Vase Clock Is Designed To Break When The Right Moment Comes

Vase Clock Is Designed To Break When The Right Moment Comes

When Georgios Maridakis’ product breaks it’s actually an intentional feature. His Clock Vase indicates time with a little hammer that knocks against the porcelain. And at the right stroke, it shatters.

There aren’t any notes on how long it would take to wear out a vase on average, but the entire idea is to have different chime sounds due to switching the flower pots so it can’t be too long. I just hope Georgios never decides to make an alarm clock like this, because just imagining the porcelain shards near a bed makes my feet hurt. [The Design Blog]
