The Eclipse / Clock

The Eclipse
The Eclipse

The fast pace of modern society constrains people physically and represses people on a conscious level. Because of this, the individual's lifestyle is nothing more than a mechanic repetition. A case study showed elevated tension levels in people when they become aware of the movements of the hands on a clock.
[The Eclipse] operates like a clock, but utilizes light on a measured scale.
This product may not provide the exact time, but rather stimulates the user to determine the approximate time by assessing the distance. The passage of this soft and natural light will alleviate the pressure and tension that derive from a fast-paced lifestyle.
