Our third collaboration with leading neurologist and author Dr. Richard Restak follows the sold-out Brain (2013) and Memory (2016). Like its predecessors, Time & Brain uses scientific insight and unconventional design to shed light on the miraculous workings of the human brain.
On this occasion, the subject is time – a concept Dr. Restak explores in fascinating detail in an exclusive 104-page book supplied together with Time & Brain. Together, writing instrument and book provide a package full of stories and insights that to appeal to managers, watch aficionados, self-improvers and even science fiction nerds.
This is a point that needs to be understood and explained to dealers and media in order for the pen’s full potential to be realised.
Limited editions in Sterling Silver (300 FP + 300 RB) and 18k Gold (8 FP + 8 RB) use acrylic resin, lost wax casting and precision engraving to tell its revolutionary story.
The fountain pen’s 18k Gold nib features a custom yellow gold relief depicting the symbiosis between brain and clock. This same motif also anchors a custom presentation case resembling a vintage 24 hour timepiece.
Time & Brain follows Brain (2013) and Memory (2016) as the final limitededition made in collaboration with the distinguished neurologist, Dr.
Alongside its many overt references to time, Time & Brain is conceived on an oblique set of design codes that reveal the hidden complexity of the present as a station between the future and past. The act of writing allows us to escape the here and now, and reorder information into valuable, fulfilling memories.
An unconventional triple-section barrel refers to the three phases of time. The 3mm height of its separator ring represents three seconds the cut-off point at which all humans have a shared perception of time.
The miniature hourglass housed within the blindcap is made of high tempered glass and measures a timespan of approximately three seconds – an analogy for the present.
The three pillars protecting the hourglass represent stimuli, memories and focus – the cognitive processes that feed our complex interpretation of time.
