Italian Designs Play Upon the Notion of Time

View all 8 Photos

Created by Sovrappensiero Design Studio for Incipit Lab, this trio of designs plays upon the notion of time. The Roll is calendar that hangs on a beech wood spool. The oversize design comes in earthy colors of green, blue, and taupe. Artico, on the other hand, is a set of two ceramic containers, one finished in black and the other in white. The origami-esque decoration atop the dish reflects on the mirror like the shadow of a sundial. Last but not least, the Clip is a clip-on clock that draws inspiration from the Latin phrase Tempus fugit, typically translated to mean “time flies.” The tactile design has a soft face and sleek two-hand movement, gently contrasting texture. Altogether, the three designs are a powerful Italian collaboration and exploration of time in contemporary spaces.
