QLOCKTWO® 10 Years Edition - Thousands of years of old craftsmanship meets modern design

(lifePR) (Schwäbisch Gmünd, ) With 10 individual enamel fronts for the QLOCKTWO®CLASSIC, Marco Biegert and Andreas Funk recall the beginnings of QLOCKTWO®. The fronts were personally enamelled by the two creators and founders of QLOCKTWO®and will be presented for the first time at imm cologne.

Thousands of years of old arts and crafts meet modern award-winning design - and a new way of thinking about traditional craftsmanship. Marco Biegert and Andreas Funk rarely take the straight and narrow path to reach their goal. They think off the beaten track. This also applies to enameling. Traditional techniques are questioned, rethought or even completely ignored. In this way they achieve effects, which one finds only rarely in the traditional enameling technique so far. The results are textures and structures that are unique and cannot be repeated. By firing at a certain temperature, the fusion to a smooth surface is avoided, so that the applied structures are preserved. Different surfaces made of steel or silver, several successively fired enamel layers with different degrees of coverage, create together with the illumination of the letters very unusual shades on the enameled surface of the front. Each front of the 10 Years Edition is numbered and engraved. 

Marco Biegert and Andreas Funk were inspired to their enamel works by Peter May. In their search for suitable premises for their advertising agency, the two met the Schwäbisch Gmünd enamel artist. Peter May (1925 - 2010) spent his whole life dealing with enamel art. Characteristic of his work is enamel painting, a technique that is difficult to master and which he masterfully understood. Marco Biegert and Andreas Funk initially had several rooms at their disposal in the vacant building of his former jewellery factory in Goethe-Straße in Schwäbisch Gmünd for setting up their agency, including the former enamel workshops. More and more rooms were added until the two took over the entire building and finally acquired it completely. This created sufficient development space not only for the successful advertising agency, but as well for the development of QLOCKTWO®.

The 10 Years Edition is thus also a tribute to the Schwäbisch Gmünd enamel artist Peter May.

QLOCKTWO® celebrates time in a special way. The typographic display connects the moment with the written word and makes it the statement "IT IS HALF EIGHT". A matrix of 110 seemingly randomly arranged characters forms the basis. The individual letters are combined by illuminated surfaces to form words that describe the time in five-minute steps. 4 illuminated dots in the corners ensure that the display is accurate to the minute. In addition to the QLOCKTWO® CLASSIC and QLOCKTWO® LARGE models and QLOCKTWO® 180 (wall clock, self-standing clock or wall clock), the current product portfolio includes a practical table clock with alarm function, QLOCKTWO® TOUCH, as well as a high-quality wristwatch in two sizes, QLOCKTWO® W35 and QLOCKTWO® W39.
