PinTheTime Planner Clock by F. Saffari and Z. Ghiasi and H. Farsi

Home > Winners > #101637


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
PinTheTime

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Planner Clock

INSPIRATION:
PinTheTime clock ambition was to help to have a more organized daily timeline. There are now hundreds of planning apps; however, not only technology brings thousands of distractions along with itself, but also sometimes it is the reason for delays in people's plans. There are still many people who prefer to write their tasks and stick them, though it is hard to recognize priorities. Therefore, the PinTheTime clock is designed to develop this process.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
People usually prefer writing down their plans to be in their sight, PinTheTime is designed to sort all of those messy notes. The user writes down the task and pins it on the part of the clock, which is related to the desired time of day. A complete round of PinTheTime clock means 24 hours. This convex felt shape with all delicate Cross-stitch sewing, implies time like a chubby little friend on the wall, which makes each touch calming, to have a more relaxing approach to time in these modern cold times.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
There are simple wooden pines to pin the papers onto a soft surface all over the clock face. The time is shown by a revolving clock hand, which moves around the outline of the clock, operated by an AA battery.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2018 in Isfahan and finished in July 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The process started with brainstorming around planning, the ideas then illustrated by dirty sketching and initial 3d modeling. Eventually, designing details ended up in prototyping: following laser cutting plexiglass gears, pinewood body formed by machining, meanwhile, the soft part foundation was made of layers of foam; moreover, the pattern was cut out of felt and sewn by hand, before attaching to the body by glue, at the end, all gears and engine were montaged to other parts.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
500mm x 120mm x 500mm

TAGS:
Minimal, Planner, Clock, 24-Hour Clock, Analog

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We were about to design an analog smart object which is completed by its user and we tried to look at time differently and see what time really means to us. When we look at our clock or watch we relate the time to our tasks. So, PinTheTime was born based on tasks and the user’s direct optimization on the final object. Writing tasks makes people more responsible for their schedules. And letting people detach from their phones makes them more concentrated on their activities.

CHALLENGE:
One of the challenges was how to keep the design simple as possible and do not over-design the product and give this chance to the user to add his final touches to the design, which is realized by pining personalized notes directly to the clock. Another challenge was building a 24-hour clock because there it is not so easy to find 24-hour clock motors and also they are not strong enough, so we had to design our own mechanism to have the clock working perfectly.
