Smart technology is rendering hourglass designs obsolete, encouraging designers and lovers of the classic time-telling method to bring more invention and creativity to it -- which this Magnetic Hourglass timepiece from Kikkerland serves as a perfect example of, as it offers consumers an immersive experience that can't be replicated through technology.
Kikkerland's Magnetic Hourglass replaces the standard filling of sand with iron to achieve its unique patterns. When the product is flipped upside down, the magnetized balls fall, creating a dynamic vertical structure upon reaching the bottom. Upon first glance, this imaginative design is sure to stir intrigue and confusion among all. This beautiful time piece poses as a unique analog solution to timekeeping needs that seamlessly blends into any modern home.
