The Artling recently released its latest project, Then Now and Beyond, an exhibition of limited edition art and design pieces by some of the leading figures in the fields of contemporary art and design, commissioned on the occasion of The Hour Glass' 40th Anniversary. One of the highlights among the various timekeeping objects, nendo's Cubic Clock aims to "blur the lines between art, design, and watches".
A clock that is designed in the shape of a slanted cube thanks to a sliced-off vertex that allows the clock to balance on its corner. The long and the short hands overlap one another 22 times throughout the day, but only at noon and midnight they will meet in the vertical-upright position and will complete the cube’s shape as if time is reset after completing a twelve-hour cycle. The functionality of the clock is created by removing and cutting elements of the cube, rather than adding unnecessary parts and materials, resulting in a clock that reveals it’s true form, only twice in a day.
