Ideas in Time
TUESDAY - SUNDAY: 10.30AM - 6PM
‘Behind everything Beautiful is a Beautiful Idea’
This is the creative mantra of Robert Darwen the designer and maker behind Fibonacci Clocks.
Robert studied Philosophy & Aesthetics at the University of London and combines his fascination for mathematics with his love of fluid line drawing. His parents were mathematicians and his grandfather was an artist.
He creates Music, Maths and Art clocks & timepieces that give visual expression to his intellectual and artistic obsessions, and he has created many bespoke clocks for private and corporate clients. Robert has exhibited at venues from Scandinavian to the Middle-East and his work has sold through Selfridges, national galleries and museums.
He is currently working on a large scale public installation for an astronomy project – this involves London school children combining STEM curriculum elements with artistic expression and cultural diversity.
Robert is also currently working on a commission for a world-renowned astronomy body for an interactive sundial.
He gives talks at London schools and universities on motivated learning in mathematics, engineering and product design.
He can be contacted for commissions and lectures via the website.
His clocks can be purchased directly from the craft market in Covent Garden or online via the website.
