The Fantôme Clock is a classy clock made of glass and steel and an analogue, skeletal mechanism made of chromed single pieces in a silver finish. A mirror background creates an optical illusion allowing both, back and front of the clock, to be visible at the same time.
The Fantôme Clock is simply breath-taking. The visual effect of the ghost clock is simply mesmerizing. When looking at the carriage clock, you are encouraged to slowly walk around the Fantôme clock in an attempt to decipher the optical illusion. Cleverly combining clear, beautifully engraved glass with a skeletal mechanism and mirrored background gives the contemporary clock an unnatural depth of field, and allows both the front and the ghostly back of the clock to be visible at the same time. A perfect contemporary transcription of the classic carriage clock, the Fantôme Clock, is usually found haunting a mantelpiece, bookcase or table top. Fantôme won the 2006 Gift of the Year Award, presented by the UK’s Giftware Association.
