CTRLZAK presents a contemporary take on the traditional hourglass

Among the first instruments that man perceived to measure time, the milan-based collective’s apparent hourglass utilizes the properties of traditional materials in reviewing this almost obsolete object. A mouth-blown borosilicate glass vessel provides transparency, while refined iron fillings trickle from one compartment to another. The contemporary design reveals the passage of time not only through movement, but through the creation of a small crystalline structure — revealing that time is not only obvious to the observer as a continuous motion, but through materials which can help visualize and make its passing something physical. Secondome is also showcasing pieces produced with padiglione italia, and the final pieces of the ‘from-to’ collection organized by martino gamper for valore artigiano.

The contribution of CTRLZAK to the bustling area also sees them proposing a reflection on the world of bees, and the need for them to be protected for man and the environment in which we live within the giardino del terraggio.
