Transformer

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Foldable Analog Clock

INSPIRATION:
The full circular clock face uses all eleven sheets to highlight the positioning of hour, minute, and second hands. But you do not have to fold out a standard twelve sector clock dial. Why not follow your imagination and show your creativity by modeling your own personal clock appearance? Eight unique color combinations let you more strongly feel the wide range of characteristics associated with this design. The Clock comes in Black or White, Monochrome, Multicolor, and Spotted color systems.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Transformer Clock, created to mirror your individuality. Transformer Clocks have a black or white-colored body with a framed-spring construction of eleven sheets that can fold or unfold to display or minimize the clock face. Due to this clever design, the clock compacts into a small package which reduces your delivery costs. The Transformer Clock enables you to demonstrate your creativity, to create the shape and color range of the dial to suit any type of interior.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It could grace any room in your home or your office with its colorful presence on a desk or wall. Or alternatively you can set up several clocks, each displaying a different world time zone. Black hands are seated against the warm white body, and white hands are used on the black case. It is always easy to read the time due to the sharp lines and contrast in colors between the hands and the background.
