Unlike other clocks that require a simple glance and a split-second to tell the time, the Albert Clock wants your focused and undivided attention. It also wants to sharpen your math skills, whether you like it or not. This digital wall clock, created by designer Axel Schindlbeck for MNTNT, keeps the brain waves active by presenting you with mathematical equations that you’d have to solve to know what time it is. Goodbye, spoon-feeding! Continue reading »
Alex Chinneck’s (previously) latest artwork, ‘Growing up gets me down’, transforms an antique grandfather clock into a contemporary sculpture.
The unique piece, which is on display and available to purchase at Liberty London, achieves the seemingly impossible task of tying the body of a longcase oak clock into a knot. The result is an inventive and witty twist on a traditional aesthetic, breathing new life and eccentricity into an antique object. Continue reading »
Soft-spoken and very clever, Russian watch and clock maker Konstantin Chaykin’s creations never fail to intrigue me. For 2017, his newest watch is a limited edition all about whimsy (and Batman villains). The Konstantin Chaykin Joker is a characterful and relatively friendly homage to the famed Batman villain of the same name. The point of the watch isn’t just to remind watch collectors of the Joker character, but to use his theme in order to present a timepiece with a “face” that has about 20,000 distinct “facial expressions.” Continue reading »

Inspired by motion capture techniques used in movies such as Lord Of The Rings and Avatar, designer J.P. Meulendijks has created a wall clock for Plankton, that appears to change shape when looked at from different angles. When you have a closer look, you can see that the numbers on the clock face area made up of little white balls that ‘float’ at different heights. When you move around the clock, for example side to side, the numbers dissolve and transform into different shapes resulting in an optical illusion, and making the clock appear more as a piece of art than a device to tell time.

Haoshi Design is named after the Chinese for “good things”, and has come up with this cute little clock which looks like a sparrow’s nest. Made of resin, the clock is modern looking and is as much a decorative feature as as functional timepiece. The designers were inspired by watching the little birds flying outside of their window, and we love the design. Continue reading »
doubleTwist Alarm has been an overwhelmingly successful project. It has received universal acclaim, from Google executives to design publications and many Android and gadget websites. Yet, the first question on anyone’s lips was always the same: “Why an alarm clock? Why would you take a swing at something so trivial and small, something so elementary to any cellphone made since the 1980s?” Continue reading »
Awesome analogue clock, created by Vladislav Novikov-Barkovsky. Btw, don’t miss his “Lunar Money” project:
