Whether you’re aware of it or not, you are constantly aware of the time in large part due to the position of the sun and the brightness outside. This minimalistic clock designed by Yicong Lu takes inspiration from this concept and reinforces hour and minute hand time-telling with a shade changing face. As it grows darker outside, so does the saturation of the clock face. Simultaneously, the hands transition to the opposite, becoming lighter so they maintain visibility. Its clean, monochromatic aesthetic is soothing and easy on the eyes while the arms cast a shadow on the clock face complimenting the ambient light.
