So here is another example of very close design(of mine and my friend Nenad Merzel) and a design that popped up on the net...
With this clock we wanted to apply for a Designboom competition around New Year's but in the end we gave up, for no apparent reason!(lazy/stupid us!!) we wanted to evoke a nostalgic emotion with a redesign of a beloved grandfather clock, and the examples above(on top) are what we came up with!
And the pics below are of a very cool Zwilling clock by Christian Kim. The resemblance is there! and not just because they're both pendulum clocks.
Would be cool to hear some comments!
