Base Clock



The shape of this ceramic masterpiece was inspired by industrial production archetypes. The Base is handmade by Cor Unum, a ceramic art center based in the Netherlands.

Designer duo Kranen/Gille initially created the base clock because they believe every designer needs a timepiece in their portfolio, even though they agree with LEFF amsterdam that nobody really needs a clock. The design of the base clock was inspired by a visual language the designers developed by gathering industrial production archetypes. They took industrially determined shapes and details, and used these characteristics to create a new shape. Since the shape is unique, yet recognizable, the design is open to interpretation. Everyone sees something else, which, to Kranen/Gille, is the definition of a good design.
