Time Fast D8


This vintage-inspired race car and a modern clock in one is a kinetic sculpture that tells the time. It was designed by Georg Foster, an ECAL Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury & Craftsmanship student in collaboration with Swiss manufacture L’Epée 1839, during a workshop led by watch designer Fiona Krüger. For all generations, classic 50s cars are firmly ingrained in the collective subconscious and imagination. The piece features a number of eye-catching details, such as the long protruding engine hood, the typical 1950s radiator grill, the large spoked wheels, the driving seat positioned to the rear and the sloping back section. Its overall sporty feel is reinforced by its elegant design, flawless finishes and fluid lines. The name of the Time Fast D8 clearly conveys its technical aspirations: single-seaters boasting a sleek design and assertive aerodynamics, they fuel many a dream.
