The classical interior of the Cathedral Quarter Hotel inspired the design of these two clocks. Imagined as instruments which might have been commissioned in the 1700s, the Quadrant Clocks are a combination of the traditional and contemporary, and complementing the décor and ambiance of the hotel.
The single handed quadrant clock indicates time over a quarter of a turn, and every 12 hours returns or “flies back” to its starting point. The world time clock embodies a polar projection view of the earth, which turns once in 24 hours and indicates the time of day or night at key global locations with the star field denoting the portion of our world currently under the night sky.
Both clocks are crafted from stainless steel and glass, with etched detail that sparkles with the light from concealed LEDs. As befitting the location of the clocks, the time and place indexing is repeated on the reverse to enable readability from the lobby and the stairs.
The clocks are accurate timekeepers but neither are minute specific. Their intriguing design and measured speed pays tribute to the ambience of their setting, encouraging guests to take time and relax, away from their otherwise demanding schedules.
