In Brief

The creation of Marc Newson's Hourglass design for Ikepod is a work of art in itself.

We love the emerging genre of process – centric documentary and we’re delighted to add another film to the list. This latest entry shows how Marc Newson’s stunning Hourglass design for Ikepod was manufactured. The hourglasses (which retails at $28,500) come in 10 and 60 minute durations and provide a beautiful intersection of cutting edge technology and centuries old artifice: the hourglasses are filled with 8 million carbon nanoballs rather than sand.
