RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A technical research and materials has been done, in order to find the correct sinergy to make the clock working accordingly with the final design. Suppliers were investigated, samples were requested and, prototypes testing were done. The net and, current suppliers were used to make the research. The designer, suppliers and the turner participated. The experiments done were: look for semi-espherical shaped materials, like plastic and other materials and test them with the technical part (clock machinery, needles and magnets) and the interaction with the external spherical ball. A positive result was found, then next step was look for the final external material (wood). All the impacts were positive from participants, suppliers and close public. At the same time, the same impact was produced at the real life, it can be defined as visual impact and curiosity for its working system.

CHALLENGE:
From the idea until the first prototype it has been an intense research. Both looking for the most accurate materials as well as the technical part.
