The sun reaches its highest position at noon, which is presumably why clock faces place the “12” where they do. But London-based design firm Animaro has taken clock design a step further with their Solstice, whose form itself expands and contracts in synchronicity with the sun’s position. At noon, the Solstice clock reaches full-size; as it creeps towards 6pm, the clock shrinks with the sun’s rays.
The £395 clock (about USD $513) has successfully been Kickstarted, with $24,038 in pledges on a $32,465 goal at press time. If you want one, there’s still 28 days left in the campaign.
