The dial of this clock is composed of a sequence of constantly increasing wooden frames, where each one is inserted into the next size while rotated 15 degrees.
Each frame bites into the bigger one halfway - so no glue is used at composing the assembly. This gives the dial a strange whirl look - hence the name.
The vein direction of each frame rotates together with the frame, and this gives a special shading effect on the surface: some frames look lighter while others darker - however all the frames bear the same colour (see image: Whirl - right side).
- Material: at selection of the raw materials the main principle to follow was to keep the natural appearance of the wood as much as possible - thus plywood has been selected, for it bears the vein system of the wood, still strong and thin enough.
- Manufacturing process: the dial is made of 9 wooden frames that are laser cut from a single 6mm birch plywood, the frames stick into one another without glue, the the finishing (polishing) is made by hand. The surface is oiled.
Owing to the rotating vein direction of the frames an unique toning effect appears on the surface: certain frames look lighter while others seem darker - however each frame bear the same colour.
- The movement: is non-ticking, runs with 1 AA size battery (not included in the package owing to fire protection reasons). Standard hands are plastic in black colour, optional custom hands are available for extra 3USD (see the last photo).
