Kaari

This design is based on a standard 24h analogue mechanism (half-speed hour hand). This design is provided with two arc shaped die cuts. Through them, the turning hour and minute hands can be seen. The hour hand (disc) is divided in two segments of different colours that, rotating, indicate AM or PM time depending on the colour that starts being visible. The minute hand is visible through the bigger radius arc and determines which minute slot corresponds to the 0-30 minutes dials (located on the inner radius of the arc) and the 30-60 minutes slot (located on the outer radius).

Moon Curve

The natural world is in constant movement as it balances between order and chaos. A good design is created from the same tension. Its qualities of strength, beauty and dynamism stem from the artist's ability to remain open to these opposites during the act of creation. The finished piece is the sum of countless choices the artist makes. All thought and no feeling will result in work that is stiff and cold, whereas all feeling and no control yields work that fails to express itself. The intertwining of the two will be an expression of the dance of life itself.

SCRIPT

Script offers a new way of displaying time. Since the 1970’s the seven segment display has been the standard choice for almost any electrical product that displays numbers, from calculators and digital clocks to washing machines and ovens. It’s a simple and efficient technical solution, but lacks the elegance of a beautiful typeface. The Script font shares the same principle of a segmented display, but rearranges the segments to create an entirely new digital typeface, giving the numbers a flowing, more human quality. The large display is framed by a simple case in black or white with a soft pillowed reverse, creating a strikingly thin and elegant form. There are no other features or markings to detract from the Script font and the clock also displays seconds, allowing users to appreciate the graceful transition from one number to the next. The clock’s reverse has three flush buttons to set the time and holes for hanging. Alternatively it can be placed on a table or desk using a removable stand stored in the battery compartment. The Script range also includes an alarm clock and wrist watch.
