Duncan Hellmers has designed an awesome looking retro styled clock called the Blub Uno that uses a single tube to both add a unique look and also more importantly let you tell the time.
The Blub Uno is contracted from machined aluminium, glass, bamboo and is powered via USB connection, watch the video below to learn more.
“How often do you want to keep looking at a clock after it has already told you the time? Probably not often! We have time-telling products all around us, but we only tend to notice them when we need them. I wanted to create a clock which can hold its own as an object of function when you need it and beauty when you don’t. This became Blub Uno.
The individual glowing numbers, housed in a glass cylinder, are a beautiful alternative to the common digital and analogue displays we’re all used to seeing. To complement the retro feel of the display, the electronics are mounted in a sleek housing machined from solid aluminium, giving it a modern aesthetic which fits in to any home or office setting. Its small size makes it ideal for small spaces, yet the large display makes it readable from anywhere in larger rooms.”
