Big Hands Clock

industrial design

Yenwen Tseng’s Big Hands Clock is a simplified play on lines. The interconnecting hands that comprise the timepiece are connected through a central pin. There is an intention of exploring the perception of time where the two hands interact inseparably and how various expressions of time at every moment.

A feature to appreciate is the hierarchy of size, and consequential function of the two hands. It is obvious, without being overt, that the series of hands are acting as hour and minute hands, without needing numeric indicators. I appreciate this subtlety immensely.

Originally from Taiwan, Yenwen Tseng studied in Stockholm and later interned in New York, and eventually started his own studio in 2011. This is one talent to watch.
