Clocks

Weather Master Wall Clock

Whenever it rains (as it is now) the thought of a hygrometer comes to mind, as if I’d actually pay attention to the humidity levels. If you’re more committed to understanding weather pattens than I, perhaps you’d use a combination thermometer and hygrometer wall clock? It’s not water proof (pity), so do be careful about where you place it… perhaps a covered patio area or porch? There’s also a few variations in color and design (see below).

Punkt AC01 Alarm Clock

United Kingdom-based designer Jasper Morrison presents a modern spin on the traditional analog alarm clock that’s so striking in its simplicity and aesthetics that it’ll make you want to ditch your cell phone as your alarm clock. A clever manual switch activates the alarm and the status will be clearly displayed on the dial. A gentle squeeze of the clock illuminates the face. Glow-in-the-dark hands displays the time in any light setting. These very user-friendly features coupled with a solid aluminum casing and scratch-resistant glass lens makes for a properly designed and lust-worthy object.

Alba Me Alarm Clock

Furni has a few new versions of their Alba Me clock, and they just might tempt you to change out your existing alarm. Why, you ask? Well, how about some felt covering a sleek little black box? Or, a nice grey concrete shell with a grey metal grill? Watch the video for a quick visual on the Alba Me clock, and then check out the versions to see for yourself.

4th Dimension Concrete Clock

It’s fair to say that there aren’t many clocks made of concrete. Though this particular hand made wall clock is striking in its choice of materials, I wonder just how heavy it is and what would be the means of securing it to the wall. The play of light and shadow would be interesting as it changes with time, for sure.

Moon Clock

I realize I have a predilection for home accessories that would fit in a seven or eight year old kid’s room (see newly posted Ohoy wallpaper, and bltd tag: moon, just to name a couple of examples), and that’s probably why I can’t ignore this moon clock*. It’s glow-in-the-dark, of course, and was designed using 65 different actual photographs of the moon. It’s a shame those clips are there at the edges, but maybe one could ignore them, as they are rather small.

Twice Twice Dot Clock

This new clock by Jonas Damon is a modern interpretation of the two-sided railway station clock. You can wall mount it on its side or have it free-standing (shown below). Take note of the ship date though, unfortunately you’ll have to wait until the end of October.

Alarm Dock

At first glance, this looks like an old faux wood grain alarm clock, but look a little closer and you’ll see an iPhone. Since almost everyone uses their cell phones as alarm clocks nowadays, Jonas Damon made this dock to allow for an iPhone to appear as the display, which means a more substantial form on your bedside table. Phone, of course, is not included.

Available for pre-order.

Cardboard Pendulum Clock

This cardboard clock arrives at your door flat packed and unadorned, ready for you to assemble and decorate in whatever way you see fit. I’d be tempted to leave it as is, especially as it’s currently available with laser-etched detailing of a traditional pendulum clock’s face (limited edition of 50). There’s also a smaller Cardboard Clock for £15.00 (see below).

Bias Clock

The angled surface of this clock allows you to choose its bias. Maybe put it up high facing down towards your desk, or off to the side… either way, I like the idea of less craning-the-neck to check the time.

Bird Alarm Clock

If you’re not lucky enough to wake up to the sound of real birds chirping, you can get this alarm clock that features a chirping or beeping sound. There’s also a talking function in English and Japanese if you prefer to be told to get up and out of bed. Use the included stand for your bedside table or, if you prefer, hang it on the wall. Includes a calendar and snooze feature.

Furni Alba Me Clock

Montreal-based Furni has updated their incredibly popular Alba alarm clock. Now known as the Alba Me (for Media Edition), it now features an 1/8” auxiliary input, ten stage dimmable display, larger LED display, and contrasting silicone buttons and non-skid base. Furni does product evolution justice by adding just the right amount of upgrades and improvements without compromising the spirit of the original. Can’t wait to see the next version.

Sliced Grandfather Clock

Well, look at this. Back in 2007 when we first posted this clock it was around $80, and now, surprisingly, it costs half of what it once did. How often does that happen? I actually bought this clock for my own home (pictured here) and I still love it.

Update: Kikkerland is now producing the clock and selling it globally, hence the reduced price (it used to be handmade in Vermont). You can read a short interview with Rob Price of Thwart Design over at the Kikkerland Blog.

Max Bill Wall Clocks

Less is sometimes more. These classic clocks by Swiss industrial designer Max Bill were designed in 1957 and are, quite frankly, timeless. Perfectly proportioned and firmly in the ‘minimal’ category, these clocks tell the time with a quartz clock battery-operated (single AA battery) movement.
