‘eternal’ by shinobu koizumi

japanese designer shinobu koizumi has created ‘eternal’, a stone chair with 16 ticking clocks. koizumi’s work speaks to the notion of consistency in a world which is in a constant state of change and decay. ‘eternal’ is designed to function as an immortal chair, its organic shape detailed by small pieces of granite and epoxy resin decorated by 16 embedded clocks, all of which glow in the dark. rather than being clocks which display time in an easily discernible manner, the timepieces possess only a second hand to emphasize the passage of time.
