Timer for meditation / Product design

Timer for meditation

Timer for meditation is a kind of timer for meditation, which can visualise time while leading the user to control his own attention initiatively. We found that through meditation such as contemplation and autocriticism, we can partly relieve anxiety and fear that we have in this information era. The user rotates the spiral spring on the timer and puts it on the table. The graceful rotation of the circular cone and pyramid, and the tictoc of the pyramid knocking on the desktop will attract user's attention, and help him meditate in the short break, returning to the present and to the material reality.
