Gaio / watches


This wrist-watch project tried to exploit estetic and funcional possibilities offered by technologies like electronic paper (e-paper) and GPS (global positioning system). The project resulted in a Design which makes a beautiful synthesis of form-function, besides offering an additional and important information related to Time – an elegant information design to the sunlight system of a specific location. This design helps to create a link between people and places, since this information changes according to each location and period of the year, escaping that way from the increased virtuality of new technologies.
