Meters, by Berlin-based designers Patrick Kochlik and Monika Hoinkis, celebrates the joy of measuring for the sake of measuring. The pieces include a compass brooch and a bubble level that you wear as a watch, which is nice because everyone likes to know where they’re going while walking a level surface.

  • My only question is why are there two measuring devices where there could be one?

    Most compasses are liquid filled and with the appropriate design tweaks, they can be made to function as both a bubble level AND a compass.
