Keeping Tabs on Time

Here’s an idea spawned from an everyday object – parking coupons that are indigenous to Singapore.

To use, drivers have to tear out tabs on each coupon to indicate the date and time of parking. These torn-out tabs are often discarded conveniently all over the car park.

Our inspired work of art is made of silver and fashioned in the shape of such tabs. It can be used as a necklace or lanyard for wallets. By immortalising these tabs, we have infused a seemingly trivial and useless object with renewed importance. It also serves as an intriguing way for us to keep tabs on the sands of time.

This object is part of an artisanal series and is made-to-order. Please email to enquire should you be interested in owning one.
