Breathing Clock

The Breathing Clock was first developed by Andy Plant as part of a collection of large animated clocks designed in collaboration with automata maker and cartoonist Tim Hunkin. It is now available as part of our product collection.

The outer rings on this delightful clock move gently in and out, giving the impression that the clock is breathing. The speed of this breathing can be adjusted from a very relaxed and sedate slow setting to something a bit more lively and upbeat. Have a look at the video below.

The clock shown is a prototype of a wall mounted version - a smaller table mounted version is also available. We are currently revisiting the design of this clock and are very happy to talk to you if you have a specific location in mind.
