To cel­e­brate the 5th an­niver­sary of the M.A.D.Gallery, Ger­man sculp­tor Frank Buch­wald in­tro­duces the new Nixie Ma­chine II clock cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dal­i­bor Farny. The M.A.D.Gallery is thrilled to of­fer this evolution of the orig­i­nal Nixie Ma­chine in a col­lec­tion of 12 unique pieces avail­able ex­clu­sively from the M.A.D.Gal­leries in Geneva, Dubai, and

Taipei. The new Nixie Ma­chine II rep­re­sents the next evo­lu­tion­ary stage of the orig­i­nal Nixie Ma­chine. Each and ev­ery de­tail has been man­u­ally hand­crafted, from the de­sign, con­struc­tion, and de­tailed fin­ishes of the clock to the six Nixie tubes pro­duced by Dal­i­bor Farny. The elec­tronic heart of Nixie Ma­chine II is based on a pow­er­ful, Wi-Fi en­abled elec­tron­ics dock, and the clock is con­nected to the In­ter­net to au­to­mat­i­cally keep ac­cu­rate time, re­mov­ing the need to set it man­u­ally. All set­tings and spe­cial fea­tures – in­clud­ing scroll ef­fects, day/night modes, digit light dim­ming, time zone set­tings and more – can be in­tu­itively pro­grammed on­line. The clock can also op­er­ate off­line, reg­u­lated by a knob on the back. For the Ma­chine Lights, each lamp is made us­ing more than 200 in­di­vid­ual com­po­nents in an in­tri­cate com­bi­na­tion where bur­nished black­ened steel throws the rich patina of brass and the warm, yel­low glow of vis­i­ble light fil­a­ments into sharp re­lief. Ev­ery brass com­po­nent is metic­u­lously hand-pol­ished, while the steel is re­peat­edly hand-bur­nished with chem­i­cals to achieve an im­pres­sive silky black ox­i­da­tion. The cre­ation is of­ten com­pleted with the ad­di­tion of a hand-blown glass globe. www.madgallery.net
