The designers have also developed a typeface derived from letter forms created by banks of clocks.

Here’s some text from humans since 1982:

we are designstudents at HDK Göteborg in Sweden and gathered under the name “humans since 1982″.

After having successfully launched our “Surveillance Light” and our lounger “Celebrating the cross 1″ we now developed a prototype of a wall clock: we call it “The clock clock”. Hereby 24 manual alarm clocks show the time in a digital manner.

Marc Owens’ Receipt Clock

reciept1

Post-graduate student Marc Owens has designed a faceless clock that prints the time and date on a paper receipt.

The Receipt Clock takes the form of a wall-mounted machine with a single button which, when pressed, prints on paper from a roll and delivers the receipt through a slot.

The user then tears off the receipt, which also has a series of printed lines that can be used to write messages relevant to the particular moment.

“Whether it be on a bus ticket, auto bank statement or shop receipt, the presence of the printed time and date are all consistently featured,” Owens says. “I am interested in how this documentation of a specific time and date can be applied to time keeping generally. This product allows for a more private interaction with time.”

The clock shown here is a prototype; Owens says the first complete version will be ready in the next few weeks.

Owens is currently studying the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art in London.

His OCD Light Switch (below), which records the number of times it has been switched on and off as an aid to people with obsessive compulsive disorder, was one of the highlights of the New Designers showcase of graduate design work.

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.

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
