Seattle, Washington, 2008. The Graypants design studio was founded by architects Jonathan Junker and Seth Grizzle (and joined later by close friend, Jon Gentry) as a way to get back to what they'd originally loved about architecture: design, drawing and making things by hand.
The belief of Essey, that function should be representative of natural form, is at the very core of the company and is at the heart of its design philosophy - Symbolic Functionalism. We design functional and beautiful products for everyday life, products that have soul and identity.
a.b.art Swiss Made is a watch brand for women and men who prefer un ostentatious design. a.b.art is different. a.b.art is authentic. We’re not about glitter and glamour but much rather about sophisticated beauty, low-key shapes and materials as well as high Swiss quality. a.b.art is an expression of the passion and care with which watches are being produced in this Swiss company day in and day out.
a.b.art – authentic and basic art.
