A bit of post-war brutalism, some Kraftwerk synth-pop and a Philip K. Dick retro-futuristic backdrop. For Kollokium projects, it’s not so much about defining a style, but about capturing and conveying a mood.
Some elements might seem familiar, though likely not things you would have encountered in a timepiece. It may appear simple enough on a first glance, but the closer you look, the more details begin to jump out at you. The textures. The depth. The contrast. The interplay of light and dark; of industrial and fantastical. The emphasis on graphics. The controlled chaos. If traditional watchmaking is a classical opera, Kollokium is a gritty sci-fi noir.
Kollokium was founded in 2020 by three friends. After having collectively spent a lifetime contributing to the creations (and creativity) of numerous watch brands, Manuel Emch, Barth Nussbaumer and Amr Sindi’s mutual desire to build something from scratch became too strong to ignore. To create with no established or inherited framework. No existing brand, no defined artistic direction, no rehashed history, no constraints. The freedom to truly, fully manifest objects they envision without the compromises of structure.
