Wall Clocks

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.

Paper Clocks

Modern clocks come in pretty much any shape and size imaginable. These Time Paper clocks depart from the shape of traditional cases in favor of a flattened poster. Stating at $63, they’re a bit pricey for what they are, but hey, how hard could this be to make? Any Japanese readers out there feel free to chime in on some of the product details, I’m not going to trust Google Translate on this one.

Mozia Wall Clocks

These clocks from Diamantini and Domeniconi are made from large, thin aluminium sheets in bold colors. They’re spectacular in a group (as shown above and below), and would create a great focal point for a large wall that needs some oomph. All that said, the different prices from various retailers have my head spinning. I’ve included a few links (below pics) that you might want to reference before purchasing.

Print-and-fold Vertical Sundial Generator

Cool, you can make your own sundial through this website. With the help of Google maps, you enter in a location and pick a wall of whichever building you’ll hang the sundial on, then simply print out, fold, and hang your custom sundial. It’s free, so there’s no harm in seeing how well it works.

Blink Clock

Inspired by Braille, this clock benefits the Foundation Fighting Blindness. So, you get a nice minimal clock plus the knowledge your money is going towards a good cause.

Recycled Clock & Thermometer Classic

Check it, this guy is made from recycled vending machine coffee cups. Apparently the material feels sort of like natural slate and can be used inside or outdoors.

Real Time analog digital clock

If you’ve got $1,275 to spend, listen up. Dutch designer Maarten Baas‘ Real Time exhibition in Milan this past April is now on Blu-Ray*. That’s right, you can now own a 12 hour long movie in which a performer acts out the motion of a digital clock by painting over and wiping off panels of a glass screen.

Extra Normal Wall Clock

You might have seen the Extra Normal Watch by Ross McBride, but have you noticed there’s a wall clock version as well? The laser-cut opening acts as the hour hand, which reveals the time as it travels around the face.

Chroma Lab Clocks

It’s been a while since I’ve checked out Supermarket, so I forgot how easy it is to get lost paging through all the recent additions. One collection that stood out was Chroma Lab, mainly for their simple-yet-colorful clocks. Funny enough, these aren’t the colorful ones, but they’re the ones I liked the most. Each clock is built by hand and either hand painted or screen printed.

Faux Bois Pretend Clock, $79.00
Digital Clock, $59.00

Ultra Flat Clock, Black and White

If the Ultra Flat Wall Clock was way too colorful for your taste, then you’ll be happy to see this black and white version. Just like the color version, it’s half an inch thick, which makes it one of the thinnest clocks in the world.

Designed by Thomas Buchheim.

Take a look at these laser-etched Neverend Clocks. It’s a first edition of a series created by Kitsune Noir and Furni, with each edition featuring artwork from a different designer/artist. This particular one is by wallpaper designer and artist Dan Funderburgh, and if you’re not familiar with that name, you’re in for a treat. We’ve posted his Chinatown Toile and Flower Pedal wallpaper before, but there’s much more to be seen at his site.
