Kisho Kurokawa Inspiration Wall Clock

Kisho Kurokawa Inspiration Wall Clock was designed by a master of “Abstract Symbolism;” which is the ability to give architecture its own independent geometric figure (circle, cube, ellipse, etc.). It’s the “sum” of these parts that build not only museums, but all structures. Kurokawa’s ever pervasive use of “abstract symbolism” in his clock can be witnessed in his use of circles and lines in a repeated format throughout giving us “Inspiration.”

Kisho Kurokawa Inspiration Wall Clock was designed in 1999 and is made of aluminum and painted red. It measures 13 ½” in diameter and operates on one AA battery (not included).

Kisho Kurokawa Inspiration Wall Clocks is currently out of production.

"The museum of the future will become a complex with elements such as amusement facility, lifelong education, people's workshop, information center, etc. Obviously this will turn a museum into a complex of several architectures. The method of Abstract Symbolism, which gives each architecture its own independent geometric figure (such as a circle, cube, ellipse) and reorganizes them as a complex, is effective in designing a museum."
