Sculptural Wall Clock by Daniel Libeskind
Time Maze, designed by Daniel Libenskind for Alessi, is a wall clock whose body consists of a red polyline. The design of the wall clock explicitly recalls the architectural language of its author which is characterised by discontinuous lines, split surfaces, cuts and holes. The mechanism of the clock is located in the centre of the structure, formed by the red line.
"Labyrinth of Time"
The idea behind the design of the sculptural clock is the one of the "labyrinth of the time". Therefore, says Libeskind, time never flows in circles but in unexpected corners and edges. The shape of the Maze Wall Clock takes up this idea with its deconstructivist inspired design. The timestamps are molded into the steel struts of the clock, so that - in spite of the elaborated design - time can be read as usual.
