AÃRK Collective have collaborated with Adelaide-based design duo, Daniel Emma to create a unisex watch, Marble. Built on principles of simplicity and playfulness, this new range of marble-faced timepieces will appeal to any decadent minimalist who appreciates the melding of simple form and flawless function. Sparked by a mutual interest in uncomplicated design, the collaborative effort satisfies both teams desires to support local, like-minded creatives. Expanding on in-house design, the partnership has opened up the possibility for new ideas not only to permeate, but to be put into action.
Through a paralleled affinity with the purity of simple shapes, a common thread can be seen between both teams design values. As AÃRK Collective say, “Daniel Emma share a playful approach to design alongside a penchant for geometric form so it felt like a fitting marriage of ideals and aesthetic.”
The no-fuss undertone of the Marble watch reiterates Daniel Emma’s love of material as a base element to design. Using real marble in the dial, the natural beauty of the material comes to the fore, while the small features impart AÃRK’s obsession for detail. The Marble is available in two different finishes: Carrara (after the Italian town from which the marble has tradition- ally been taken) a white marble with an elegant grey strap and silver brushed stainless steel case, and Nero a black marble with a classic black leather strap and smooth PVD casing.
