Eindhoven – Designer Daan Spanjers has created a method to represent time through oscillating colour spectrums.
The collection is part of the exhibition Hue, Tone and Saturation – Exploring the Dimensions of Colour, a presentation of work by a group of individual designers from the Sectie C district of Eindhoven. Drawing on the innate connection between the time of day and the transitional tones of ambient daylight and aerial conditions, the clocks offer an alternative and visual means of telling the time to traditional analogue timepieces.
The pieces have a 24-hour varying circular pattern that draws on cycles of colour that Spanjers recorded. ‘Factors like juxtaposition, dust, water, geolocation and perspective determine specific hues,’ he says.
Designers are using chromatic stimulation and dichromatic effects to bestow everyday objects with meditative qualities and a sublime presence. For more read our Euphorescence design direction. LS:N Global will be reporting live from Dutch Design Week, so keep and eye on our Seed and Shows sections.
