Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo, Japan, 2012-03-06 - A coffee table is made of sand in hourglass fixed in the ambiance without a case. Time stops while taking a short breath to drink some coffee. “I want to stop time, even if it is impossible. Escape from busy works while drinking a cup of coffee, at least. I tried to make the coffee table formed into sands in hourglass. Hourglass is a symbol of passage of time. I think that if falling sands could be stopped, time would also stop.”

Though this hourglass has no glass case, sands are not scattered and keeps its form as if time was stopping. It looks strange, and incredible. In fact, sands are formed into the content of hourglass by epoxy resin. A prop is a slender clear acrylic rod to express falling sands. Top of hourglass has a wood plate within sands, so it can be use as a table.

About the designer :
Japanese designer Shinobu Koizumi,
qualified bachelor of design and fine arts at Tokyo Zokei University. Joined a construction company and engaged in designing of shop space.
After retired, founded Shinobu koizumi Design Office.

The most important factor for me is “what people experience” by design, rather than processing shapes and colors. I proposes new experiences by form of spaces, furniture, and products.
