Nicolas Cheng sent us two of his projects; Pocket Watch Alarm Clock and Mix Culture. The Clock (above) contrasts old and new with a slot for a traditional pocket watch on one side and an LED alarm clock on the other. Says Cheng; “The [watch] collector just collects it as an antique object more than a watch. The aim is to give the pocket watch new value… it becomes revalued as an alarm clock”. Mix Culture is the “union of eastern and western cultures” via tableware. It’s a set of mixed eating utensils from the East and the West that have their unique functions and characters when used separately, but when stacked together “have the function of keeping food warm and forms a decorative centerpiece”.
