“hu”… simply means human.
a clear and pure statement embodied in a timepiece for issey miyake. it truly is a creative bonding and all my life long feelings about watches as prosthetic extension of the body, the concept of anatomical contouring and the organics sculptural possibilities of materials that integrate into one single skin. --Ross Lovegrove

The newest watch from Issey Miyake, the Hu watch designed by Ross Lovegrove:

The organic shaped wristwatch, made of titanium and silicon materials, gently holds and melds into your wrist. The dial as a slight slope on a 25º angle to the right, which makes the dial naturally and easily viewable.
