1925 Watch

1925 Watch

Regular price $ 179.00

by Projects Watches

Anni Albers' tapestry Wallhanging, 1925 is the inspiration for this watch. The design interprets her tapestry as mesmerizing layers of circles, which turn as the minutes pass. Color blocks from the tapestry become indicators of the time: red for the hours, blue for the minutes, yellow for the seconds.

Anni, a foremost textile designer of the 20th century, made major innovations in the field of functional materials. An adventurous graphic artist and important figure in the Bauhaus, she took printmaking technique into a previously uncharted territory.

This is one of our first releases with The Albers Foundation, who carry on the legacy and ideas of Anni and Josef.
