Inspired by Ikepod Hourglass designed by Marc Newson, Hodinkee teamed with the legendary Australian industrial designer to create a limited edition hourglass. Each piece is crafted entirely by hand, the body of the piece is made from a single piece of borosilicate glass, filled with almost 1.3 million copper-coated nanoballs measuring 0.6mm in diameter.
Priced at $12,000 the Marc Newson Hourglass for Hodinkee comes in a limited edition of 100 pieces.
Housed in custom orange foam case, each Marc Newson Hourglass includes a copper-foil certificate of authenticity signed by Newson himself.
Check out below, behind the scenes in the factory to see how each one is made.
