Ditch the comfort zone, 
embrace daily challenges.

The Albert Clock, a top-seller at MoMA Design Store, is the brainchild of designer Axel Schindlbeck. This digital wall clock transforms mental arithmetic into a seamless and engaging experience, encouraging users to step outside their comfort zones. Each glance at the clock offers an opportunity to sharpen cognitive skills, with adjustable difficulty modes catering to both children and adults. Crafted by a dedicated team, these clocks are meticulously assembled in small batches to meet current demand.

Mentored in New York and Paris, German designer Axel Schindlbeck co-founded MNTNT in 2014 with software engineer Fred Mauclere, merging their complementary skills. The duo's first product, the Albert Clock, emerged after a successful 2015 crowdfunding campaign, entering production the following year.  Its originality captured global media attention, propelling it into the art and design scene. Today the Albert Clock is available at the MoMA Design Store and has evolved to one of their best-selling products.
