the music of the spheres, orbits, and the straight lines of the horizon – the zirc face was up until now only available as part of our high-end stainless steel line. we have adapted the zirc face to the popular polyurethane zub body while introducing some great new colors evoking the sky, leaves and fruits of equatorial jungles.
the zirc is also the interface variation i designed as "nooka training wheel" as some people are intimidated by the zen h and zen v faces. the dots of the zirc occupy familiar points in space referencing an analog watch dial, while the minute bar is pure nooka.
i'd say the original zirc night version [all black] is a versatile elegant piece of jewelery and the new zub iteration is for sweaty raves or licking fruit juice off of people's bodies – so obviously you need both! get yours here! they ship february 10th [or slightly sooner]. the zirc nt is available here.
In response to the tragic events in Haiti, Nooka Inc. will donate 10% of all online purchases* between January 21st and February 21st to Architecture for Humanity. Although food aid is important, it is a temporary solution. A better Haiti must be structurally prepared to weather another earthquake or hurricane.
Architecture for Humanity is a nonprofit design services firm founded in 1999. They are building a more sustainable future through the power of professional design. Recently, Architecture for Humanity launched a fund-raising appeal to support long term reconstruction efforts in Haiti. learn more about them or make a direct donation here.
