08 Sep Sanserif Creatius transforms grandfather clock into eco-friendly design product
World of Interiors Network: Spanish design brand Sanserif Creatius has transformed a classic grandfather clock into an environmentally-friendly design for contemporary interiors, named as the ‘Grandpa Clock’.
The structure of the Grandpa Clock is made entirely with biodegradable corrugated cardboard. The Grandpa Clock is the first in a new line of objects for the home, which blends eco-friendly features along with other factors such as aesthetics, ergonomics and functionality.

This piece is conceived using a series of die-cut sections imitating the carved volumes and contours characteristic of the classic grandfather or standing clock, coupled with the clock’s conventional workings, pendulum and case. Maintenance of these parts gives the piece a vintage feel that fits in well with contemporary interiors. Grandpa Clock also comes in a more slender wall version with smaller spaces in mind. Grandpa Clock recovers and reinterprets the classic yet almost vanished standing clock. The new reworked version is suitable for contemporary homes.
Grandpa Clock will have its world premiere during the upcoming Feria Habitat Valencia, a Spanish design event, from 28 September to 2 October 2010. The piece will be on display in Three Little Pigs, an exhibition inspired by the children’s fairytale and featuring a collection of totally biodegradable furniture and objects for home made of corrugated cardboard.
