VOID Watches is an independent boutique watch brand launched in 2008 as the vision of Swedish designer David Ericsson. VOID Watches has a unique take on watch design using simple yet expressive shapes, giving our watches an almost architectural expression. Just like a great building is designed to fit its environment, all VOID Watches are made to sit perfectly on your wrist.
VOID Watches with their delicately proportioned half glass, half stainless steel front represents the intriguing forces within the dualities of life; the yin and the yang, the past and future, love and hate. The designer is inspired by the horizon – the line where the sky and the sea join, the coming together of the elements, that by its harmony of tone seems to lead to a reconciliation of opposites.
VOID - In astronomy, voids are the empty spaces between filaments, the largest-scale structures in the Universe, that contain very few, or no, galaxies. Voids typically have a diameter of 40 to 500 million light years. Time is a strange thing, it’s the most precious of commodities but we can’t see it, we can’t control it. We can only measure it – similar to the big empty spaces in space with nothing in them that are referred to as voids.
The design draws heavily on the Scandinavian design tradition using simple geometries and materials often found in architecture. The solid stainless steel case comes in various colours and surfaces, the watch has a mineral glass crystal and the strap is made of high quality leather. The inverted LCD-display set in its stainless steel frame in combination with the traditional leather strap creates an elegant contrast between the old and the contemporary, the technological and the organic.
Sophisticated, simple, beautiful, VOID Watches are an everyday luxury. The functions are in line with the design – simple and to the point, bringing something different to the conservative watch industry. The main objective has been to create a unique product using as simple geometries as possible and bring them to life by using honest, traditional materials.
