Concept

The ChronArte Canna is a spectacular wall clock with real liquid display. A unique design feature for generous and timeless rooms. The twelve crystal clear tubes fill like a cascade with colored water. Minute by minute, hour by hour. When all are filled, the system empties and the cycle begins anew. Continuously flowing water as a symbol for time and its passing. Time as an endless river. Realized with modern means.

The total height of this elegant clock measures 121 cm. The width measures 72 cm. Liquid colors available on consultation. Precious materials – subtly harmonized. Satined, anodized aluminium for the main body. Stable acrylic glass tubes. Specially conditioned water and high-tech ceramics for a long lifespan.
