The Enso Clock began with a ground-up conceptualization and design for a new timer and clock to be used for meditation and yoga. Salubrion focused on creating an innovative method for conveying time to the user, resulting in the use of the Japanese Enso.
Enso, which means circle in Japanese, symbolizes enlightenment, elegance, and the universe. Traditionally, the enso is painted with a single clockwise brushstroke, beginning and ending at the bottom. The central display feature of Salubrion’s new clock is the Enso that surrounds the screen and is gradually brushed on-screen as the timer progresses. This way, the user can glance at the Enso and see the relative amount of time that has elapsed, eliminating the distraction of focusing on the exact numerical time that remains.
The Salubrion Enso Clock allows for Interval Timing in which the user can set sequential timers that run one-after-the-other to compose an overall session. At the end of each interval or timer, one of several available soothing chimes is played. The Enso Clock’s chimes are recorded from Tibetan and Japanese singing bowls as used in traditional meditation sessions. Using the latest audio technology, the Enso Clock’s reproduction of the singing bowl chimes is very high quality and virtually indistinguishable from original.
In addition to countdown timing, Salubrion’s clock can be used as an alarm clock, featuring the same soothing chimes.
The beautiful satin champagne finish along the sides of the clock is complemented by a black rubber coating on the backside of the clock. The clock can be placed flat on the floor in front of you for use during seated meditation, or propped up using the elegant hinged stand that folds out of the back of the clock. Each Enso Clock also includes a convenient carrying case with an integrated cleaning cloth that both protects and polishes.
