TM1 & 2 – The first Time Machine

The first generation of Time Machines TM1 was created with the goal of showing that time is much more than positions of minute and hour hands. Time as a continuum, time as something discoverable with our senses, audible, visible, a thing that inspires wonder. Our goal was to create a sense of timeless eternity in a room through the sound of the machine
and the meditative swing of the pendulum.

The second generation, called TM2, is equipped with an elegant, simple, and shapely minute and hour indicator,
with a rotating minute hand a ring gear with an integrated hour marker. timemachine.tm2.copper timemachine.tm2.nickel
