A Clock and a Stool

Tape Measure Clock

Japanese Design collective, N.O.L have a thing for off beat clocks as you can see from the amount of concepts they’ve developed including two where they combined stools with clocks. The first concept is called the Tape Measure Clock that show the current time not only from the front but also from the side.

The Dim clock

The Dim clock indicates the time with LED behind the fabric.

Felt Clock and Stool

The Felt Clock and Stool is an unusual combination where the face of the stool can be reused as a clock.


The ho.ta.ru stool makes a better combo because you can use it as a clock and as a seat. There is LED underneath the seat fabric that shows the time.


The Split splits the two hands with one hand showing only the hour and the other, the minute.


And finally, N.O.L’s sole clock that has been released commercially – The Peep which hides the entire watch face except for the current time. You can buy one from here.

More Clocks

Aitkenhead Clock

Designer Ross McBride has always had this thing for clocks even though he isn’t from the watch and clock industry. Most of his work usually remains in the concept stage even though he has launched his own watch brand.

In the first of the three concepts, The Aitkenhead Clock features a clockface where the hour hand keeps time from the clock’s center while the minute hand orbits around. The minute hand is actually fixed to the surface which rotates.

The Sinking Clock

The Sinking Clock that appears to be lodged into your desk or your floor depending on where you use it.

The Wave Clock

And finally, the Wave clock which is part timepiece, and part kinetic sculpture. Its hands are ball bearings moved by magnets below the clock’s surface.

Cone Clock

Cone Clock is an interesting student project where instead of a typical clock that consists of a box with a graphical time scale at the front, the clock is reduced to only an hour hand, and any flatsurface becomes the face. According to the project designer, the clock is meant to be personal and subjective.

Duvet Body Clock

Loop’s Rachel Wingfield and Mathias Gmachl have created a personalised alarm clock that is integrated into your bedding. Drawing inspiration from how light has controlled our body clock by telling us when to sleep and when to wake, the duo have created a pillow and duvet that simulate a natural dawn that ease you into your day by using electroluminescent technology to turn the textile surface into a reactive light source.

Apart from the novelty of, the clock is also supposed to treat sufferers of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) where insufficient levels of daylight cause medical conditions caused by a hormonal imbalance ranging from depression to loss of energy, pre-menstrual syndrome, weight gain and migraines.

Wall Clock Redefined

This gives new meaning to the word “Wall Clock” – Three designers from the Royal College of Art (The very same university where the designer behind the Paper Clock was from) have come up with an innovative use of heating elements and ink that allows graphics, words and numbers to be displayed within a concrete.

Very similar in concept to the paper clock, the “Chronos Chromos Concrete” as it is called, uses Thermochromic ink, which is mixed with the concrete.

Nickel chromium wires are set beneath the concrete surface, which heats up when an electric current passes through. When a certain temperature is reached, the concrete above the wire changes color, thus creating the visual.

Of course, the display of graphics and information depends on the arrangement of the wires.
