vadim kibardin: white + white clock now in production

‘white + white’ by vadim kibardin

russian designer vadim kibardin has created ‘white + white’ clock, a contemporary three-dimensional manifestation of a traditional digital clock. the white LED digits are set in a frame crafted from white ABS plastic measuring 285mm x 35mm x 110mm. the design offers the option for both 12 and 24 hour display modes in addition to the standard user-implementation of the date, time and alarm settings. the piece interacts with its environment as the time display may dim or brighten according to the presence or absence of external light. kibardin designed ‘white + white’ to function with mains electricity and proves to be highly portable with a mains-operated AC universal power adaptor. the clock’s power may be supplemented by battery, should the issue of a power outage arises.

the designer first conceived and publicized his ‘black + white’ interpretation of the project in 2009. the production of the project was postponed in order to conduct further research and refine the design. kibardin’s initial concept has now been realized as a white-on-white design. the clock was made available for pre-sale in november of 2011 and is now in production in 2012.

  • This is a very good looking product. Would love to take it in our assortment at our [url=http://www.elektrotechnik-licht-boerse.de/]shop[/url]. The price is a little bit high. Presell-price is 8.80.. that’s no small amount for a clock, even it’s from a known designer, in my opinion 🙂
