What time is it? Look up, you’ll know. Perhaps that’s the kind of conversation you’ll be having when you have Time Stretch clock. Designed by Scott Young, a Detroit-based designer, this unique clock that looks like a smoke detector will project the hands of clock around the entire room. Scott said that before the invention of the clock or other time telling devices, people used to read the time of day by watching the sun above. Inspired by this tradition, Scott has designed an innovative timepiece to channel this tradition on a smaller scale. Time Stretch will also challenge the way we have now been taught to tell time.
This clock will also become a unique décor element in any living space through the strategically placed beams of light. It features futuristic and elegant design to offer a new way to both read and tell the time.
Tuvie has received “Time Stretch” from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
