Albert Clock
Description
MoMA Exclusive: This German-made digital clock—an update of our best-selling design—encourages intelligent thinking by inviting you to calculate the time according to six levels of difficulty. (It also includes a non-mathematical setting.) The Albert Clock’s natural walnut case makes a minimalist statement on your wall or desktop. Whether you use it in the classroom or kids’ room for its educational value, or in your office or living space for its playful aesthetic, it encourages everyone to slow down their fast-paced life—at least long enough to figure out what time it is. The Albert Clock can be set for 12- or 24-hour time, is wall-mountable and stands 6.5” tall and 13” wide.
Why We Chose This
The Albert Clock is named after Albert Einstein and inspired by an apocryphal anecdote: that Einstein was bad at math. Designer Alex Schindlbeck, who conceived this clock for a small Paris-based company, set out to turn classroom boredom into mental calculation skills. He gave the standard alphanumeric segment font a makeover, with improved readibility of numbers and mathematical symbols. This engaging educational tool caters to children's natural play instincts, and the satifsying delight of problem-solving.
