I chose one where we was supposed to make a new watchdial to tell time. I passed, but since the design had no other purpose that to show my teacher I thought it would be great to enter this contest with it.

This design called “Deflection” gets around this issue but retains the retro futuristic look.

LED watch inspired by building spaces

Design submitted by Moatasem from Egypt.

Moatasem says: As an Architect and a Design developer, the idea came from applying architectural principals to form a dynamic geometry that is both minimal and attractive. The flow of a basic module helps to create accurate spaces in buildings; that also applies to objects such as wrist watches. Continue reading LED watch inspired by building spaces
