Regular price $248.00

“Oscilloglass” is a mechanical hourglass that activates once flipped over. Each of the components sealed inside the glass cylinder is slowly pulled to the bottom of the glass due to the force of Earth's gravity. The falling speed is controlled by the same principle as a mechanical clock, slowly descending until it eventually stops.

It is a unique device that not only functions to measure time, but also allows the user to feel the flow of time through movement, sound, and vibrations like a faint heartbeat. In addition, it is designed to be minimalist to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of the mechanical clock construction itself, made available to be viewed from various angles of 360 degrees. When you have the chance, please take a close look at the series of movements that are beautifully linked by the coordination of each component. Then pick it up and flip it over to feel the intricate ticking rhythm closely resembling the soft heartbeats of a living creature.

There are two types: a tall "5 minutes" version and a short "3 minutes" version. Just like an hourglass, you can enjoy the passage of time according to your needs.
