Lemnos

Numbers Clock PLY

design : Yota Kakuda

These clocks are made of circular plywood in the same way as the tambourine frames that Lemnos has utilized in many of its previous clocks.
Numbers Clock PLY employs largish numbers that are extremely easy to see with this frame.
Lines Clock PLY utilizes longer hour and minute hands, with the intention of attributing them with the same level of presence as the numbers on the face.
With both, the overall balance and the details were decided on with a premium placed on ease of visibility.
