Vacuumglow (Clock) by Vadim Garnaev
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
Our idea to create a quality VacuumGlow clock has evolved from the idea of continuity. We appreciate vintage and do not overload it with trendy features. We have kept all the exclusive vintage parts to it while adding only the absolute essentials. We have combined gas discharge indicators and advanced technologies in order to create an unusual and upmarket VacuumGlow clock. Now we understand how truly inspiring time aesthetics can be.
VacuumGlow nixie tube clock is an organic combination of vintage elements and modern technologies. Being based on the very rare lamps, the clock is truly unique. The last production was at the end of the 1970s. Unique lamps will naturally compliment a casual modern casing. The indicators' soft glow softens the contours. The finishing touch to the image is specially processed glass panel which provides a warm and delicate light, thus balancing a solid case. The internal design precision determines the exterior.
Design Challenges
At least once everyone asks us: is it only a clock? Through our VacuumGlow clock we are making the exact and clear point - you do not have to surround yourself with smart gadgets that set your alarm with the power of your mind in order to understand the beauty of time. And for us it is the most important creative challenge to share with people - our design idea of time with smooth lines and concise shape. And yes, it is only a clock, because it is enough.
Production Technology
The case of VacuumGlow is simple and quiet. The case is machine-cut and made of aluminum. It is painted with the help of micro-arc oxidation technology , which simultaneously helps to protect metal from corrosion and ensures pleasant tactile properties of the surface. VacuumGlow also has specially processed glass. This accurate method of processing is called water jet cutting, which makes our glass as thin as possible. The decorative lighting completes the image of the clock and sets the mood. You can select any backlight color and change it at any time using the mobile app on your smartphone.
