Helios Sundials

"Carlo Heller's sundial is a precision instrument, sensational, aesthetically pleasing, weather-proof and handcrafted in an unusually loving fashion: It brings a totally new perspective to the ancient idea of time measurement via the earth's orbit of the sun."

The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) writes about the HELIOS Subsolaris and its inventor on 4 September 2001. Until today Helios e.K. offers you an exclusive range of accurate sundials with modern design.

Jens Schmitz-Scherzer

As an illustrator and graphic designer, Jens Schmitz-Scherzer works intensively with light and shade in nature, in paintings and in illustrations.
He is particularly fascinated by the fact that it is possible to read the time from the shadow of an object, e. g. a style inserted into the ground. He developed a series of historic cardboard construction kits. These contain original dials of designers from the heyday of sundial making.
