Ikepod continues to pursue the collector’s market with its new hour glass by designer Marc Newson. The clock is a feat of engineering made using borosilicate glass and millions of stainless steel nanoballs. Borosilicate is a specialized and unusually durable type of glass. It is used in laboratories and aerospace applications because it is able to withstand high pressure and weight loads.
Each of the hour glass pieces are blown individually by a glass blower based in Basel Switzerland (where else?)
