Lash Clock by Bina Baitel is an interesting creation. It is a circular disk inlaid with hair (or fiber), which is parted to represent the position of the hour and minute hands. The clock’s idea is to offer a “new experience in the perception of time.”
Now this is a sweet novelty item. Just press on the top of the spraycan figure, and it projects the time on the directed object. The Spraycan Projection Alarm Clock is priced at $20.
Design studio Humans Since 1982 brought analog and digital into the same category with a very interesting style and fashion. An installation by the studio features a set of 288 analog clocks. Although, rather than show time, all these clocks work together to create one massive digital clock that displays time.
Taking the scenic route of minimalist beauty, the circuit wall clock by designer Stevan Djurovic looks simply like a circular hollow disk. The magic of time telling in the clock comes through two subtle beams of light that rotate around the clock, one on the inside and the other on the outside. The outside LED works as the hour hand, while the inner LED does its job as the minute hand. It’s still just a concept and will hopefully see the light of the day very soon.
Spire Clock may look like some weird kind of weapon, but it is pretty harmless in reality. Inspired by the movement of the Japanese holding fan, the Spire Clock has its hour and minute hands serve as constraints of the spiral. The flow of time and the rhythm of the clock become very fascinating to watch.
We’ve all noticed days when time seems to fly by and days when time comes to have come to a standstill. This clock seems to be for the former occasion, and it really does give the feel of time running at full speed. Sadly, there is no way to make time slow down on occasions when you really want to.
Fable Mantle Clock is just the dose of interesting the doctor ordered. The timepiece has the classic domed cage with a tree that rotates as every second goes by. The hours and minutes are displayed on the base with proportional and contextual movements, and what we find to be a very calm and interesting design. Fable is the work of Gilbert 13, a partnership between Angela and Mark Gilbert.
