During this year’s Dutch Design Week, Vij5 launched 10 designs in 10 weeks, with Graphic Time finishing up the event in style. Designed by the Eindhoven-based Raw Color studio, the wall clock provides a graphical take on the functional object while also offering a creative solution to track the passage of time. The kinetic sculpture features three colored half-circle discs that represent the hours, minutes, and seconds. Their constant movement not only translates the current time in an abstract composition that looks like a work of art, but also changes the appearance of the clock. Perforated to reduce the timepiece’s weight, the discs give the Graphic Time a subtle industrial vibe which complements its artistic design.
While currently in development, the abstract wall clock is available to pre-order from the Vij5 website. For now, you can select between nude/lagoon/pine or slate/sky/aubergine colorways. Graphic Time made its debut as part of the ‘10 products in 10 weeks’ event, appearing not only at the Dutch Design Week, but also at Maison & Objet in Paris, and at the London Design Fair.
