The Cantena is an incredibly unusual wall clock, not only the way it looks but also the way it tells time. It’s a steampunk creation, which uses a hanging bike chain to display time. Though Cantena uses the basic mechanical analog technology, the output is fabulously unique. As the midnight oil burns, the chain of time gradually rotates back to the hour of sunshine for another chained 24 hours. I think, the clock is a beautiful metaphor of life, which passes through a counted number of breaths and then comes back to it’s origin for a new life. Hats off to Andreas Dober, the designer from Germany, for such an out-of-the-box creation. The wonderful timepiece called the Anthologie Quartett Catena is priced at astonishing $2263.
