London based designers Joe Wentworth and Samuel Wilkinson have developed a new take on the pendular clock. As many of you may remember, Wilkinson designed the wildly popular Plumen bulb which we debuted in the United States at Hand-Eye Supply.
"Pendola," their contemporary take on the classic grandfather clock is rather technically complicated—the outcome, however, looks very simple. The clock convincingly meets their design objective of creating something that counteracts the busy lifestyle of our current times. It was part of the Slow Tech: Designs for Digital Downtime exhibition curated by Protein and Henrietta Thompson (Wallpaper Magazine) for London Design Festival. Check out our exclusive video with the designers explaining more about the design of the "Pendola" clock.
