Biegert & Funk

The design world is full of interesting looking clocks, many of them better described as pieces of art than appliances. This one quite possibly outstrips them all.

Biegert & Funk (which is a pretty awesome name for a company) have designed the “45squared” or “QLOCKTWO” clock which displays the time purely in words. It looks a bit like that stupid eye test on the wall of every opticians, but it’s still very pretty. And it has a key advantage. There must be some of you out there like us who’ve never really learned to tell the time. It’s the big hand and the small hand – we never remember which is which. This happily escapes all of that by just telling you the time.

The comes in a variety of colours, including stainless steel, and is available as a tabletop clock or wall-mounted. It comes in six different languages, and as an iPhone app (inevitably). Even the cables to plug it in come in matching colours.

Then there’s the issue of price… The 45squared clock will set you back 900 Euros. Or 1099 if you fancy it in stainless steel. This may be a small fortune, but it is pretty awesome.
