The adorable Ipno Clock is a contemporary adaptation of the familiar pendulum clock, combing old technology with a fresh look. Embodying a bell shape with a curved base, the chronometer is capable of rocking back and forth on a level tabletop with every passing second.

What you cannot see is that inside of the table lock is a weight that swings to and fro, causing Alessandro Zambelli's creation to shift. The shape of the Ipno Clock suggests the space required by this sort of mechanical movement, yet the overall appearance of the modern timepiece is fairly minimalist. Each charming wooden item has a lovely colored finish, or it's left with its natural textured surface. Inspired by Hypnos, the Greek god of sleep, this mesmerizing item is perfect for placement on your bedside table.
