Product Design // Carriage Clock // Lucy Roscoe // The Book Tree Press

Evocative of another era, yet strangely reminiscent, of dare I say it, the Louis Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck, for Kartell. Both are made from unexpected materials, whilst using 2 classic designs, and it’s this unexpected twist, that awes and delights the eye.
Roscoe’s use of white paper merely draws attention, to the simple shape and form of the clock, providing an aura of simple elegance. The seeming frailty of the clock, adds to the charm. If a clock could look virginal, this would be the clock.
I look forward to seeing this on my mantelpiece, although at £50, it may have to be a birthday present to myself.
