STORY by design company FLYTE is a clock with a hidden magnet that makes a chrome ball appear to fly. The metal sphere replaces the traditional hand and resembles the earth traveling around the sun. A unique feature is the individual settings which allow the user to perceive time in a very personal way.

The clock has three different modes: “Clock“, “Journey“ and “Timer“. The first mode works with a minimalist 12-hours levitating, whereas the second mode counts time until a specific date. The third mode works as a timer for shorter intervals. A mobile app allows to switch the modes. Another benefit of this time piece is, that users can adapt it to their own needs. Thanks to its magnetic levitation technology STORY can levitate in multiple alignments. The main display with a walnut or ash wood surface is backlit, another optical allusion to the world’s 365 day journey around the sun.
