The Breathing Clock was first developed 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.
The fibre rings around the perimeter of this clock gently move in and out - first squashing slightly width-wise, then squashing height-wise, creating the illusion that it is breathing.
This view shows the central gears and the levers that drive the breathing motion of the clock perimeter.
