Product specification

For thousands of years people have been trying to use astronomical instruments to determine the time of day through the sun’s position in the sky. Even today, in the age of atomic clocks, sundials with their natural functional principle are a special fascination for us.
"SOLEMIO" is a novel, extraordinary sundial based on the principle of refraction.
Like a lens, the body collects the light in a focal spot that travels across the cylinder during the day.
With the help of the printed solar paths, the time can be read with correct orientation of the sundial – and with a little practice, even the date, the the sun’s position and the direction of the compass.


Function
