ABOUT VOID WATCHES
VOID Watches is an independent boutique watch brand launched in 2008 as the single vision of Swedish designer David Ericsson.
VOID Watches has a unique take on watch design using simple yet expressive shapes, giving our watches an almost architectural expression. Just like a great building is designed to fit its environment, all VOID Watches are made to sit perfectly on your wrist.
The design draws heavily on the Scandinavian design tradition using simple geometries and materials often found in architecture. Our design philosophy is to create unique products using as simple geometries as possible and bring them to life by using honest, traditional materials.
In astronomy, voids are the empty spaces between filaments, the largest-scale structures in the Universe, that contain very few, or no, galaxies. Voids typically have a diameter of 40 to 500 million light years, so large that we can not even begin to grasp their vastness. In this they are similar to the concept of time, it’s something that is always there but not to be seen or touched, only to be measured.
David Ericsson (b 1977 in Sweden) has always been fascinated with the process of creating products, from idea to delivery to the end user. After graduating as an engineer from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, he started to work for one of Sweden’s largest industrial design firms, where he gradually shifted his attention towards design. With a technical background, his design approach is often to keep things as simple as possible, but with a unique twist.
