the National Design Collective is a venue for new classic design. Our mission is to spread great design that will last – products that are true to materials, and are functional, clever, and simple. Founded by Scott Bodaly and Heather Lam, the NDC began as a result of excessive creative energy and object curiosity. The NDC values local production, the ability to consult with craftspeople, and the pursuit of an intimate understanding of the manufacturing processes.


Cairo Star Dance is a precisely timed choreographed pattern produced by an array of 25 clocks, inspired by the precise cuts of a diamond pattern. The clock hands create a unique pattern at 15- minute intervals that transition in a mesmerizing dance.
