“Inspired by traditional diamond faceting geometry, each clock is cast in our studio using our own specially-formulated concrete mix and polished by hand. Due to the nature of the concrete and finishing methods, each clock is unique, just like the diamonds they are inspired by.
The Cairo Star Cut Clock is powered by a Seiko quartz clock mechanism, specifically chosen for their exceptional quality. Looks can be deceiving, with a concrete wall thickness of just 10mm, the clock is designed to be ultra-light. It also features a translucent-neon back plate that captures ambient light to give the effect of illumination.
The wood version is still a work in progress. Prototype is beeswaxed mahogany with a translucent orange acrylic backing.” thendc.ca
