Two collections of clocks to be showcased in London in January.
Sotheby’s London will host a selling exhibition of clocks designed by Daniel Weil of independent design consultancy Pentagram, called Making Time, in January.
The exhibition will feature two collections of clocks designed by Weil 17 years apart – his Time for All series from 1994 and a new collection called A Matter of Time that has never been seen before.
Time for All is a series of clocks based on wooden tree trunks while A Matter of Time is a run of one-off deigns made from nickel-plated brass and steel.
Making Time curator Janice Blackburn said: “I regard Daniel Weil as one of the most innovative and distinctive designers working in Britain today. The two collections showcased in Making Time offer a unique insight into the development of Weil’s career and his preoccupations with technology and the conceptual notions of time. I am delighted, in conjunction with Sotheby’s, to offer collectors the first opportunity to purchase these wonderful pieces.”
The selling exhibition will take place at Sotheby’s on London’s Bond Street from January 9 to 13.
