The Draw wall clock – a new classic timepiece
Draw wall clock, created by the designer Kazuya Koike, features in its clock-face a delicate nuance of numerical characters, which blends into any space.
“Through laying out the numbers on the face of the wall clock, I noticed some numerical character fonts are easily fit in the design of the index, and some are not so easily fit in it.”
“Therefore, my main process of designing my clock was focused on how I could “find” the best font to be applied to my project. This clock index has been created while I was drawing and erasing bars to the basic bar index with my thoughts of how the clock face would become if I approximated the index bar shape to the nuance of numeral character.”
“The clock of a white face with dome glass has an orthodox appearance and is designed to be blending into the space. And the clock of an inverted face with flat glass and the thin frame is arranged to become an accent of the space.”
Draw Wall Clock was designed for Takata Lemnos Inc, founded in 1984 as a brass casting manufacturing industry in Takaoka-city, Toyama Prefecture, Japan.
Takata Lemnos Inc. entered into the development of the original planning from late 1980 and “Lemnos Brand” recognized as the global design clock by a masterpiece “HOLA” designed by Kazuo KAWASAKI which released in 1989. Afterward, we made a lot of projects with well-known designers who worked in Japan and overseas such as Riki WATANABE, Kazuo Kawasaki, Shin Azumi, Tomoko Azumi, Kanae Tsukamoto, Nendo, etc.
