Wall Clock #marble
What can you get from 40 x 40 cm marble tiles discarded in dusty warehouses? What can you make by cutting them with a water-jet machine and then assembling the pieces without creating any waste? Italian designers Paolo Ulian and Moreno Ratti experimented with these questions and created seven new objects in which the ethical implications underlying the production process have the same relevance as form and function.
The Quadrondo Wall Clock was designed in 2013 and is made from a reclaimed marble tile. The tile has been cut by a waterjet machine and allows the user to choose to transform the clock shape from square to round by breaking off the precut parts.
