The Japanese designer Hironao Tsuboi will be presenting his new wall clock ‘Sun’, which was realised in colaboration with a Japanese outdoor brand ‘Snow peak’ and the industrial design label ’100%’, at this year’s Designtide in Tokyo, 30th October – 3rd November.

“A day begins with sunrise, it end up with sundown. The concept of time was originally discovered from the movement of stars like the sun.”

“In modern society, it has been recognized simply as numbers of clocks or measurement of the day. It is totally separated from the movement of the universe. ‘Sun’ is a clock that reminds us the time as dynamism of the universe by showing sunrise/down on its dial, according to passage of time. Also by using several of them, they enable us to intuitively compare day and night of the world. The compact size is suitable for collection such as world clocks in hotels.
