maarten baas analog digital clock for iphone

dutch designer maarten baas presented an iphone version of his analog digital clock during milan design week 2010.

instead of a presentation space, maarten baas rented a private apartment (in the lambrate district) for a week, where he shows the app.

this year maarten took a break from the red hot production machine of milan. instead of another new collection, he has developed last year’s real time concept, in which actors are manually indicating the time.

it resulted in another very collectable baas-product, for less than a euro. download it to your iphone, and take a break in our temporary ’99 cent’- bar.

go to the app store on your iphone, go to ‘search’, type ‘maarten baas’, download the app. or go to itunes .

the temporary ’99 cent’- bar – inside the apartment, baas is offering drinks to visitors

menu: red wine, white wine, beer, tea, coffee, coca-cola, orange juice, the newest maarten baas product … euro 0,99

‘the analog digital clock as an iPhone app is exactly how it should be, yet this product only needs to cost one dollar.’ – maarten baas

baas’ real time collection is a concept in which actors are being filmed for 12 hours while they are indicating the time.

the film functions as a clock (yet it’s often described as video-art).

the analog digital clock that is part of this collection, is a re-reading of the old-school alarm clock, yet every minute an actor is changing the numbers manually. this clock app has been programmed by svarovsky productions ltd

svarovsky productions ltd is a software consultancy based on the work of jan svarovsky and his contacts in the disciplines of programming, art and design.

  • everyone needs a break to make a comeback..! Perhaps this is what that is needed for most designers who are coming out with ideas that are not well thought out.. Big names have been a disappointment lately
