Eclipse / Wanduhr

Eclipse
Eclipse

Traditional clock divides time into segments, so we get used to measure time with hours, minutes, seconds. Somehow we feel a little bit tense reading time in this way. Back to the ancient time, when accurate machine hadn't been invented, people perceive time through light and shadow naturally.
Here comes this elegant clock. The way it indicating the time looks like eclipse. It's made of organic electroluminescent material. We can recognize time through the movement of the light and the shadow on the plate. The shadow and the light changes quietly just like time itself. Simple but exquisite.
