MB&F, along with its friends at L’Epée, has designed an eclectic art structure, which not only keeps time, but helps forecast weather as well. Described as an “intergalactic horological weather station,” the Fifth Element is fashioned from stainless steel and brass and hosts various pods, each responsible for its own separate function — clock, barometer, thermometer, and hygrometer.

A miniature alien figure is placed beneath the pods, seamlessly rotating around the cockpit — adding stylistic relevance to the intergalactic design. Available in a trio of colorway options, each structure is comprised of 531 different components. To learn more about the Fifth Element, be sure to drop by MB&F’s official website.
