Sometimes it’s hard to build a beautiful home around ordinary items but decorating a new abode doesn’t have to be an exercise in boredom. Leave behind trite trinkets and outdated décor and embrace the bold, clean lines of modernism even when practical needs must be honored. How? Start with this 4-in-1 Twist Clock fresh from the Museum of Modern Art product collection.
MoMA is known for breaking boundaries and thrilling art lovers from all over the world and now they’ve broadened access to contemporary masterpieces by inviting a wide range of artists to create functional works that the public can install in their own homes. This clock, created in 2011 by David Lau, is a multitasking wonder, but you wouldn’t know it just by looking. The plastic and rubber design seems simple at first glance but a closer examination reveals four key functions: time, alarm, date, and temperature. All can be set with a few quick clicks of the sleek integrated controls and there are no pesky wires, garish buttons, or needless bells and whistles to disrupt the piece’s flow.
If you know someone who loves technology but also prizes streamlined design, this would be the perfect gift, but it’s also a brilliant present for anyone who prefers uncluttered surroundings and the uncomplicated nature of easy-to-operate gadgets.
