Projects Red Suprematism Watch by Denis Guidone

Item# P7296RS


The Suprematism Watch by Denis Guidone  is a new “concept watch from Projects. The name is derived from the Suprematism movement, the invention of Russian artist Kazimir Malevich. Malevich’s believed that Suprematist art would be superior to all art of the past, and would lead to the “supremacy of pure feeling or perception in the pictorial arts.” Heavily influenced by avant-garde poets, and an emerging movement in literary criticism, Malevich explored his interest in flouting the rules of language, and in defying reason. He believed that there were only delicate links between words or signs and the objects they denote, and from this he saw the possibilities for a totally abstract art. And just as the poets and literary critics were interested in deconstructing literary language, Malevich was intrigued by the search for art’s barest essentials. Although the Communist authorities later attacked the movement, its influence was pervasive in Russia in the early 1920s. The movement was pivotal in shaping Constructivism, and continues to inspire abstract art to this day.

In his homage to this art movement, designer Denis Guidone’s Suprematism watch frames continual compositional changes with each passing second. The hour is the gray hand, the minute is the black hand and the red second hand disc rotates around the watch every 60 seconds.

The Suprematism watch is made of black IPB stainless steel with a black silicone band, and utilizes a high quality Japanese movement.  The perfect unisex-size case measures 37mm. The watch measures 9.5” from end to end; to 6.5″ at the closest hole and 8.5″ inches from the farthest hole.
