Delay clock made of exposed cogwheels

Exposed precision gearwork and the insectile tick-click-tick of tine-on-tine countdowns are the design flourishes in this Delay clock from Studio Bloomm.

Delay is a stainless steel and aluminium clock designed by Bas van Leeuwen for Studio Bloomm. The clock is composed of three cogwheels: one for hours, one for minutes, and one for seconds. The time is shown at the spot where the three wheels come together. The idea behind Delay is that due to planned obsolescence, there is very little interest in the technology behind the objects that make up everyday living. Studio Bloomm hopes that Delay will spark some of that interest once again.
