AÃRK Collective is a team of four Melbourne-based creatives linked by family and a love of design.
Their influences are diverse but they share a desire to make objects that are lasting and unique. They are focused on simple forms, obsessed with tiny details and inspired by the challenge of balancing function and beauty in wearable design. Most of all, AÃRK Collective loves sharing their work with likeminded people.
AÃRK Collective’ s approach to design is considered and organic. They understand that creating a simple form can be deceptively challenging.
Geometry and playful detail inform their aesthetic, but each AÃRK design is underpinned by an uncomplicated love of minimalism. Although it’s never marked on the products, AÃRK hopes that their brand is expressed across the collections, and in each watch’s originality, simplicity and refined detail.
From precision Swiss and Japanese Quartz movements to hand-dipped casings and soft Horween Leather straps, they choose and customise the highest quality components for each AÃRK timepiece.
Combining the values of traditional craftsmanship with the best contemporary manufacturing techniques, each of the watches is made with care and made to last. Quality is often tied to beauty but they put just as much thought into the parts that most people won’t see. They are not yet sure if this is a gift or a curse—but they do know it’s all for your enjoyment.
They are AÃRK Collective.
