maarten baas: just about now sand timer for laikingland

‘just about now’ by maarten baas with laikingland oak, glass, ceramic, sand, brass

dutch designer maarten baas has sent us images of his ‘just about now’ sand timer for UK and netherlands-based studio laikingland. the contraption is an adjustable sand-timer made from oak, glass, ceramic, brass and of course, sand. the idea behind the design is that exact time is irrelevant, a coffee break, a nap or even a business meeting could take a few minutes longer or shorter than expected. this notion is communicated by the sounding of a gong determined by a clock that itself is not so precise.
