Every city has a unique map. The Urban Fabric Map Clock showcases what makes maps fascinating. Rivers, buildings and roads push their way through the landscape, creating vivacious geographical shapes together. The beauty of the city map transforms our clocks into extraordinary objects. While looking at the city, you imagine yourself an explorer: You can gaze at it for as long as you would at a real city map. The products of UrbanFabric are inspired by the beauty of the city map. Every city has a unique map. Many people feel connected with the city in which they live, the clock gives them the ability to display that feeling of being connected. It’s like hanging up a nice map, but more special.
How Its Made
We produce the clocks ourselves with our laser cutter. The entire production process is in our own hands, including giving the clocks a coating and mounting the clockwork. The clocks come in three different sizes. Size S= 29cm, size M= 44cm, size L= 59cm. In 2010 we started producing the UrbanFabric clocks based on city maps. The beauty of the laser cutting machine is that it can cut complicated shapes from materials in a simple manner. This results in the ability to play with light and shadow, with volume and transparency. The UrbanFabric clocks show these qualities. It is also possible to order a clock of a desired city.
