'ora' concept watch by alexandros stasinopoulos


greek designer alexandros stasinopoulos has sent us images of his latest concept watch ‘ora’.
 
the ‘ora’ concept is a study on the field of haute horlogerie.  it focuses on the display of
time via an unconventional mode, by replacing the expected dial arrangement found in
the vast majority of the mechanical watcheswith a set of three interwoven tapes – one to
indicate the hour(s), one to indicate the minute(s), and one to indicate the day.

the design of the case reflects an ‘inside-out’ design approach as it was the mechanism’s
arrangement that prescribed the overall form in an attempt to enhance its uniqueness
and create a distinctive silhouette.

btw alex was a former design aerobics participant and designboom would like to congratulate
him on his quality of work. if you would like to participate in our current courses check out
