This is one of the collaborative pieces designed with artist/engineer Dan Morrison of BLOTT WORKS and is intended as a retro-futuristic take on a desk clock, created for lovers of all things aeronautical and vehicular.
'The Wing' celebrates the simple beauty (and apparent magic) of an aerofoil profile. This pure form has been used as the basis for the aluminium body that houses the Nixie electronics. The resulting wing-shaped body has then been raised up on two aeroframe-style legs shaped to give the impression of imminent flight.
Currently available in two versions - one with a stylised jet engine, one with an airbrake style flap, each mounted above the wing. Other options in the pipeline (or wind tunnel).
Handmade from aluminium and (fumed) oak and available in different finishes including copper, wood veneer and leather.
This clock features six Z566M or ZM1040 Nixie tubes giving HH:MM:SS and can be configured to display the date at specific intervals. There is an alarm clock function and a variety of adjustable parameters to control the display appearance. The tubes are good for 20 years of operation before needing replacement.
Limited edition of 25.
