dutch design studio tjep (frank tjepkema) are displaying their project ‘clockwork snow’ within the christmas windows at la rinascente in milan. the piece appears as a grouping of mechanical gears that seem to drop from heaven like icy snowflakes, crystallizing into a magical machine frozen in time. the gears represent our rational world, but here they transcend the purely utilitarian, becoming a romantic, haunting dream.

  • I LOVE this. I’d display it in my lottery-sourced home in a split second.
