Manifold Clock Makes Art out of Time
January 24th, 2012
The only thing that’s constant in this world is change. Thus, it makes sense that even something that’s used to tell the time isn’t constant in itself. In this case, it’s the Manifold Clock.
These quirky timepieces will display the time as an constantly evolving artwork on your wall. The fact that it does so with bright, lively, and vibrant displays is just one of the major features of its design.
Both hands of the clock are connected with a flexible surface made from Tyvek. The movements of the clock are based on the mathematical notion of Riemann surfaces, including the log(z) function.
The Manifold Clock is a Product Design project from Studio Ve, that’s based in Tel Aviv, Israel. The project is currently up on Kickstarter, where almost half of the $15,000 has been reached by interested contributors, with about 1 month to go. If you’re interested in getting one of these gorgeous clocks for yourself, then a minimum pledge of $45 is needed.
