This mantel clock is a reinterpretation of the preceding Felt wall clock; the different approach of function, material and shape leads to an iconic clock that can stand on its own. When closely viewed, the texture of the pressed felt becomes visibly apparent as a perfect match with the wood structure of the bamboo back cover. The laser engraving on the bamboo enhances the material, proving that modern technology can still invoke a sense of fine craftsmanship. A standing clock designed to enjoy from every angle.
Sebastian Herkner: “Responsibility is a big topic in my work and my process of product design. At the beginning is always the question of need. Material, craftsmanship and technology are important considerations when creating solutions which don’t respond to trends, but rely on usability and sustainability.”
