Alexander Shorokhoff: Hand Finished Timepieces

The latest limited edition Avantgarde piece, the Plus Minus, is limited to 168 pieces.

 
 
 

Alexander Shorokhoff timepieces are unique in the world of watchmaking. German-made, with Swiss and Russian movements, they are financially accessible yet limited in production. They were conceived by a Russian engineer with a passion for product design and watches.

Alexander Shorokhov was born in Moscow and, as a boy, nurtured an interest in and talent for engineering, drawing and design. He completed his engineering studies in Moscow with distinction, and went on to work at a prominent construction company in Moscow, where he became chief engineer and later, a director of the company. In the early ’90s, he attended a course in economics organized by the Ministry of Economics of the Hessen region in Germany. In 1992, he founded a marketing company in order to sell and market the Russian watch brand Poljot. In 1995, he launched his first own watch brand Poljot-International, followed in 2003 by the establishment of his signature premium label Alexander Shorokhoff, based in Alzenau, Geromany.

Frank Gehry

The exterior of the Louis Vuitton Foundation inParis.
The building was designed by Gehry.

 

Los Angeles, Frank Gehry’s home for nearly seven decades, has been a source of inspiration and a frequent canvas choice for the architect’s work. Gehry, born Frank Goldberg, moved to Los Angeles with his family when he was 18 and later studied at the University of Southern California, earning a degree in architecture in 1954. He opened his office in Los Angeles in 1962 and his firm was known for the unique residences it designed, including Gehry’s own house. He later found worldwide success in the late 1980s after designing prominent buildings in Europe and in 1989 winning the Pritzker Prize, the top award in the field.  His reputation as a world-renown architect was further solidified in 1997 when his Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, with its abstract curved steel exterior, debuted to widespread acclaim. Over the next two decades, Gehry and his firm were in high demand, working on everything from a 76-story skyscraper in New York to a performing arts venue in Chicago, an art gallery in London, and the highly regarded concert hall in Los Angeles.

The philosophy is that better and now are both infinite, and that there is always a next ‘better’ and a new ‘now’ in which to start pursuing it.
