Inspired by the amazing timepieces of Erwin Sattler in Munich, whose clocks and nautical instruments can be found aboard quite a few exceptional yachts, amongst those the 88m sailing yacht Maltese Falcon, coquine![design] developed a cutting edge coffee table with the clockmaker’s Tempus Mobile Atlantis featured as a centre piece.
The table, Atlantis In Balance, takes clues from the precision and intricacy of the clocks; carbon fibre, stainless steel and glass form an almost weightless unit while the necessary rigidity is achieved by linking the elements into a 3-dimensional network.
Christian Leyk of coquine![design]: “We’d imagine this coffee table being the focus of the upper deck salon , sitting on a skylight which could link to the dining area below, thus creating an amazing ceiling feature, too. The Tempus Mobile Atlantis really looks like a jewel that deserves an appropriate mounting. It is gimballed and features a heeling indicator, so it is the perfect accessory for any modern styled yacht. Actually, it’s almost like something you would expect coming from a different galaxy, so we wanted to capture this aspect, too. Hopefully nobody will mistake it for a piece of art, you can still use it for putting your cocktail glass down…”
