Two-timer by Industrial Facility

two-timer-small-black1

Designer Sam Hecht of Industrial Facility launched his Two-Timer clocks for Established & Sons, which allow the time in two time zones to be displayed on one clock face.

“It’s as if everyone these days has come from or is going to somewhere else… ” explains Hecht. “Two-Timer is a useful expression of this modern condition, merging two different time zones into one clock.”

TWO-TIMER
Many cities, with London no exception, continue to experience the mass movement of people. It’s as if everyone these days has come from somewhere else. The Two Timer clock acknowledges this modern condition with two clocks sharing the same dial.

How curious an idea - it’s as if a finger has stretched a round clock to form a little corner – an offspring, if you like. Two quartz movements, with a carefully devised dial, are housed in a steel frame.

Designed in two sizes, it will sit happily in the home, the office, the hospital, the hotel, the airline lounge, or the foyer of a financial building. It illustrates that even with different time zones we are of one world.

Clock Delay by StudioBloomm

bloom1

Dutch designers StudioBloomm have produced a clock that displays the hours, minutes and seconds on three separate cogs.

bloom2

Here’s some info from the designers:

Concept: We buy products, use products and when they are broken, we throw them away. Rarely we repair. In this way we lose our sense of interest in technology. Clock Delay brings this feeling back.

bloom3

Technique: A mechanism consisting of three cogwheels: one for hours, one for minutes, and one for seconds. No pointers needed: the time is shown at the point where the wheels nearly meet.

bloom4

Material: Clock Delay has been carried out in Stainless Steel & Aluminium. Produced in The Netherlands.

Dimensions: L35 W35 H48 cm

Design: STUDIObloomm, Bas van Leeuwen, The Netherlands

Ora Ameba designed by Denis Guidone

denis20

Ora Ameba (below) shows only the tips of the watch hands.

The hands have no centre. They are the opposite of those on a normal watch. Amoeba because the fact that there is no centre refers to the contemporary city, which has multiple centres. The centre becomes imaginary or metaphorical, or a cultural centre, an economical centre, a historical centre.

Ora Vago designed by Denis Guidone

denis19

Ora Vago (above) is meant to resemble the hands of a compass.

The hands resemble those of a compass. We are talking about being disoriented, about losing yourself in a contemporary city with the resulting sense of insecurity. The image is that of an imprecise compass.
