Reindeer moss – named for the peculiar antlered mammals who eat it – finds its way inside your home on the face of this anti-industrial design by Noktuku. Though the Netherlandic studio primarily focuses on methods of CNC fabrication, their hand-made timepiece demonstrates an incredibly deep understanding of natural processes and traditional craftsmanship. The Moss Clock is as stunning as it is simple; made from nothing more than a steam-bent Baltic birch plywood with a single connection joint, the circular frame contains a careful selection of genuine Norwegian reindeer moss that serves to “bring nature into your home” and “make it the center of discussion.” Refined orange hands provide a pleasing contrast to the plant’s natural vibrance, which speaks both to the beauty of nature’s fertility as well as the fleeting nature of time through the incorporation of a living component to its measure. This charming hand-crafted piece helps to elevate the natural world and bring it closer to home.
