The Moss Clock

View all 4 Photos

Reindeer moss – named for the peculiar antlered mammals who eat it – finds its way inside your home on the face of this anti-industrial design by Noktuku. Though the Netherlandic studio primarily focuses on methods of CNC fabrication, their hand-made timepiece demonstrates an incredibly deep understanding of natural processes and traditional craftsmanship. The Moss Clock is as stunning as it is simple; made from nothing more than a steam-bent Baltic birch plywood with a single connection joint, the circular frame contains a careful selection of genuine Norwegian reindeer moss that serves to “bring nature into your home” and “make it the center of discussion.” Refined orange hands provide a pleasing contrast to the plant’s natural vibrance, which speaks both to the beauty of nature’s fertility as well as the fleeting nature of time through the incorporation of a living component to its measure. This charming hand-crafted clock helps to elevate the natural world and bring it closer to home.

While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
