This Thursday the 11th of May The Stables presents TID Canvas; a new collaborative platform where TID invited a selection of designers and artists to interpret the brands iconic No.1 watch, beginning with international design duo 'From Us With Love'. The designers transformed the canvas with their edition of TID Canvas 001, available now in a limited edition of 500 exclusively created watches.
We with caught up with the designers of TID to talk about their latest collaborative project and gain some insight into the creative process behind the designs.
You have created beautiful pieces , where do you draw inspiration from?
Inspirations comes from all over, trips, friends, other brands etc. To take the inspirations into products we have a lot of creative workshops, were we together trying to find out how we can design products that are strong but still simple and in some ways obvious.
How do you begin the design process?
All our design processes starts with a workshop were the full team is included.
How would you describe what you do?
Through products and creativity, we explore the notion of time. From the studio in Stockholm, we obsess over materials and the details of the products and we also see us as a canvas for artist and designers who we invite to explore time in different projects.
Your studio is based in Stockholm, can you tell us more about your neighborhood? Does your local area inspire your work?
The area around Vasastan is quite calm with great restaurants, cozy cafés and bars. Our neighbors are the creative Acne Archive and Our Legacy’s Workshop.
What’s on your bedside table?
I have a small Peperomia in a crock.
What is your favorite way to finish the day ideally? / how do you unwind?
Yesterday when I entered the door one baby tiger and a small unicorn was running towards me. My family help me to live in the present and unwind.
