Ostromir watches

Design of watches and accessories for a new brand, an homage to Russian
avantgarde art and late Soviet era wristwatch design.

The Watch


The Brand

The name of the brand was meant to combine the idea of tradition with that of the avant-garde. Ostromir is a real ancient name which nowadays sounds at once ancient and futuristic, if it hasn’t existed since about 800 AD, it could have been invented by some avant-garde poet. The graphics are meant to evoke Kandinsky’s abstractions and Malevich’s suprematist experiments.
