Wave Watch

The goal was to have a mechanical watch that can be read both from front view and side view. The idea behind the design of the Wave watch rises from the need aforementioned. In order to achieve this goal, different forms were examined. Ziggurats (ancient temples) and waves are two suitable examples that could be used to model the idea. The circular form of wave and the stepped form of the Ziggurats where merged to realize the idea. The recurrence of time is symbolized in the wave form, and the addition of a second dimension is achieved through stepped Ziggurat form.

RK 022-4BRs

A certain eyecatcher and conversation piece! This kinetic ring made from black carbon coated stainless steel, 18ct white gold and diamonds breaks with your expectations how jewellery is made and might look like.

But the real sensation is when it comes to live on your finger - with every movement of the wearers hand the upper part will start to spin and the sparkling diamonds will catch your eyes and create ongoing attention.

Charmas

Charmas is a project that consists in a pair of sunglasses, in 18Kt white gold and diamonds 4,2 ct, made unique by the particular texture that recalls the antique granulation art in a modern context.
