Designed around the meeting of two very different materials and the contrast between their volumes.
The CAPSULE Clock body is CNC machined from a single block of Portuguese cork. This dense, natural material is fronted with a volume of air for the hands, enclosed in German borosilicate laboratory glass. The full length second hand has a sweeping motion without incremental stops – a reminder of the nature of time.
The clock is packaged in an offcut of cork, a leftover from the machining process. Without repurposing as packaging this would be waste material.
