Michael Graves

Mado Watch - 2017 GOOD DESIGN Award

$139

Mado 窓, the Japanese word for “window,” is a fitting name for this timepiece designed with architect Michael Graves that represents the idea of seeing something that was previously unseeable. Though its color scheme of silver and black is reminiscent of archetypical watches, Mado’s composition—a literal square peg in a round hole—communicates a sense of individuality yearning to be expressed.

Having received the American Prize for Architecture, the National Medal of Arts and the Driehaus Architecture Prize, Graves has been recognized as a major influence on major architectural movements including New urbanism, New Classicism and Postmodernism as well as being described as “one of the most prominent and prolific American architects of the latter 20th century” by the New York Times.
