STARDUST / WALLCLOCK / WALLPAPER* - AMTICO / 2013
STARDUST is a wall clock in vynil flooring marketry made in collaboration with the british compagny Amtico for the Wallpaper* handmade 2013 exhibition.
Flooring specialist Amtico has very precise cutting machinery that it uses to produce bespoke patterns and designs for individual customers, with each design then being assembled by hand.
I wanted to use the technique to create a wall clock inspired by a marine watch or car speedo, with the vinyl marquetry used not to decorate its surface, but to directly link it to the clock’s functionality.
