“Nooka is the brainchild of artist and designer, Matthew Waldman. In 1997, Matthew had a flash-back to a first grade math class while staring at a large wall clock in a London hotel and was struck by how few options there were for time display. He then sketched his ideas for potential designs on a napkin and brought them back to New York. After working on the designs, he submitted them to his legal team, and indeed, they were unique enough to patent!
The linear and graphic representation of time with Nooka timepieces presents a more intuitive way to view time. The visual mass increases as time passes, giving weight to an ephemeral and abstract concept – creating a universal visual language.
Rather than just style the appearance of an object, Nooka’s reconceptualization is based on analytic and artistic underpinnings that incorporate trends in fashion and science. The approach is beyond any material product – it is a concept, a method, a mindstyleTM.
Beyond international style, the search for a universal language is the common theme that all nooka products are conceptually based, whether a timepiece, fashion, or something unexpected. look for more from Nooka in 2009!
Nooka Inc. is based in New York City with an office in Tokyo Japan.”
