The Turbine Clock was inspired by the intake fans that can be seen in HVAC systems, jet engines, farm aerators, and any place where you need to move a gas or a liquid from one place to another really fast.
Like many of our designs, this clock is meant to take advantage of the unique properties of 3D printers. This can be seen in the lines that cover the face of the clock, curving slightly on each hour-mark of the clock face, providing visual interest.
Each clock comes with an American made quartz movement and a single AA battery.
Material: 3D Printed PLA (Polylactic Acid), brass hardware
Built Layer By Layer
Instead of using traditional manufacturing methods where material is subtracted in order to create an object, we make use of 3d printing using biologically derived materials to make our lamps. 3d printing is additive — that means material is added layer by layer to build the final object. No additional material is wasted in the process. It’s only a small step in trying to make our work as sustainable as possible
Made From Corn
We are proud to be making use of PLA, a corn based bio-plastic in our lamps. PLA constitutes the entirety of the lamp shade and the bulk of the base, and eventually can be composted.
