what attributes can contribute to producing a future antique?
Mhin is made from ceramic (body), rubber and metal ('hands'). Its function and form constitutes a solid simplicity not firmly set in any era or movement. These decisions were made in order to aid longevity and ensure that the design intent remains intact over time.
can an object incorporate technology without becoming outdated?
Mhin incorporates technology that ensures accuracy. Instead of advertising this intelligence Mhin masks the technology with simple mechanical motion. As the technology satisfies the functional requirements entirely there will never be a desire for an update.
