Breaded Escalope’s Touch-responsive Clock Tells The Time With Shadows

Breaded Escalope’s Touch-responsive Clock Tells The Time With Shadows

Vienna design collective Breaded Escalope has created a clock that uses shadows to display the time when a finger is placed within its face Mounted onto a flat vertical surface, the Shadowplay Clock comprises a raised plywood ring with LEDs underneath that shine into its centre.

By placing a finger in the middle of the circle, the user activates sensors that turn off all but three of the lights.Each casts a shadow of the outstretched arm in the directions that clock hands would point to at that given moment. Seconds are marked by a fainter shadow than the minute and hours “hands”.
