WATCHPAPER / A digital clock, integrated in wallpaper


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

This is a fully functional clock that is printed onto ordinary paper. Using a heat sensitive coating, the minutes and hours blur from one into the other in a subtle, warm and organic way. The ornamental wallpaper was used to contrast digital interactivity with our perception of traditional, static wall space. The graphic surface, however, could be changed to display any graphic or photographic motive. Using the familiar language of segmented LED displays and running from a tiny chip, WATCHPAPER can be integrated into wallpaper of any printable size. Designed to appear only when needed, it becomes an un-obtrusive element of the interior. WATCHPAPER is the first of a number of products that we are developing for a range of different applications such as interactive walls, commercial displays and customised, made-to-order installations.
