Kazimir BLUE

$140.00

A watch inspired by Russian artist Kazimir Malevich and his creation of one of the earliest and most radical developments in abstract art. A true conversation piece for the wrist for the connoisseur of modern art, minimalist design, and cool watches!

Designer: Denis Guidone

We love this watch so much that it is our third color!  First with the yellow Kazimir Watch in 2015 followed by the red in 2017 and now blue!

Suprematism, the invention of Russian artist Kazimir Malevich, was one of the earliest and most radical developments in abstract art. Its name derived from Malevich’s belief that Suprematist art would be superior to all the art of the past, and that it would lead to the “supremacy of pure feeling or perception in the pictorial arts.” Heavily influenced by avant-garde poets, and an emerging movement in literary criticism, Malevich derived his interest in flouting the rules of language, in defying reason. He believed that there were only delicate links between words or signs and the objects they denote, and from this he saw the possibilities for a totally abstract art. And just as the poets and literary critics were interested in deconstructing the language of literature, Malevich came to be intrigued by the search for art’s barest essentials.

It was a radical and experimental project that at times came close to a strange mysticism. Although the Communist authorities later attacked the movement, its influence was pervasive in Russia in the early 1920s. The movement was pivotal in shaping Constructivism, and continues to inspire abstract art to this day. In homage to the art movement, the Blue Kazimir watch frames bold shapes and colors which continue shift composition with each passing second. The hour is the gray hand, the minute is the black hand and the blue second hand disc rotates around the watch every 60 seconds.

In his homage to the art movement, designer Denis Guidone’s Kazimir YELLOW watch frames bold shapes and colors which continue shift composition with each passing second. The hour is the gray hand, the minute is the black hand and the yellow second hand disc rotates around the watch every 60 seconds.

Denis Guidone

Denis Guidone, as student of architecture, design and visual communication studied urban planning and architecture in Milan, Italy and Oporto, Portugal. His project process was born under the concept of subtraction, an ideology that follows the unification of opposites through a constant approach on the edge of architecture and visual communication, and at the same time mediated by an expressive intensity that addresses work on the basis of subtraction. Fascinated by the passing of time, Guidone carries out this intense didactic work for several universities and design schools, in Italy and abroad. His many awards and honorable mentions include: Ida international design award in Los Angeles, IDOT Best Italian Design Product, and The Bruno Munari international award.

February 2018 Denis Guidone has been appointed Ambassador of Italian Design and Culture from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs  Farnesina and "la Triennale di Milano".
