Monolith (Table Clock) by Emre Bakir
2010 - 2011, Silver A' Digital and Electronic Devices Design Award Winner
Inspiration
We have not got only one source of inspiration. Maybe the concept of space-time
Creativity
Everyone can use a universal clock. The intention behind Monolith is to reveal the stereotypes related to time and clocks, and reveal a different aspect of these concepts. Monolith offers a new perspective on telling the time. This clock has been designed like a fine art work, for if time is universal, so too should be the form of the clock.
Design Challenges
Although it ends up being rather simple, starts really deep. This is a clock whose roots go all the way back to the history of humanity, the realization of time, and the portrayal of it in written or sculpted form. We recall ancient Egyptian Priests, Celtic Druids, Roman Engineers, and Renaissance Artists, each of them attempting to specify time with a single boundary. To break out of the notion that all time is a boundary, and that although time is but a moment, it’s always moving in more than one dimension, “Monolith,” have taken time to two sides. This clock is a block, and on two sides of it the time is displayed.
Production Technology
It can be made in any colour. Its display consists of LEDs and use PICT software, and its surfaces are polished glass or plastic. Monolith have got an alarm function and is powered by batteries.
