Nonlinear SLIP Watch Giveaway! Same Time, But Not Same Place

"Sometimes all it takes is the slightest nudge to turn something ordinary into extraordinary."

by Nonlinear Studio
Design by Evan Clabots

This simple, minimal watch appears to have slipped on the band. This inferred movement gives the watch its unique character. The face crosses the wrist band at 20 degrees, making it more ergonomic to read. The edge of the band penetrates the casing at hours 12 and 9, making the minimal face easier to read. A continuous 1" nylon strap slides through the back of the watch eliminating the need for removable pins that can fail or become lost.

Designer Profile - Evan Clabots

Evan Clabots studied at both the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and the University of Art and Design in Helsinki (TAIK) in Finland. Before finishing his studies, he had received the Gersh Abraham Award for Design Excellence from Swingline and had licensed a product with IKEA.

In 2004, he joined the NYC based studio, Dror. As the first hire of the fledgling studio, Clabots headed both the Product Design and Interior Design departments. During his time at Dror he designed products for clients including Alessi, Boffi, Cappelini, Puma, Swarovski, and Target, and designed commercial interiors for Levi’s Footwear, Creative Recreation, and NYC fashion retailer Atrium. His work at Dror has been recognized twice with the Good Design award from the Chicago Athenaeum and featured at La Triennale di Design Milan.

In 2010, Clabots founded Nonlinear Studio, a multidisciplinary creative studio offering a broad range of services including product design, furniture design, interior design, brand identity and art direction. Nonlinear is focused on using the creative process as a brand development tool, understanding the interrelation of branding, design and media reach. The studio has worked for clients including Ralph Lauren, NBC, Mother Industries, Ikon3 and is currently developing projects for Design Within Reach.

In 2011, Nonlinear began producing a line lifestyle goods, starting with its launch of the Slip Watch. Since the studio’s inception, Clabots work has been featured internationally in the press including Fast Company, Design Quarterly, and Surface Magazine’s “American Legion” featuring America’s leading new creative talents.

For Clabots, design is a process of developing a complete story. Form no longer follows function. Instead, there is an interconnected play between what something looks like, how it works and how it interacts with someone’s life. His process is driven by the question of “why something is?”, not “what something is?”. Each defining element in his work acts in context with the other. Together they form a cohesive and compelling narrative.
