Times have changed and so have the gadgets that keep a tab on time. Clocks are no longer just a machine to tell you what time is it, but they have evolved into beautiful things and come in some really fascinating and innovative designs. These innovations are not just restricted to the designs of these clocks, but have also occurred in the realm of the material used, their placements (wall clocks are no longer meant to hang only on the walls) etc. Let’s tell you about some such cool clocks:
1. Oclock Clock
This clock makes it presence felt in any room, even if you have minimal furniture, this clock will make it look quite full. The designer says that he didn’t intend to produce such a clock but the production process led to this unique piece. This clock is made of plastic powder which is set in a mold and then put in an oven. It is a kind of organic shape and despite the diameter being 120 centimeter, the Oclock Clock is light weight. So you get a nice, big clock with a very unique design, light but one which has an overwhelming presence in the room.
2. Melting Clock
This clock is inspired by the famous painting “The Persistence of Memory” by Dali. It has been designed to give a feeling that the clock is melting, connoting that time waits for none and is slowly passing. It may be a surreal, melted clock but is very accurate when it comes to telling the time. It can balance perfectly on any flat surface, a desk or any counter. It is not just a clock but, without a doubt, a piece of art. The melting clock measures 7.5 inch in heingt, 5 inch width and 6 inch in depth.
3. Pop Quiz Clock
This clock will remind you of your days in school when you used to have nightmares about mathematics, or some of you were in love with the numbers and equations. It has a blackboard look to it while the numbers are scrolled down to look like they have been written with a chalk. And if you want to figure out what time is it, you’ll have to solve the math problem written on the board. It can be quite a headache for some, but those who love numbers will love this clock as well.
4. Bent Hands Clock
The bent hands clock is ideal for those who want to keep a track of time in different countries. This clock has a single spiralling hand placed inside concentric circles. Names of different countries are written within these circles and the points are linked. This clock also adds to the beauty of your room as its design makes it look like a showpiece.
5. Uber cool Twinkle clock
This twinkle clock has hand-bent neon tubes with sparkling green light. The base is laser-cut aluminium and the center is hand painted. The linear movement of the light project in the room and the disappear. The clock looks attractive and is very high on the bling quotient. It is not suited for those who like the sober look. However, it would be a great addition to the room for those who love the glitz and sparkle.
6. Digilog Clock
The design of the clock is simple and there’s nothing much to talk about on that aspect. But the clock is unique in its own way. This clock is a combination of the digital and analog. While the analog hand shows the minutes, the hours are displayed digitally in top of the clock. It may not have an innovative design or any bling, but it definitely is a unique piece. A worthy addition to your room.
7. Good Afternoon Clock
The Good Afternoon Clock is nothing but a mere circle. This clock neither has a face nor hands. So how does it tell the time? This clock has slits on the inside of the circle from which three light beams emit to tell the time. It can be placed on the wall or any other flat surface. This complicated time piece may not appeal to all as why would anyone want to take such pain to figure out the time. But it may still be able to find a place in offices.
8. Spire Clock
The Spire clock has been inspired by the Japanese fan. The two hands of the clock are the spiral form at two ends. It also folds and unfolds like a Japanese fan.
So, these were some highly innovative and artistic clocks. As you can see, these clocks no longer just fulfill the need to know the time but are also a piece of art that adorn your house.
