Cast in time

Cast in time
At first glance, the fourth dimension Concrete Clock is another chic, industrial style timepiece.

However, anyone checking the time is invited to look not just at the hands but at the shadows cast by the levels as they change with the time of day.

Harking back to the functionality of the shadow and shape of a sundial, the Concrete Clock’s use of space sets it apart from other clocks.

The deceptively simple looking clock uses multiple levels that fan out from its centre to create the divides that represent the hours.

As the name suggests, the design intends to reunite the ideas of time and space. Beautiful and functional as well as food for thought.
