Simon Husslein - Warp
This rotating timepiece was designed for the six-storey rotunda
of the Great Eastern Hotel, London. Its protruding warped forms, built
by digital manufacturing, cast upright shadows of numbers to tell the time
when each form is aligned with the light.
Husslein has worked on product design,
interfaces, digital fonts, timepieces and furniture and now brings these
diverse influences and practices together as a creative designer. He
completed his studies at the Fachhochschule Darmstadt in 2000 and has
designed for offices in Munich, Frankfurt and Tokyo. Working with Hannes
Wettstein in Zurich, he managed projects for clients like BMW, Panasonic
and Sony. He is currently studying towards a Masters Degree at the Royal
College of Art in London.
