A philosophy of time by Marc Newson

Creations by HG Timepiece are ancient objects, which have been reimagined by embracing the cutting-edge technological advancements of the 21st century. They recognise the passing of time as a meditative experience, increased by the multi-sensorial experience of the designs. These timepieces are the perfect lens through which to experience Newson’s design philosophy: ‘we are striving to create objects that will be treasured by their users for generations to come and which will not become obsolete’.

Marc is the only designer represented by the Gagosian Gallery,
and leading museums around the world have hosted
solo retrospective exhibitions of his work.

A remarkable engineering and craftsmanship

The Hourglass was first to be born, followed by the Klepsydra. They both embody Marc Newson’s sense of beauty, quality, precision and light-heartedness. The apparent simplicity of the designs are the result of remarkable engineering and craftsmanship. Newson reflects that each design has ‘over a million moving parts’. That’s over a million opportunities to witness time elapsing in a truly mesmeric way.
