Yves Behar for Issey Miyake Watches: The Man Who Designed The OLPC Give Us A New VUE On Time

by on Oct.11, 2010, under Review, What's New

Issey Miyake has a history of making some of the most interesting avant-garde watches around.  For this limited edition, Miyake turned to Yves Behar, the man responsible for designing the OLPC XO (One Laptop Per Child), and gave him free reign. 

With the VUE, Behar toys with the idea of time as a solitary unit.  In fact, at any given time, only one hour is fully displayed.  The hour before and after are just visible, and Behar says “VUE is a way to feel time’s appearance and disappearance in our lives.  By only seeing the current hour, while the last representing the past and the next representing the future subtely fade in and out, we can live a new view (VUE) of time.”

One of the most interesting design traits of the VUE is the box in which it comes.  It resembles a stack of sticky notes, that can be opened to reveal the watch.

No word on price or availability, but for more details on the Miyake by Behar VUE, click here.
