The T-Rex: A showstopping table clock that is the result of the 11th collaboration between MB&F and L’Epée, designer Maximilian Maertens was inspired by the actual skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex and successfully emulated one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs in this unique design. Maximilian Maertens studied 3D scans of dinosaur fossils to inject authenticity into the T-Rex’s legs’ proportions and positioning. This beautiful design shows a true confluence of power and presence—a fitting gift for someone who appreciates precision craftmanship, as well as the unusual.
The Swinging Stick is all set to hypnotize your nearest and dearest. This beautiful item displays a magical performance of sticks that are flowing and swirling endlessly without generating any noise – like perpetual motion, that seems to contradict the laws of physics. If you want to give the gift of serenity, then this hand-made decorative kinetic artwork is a perfect choice.

The gold platted 200 limited edition exhibits a depiction of the earth (Fishtail) and the moon (Weight). This gift is sure to draw a smile on the face of your loved one every time they see it.
