"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.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
