Front & Back

Clocks are a popular object to minimise, but the Front & Back clock still caught my eye – it combines uses the needed AA batteries as clock hands.

Of course, this is just a fun little thing, but it shows an important tactic in the minimising of objects: through the merge of multiple elements into one.

The Front & Back clock is designed by Korean designers Giha  Woo and Shin Go Eun, who work under the name of The Wrong Objects.
