Martin Larsen was born in 1970 in Denmark and has a background in industrial design and mechanical engineering. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, he continued to work with various designers there before relocating to Copenhagen where he runs his own design studio.
Embracing his Scandinavian design roots, Martin Larsen is inspired by the potential of geometric forms. In his work he strives to explore the essence of materials and structures. With the range of watches for Danish Design Martin Larsen has designed simple yet sculptural timekeepers.
The Martin Larsen series are made from matted stainless steel with or without chronograph function. The watches are water resistant up to five atmosphere and covered with a mineral glass. The IQ12Q723 and IQ13Q723 have anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire glass and a polished stainless steel case. They have a water resistance of three atmosphere. A smaller edition of this watch will soon be launched onto the market so that females will be able to make the choice between the two models. Danish Design has won the Red Dot Design Award 2008. This award is a renowned distinction for high design quality. Model number IQ12Q723 was awarded this prestigious prize. The same model is also nominated for the Designpreis 2009.
