The Perspective series are five clocks composed of straight lines, each demonstrating a different approach to the dimension of time.
We all relate to time subjectively. For some, time is a crucial part of life – a motivator, a judge, a measuring stick. For others, time serves a more fluid purpose, more of a suggestion than anything else.
We developed the Perspective Series to explore the way time is experienced by different people in different ways.

THE SERIES

After the success of our first two clocks, we wanted to push things further, creating a series of clocks reflecting the different ways that people deal with the issues they encounter in their everyday lives.

Some people are systematic, approaching challenges step by step. Other view things from different angles, while some people focus directly on the target. We wanted to create a clock for just about everyone.
Why the Clocks Are Unique
The design of the Perspective Series focuses on the hands instead of the clock face, creating shapes that give meaning to the movement itself.
The hands are structures of straight white lines that rotate over a plain black face, resembling a drawing study on a canvas. Each face has a slightly different ending, emphasizing its own character.
Using only the simplest form of straight lines and exploring the way they interact, the appearance of the clocks varies from minimal to complex configuration

THE CLOCKS

D Clock – Different Angles:

Time-lapse (one minute)
This clock is a constant reminder that objects look different, depending on a point of view. The point of view has a tremendous impact on how it’s read. Someone standing directly in front of the clock will see straight lines. But from the side, another dimension of complex shapes is revealed. Not only that the hands have another physical dimension, but they also interact with each other, with one passing through the other.
• Hands: Hour, Minute, Seconds (3)
• Diameter: 220mm / 8.6 Inch

K Clock – Systematic Movement:

Time-lapse (one hour)
The hour and minute hands of the K clock are two complex assemblies of straight lines. The lines converge to a point that represents the location of the hand. In the course of one hour, each endpoint of one hand connects to each endpoint of the other. These encounters recur 143 times in a full cycle of the clock.
• Hands: Hour, Minute (2)
• Diameter: 200mm / 7.9 Inch
P Clock – Burst from Inside:

Time-lapse (one minute)
Unlike ordinary clocks, this clock displays time as a complex three dimensional composition, bursting from the centre. The hands are outline of 3D prisms that go beyond the regular face plane. The base of the P clock is cone-shaped in order to house the hands.
• Hands: Hour, Minute, Seconds (3)
• Diameter: 245mm / 9.6 Inch

V Clock – Focus on Target:

Time-lapse (one hour)
Artists in the renaissance period developed the vanishing points as a tool to represent the world with perspective. Using vanishing points, this clock gives the viewer two focal points – the hour and the minute.
• Hands: Hour, Minute (2)
• Diameter: 250mm / 9.8 Inch

Z Clock – Wander Around:

Time-lapse (one hour)
The hands of the Z clock are lines that wander around the face of the clock. This arrow shape of the hands creates many overlaps of lines, displaying various intriguing compositions.
• Hands: Hour, Minute (2)
• Diameter: 220mm / 8.6 Inch
