    Literal Wall Clock: Light and Shadow Form Elegant Timepiece








    Mankind has used shadows to tell time since before we had a name for
    telling time. From watching the sun elongate the tree shadows on the
    ground to using sundials to pinpoint the precise minute, shadows have
    been helping us keep track of our days forever. Two designers have
    brought this concept inside in a stylish and thoroughly modern way with the Shadow Clock.

    Hanhsi Chen and Chiyu Chen
    have developed the stunning Shadow Clock, which uses shadows and an
    entire wall to illuminate the time. There is no face, there are no
    numbers – there is only the simple interplay of shadow and light. A
    conventional light bulb and clock movement are pretty much all it takes
    to bring this lovely concept to life.

    The designers engineered this simple clock to be as simple as
    possible. The shadow projector moves lines of darkness across a field of
    light to indicate the time. Even if it’s less precise than a
    traditional face clock design, it’s certainly leagues more stylish. It
    would be a perfect addition to the home of anyone who values the
    simplicity and elegance of nature. It’s not only a concept: the Shadow
    Clock is a real product actually made by the design team, although
    there’s no information on how to purchase it.
