Clock A / B / C

design : Yota Kakuda

These clocks have a unique function which allows them to be instantly recognizable and easy to read due to the size and location of the numbers, even though the overall clock size remains small.

“about Clock C”
The original typeface for “clock c” was initially formed on moulded aluminum numbers produced in 1951, found by the designer in a local flea market. Taking inspiration from these, they have been reworked with a delicate and precise touch to create a bold impact.
