About Time

Dutch designer Buro Vormkrijgers' rotating concept clock "About Time" reveals the passing of time by rolling around your desk and telling time in one long continuous sentence. Vormkrijgers intends for the cone-shaped clock to subvert the minute-to-minute planning of today's over-booked lifestyles by simply telling you "It's about six o'clock" or "it's almost seven now."

It's a similar concept to the approximated timing of the Vinta Tilt Clock I featured a while back, as well as the One-Handed Watch.

Made from black anodized aluminum, it measures 230mm wide x 90mm deep and is $179 from Generate.
