I wish that time could be looked at, and that it was more philosophical. Time is now so binary and we talk in minutes and seconds.
Two small spheres magically travel two concentric circles on the face of Marc Newson’s Mystery Clock. For this minimal but functional timepiece, Newson devised a system to magnetically move the markers and keep time. The clock was intended to be produced in an edition of 20 to be distributed by Idée. The present lot is one of approximately six known examples; another example can be found in the collection of the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences in Australia.
