Marc Newsom's Limited Edition Hourglasses For Ikepod.
Designer Marc Newsom first unveiled his stunning modern hourglass for Ikepod at last year's Baselworld. The hourglass was created in 2 models, the HGS20 and HGS80. Both are made of Borosilicate glass and measure 300 x 250 mm. Weighing 9.6 kg. the sand is made of stainless steel nickel nanoballs while in the HGS80, it is made of actual gold-plated nanoballs.
You'd be hard-pressed to find a more elegant way to keep track of time.
The HGS20 -the stainless steel nanonball version- will soon be available for purchase at Colette
