Naoki Terada’s stunning new clock designs are Carved. Subtle, yet noticeable, the numbers on the clocks are carved indents cut so close to the edge of the faces that the top of them are chopped off. The shadows of the carved-out letters bring a 3-dimensional impression to the clock face, with its appearance changing in accordance with lights located in its immediate area.
