Designed by renowned architect Will Alsop + Federico Grazzini, this watch features a high-contrast blue OLED digital display, framed by a bold geometric polyurethane case.
Daytimer is formed of Alsop's vision of objects in the world.
We see it present in the landscape; it has landed in the universe of objects, naturally, effortlessly.
It has a smart, adaptable, docile form, which encases its technological core while at the same time it is ironic and natural.
Although apparently clumsy, it wraps complacently round the wearer's wrist, presenting the owner with its 3D display; the OLED screen conveniently turning towards its owner and wanting to play.
Daytimer wants to be owned by its wearer, although inevitably it will attract the attention of others. It polygonises a human wrist. It loves humans and wants to be close to them. Or part of them.
Will was born in Northampton in 1947, lives in London and works everywhere.
His international practice is guided by the principle that architecture is both vehicle and symbol of social change and renewal.
Will Alsop follows a parallel path as an artist, feeling that it is a discipline inseparable from architecture. He was a tutor of sculpture at Central St.Martins College, London, and has held many other academic posts. His paintings and sketches have been exhibited alongside his architectural projects in dedicated exhibitions at the Soaneå_åÑÌös Museum, Milton Keynes Gallery, Cube Gallery, Manchester, the British Pavilion at Venice Biennale.
Federico was born in Viareggio, Tuscany, in 1963 and graduated in architecture in Florence. He lives in Bologna, after seven years in London, where his collaboration and friendship with Alsop began.
Grazzini works on a variety of projects from architecture to product and furniture design. He has spent periods working with Marks Barfield Architects (London) and on his return to Italy, Fuksas and Cucinella. As well as his design commissions he teaches interior design at Kent State University, and runs courses on product design and history of architecture in Florence.
