Designer: Joel Escalona
Inspired by Euclid, the Tangency Watch comes to life with the idea that any stable figure begins with a strong foundation. The beauty of the this timepiece resides in its unconventional and geometrically diverse design.
Tangency is a small geometrical show. On the dial, one disc seems to revolve around a different center from the hour and minute hands; as insignificant as seconds might seem, they are the protagonists of this timepiece. Curious by nature and eager for innovation, designer Joel Escalona manages to convert mundane activities into delightful experiences.
Tangency is the first design Joel Escalona has done for Projects Watches. Listed as one of the 200 best Mexican designers in the “De la creatividad a la Innovación – 200 Diseñadores Mexicanos”, Escalona has been included in specialized books in China, London, Spain, Mexico and France, and has also been introduced as one of “the new wave of young designers to watch for in the world” by Wallpaper* magazine. Also selected as one of the “50 Emergent Talents of the Americas” by Arquine magazine and published in GQ’s extraordinary young people feature, his work has been displayed in leading magazines and publication covers, making him a Mexican contemporary designer who has nowadays become creative and business director of NONO design company, as well as co-founder and active member of Cooperativa Panorámica, a group of young Mexican designers exploring new design territories.
When looking at the time is not simply a mundane activity but a delightful experience…
