The DNA Bench by True Design

Leonardo Rossano of True Design together with Debora Mansur created a bench called DNA. “Inspired by the dynamic forms of biogenetics, the modular bench DNA consists in a unique construction assembly which is created by a single section of curved plywood, that is mirrored in design to create multiple seating configurations. The result of this system, is a captivating piece of furniture, shaped after the helix form, in which each completed section creates an individual seat for the user creating comfort in a public space.”

The Romain Jerome’s “Tattoo-DNA” Collection

Romain Jerome’s “DNA” watches have been inspired by fascinating events and achievements from human history, regardless of whether they happened on land, at sea or in the skies. For the new “Tattoo-DNA” collection they spiced up this idea with a unique collaboration, as the brand worked together with Mo Coppoletta, founder of world-famous London-based tattoo studio The Family Business. The Tattoo-DNA collection will consist of four models, each issued in a limited series of only 25-pieces. All of them will be dressed in typical Romain Jerome fashion. That means a 50mm stainless steel case with four “paws” and a black PVD-coated, oxidized bezel that provides a rugged, ‘used’ look to the watch. Of the 100 watches in total, 50 will have black PVD-coating on the four “paws”, the crown and the lugs and these will come on a black fabric strap. The other fifty will have more bare stainless steel elements and a skin-colored leather strap, tattooed by the artist himself. The movement inside is the self-winding RJ001-A (basically an ETA 7750 with no chronograph or date function), beating at 28,800 with 42 hours of power reserve.
