IMNU Wall Clock by Jara Freund

Home > Winners > #65362


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
IMNU

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Wall Clock

INSPIRATION:
I was inspired by the thermal bath Vals in Switzerland. The architect Peter Zumthor designed the building based on a quarry and knowingly leaves out amusement elements such as slides or bubble baths. A bathing experience reduces to the essentials. Furthermore, you won't find a clock on the wall.. They are hidden in metal pipes that stick out of the ground. When you look into them you can read the time. IMNU is designed in such a way that it has an understated nature and a subtle appearance.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Imnu is an innovative concept of the wall clock that fits into every environment and interior. The clock face is a thin disc which seems to float on the wall. The hands bend from the back towards the center of the clock and run outside around the disc. As known from conventional clocks, the short hand indicates the hour, the long one the minutes. The clock hands are balanced by a counterweight and thus rotate around the dial without loss of power. The overall impression is filigree, reduced and light. The wall clock has a subtle elegance.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Although the clock face is reversed, the time is still easy to read and recognisable without much guessing. Since the hanger aligns the clock to 12 o clock, a dial is not necessary. Furthermore the small branding on the clock face states a visual horizontal.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project evolved during a semester in 2016 and kept my attention ever after. Now I reached a point where I can say that I am very happy with the result.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The clock face and the clock hands are made of aluminum. They are punched out and a little piece of pipe is welded onto the clock plate to connect the clockwork to it. The metal parts are finished with a powder coated and the branding is placed on the clock face.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Specifications for a white clock with black pointers: Clock diameter: 280mm Material: aluminum 1,5mm Including stud M10 Treatment: powder coating e.g. RAL9010 (white) 90%gloss Clock hand Thickness: 0.5mm RAL 9011 (black) Long clock hand: diameter 12mm Short clock hand: diameter 12.85mm Treatment: powder coating e.g. RAL9010 90%gloss

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The clock runs with a special reconstructed clockwork which allows the clock hands to spin from the outside. It took quite a while and finding a solution for the clock to work. I worked together with a specialist for clockworks (Maximilian Schubert) on this design challenge which resulted in a successful joint collaboration.

CHALLENGE:
Design Challenge: The redefinition of one of the most classic designs, the clock. Technical Challenge: It is not possible to implement the concept with commercial quartz clockworks. There is no possibility to connect the clock face with the clockwork without the hands coming in between any fixing point. Therefore the clock runs with special reconstructed clockwork which allows the clock hands to spin from the outside. Finding a solution was a technical challenge but resulted in a smart add-on which is mounted onto an existing clock movement.
