A clock that uses two hands sliced from its solid form to convey the time.
Only twice a day at 12am and 12pm do the two hands neatly overlap in the vertical orientation.
In this position the form is united as one solid cube, as if reset, from this point the clocks hands move forward giving the impression of a reset of the mind.
By using the form of a cube and cutting away into it, not adding any elements, a clock is produced that shows its original appearance only twice a day.
Visit Then Now Beyond to view the cubic clock up-close.

Oki Sato And The Work Of nendo
There is a certain dynamic tranquillity about the work of nendo – Oki Sato’s esteemed Tokyo and Milan-based design firm. Their projects are thoroughly contemporary executions of clean, crisp and refined design with a touch of eccentricity and a delightfully playful spirit. With a portfolio that encompasses the disciplines of architecture, product design, interior design and art installation, there are few places were nendo dares not to venture.
