Disc Clock

The quotidian ritual of telling the time is not usually marked by pleasure but, rather, by necessity. Re-imagining the timepiece to become one of more aesthetic value, designer Rachel Gant, co-founder of Yield Design Co., envisaged the Disc Clock. Incorporating the function and motion of an everyday desk clock, this particular time-telling contraption features discs floating on an axis in place of hands, with the negative space revealing the time of day. The clock is constructed from ceramic with lasercut oak discs and is also backlit to make it easy to view amidst the cloak of darkness.
