Drawing inspiration from Orphic Cubism pioneer Robert Delaunay, Ode To Delaunay, from famed architect Moshe Safdie, alludes to its namesake and the artistic movement he's known for by putting an emphasis on bold colors and geometric shapes. Featuring a simplified numeral outline mixed with an audacious composition, this timepiece blends chaos with constitution in a beautiful way.

Details

Over his 50-year career, architect, urban planner and author Moshe Safdie has explored the essential principles of socially responsible design through a comprehensive and humane design philosophy. In constant search for technological innovation, Safdie's commitment to geographic and cultural elements that define a place have made him an important figure in architecture throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. After founding his own firm in 1964, Safdie set out to realize Habitat ‘67, an adaption of his undergraduate thesis that was a model community and housing complex in Montreal, Quebec, Canada that is widely considered an architectural landmark and one of the most recognizable buildings in Canada.

An American, Israeli and Canadian citizen, Safdie’s work can be found all over the world, ranging from mixed-use urban centers and airports to neighborhoods and public parks. Among Safdie’s long list of achievements, he has received the Gold medal from the American institute of Architects, the Genius Award from the Liberty Science Center and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Design Futures Council and is regarded as a major inspiration for generations of architects through his thought leadership and exemplary projects throughout his career.
