A Window in Time. Since the beginning, transparency has been an integral part of our creations. This week, discover how our creations avail this principle of vision. Re-discover our first timepiece, the Double Tourbillon 30° in 5N red gold, Silvered gold dial (2004).
Matrix Light & Bench -The Matrix project is and began as a system to allow for endless configurations and constructions. The base concept is derived from architectural constructions and solutions for multipurpose form meets function situations.
As the construction of the Matrix is built up of individual ribs, the ribs can be designed any which way. This allows the system to be applied to products as well as interior features, or even architectural structures themselves.
When view from the front the grid structure has a very transparent character but as the structures start to bend the transparency disappears in a gradient of light type fashion. The inner surfaces of each individual square capture and play with light and appear differently from all other perspectives.
A showcase of surfaces, seating and lighting that together show a broad application of the concept, to showcase the possibilities as well as the visual aesthetic.- #newwork#grid#roosters#transparency
#TotalHonestyTuesday: the holidays are always a weird time for me. Unlike most people, I always sort of dread the arrival of the season. I’m surrounded by family, but I find that past losses and painful memories seem to scream a little louder... taunt me a little more than usual. I try to throw myself into cooking, laughing in the kitchen, clinking glasses with my favorite people on earth. But it’s hard for me to ignore the empty seats and to block out the flashes of pain, no matter how tightly I shut my eyes or try and make a joke out of it and laugh it off. This year, I’m baking about a trillion things + have piles of books and work and writing writing writing to keep me busy. I’m holding out for some healing and light and sunshine memories to weave their way into my heart and mind. Comment and tell me your happiest holiday memories + traditions! ❤️
My current... no filter #ByeFelicia twists and all 😂
Yeah... at 15% BF even I jiggle a lil bit & that’s okay 😉 I’ve been in this stagnant state. I️ could blame the traveling, school, or my tiredness. OR I️ can be proud of the days I have put in work and did SOMETHING. Just be good to and appreciate your body.! I haven’t ate meat (only seafood) since the end of September/start of October (can’t really remember the date)
I’ve gone from 132lbs to 129lbs
15.4 BF to 14.9
40.6 Muscle to 42
21.2 BMI to 19.5
Small changes in numbers but just sharing #transparency
Meet Christina, @christina .hanna, our latest #swimwearactivist and gorgeous #wcw!
Home: New Zealand
Day job: PhD Researcher – Environmental Planning
Chill out: Beach walks, reading, drinking tea and yoga
Icons: Firstly, at a personal level, my mum, because she is an all-round superwoman, but recently, I have also been really inspired by leading female figures, @brinkleydavies and @emmawatson . These two women are making ground breaking change in their prospective fields and they inspire me to make positive changes to the lives of people within and beyond current generations, as well as other species and the social-ecological system we inhabit
Fav swimwear: @Baiia_label ! Not only are the togs made with recycled post-consumer waste, they are coloured with water based dyes, crafted by workers in ethical conditions and they help me be more of a minimalist – having two pairs of togs in one! What more could you want?! Oh wait, they also give 10% profit to charity!
Why ethical+sustainable swimwear? I’m passionate about ethical swimwear production as I have grown up in and around water, from water fights and diving contests with my sisters, to many years of competitive swimming and summer holidays at the beach. As I am only purchasing ethical, sustainable products, it’s great to be able to have beautiful, consciously produced togs to spend my summer days in. I would like to see images and videos of the production processes (from material creation, to dying, processing, sewing etc.) so there is full transparency and consumers know exactly how the products they are buying are being created. This would not only help with transparency but accountability as well
Message to non-sustainable/ethical brands? Be the change. But just as importantly, consumers have the power to ‘vote’ for important values with their dollar
Other passions: Climate change, natural hazards, #zerowaste , environmental protection and urban design
Swimwear life: At the beach, lake and pool. I love a good beach bikini, but I also need a comfy one-piece or sports bikini to train in
Dream swimwear location: The Greek Islands, and I hope to be heading there in the not-so-distant future!
