We are excited to be launching our very latest edition to the Tempus timepiece collection. “The Monolith” will be on show at the Winter Lights festival at Canary Wharf in the new year. Showing an exclusive new floor standing design which is a modern take on the traditional grand father clock, in a design that is only possible with the unique manufacturing properties of Corian.
Alongside the floor standing design will be one of our classic circular Tempus designs in carbon antique mirror.
The show is open from the 16th of January to the 27th of January and is open to the public at no cost between 5pm – 10pm.
Please come down and view the all the amazing work on show from a wide collection of international artists.
With a huge thanks to Corian and CDUK for their support with the show and allowing us to push the boundaries of what can be done and achieved with this wonderful material. We used Ice Glacier Corian due to its illumination qualities. There isn’t another material that allows us to thermo form it, engrave it, illuminate it, seamless join it and polish it. This design would not be possible in any other material.
We have been continuing our development and exploration of surfaces materials with Tempus and are excited to share images of our new Iridescent collection.

The three-piece XY 180 collection was designed by OMA, a Dutch architectural firm based in Rotterdam, and presented by Belgian brand Delta Light during Milan design week. The lighting is designed around a hinged fixture allowing for the elements to be moved and connected together, so luminaires can be arranged in various geometric patterns.
By exposing the luminaire, the light becomes the main feature, able to shift and generate into multiple configurations; a product that can contribute to the manifestation of space, not only by the light it emits, but also by its physical presence.
The collection is a reference to OMA‘s architecture, notably, its “fascination with point, line and surface”. These lights, while intended for workspaces, could as well be tailored for domestic or public spaces.
Created by Refik Anadol, a LA based artist, an immersive installation “Infinity Room”, set at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, presents an opportunity of altering participants’ physical and mental state by surrounding them with an engrossing environment.
It facilitates a temporary release from our habitual perceptions and culturally biased assumptions about being in the world, to enable us — however momentarily — to perceive ourselves and the world around us freshly.
The installation forms part of the artist’s ongoing research into audio/visual spaces. Through the concept of “infinity” Anadol attempted to deconstruct the framework of space, and transgress the normal boundaries of a viewing experience.
