One swallow may not make a summer, but how about twelve? After their stunning Merry-go-round Clock that we featured back in 2010, Haoshi Design Studio’s latest creation The Swallow Clock takes decorative timepieces to new flying heights.
Haoshi Design Studio was established in 2009 by two Taiwan-based designers who fervently believe that life is full of joyful and interesting things. Their intention was to spread their optimistic attitude towards life (in fact, their name actually means ”Good things” in Chinese) and express it through their design concepts by adding a dash of purity and peace in their creations, and by extension, into our lives.
In building on this premise, the idea for The Swallow Clock was born. The clock itself is a sculptural piece where a flock of twelve delicate flying swallows which are handmade out of resin, replace numbers in a Taiwanese movement clock measuring 600mm X 120mm X 600mm. Mounted on the wall, the swallows appear to fly independently at various heights around the clock nest, as if following the course of time.
