Frank Buchwald unveils Nixie Machine II at MB&F M.A.D. Gallery

Jun 16, 2017

German sculptor Frank Buchwald, in collaboration with Dalibor Farny, introduces the new Nixie Machine II clock – an evolution of the original Nixie Machine – in a collection of 12 unique pieces available exclusively from the M.A.D. Galleries in Geneva, Dubai, and Taipei. Frank Buchwald’s works were part of the initial showcase at the inauguration of the first M.A.D. Gallery in Geneva. Introduced in the 1950s, Nixie tubes became a popular way of presenting numerals using glow discharge. Based on a powerful, Wi-Fi-enabled electronics dock, Nixie Machine II is connected to the internet to automatically keep accurate time. The clock can also operate offline, regulated by a knob on the back.
