Needle Watch (2017)
Design by Arturo Tedeschi
Software: Rhinoceros – Grasshopper
Arturo Tedeschi has been kind enough to share with us his concept design for a dress-watch done with Rhinoceros and Grasshopper.
"Who said that the output of an algorithm should necessarily be complex and intricate? The Needle Watch explores the possibilities given by the algorithmic-modeling in the field of product design, reaching a sophisticated minimalism which is usually the outcome of a traditional design approach. Inspired by 70’s -watches style, the algorithm manages a set of constraints mostly related to design-proportions and generates the main parts of the watch: case, grooved bezel, winding crown, bracelet. In particular, the seamless crown-guard details is totally created as an algorithmic output."
