Touted as London’s first indoor sundial, the ‘shadow clock’ has been designed by Pethick & Money for the Times Place commercial building on Pall Mall. Being installed in June, the clock works via a light source travelling around the circumference of a metre-wide stone dial. The light casts a shadow from the central chromed brass cone, called a gnomon, which points to the hour of the day. The clock’s designer, Josh Riley, says the ‘exciting and fun’ project has required ‘expertise, genuine enthusiasm and patience’ from the suppliers of the various components.
