  • I think you guys are probably right (christian Postma may have had come up with this concept originally), however; this clocks inspiration does not make it any less valid as the designers own concept. Whats next? would you say they ripped off the inventor of the clock because its made of clocks!

    meyou says:
  • maybe that is an exaggeration..(inventor of clocks comment) but you get what I mean.
