‘the lithe clock’ by studiove



tel-aviv-based studiove has designed a wall mounted clock with hands longer than an arm, but yet thin and subtle. the flexion of the steel gives the indicator a surprising vibrancy. placed on a delicate ceramic base, the piece brings out an elegant appearance of time. the ‘lithe clock’ presents a new appearance of time – with a smooth and soft flow it resembles a dance – as they rise and wilt, turn and bend.


‘the lithe clock’ is now seeking funding on kickstarter.

  • which end of the hands indicates the time?

    The shorter ends with the counter weights is bigger visually and easier to read.

    But the long ends are more dramatic and yet harder to read.

    Since there are two hands, I assume one is the hour and one the minute. Why no second hand?
