Tempo Rubato

Living by the clock implies a lot of hurrying and worrying. “When we let go of our fixed ideas of time, we have considerably more control over our own tempo than we are aware of,” says Kim Haagen. She designed a clock with a more natural approach to time. ‘Tempo Rubato’ literally goes with the flow; the harder the wind blows, the faster time passes. And when there’s no breeze at all, time stands still. On average, the clock will keep up with ‘real time’, but as the wind fluctuates, so do the minutes, finding a natural pace.
