iF concept design award

'Feel the Time' is a watch for the blind which the sighted can also use, because of its minimalistic-symbolic design. The clock hands are rotating discs with a tangible nub. Blind people can feel for the time through the flexible membrane because of their developed sense of touch. The discs are separated by a three-dimensional ring, which together with a gap in the outer ring helps the user to orientate. The watch individually assembled, for example, the sighted can also acquire a transparent membrane.
