The Kosmos Projects' Memento Mori skull clock

The Kosmos Project have designed a compelling — if somewhat morbid — table clock shaped like a human skull called Memento Mori. Launched in 2006 by Ewa Bochen and Maciej Jelski, the Warsaw studio describes the Memento Mori clock as “a red projection on the forehead bone. The time looks like integral part of the skull. This project is our reflection about passing of time and the shortness of human life.” The mortality thing may be a nice touch and all, but even without the esoteric symbolism it’s still one of the cooler timepieces we’ve seen in a long while.
