Yup, I got me a Cultivate About Time rolling clock. It came in the mail this week, a complete surprise. Buro Vormkrijgers designers Dave and Sander sent me the freshly minted anodized aluminum poetry in motion. The rolling clock tells the time with a long continuous sentence Ã¢â¬Åitâs about six oâclockÃ¢â¬Â or Ã¢â¬Åalmost seven nowÃ¢â¬Â as it literally rolls around your desk. First things first, I popped the lid. The mechanism inside that makes the clock turn is surprisingly simple and elegant, instead of clock hands turning, the Ã¢â¬ÅhandsÃ¢â¬Â are fixed and the clock itself turns on the inside thus shifting its weight and turning the clock. Very cool. Thanks Sander, Dave!
Black anodized brushed aluminum smudges easily…
… it’s also surprisingly light.
