- Where to Buy
Brutally honest and brutally simple, the Brut Watch by Maven is a timepiece inspired by the forms and structures associated with the architecture movement, Brutalism, that emerged in the 1950s. It is a product that balances the utmost form and function.
Inspired by the Brutalist movement and the thought process of many of its pioneers, Maven’s Brut watch shares many similarities with the idea in regards to its ideology and final form. Despite this seemingly harsh theme, the product contrasts this with its refined finish and function, two inherent characteristics of Maven. In the purest sense, if we’re talking about functionality and accessibility, there are clear parallels between this piece of design and the art form it transcends from.
As well as acting as an instrument to tell the time, it seeks to keep the values of Brutalism alive despite the ongoing demolition of such structures for what is deemed to be an unsightly appearance. Maven has done this in a number of ways, one of them being the prioritisation of showcasing the bare materials and structural elements over decorative design.
