Vario is a microbrand based in Singapore that was founded by Ivan Chua in 2016. Initially, Chua started as a strap designer with the goal of introducing entertaining and distinctive patterns to the market. Through crowdfunding, he has launched several successful Kickstarter campaigns, including his own watch designs.
