Clock Delay – The story 
In our consumer society we loose our feeling for technique. We produce digital products in a plastic body. What happens when they break down? We just buy another one, why make life hard when we can just buy new products? Bloomming thinks that it is better to invest in good quality products, and when it breaks…. Try to repair it. Do it yourself or do it together. It’s fun and you learn a lot about products, how they work, what the materials are and how they’re produced.
 
Clock Delay – Philosophy
Out of this philosophy clock Delay is born. It is impressive how the technique of a clock makes it possible to show the right time. Most of the time this beautiful part is hidden inside a plastic body. Clock Delay works the other way around and exists only out of technical parts. By showing how time works we keep our love for technique.
 
Clock Delay | Materials & Dimensions
Clock Delay is completely made of a high standard stainless steel, every part is made with attention for details. The dimensions of clock Delay are 34x34x48cm (WxDxH).
 
Clock Delay – How does time work?
Quite easy actually. Clock delay exists of three cogwheels: One for hours, one for minutes and one for seconds. 
The Seconds-wheel has 60 teeth and makes 1 rotation a minute, it drives the Minutes-wheel which has also 60 teeth and because of that, it is delayed 60 times, so it makes one rotation an hour. The Minutes-wheel drives the Hours-wheel which has 24 teeth and because of that, it is delayed 24 times, so it makes one rotation a day. 
On the seconds-wheel every tooth is a second, on the minute-wheel every tooth is a minute and on the hours wheel every tooth is an hour. 
Now you will ask: Everything fine, but where are the pointers so I can read time? Pointers are not necessary because you can read time at the point where the wheels nearly meet. Less is more.
