Tooth of Time

iF concept design award 2014

iF concept design award 2014

This concept exemplifies what a clock does in the first place. It’s all about the transmission of energy and the information obtained from it. A clock without this kind of translation would be impossible. So I designed a new type of time display. The entire clock is made of aluminum. A mechanical clockwork serves as the basis, so it is completely autonomous and does not require a battery. The clock can be put on a table or the wall. The complete clock was built in solid materials and is thus reproducible. Before my studies, I completed an apprenticeship as a master watchmaker. This project would not have been possible without that training.

I feel really honored and pleased that my work has been recognized by such a prestigious award.
