Clocks

Norm Steel Wall Clock

Before you turn your eyes away from this steel wall clock from Norm Architects for Menu, take a look at the bold blue color option. Even if you already have enough clocks in your home, it’s hard to resist a blue so bright. With simple hands and a traditional round face, it would fit in effortlessly into any room, even more so if you go with a quieter color. The four color options were chosen for their connection to the Scandinavian climate.

Brick Wall/Desk Clock Copper

A flip clock will never lose its charm, probably because of its analog appeal. There’s something nice about hearing a soft click or flutter as a minute passes, and it’s a welcome alternative to all of those digital screens surround us. This Brick Flip Clock has a beefier case of copper, welded and brushed by hand, so it’ll add a sleek vibe to your home or office. Hang it on the wall or leave it out on a desk or tabletop.

Moak Clock

Who wants a cute yet sturdy concrete clock? Designed by the Netherlands-based Studio PS, the Moak Clock has its base and hands made of concrete. The minute hand has just a touch of bright orange on its tip to set it apart from the hour. An oak dial finishes off the material mix.

11+ World Clock

This might seem like just a simple grey clock, but it has a clever rolling mechanism that allows it to display 24 different time zones. The hands work independently from the body, so you can roll the clock to whatever time zone you wish, and then roll it back to the local time. Only the side shows each time zone, leaving the face free of any extra graphics.

ThePresent

You have clocks all around you, so why do you need another one? Well, what if you could see a visual representation of the year? ThePresent is an annual analog clock; the hand completes one revolution every 365 days. Seeing the slow progression of a year might help put your hurried daily chores and duties into perspective. Dare I say you might even slow down and spend some time in reflection?

Titan LED Clock Radio

A clock radio? What, is it 1985? That’s what you’re thinking, but, trust me, this one has all the bells and whistles that you’d want, without the pesky overview of emails and appointments your phone flashes at you every single time you pick it up. Also, did you know that looking at a bright screen at night to check the time can disrupt your sleep? Smartphones are full of small catastrophes, aren’t they? So, rethink that 1985 reference and pay attention.

DesignWright’s Titan LED Clock Radio has the LED display within the speaker grill, which softens the numbers to a pleasing glow. Yes, there’s the AM/FM settings, snooze bar, an auto-dimmer, six recordable radio stations, electronic volume, a telescopic antenna, and an MP3 amplifier, but all you really care about it that it looks cool.

Nimbus Dashboard

Not that you need to be more connected, but this 4-dial dashboard will help you track what’s important. It’s customizable, so you get to pick what info it displays- it’ll wake you up, but maybe you also want to know the weather, how many emails you have, what the morning traffic is like, or just what day it is… the Nimbus will show you it all via each dial/barometer. It syncs in real time, so the data will be accurate. Maybe that means you’ll pick up your phone less? We can hope. Think of it as a desk top accompaniment or a bedside starting point.

Pieces of Time Wall Clock

No numbers needed, this clock simply tells the time with 12 pie-shaped ash wood inlays. The wood grain differs slightly with each section, giving a subtle nod to the standard clock image without sacrificing its minimal face. The Pieces of Time Wall Clock is produced by Discipline, and, if you’re in the UK/EU region, you may purchase the clocks directly from their website.

Countdown Clock

I’m sure there’s not a lot of these in stock, and considering the sale price of $50 (reg.$145.00) it’ll be sold out sooner than you can say ‘how many days until my next vacation’ two hundred times fast. So, how many days until your next vacation? If you had this clock you would know, as it has a specific countdown and a place to note the event. So, no more forgetting that special anniversary, wondering how much time is left to for holiday shopping, etc. The clock can countdown from 999 days and there are 33 different occasions to select.

The Alarming Clock

Here’s a different sort of alarm clock whose sound depends entirely on what you put in front of it. Huh? The signal sounds like a woodpecker drumming against a tree, but if you put a vase of water, or some other vessel or surface, against the ‘beak’ or nose, then you’ll create a different sound. Unfortunately, it’s available only to residents in the UK or Europe, but you can put your name on the waiting list if you live elsewhere. Watch the video below to hear/see an example.

Felt Wall Accessories

Hmm, these felt wall accessories would look oh-so-soft and organized in an entryway or above a desk, though it could get a little pricey should you choose to spring for several all at once. I smell a DIY project for someone handy with a drill and staple gun (and precut wood tiles, magnets, clock movement, etc.).

What is it?

Yes, you guessed it, it’s a clock. It doesn’t take too much to recognize the relative size of hour and minute hands, but the absence of a face does set this Wyzer Wall Clock apart from the others. The green and grey color combinations also make this wall clock slightly strange- in a nice way, of course- as that part of the color wheel is often overlooked when it comes to interior furnishings.
