LEFF Amsterdam Base Clock

Designer duo Kranen/Gille initially created the Base clock because they believe every designer needs a timepiece in their portfolio, even though they agree with LEFF Amsterdam that nobody really needs a clock.

The design of the base clock was inspired by a visual language the designers developed by gathering industrial production archetypes. They took industrially determined shapes and details, and used these characteristics to create a new shape. Since the shape is unique, yet recognisable, the design is open to interpretation. Everyone sees something else, which, to Kranen/Gille, is the definition of a good design. 

The base clock is handmade by Cor Unum, a ceramic art centre based in the Netherlands.
