The incentive behind the F.O Clock, which was inspired by the Japanese folding arts of Furoshiki (cloth), and Origami (paper), was to enable user discovery through a product’s physical properties. The process of discovery allows the user to learn something new about the product, strengthening the user’s intimate bond with the object while increasing the overall value through long-term use.

The design of the F.O clock is based on a modern blend of simplicity, namely the materials, with complexity, in that it can be ‘folded’ and ‘unfolded’. This kind of user choice, when concealing or revealing the internal rib structure, creates an elegant contrast and a distinct sense of individuality between each object.
