SPACE LUDENS by KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS × NASA × ANICORN WATCHES
The correlation of Time, Space and Homo Ludens
Teaming up with the most distinguished game creator Hideo Kojima and remarkable space agency NASA, ANICORN is honored to present the once in a lifetime collaboration timepiece – SPACE LUDENS, an epic partnership that is inspired by Ludens to proclaim creativity, imagination and the play element in culture.
Ludens is the KOJIMA PRODUCTION studio icon and mascot designed by Yoji Shinkawa that was originally born from the idea of an astronaut exploring a digital space.
ANICORN designed SPACE LUDENS with KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS using the NASA logo as one of the design motifs, it is a perfect alignment with the concept of “bringing fun into the unknown universe”. The timepiece is fundamentally induced by the Ludens EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity) Creative Suit.
We are Homo Ludens. We are those who Play.
