Tempo Drop


Tempo Drop designed by Perrocaliente is a modern version of a storm glass, a type of weather forecasting device. It is composed of a sealed glass container, filled with liquid, that allows the user to forecast the weather by observing the appearance of the liquid in the glass.Even though it is not reliable as a weather forecasting device, it is still a beautiful object, where you can observe ever-changing crystal.

What I like about this design besides the functionality aspect of it is that’s the aesthetics of the glass is very captivating and makes you wonder what is it? And what is it used for? The form of the piece shouts out the word pure and clean and reflects on most aspect of Japanese Zen which also shows the similar characteristic of an Asian influence in design.
