Zwilling by Christian Kim, a designer based in Cologne, Germany, is a contemporary clock that is modeled after the traditional grandfather timeteller. Nevertheless, there is nothing traditional about this one. Instead, it is a modernized version that focuses predominantly on minimalist aesthetics. Taking the pendulum outside of its case, it is given the illusion of a grandfather clock without its clunky presence.
Created to be mounted on the wall, the pendulum of the Zwilling by Christian Kim does continue to sway side to side like the traditional version. It does so within one second thanks to the magnetic pulse, which allows it to keep time. It is made out of oak, walnut or pine wood and can be finished with transparent or colored wax.
