Modern Design: Shadow Clock (5 pics)

Inspired by the shadows of clouds, trees, and buildings gradually moving across the ground, Taiwanese designer Hanhsi Chen in collaboration with engineer Chiyu Chen conceptualized an innovative timepiece called the “Shadow Clock.” A modern sundial, the new wall clock uses shadows to tell time in a poetic fashion, with three arms which represent the hour, minute, and second. Not only does it add light to your surroundings, it's adjustable to add just the right amount. Equipped with a halogen light and the inner workings of a conventional quartz clock, the Shadow Clock uses minimal material to keep it simple for the user. “The simplicity of this product is giving a sense that there is only light and shadow, space and time,” says Chen.
