a single entity rather than an assembly of multiple mechanical parts, 'grow' is an external manifestation of our bodies' qualities.

IKEPOD Now Has A Cool New Home -> WATCHISMO!



IKEPOD NOW AVAILABLE AT WATCHISMO!

We're longtime fans and very proud to offer one of the coolest brands in the history of watchmaking

Combining a multitude of influences, from Switzerland to Australia, and across to New York, Ikepod is a watch brand like no other - boasting some of the most wonderfully individual watches of the modern age. Designer Marc Newson designed all the watches and his aesthetic genius is evident in each understated piece that is elegantly simple with a truly avant-garde spirit. Collaborations with other artists include a watch in conjunction with Jeff Koons and KAWS.

Ikepod Horizon
The Ikepod Horizon's unique dial creates the optical illusion of appearing convex, thereby emphasizing the three dimensional volume of the IKEPOD case. It makes reference to the “event horizon” in astrophysics, literally meaning the edge of a “black hole” – the moment when gravity becomes infinite, when both time and space disappear. The timeless beauty and simplicity of this wristwatch, juxtaposed with its reference to the mathematical end of time and space, underscore the poetry and fleeting nature of timekeeping itself.
Ikepod Kaws Horizon
Never one to limit himself within the confines of a specific category of artistic expression, the latest artist collaboration with KAWS takes shapes with the street artist curating a custom-designed Ikepod Horizon Wristwatch. Bringing together the Swiss watchmaker’s affinity for contemporary and modern timepieces, the Ikepod KAWS collaborative effort sees the trademark Chomper teeth motif emblazoned across the black dial with the dual lines of his “X” graphic comprising the hour and minute hands. True to the original Horizon models designed by Marc Newson, the watch features a 44mm case and beautifully brushed bezel.
Self Winding Mechanical Movement Swiss Caliber ETA 2892 Automatic Hours, Minutes Sapphire Crystal 5ATM Water Resistant to 50m Titanium Case Rubber Strap Diameter 44mm
Ikepod Hourglass w/ Millions of Stainless Steel Yellow Gold Plated Nanoballs
Marc Newson's latest creation for Ikepod sees the Australian designer interpret the most iconic timepiece of all: The Hourglass. Director Philip Andelman traveled to Basel, Switzerland, to document the designer's modern take of the classic hourglass inside the Glaskeller factory (see video on product pages). Each hand made hourglass comprises highly durable borosilicate glass and millions of stainless steel nanoballs.
