Spanish design outfit Sanserif Creatius have taken a classic interior feature and given it an environmentally-friendly design overhaul.
The Grandpa Clock is the first creation in a series of home objects committed to environmentally friendly objectives. The structure is made entirely with biodegradable corrugated cardboard.
The piece comprises a series of die-cut pieces that imitate the carved volumes and contours typical of the timeless clock. Incorporating the conventional inner workings, pendulum and case, the clock cleverly comes in a more slender wall version to make it suitable for smaller, more modern spaces.
Targeting a generation for whom social and environmental values are on par with factors like aesthetics, ergonomics and functionality, the Grandpa Clock will give a vintage feel to any modern interior.
Grandpa Clock will make its international debut at the Feria Habitat Valencia fair in Spain between 28 September and 2 October 2010. The piece will be displayed in the Three Little Pigs exhibition, which will feature only biodegradable home furniture and objects made using corrugated cardboard.
