Brief and Design
We were approached by Element Six to design and develop a commemorative product. The chosen product was an hourglass which utilised their diamond grit in place of the traditional sand. Diamond, being one of the hardest substances, is very abrasive, therefore, the hourglass vessel had to be manufactured in glass to prevent scratching. We worked closely with our glass-blowing supplier to create two sealed inverted cones which were supported by a decorative structure made from steel, acrylic and carbon fibre.
