Marc Newson’s latest creation for Ikepod™ sees the Australian designer interpret the most iconic timepiece of all: The Hourglass. Director Philip Andelman traveled to Basel, Switzerland, to document the designer’s modern take of the classic hourglass inside the Glaskeller factory. Each hand-made hourglass comprises highly durable borosilicate glass, is available in 10- or 60-minute versions, and each contains millions of stainless steel nanoballs that won’t scratch up the glass over time.  I just finished watching the video below which got all the nanoballs inside my own heart of glass jumping up and down like crazy.  So loverly.
