About The Artwork

Solstice is a timepiece that turns passing hours into a moving artwork. It gradually changes shape throughout the day to inspire a more relaxed view of time. For many, time and a need for absolute accuracy has become a source of stress. Solstice is a timepiece that encourages those around it to slow down and enjoy the moment. It takes inspiration from the movement of the sun in the sky and the opening and closing of flowers. Unlike traditional clocks, Solstice displays time through shape and pattern, much like a sundial. Gradually opening and closing over a 12 hour period, the clock’s movement follows that of the sun. At midday, when the sun is higher in the sky the clock is at its largest. At 6pm, when the sun is lower the clock is at its smallest. For those that want to see the clock move more quickly, Solstice also has a mode whereby it completes one rotation every 60 seconds. To switch between this and the clock mode there is an easy to use touch sensor on the bottom rail of the clock. One tap to switch Solstice into demonstration mode and another to return to showing the time. Solstice is not only an engineering feat in terms of its motion, but also in terms of the quality of its construction. The materials have been chosen based on their longevity and strength. The central body of the clock is machined from a single piece of aluminium, making it both durable and beautiful. The wood is a beautiful and unique veneer panel and every clock is hand assembled to ensure the highest quality. Solstice (version 2) is part of a limited series of 200 pieces
