All NOMOS employees in Berlin are connected by their creativity and love of good design. As well as mechanical watches!

The design studio is located in a former industrial loft from the early 1900s with ceiling-high windows, which on bright days flood the whitewashed walls with light. While desks, meeting rooms, and bookshelves have long since replaced the button-making machinery it once held, an air of industrious activity remains.

Small details reveal the open-plan office’s current purpose: a mosaic of multicolored Tetras covering a wall next to the entrance; the neon blue “Ahoi Glashütte” sign in the corridor, repurposed from NOMOS’ 2013 Baselworld stand; and the hanging lights in the form of giant paper clouds, designed by none other than Frank O. Gehry. The colleagues from Glashütte like to call them “the fair-weather clouds over Berlin.”
