Giving a shape to time.
 
After experimenting night shift work, I understood that our living habits are based on our rythm of life.
Therefore, a day is the reflection of our lifestyle, of our personnality.
 
This led me to a broader question : 
Could time be shaped? 
And how our daytime be reflected on our environnement? 
 
 
concept
The solution lives in the materialisation of the time itself. 
 
​Through this clock, the user is invited to "fold" the time using his hand. The user can litterally highlight a specific time of their day and communicate it to their surrounding.
experimentations
manipulation
The user programs manually a time of the day that is special to him. 
When this time comes, the light placed on the needle of the clock meets the teinted glass, letting a bright light shine.
The "folded-time" is highlighted at the right moment.
Then, thank to a magnet inside the clock, the second skin will be folded up in a second time.
