Since its establishment in 1929, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York has been heralded as one of the most influential modern art museums in the world, with highly famed pieces from the likes of Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dali and Claude Monet, just to name a few, to have been exhibited there.
MoMA has played a vital role in developing and collecting modernist art, with their collections offering an overview of modern and contemporary works of architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, electronic media, and more.
Japanese designer, Kazunori Tashima, specialises in timepieces, and this square Glow in the Dark Wall Clock was specially made for MoMA. This distinctive analogue clock features bold graphic numbers and a straightforward appearance… at first. Expose the clock to daylight or fluorescent light for around 30 minutes before plunging your room into darkness, and watch the black background disappear as the 3D numbers and hands glow as if they’re floating on the wall.
With all proceeds from MoMA products sold going directly back into the museum’s programs, you will have a hand in preserving history, while enjoying a piece of functional art for many more years to come.
