Description
Moon is a clock that hangs from the ceiling and was inspired by the geometric simplicity of the sphere.
It is suspended from a thin black metal wire that makes it appear light, like a moon floating harmoniously in space.
The clock shows the time in two different zones in black and white, colors representing night and day. The gesture of looking up to the sky refers to ancient techniques of reading time by means of celestial bodies such as the stars, the sun, and the moon, and raises questions about our contemporary relationship with nature.

Designed for Marsotto LAB as a part of the Sphere Collection and was generously donated to the Museum's collection by the company
