Pier Paolo Pala
Italian architect Ernesto Rogers once famously stated that he wanted to design everything from “a spoon to a city”. Pritzker Prize winning architect Richard Meier has done nearly that with his newly designed wristwatch, which becomes part of the prolific collection of objects designed by the architect. In collaboration with the Markuse Corporation the Meier designed Ana Watch adheres to a modernist vocabulary, focusing on proportion, human scale and the manipulation of a strong geometry. “Working on various designs of objects used in daily life, such as watches, I am conscious of participating in a tradition of architects that worked in a variety of scales such as Joseph Hoffmann and Frank Lloyd Wright. In my case, the theoretical point of departure is consistently related to function and beauty,” said Richard Meier.
We want to know your opinion about architects and product design. For you, what is the importance of the architect’s ideals provided in a compact form? Leave us your answer in the comments below, and among all the registered users who comment, thanks to Markuse and Richard Meier Architects, one of our readers can win this exclusive watch.
You can become a registered user right here, and make sure to share with us your comment by Sunday, September 18th. More information about the Richard Meier designed Ana Watch along with official rules can be found after the break.
