Analog Digital Clock

April 13th, 2010

Analog Digital Clock is an iPhone app designed by Maarten Baas. Actually, it’s just the iPhone version of one of his Real Time clocks which he presented during last years Salone del Mobile in Milan. The clock is actually a film, you can see an actor painting the segments of a giant digital clock black and then wiping them clean again.
So, this is of course a pointless iPhone app but still a very nice one. And $0.99 or €0.79 are worth it.

This is a behind the scene photo, showing you how they filmed it.

Reflectius Clock

April 11th, 2010

The Reflectius is very interesting clock concept by Art. Lebedev Studio. Reflectius features sixty rotating mirrors that successively reflect a single laser beam at precise angles to draw numbers. It’s also very nice to see the design process.

The design process:

BASTER

BASTER is Bas Koopmans his professional playground. The interface of his website is a little quirky, but his projects are great. I really like these 2 projects:

It’s quite amazing how many different designs there’re for a simple clock. Tristan Zimmermann his Oblique Clock is my current favorite.

Sun Clock

December 21st, 2009

This is the perfect clock for today. The Sun Clock by Hironao Tsuboi doesn’t only tell you the time, but it also shows you the sunset and sunrise times. I’m not sure if you can enter your exact latitude and longitude.

I don’t know why but I like clocks like this Wall Clock, designed by Hundreds Tens Units.

1g/min

October 18th, 2009

1g/min is an installation by Albin Karlsson. A machine attached to the ceiling rotates with the speed of one revolution per hour. Every minute, a one gram of hotglue drops on the floor. You can image how it takes till the sculpture takes form.

Solar-powered Clock

October 8th, 2009

The Vienna-based design studio Vandasye designed this Solar-powered Clock. I don’t only like the aesthetics but also how they show the context of their design projects in their portfolio.

Sèvres Vase Clock

August 21st, 2009

This Sèvres Vase Clock by Georgios Maridakis actually works with any vase. You can place any you like on the stand and then adjust the hammer. Every hour the hammer will knock on the vase, the sound will depend on the vase of course. The combination of a hammer and porcelain is quite nice.

Continue Time Clock

July 16th, 2009

This clock called “Continue Time” was designed by Sander Mulder. He connected the seconds hand to the minutes hand to the hours hand, the result is kinetic artwork that changes it shape continiously during a 12 hours rotation.
Of course, this isn’t a new clock concept, I’ve seen one before but it didn’t look so nice as this one with its open brass clockwork and aluminum hands. If you want a digital version, you should have a look at The Hand in Hand Clock by Johan Bisse Mattsson.
