Marco Galloway is photographer and furniture maker based in Brooklyn, New York. A Glasgow native and long time friend of the studio, we sat down with him to discuss his work and inspiration, and how the two disciplines he specialises in can correlate and inform each other.
The Field watch has a semi-transparent dial which allows around 30% of light to travel through the dial to the solar cell beneath. This cell converts any form of light* into electrical energy and stores the power in a secondary rechargeable battery.
Back in 2019, after five years of shipping our watches in a Fedrigoni paper box with a foam insert (the layout of which became quite ubiquitous with our 01-Series), we decided we had to make a change. Now we've done it again.
The quality of materials we use is of paramount importance to us as a studio. Many hours are spent researching and sourcing samples of new material innovations discovering off-the-grid, old-world manufacturers.
A collaborative project initiated by Innis & Gunn that challenged Instrmnt to create a unique product inspired by The Original barrel-aging process.
Each year, we commission a series of ‘mid-season’ photography campaigns. They are never specifically commercial in nature, but provide a chance for us to step away from the daily responsibilities of running a product design studio, to work with friends, and to visit interesting locations. For our latest campaign, location was the driving factor. Through fortunate circumstances, we found ourselves with unique access to one of our favourite buildings - Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House - while it lives under the protective shell of The Box: an extraordinary, urgently needed solution to serious water damage affecting the listed building.
Over the past few years we have been trying to focus carefully on the waste we produce as a company and examine where this can be either eradicated, or at the very least, reduced.
