The O'clock is one big ass clock

Lucy Hedges Tech 1 Comment


The colossal Oclock sure is one behemoth of a timepiece. It would appear the creator, architect Anthony Duffeleer, has stolen the bat signal, hollowed it out and replaced the bat motif with a clock face (just me then?). There’s no denying, this thing is obtrusive. But that’s the point. Not into conspicuous gadgetry? Then this really isn’t for you.

It’s a lot lighter than it looks, so it shouldn’t break your back when trying to make it fit in with the rest of your décor. Based on its shape, it’s safe to say the Oclock won’t be hanging from your walls, but it will prettify your floor. What kind of house it would fit in beats me (perhaps a really trendy office or studio style apartment), but it sure scores high in cool points.

It’s available on request. So, always dreamed about having an oversized timepiece adorning your living room floor? The dreaming ends here.

    From the look of it, there are a couple of things wrong with this clock.

    1. It looks like it would really easy to nudge so it rolls and faces another direction.

    2. If it rolls too far so the face rotates around 90 degrees or more, then it would be showing the wrong time. 10:15 (as in the picture) would become 1:30, for example.

    But maybe there is a fixed weight inside to keep it oriented one way, despite appearances.

    3. Scale things up in size isn’t simple. With a clock like this, dust and tiny nicks and mars on the transparent cover would become extremely noticeable. But grandfather clocks don’t have that issue, or if they do, it isn’t a flaw.

    And the design is very Lightweight 70’s Modern; it is restrained, but in the wrong way.

    Otherwise, I like the idea of a floor clock of that scale. But it should really go pow. I would like to see Karim Rashid’s version.
