Felt clock for LEFF Amsterdam (2012)

Responsibility is a big topic in my work and my process of designing products. At the beginning is always the question of the need. Material, craftmanship and technology are important considerations when creating solutions which don´t respond to trends, but rely on usability and sustainability.

I wanted the wall clock to have a distinctive nature but with a message. In the contemplation of wasting time and materials this clock is made out of 60% recycled PET. The PET felt allows a single-step production, offers sound
dampening properties and provides a non-obtrusive aesthetic.
