Perhaps the Norwegian designers at SHE Studio were feeling the stress of a time crunch and, like any good designers, decided to create a solution. The result isn’t another nifty planner or nicely bound to-do list, but a remake of the problem itself: time, or, rather, a clock. However,”Myk” isn’t like any clock we’ve ever seen. The face is wrapped up with a fabric stretched taught over the surface, making the minute and hour hands mere indentations behind the surface. There are no numbers, no chimes or clicks and no bright colors. Everything is minimized, and hopefully your stress level will be too.
There is one little hangup, though. The clock runs incredibly slow (which some might prefer) because of the hands struggle to tick against the tight fabric. The designers are still working on a motor powerful enough to move the hands forward at the proper pace, because we can’t imagine anything more stressful than thinking you have an extra six hours before a deadline only to find out you’re behind. But when they get it right, we think this just might find its way on our office wall.
