GrandPa Clock in its floor version – Sanserif Creatius
This clock it’s just a sample of the Spanish designers Sanserif Creatius’ new collection for Habitat Valencia Fair, and its demo called “Three little pigs” which represents a fable on the importance of both the materials in our surrounding and our lifestyle, focusing on the commitment to sustainability and the social design that characterizes these creatives.

Extract from the piece of news: Since our grandparents’ times many things ―including houses―have suffered a big change. Those extremely long corridors and spacious rooms full of large wooden furniture, three-door cupboards and large bookshelves are no longer in use. Nevertheless, some of those pieces did have a charm difficult to find in nowadays furniture.
Bigs, sure; not that practical, ok. But who can forget that spark our mothers’ or grandmothers’ old dressers had? Or that charming floor clock in our grandfathers’ or uncles’ living? Indeed, that clock that inspired the tale of The Seven Little Goats ―in which the youngest hides into the clock to save himself from the wolf.
Well, just because its old and belongs to two generations ago, it doesn’t necessarily have to be considered old or out of fashion. Just a simple reinterpretation can completely change the tale.
