Why We Chose This
Dutch designers Scholten & Baijings are known for the subtlety of their designs and skillful use of color. With the Penumbra clock, they wanted to create an illusion. In order for only the neon tips of the hands to appear through the frosted dome and for the back of the clock to cast it's orange shadow on the wall, a custom clock case needed to be developed. The resultant case is essentially two convex pieces that combine to achieve the desired floating effect.
