In this day and age, time is quickly morphing into a digital component—people walk the streets with heads bent into mobile phones, and the turn of pages is being replaced by the blueish glow of screens. Seletti’s Hourglass I—the diamond-like design shown here on the left—is an homage to a different era, when minutes and seconds were measured in sand. Housed in blown glass with gently-rounded lines, this beautiful piece keeps the time—and the peace.
