Time is of the essence… of stylish design.

 

Timesphere Clock

If you like your timepieces to be simple yet still stand out on your wall, this Timesphere clock should fit the bill nicely. Originally released in 2002, this Museum of Modern Art clock created by Gideon Dagan is exquisitely minimalist, with a seemingly gravity-defying ball travelling around the dial in an eye-catching illusion. Made of injection-moulded ABS plastic, the clock features a high-torque, precision quartz movement.
US$60

4th Dimension Clock

With a concept representing a link of time and space, this wall clock is made of concrete, but its face is also a spiral staircase, representing the continuous march of time. The hands are on its top level, while light and shadows change as time does, making a very cool effect. A definite conversation piece!
US$275

IN-8-2 Blue Dream Nixie Clock

The result of a collaboration between Dieter Wächter and Claus Urbach, the IN-8-2 Blue Dream Nixie Clock is a kit that features Russian IN-8 tubes integrating a blue LED that illuminates the glass covering. This Nixie clock in a black brilliance case has cross-fade mode and can use either a GPS or a DCF77 receiver to set the time. The standard LED colour is blue, but many other colours are available.
US$184

The Bent Hands

Designed by Giha Woo and Shingoeun, this clock shows countries written inside concentric circles, with linked points on a spiralling arm indicating the time in different countries around the world. The idea behind the design is to show that the people of the world are moving simultaneously, even though they are living in slightly different time frames.

Fable Mantle Clock

This sculptural mantle clock features a classically shaped domed cage that frames a tranquil scene; the rotating tree moves with every second, gently swaying the swing as time passes by. The hour and minute hands rotate with the correct time passing through the viewing circles at the front. Each clock is made to order, with a lead time of approximately 3–6 weeks.
US$336 (small)
US$547 (large)
