EORA is not just a clock. It is a portrait, a friend, an affectionate buddy. Designed as a painting, its frame in ash wood envelops a warm hearted cork which narrates about the secular art of the decortication in the Montado woods. With its clock hands made by popsicle sticks, EORA does not just measure time: it connects the tradition of the past to the dreams of the future.
EORA has been designed to be modular. Its minimal design embraces every style of your space: a minimal living room, a fancy bedroom, a modern office or a classical restaurant.
The background can be easily removed to allow EORA to show its inner soul: an heart of solid ash wood.
You can switch EORA's design according to your feelings, or the season!
What do you think about some moody, warm cork in the wintertime and a fresh white ash wood during the summer? :)
EORA is a precious item for Kibelis because it fully enshrines its philosophy.
Omar Delfo Mascia has always been fascinated by the texture of cork, a natural material typical of his homeland, that encloses both the concepts of sustainability and Made in Italy.
Inspired by a painting, he designed a wooden frame around the cork to highlight its texture. Wood and cork fit together with no glues: this way disassemblability make them easily customizable and recyclable.
Finally, he designed long and thin wooden hands. Then, while making a prototype in his house, he thought "What do I have here I could use?". Ice cream sticks was the answer! The clock's appearance was stunning and he realised "Why should I consume new wood if there are so many sticks to be reused out there?". Therefore, in order to create materials from wastes, he designed a box to place in the bars where people can recycle the sticks.
Our sustainable clock EORA is the first product to feature the Kibelis App, which makes him a totally different thing from any other clock you have ever seen.
The App is totally free and will be soon available for Android and IOS!
But how does it work?
