art du temps wall clock

This is really a unique and extraordinary wall clock by illi, Art du Temps has such beautiful and sleek design that is sure to be a conversational piece.

Designed by illi and Julien Ado for another firm called designby8, the Art du Temps starts with a rectangular board with a lot of “articulating” squares on it. When in passive mode, some of these squares randomly move up and down “beating” to indicate the passing of the seconds. To see the time you “ask” it to show the time. I think this can be done remotely, or via voice command. Then, in a science fiction like ballet, the squares move around, out of the way to display a digital clock, but one that uses physical pieces. This is called “mechanical digital hours.
