Ross Lovegrove x Issey Miyake Hu Watch
While the name Ross Lovegrove may not ring immediate bells, the famed industrial designer essentially rose to design stardom for his design of the original Sony Walkman as well as more recently with that of the Apple iMac. Teaming up with another well-known designer in fashion’s Issey Miyake, the duo with the help of Seiko unveil their Hu watch. The watch’s characteristics include a design incorporating elements of contour and anatomy to fully integrate with the wearer. The special shape wraps around the wrist with an angled dial for easy visibility. The watch itself is deemed to be an extension of Miyake’s own harmony with human form over clothing, technique, attention to materials and style according to Lovegrove. Available later this year in September.
